The American Bully is a relatively new breed developed in the 1990s in the United States. It is a cross between the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and other breeds like the Bulldog, Mastiff, and American Bulldog.
In contrast, the American Bulldog has a more extended history and was first bred in the United States in the 18th century. It comes from English Bulldogs used for bull-baiting but were later selectively bred for farm work.
The American Bully is a broad, stocky dog with a muscular physique and a shorter stature. On the other hand, the American Bulldog is a large, imposing dog that is typically larger and taller than the bully breed.
The American Bully’s coat is short, glossy, and smooth to the touch and comes in various shades of colors and patterns. The American Bulldog also has a short coat denser than the Bully, with color variations that range from white to brindle and fawn that can have black markings.
The American Bully has a broader head, shorter muzzle, sharper cheekbones, and small, downturned eyes. The American Bulldog has a wider skull, an undershot jaw, and a more pronounced stop, giving it a distinct look that sets it apart from most dog breeds.
