Deeper Understanding of Mixed Bully Breeds
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
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.
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.
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
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
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!
