Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

American Bully is a dog that was created in the late 1900's. They are often mistaken as Pit Bulls, and though the "breed" is descended from pit bulls, they do not conform to the American Pit Bull's breed type. There is a new breed kennel club, called the American Bully Kennel Club. [1]

These dogs have been created by mating American pit bull terriers (UKC) with American Staffordshire Terriers (AKC).
