What makes an responsible and respectable American Bully owner/breeder

    Many breeds have a code of ethics and the American Bully breed should be no different. Here is a few things I feel sets responsible and respectable American Bully owners/breeders apart form your byb, those that are in it for a buck and those that are in it for the "Look at me status"

    A responsible and respectable owner/breeder

    Acknowledges the American Bully as their own breed. They do not call their American Bullies, American Pit Bull Terriers or even Pit Bulls. They are not either of these things, they are American Bullies and should be called by their given Breed name.

    They take the time to educate the uneducated, if someone calls their dog an APBT or a pit bull they should correct that person and explain to them the dog is an American Bully and not to ever be confused with the APBT or "pit bulls" That not only shows respect for the Ambully but also for the American Pit Bull Terrier.

    A responsible and respectable breeder never sells puppies with American Pit Bull Terrier paper work, this only adds to the confusion. If they want to include the APBT paper work they should not only explain to the new owner why the paper work has the dog falsely list as an APBT but also have a written contract for the new owner to sign stating he or she understands that even though the papers say APBT that the dog is an American Bully.

    A responsible and respectable breeder should never make up color names to try and place more value on their American Bully pups. Like Trindle, reverse Tris or words such as "rare" This only leads to more confusion and misleading new owners. I personally talked to the ABKC and even though their website says "All colors and patterns are allowed" American Bullies can not be registered as "Reverse Tri's or Trindles"

    A responsible and respectable owners/breeders does what is best for the American bully, this means not allowing the dog to become a fat slob. The American Bully needs exercise as do all dogs. They should not be an over weight blob at the end of a leash. American Bullies make wonderful pets but even pets deserve to be fit and healthy. Even though your dog may have great genetics is no excuse not to give your dog the exercise they need.

    The making of the American Bully was a painstaking task and took many years to develop so have respect and call it what it is, take pride in your own breed, until we as American Bully owners and breeders start standing up to what is right and ethical by this great breed no one will ever take the American Bully seriously as a breed.

    Feel free to add what you feels makes a A responsible and respectable breeder/owner

    Love the breed that you have...Don't call it something else becasue if you feel like to have to call it something else, you should not be breeding.

    Breed to a standard that makes for a healthy and well-structured dog...breed with the goal of improving/preserving the breed.

    Remember that breeeding is a LONG TERM PROJECT...not a get rich quick scheme

    Health test your breeding stock and do not make excuses for the dogs you are trying to breed. If your dog is deformed there is no reason to justify breeding it to a clean dog because you like his or her head. Basically if it doesn't pass a health screen and it is deformed spay or neuter end of story.
