The Bully Breeds

Belonging to the "bulldog" and "Bull & Terrier" groups of pure-bred dogs. They are often mis-identified, mis-labbeled, or delibrately called "pit bulls". Many owners of such dogs face prejudice and may be the target of physical and even verbal attacks and campaigns on social media.

Breed Specific Legislation is a way for governments and local authorities to generalize and demonize entire breeds despite the fact that a small percentage of the bully breeds are a danger to society. Often any dangerous behaviour can be traced back to deliberate formation and training by owners.

Below is an example of some of the "bully breeds" and it shows the physical differences in the branches of the genetic tree. Some breeds have been ommitted as they are extremely rare or do not face the same stigma of being labelled as a dangerous dog or mislabbeled as a pitbull.

A Deeper Understanding of Mixed Bully Breeds

We all know and love the fact that bulldogs are a stocky breed, with a compact body that has a very low center of gravity and short, sturdy and strong limbs.

The unique and unmistakable shape of the “breed” results in a peculiarly unique and well-known gait that is sometimes imitated when referring to weight lifters because they swagger like cocky tough guys! But that tough looking exterior as we all know is covering a real heart of gold!

Bulldogs and are known for their short muzzles with somewhat saggy skin on their faces, creating what looks like a “frown” which has become almost the trademarked look of the breed.

Bully mixes will often show slightly softer characteristics of the bulldog especially when mixed with larger and thinner breeds in which case we often see the skull and eyes revealing the biggest clues that the puppy is actually a mix.

The traditional bulldogs come in a variety of colors and ideally will have a short and smooth lustrous coat.

Beyond the bully mixes, which can come in a more varied size and shape the weight of what we consider the traditional bulldog is between 40 and 55 pounds (18 to 25 kilograms) when fully mature.

While it’s true that what some dog owners call “pit bulls” (i.e. American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers) can trace their genetic lineage back to the original breed of bulldog. Bulldogs were historically crossed with terriers to create what is known as the “pit bull” breeds (“pit bull” is not actually it’s own certified breed; rather,

it is a inclusive term which is used to collectively describe the American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers). After decades of selective breeding, however, all of the dogs that originated with bulldogs, all the “pit bulls” included, now have a unique set of traits and characteristics that are standard to that breed.

Pit Bulls (capitalized, that term actually refers to the American Pit Bull Terrier) are a recognized breed, with their own special traits and characteristics. So are American Bulldogs. Therefore, the most accurate description of many of these wonderful dogs would be American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog mix.

Be cautious if people are just referring to such dogs as a “pit bull”; it really isn’t accurate. Dog owners sometimes refer to such dogs (a Staffordshire Bull Terrier/American Bulldog mix for example) just as a “bully breed” or “bully mix”.

It’s simple and more accurate. But if you really want to be an ambassador for the animal and to really educate people, you could always say the full and accurate breed name of your dog when asked, although smiling and saying that she’s a “bully mix” will likely be less complicated!
