Generally, the American bully’s stocky and solid build is one of the breed’s most distinguishing traits. His characteristics mirror that of the American pit bull terrier mixed with the features from other bulldog breeds. There are five types of American bullies:
Standard American bully has a compact, muscled body with a thickset head. A male can grow up to 17–20 inches. Meanwhile, a female can measure 16–19 inches at the withers. With proper care, he can live up to ten to twelve years.
This type has a similar height with the standard American bully. The difference between the two is noticeable through their build. Classic American bully has a narrow body and is less muscular compared to the other types.
Pocket American bully has the same build and body type as the standard, but they differ when it comes to height. Male pocket American bully measures under seventeen inches and the female less than fourteen inches at the withers.
Extra-large American bully mirrors the physique of the standard type, but he is bulkier, taller, and more muscular than the other. The male grows up to 20–23 inches, whilst the female ranges between 19 and 22 inches.
Extreme American bully is also known as exotic bully. He has a bulkier body frame and more body mass than the standard bully. The male measures 17–20 inches. On the other hand, the female measures between 16 and 19 inches.
Grooming an American bully is simple and easy to manage. Since his coat is short and smooth, he is a low shedder. Thus, there is not much trouble when brushing his coat. Make sure to do it two to three times a week. Bathing can be done at least once or twice a year or if he gets really dirty.
