Why women Love Bully Breeds!

1. They Can’t Talk.

New research suggests silence is the ultimate sign of masculinity. On average women speak 3–5x more words per day then men. Your bully will let you get it all out.. plus he’s always interested. And he can’t talk back.

2. They’re Masculine

Unlike your nancy hipster boyfriend, at least these guys LOOK tough.

3. Chicks love “Bad Boys”

The American Bully & Pit Bull Terrier are the bad boys of the dog breeds. They have been judged, mistreated, banned and mislabeled as inherently dangerous.. but behind the tough looking exterior.. they’re big babies.

4. They’re Protectors

You can feel safe knowing your bully has got your back.

5. They’re Great With Children

Despite what the media would have you believe, the American Bully-an offshoot of the American Pit Bull Terrier were originally coined “nanny dogs” because of their gentle nature with kids.

6. They Don’t Judge You

Polishing off your 2nd pint of Ben & Jerry’s and binge watching your favorite TV series? No judgement here.. Your bully thinks this is a great decision, and only wants a lick or two when you’re finished. He also thinks you look slimmer than usual. Have you been dieting?

7. They’re the Best Snugglers on the Planet

These hams take nap time seriously. And they expect cuddles.

8. They’re Emotionally Supportive

Unlike your man, who has no clue if, why or when you’re upset.. your bully can sense it. They recommend a nap, snuggle and ice cream. 3 of their favorite things. You definitely deserve ice cream. Just give them a taste.

9. Easily trained.

Some large dogs tend to have silly temperaments or aren’t as intelligent as other breeds, but American bullies are relatively intelligent and willing to be trained by an owner they respect. They tend to be stable and confident, which means you don’t need to tone down the training, and they are very outgoing, so they are eager to please and can be trained to defend you and your family if necessary. You do need to be consistent when training and get buy-in from all family members – nobody can sneakily let the dog jump up on counters when they’re home alone or let it jump up or bark against the training, or the dog will be confused and behave in a more aggressive manner until it figures out the pack structure.

And No. 10…..

The back is a roach back with a slight fall close behind the shoulders; strong and short, broad at the shoulders and narrowing at the loins. The body is short and well rounded. The chest is broad, deep, and full; well ribbed with the belly tucked up. The tail is either straight or screwed (but not curly), short, hung low, thick root and fine tip; carried low in repose.
FOREQUARTERS
Forelegs are short, stout, straight, muscular and set wide apart. Dewclaws may be removed. Feet are moderate in size, compact and firmly set. Toes compact, well split up, with high knuckles and short stubby nails.
HINDQUARTERS
Hind legs are strong and muscular, longer than the forelegs, so as to elevate the loins above the shoulders. Hocks well let down. Feet are moderate in size, compact and firmly set. Toes compact, well split up, with high knuckles and short stubby nails; hind feet slightly longer than forefeet.
COAT
Coat is moderately fine, brilliant, short and smooth. Skin is soft and loose, especially at the head and shoulders, forming wrinkles.
COLOR
All colors acceptable.
GAIT
Correct gait is double tracking with reach and drive; the action is unrestrained, free and vigorous.
TEMPERAMENT
Well behaved, adaptable, and comfortable companions with an affectionate nature and even disposition; generally active, alert, and playful, but not unduly boisterous.
DISQUALIFICATIONS
Other than bat ears.

Where Does The Tri Color Come From?


This applies to the American Bully even though the American Bully stems off from the pit bull but has also been influenced by the infusion of several different types of bulldog breeds according to both the UKC & ABKC.
The tan point pattern is caused by a recessive gene on the Agouti series gene locus, the following are the alleles (variations) that are definitely known to occur in the American Pit Bull Terrier.

There are also a couple of other genes on this same locus, but they are most likely not present in this breed, so we will ignore them in this article to try and keep things simple.

Agouti locus alleles present in the APBT

A Dominant Black: produces a solid color (ie: black, chocolate or blue)

ay Dominant Yellow – Produces reds and buckskins

at Tan-Point (recessive)- produces solid color with tan ‘points’

Simple right…?

A dog needs to inherit two copies of the tan-point gene to be a tri colored. If a pup inherits one copy of the gene and one copy of the dominant yellow gene, which causes a red or buckskin coloration, then the dog will be red or buckskin, not tri colored.

If the dog inherits one copy of the tan-point gene and one of the dominant black, blue, or tan gene, the result will be a solid black blue, tan dog. because of the recessive nature of the tan-point gene, it can actually remain hidden in the gene pool for many generations without expressing itself.

In the case of our breed (where this is not a common color) this is what often happens, but it is important to realize that when the tan-point pattern does pop up it is not some new color mutation that appeared out of nowhere, but rather the manifestation of a gene that has been present in this breed all throughout the known history of the American Pit Bull Terrier.

Though it is impossible to say for sure where the coloration originated, our best guess would be that it came from some sort of terrier blood that was introduced many, many years ago, probably during the early formation of the breed in the British Isles. Actually, part of the reason the color is uncommon is that there has been a distinct prejudice against it by many people, either because they feel it is not a typical Pit Bull color, or even actually thought it was the result of a mixed breeding.

The latter reason shows an ignorance of basic genetic principles, because the gene is recessive, there is no way you could breed a Rottweiler or a Doberman or Manchester Terrier to a Pit Bull and get puppies with the tan-point markings unless the Pit Bull was carrying the tan-point gene too.
If in fact the black and tan color was not present in the APBT gene pool, you would have to breed to a dog of another tan-point breed, and then breed two offspring from such a breeding back together to get black & tan dogs, in the first generation you would get no tan-pointed offspring.

The tan point gene does not actually create a black & tan animal, the gene itself does not produce any color but rather a pattern of a solid color with light-colored ‘points‘. These ‘points’ always appear in specific places but the actual size and distribution of them is somewhat variable.

The exact coloration that is produced by the tan-point gene is dependent on the color genes present at other loci, for instance if the pigmentation is black, the result will be a black & tan, but if the dog’s pigmentation is chocolate or blue then the pattern would produce a chocolate & tan or a blue & tan, respectively.

You don’t have to understand the fancy words (I don’t understand or care what an allele is) but you now know the tri color gene is recessive, which means you need both parents to be carriers in order to produce tri color pitbulls.

Also don’t get fooled into the hype of the tri color gene being stronger because several generations were tri colors. Having it in several generations doesn’t mean anything when it’s a recessive gene.

It doesn’t matter if every single dog in the pedigree were tri color pit bulls or American Bullies, it is still a recessive gene which means other colors will dominate first. So it comes down to matching two parents that carry the gene not generations for it to produce tri color pit bulls.

Also, breed for temperament, health, functionality and structure. Not for color. Do this and you’ll be proud of what you produce. Hope this article was helpful.
