Since this is one of those dog breeds that is often misunderstood, I wanted to clear up a few things when it comes to the American Bully.
How much should an American Bully weigh?
While there is no standard weight for each size of American Bully, their weight should be in proportion to their height.
These dogs typically weigh between 66 and 88 pounds (30 and 40 kg).
How to Measure American Bully’s Height?
To accurately measure your American Bulldog’s height, make sure that he stands up straight from the ground.
You need to get the measurement from the floor up to the mark, which is the uppermost point of his shoulder blades.
Measuring the withers from the ground is standard for all dogs.
The American Bully comes in 4 recognized sizes
There are four different sizes of American bullies that are recognized by the ABKC:
Here’s a little more information on the four recognized sizes of American bullies:
A standard male American bully stands between 17 and 20 inches (43-51 cm) while a standard female stands between 16 and 19 inches (40-48 cm).
To be considered a pocket American bully, a male must be between 14 and 17 inches (35-43 cm) at the shoulder, and a female must be between 13 and 16 inches (33-40 cm) at the shoulder. Otherwise, this size has the same proportions and characteristics as the standard American bully.
XL (Extra Large) American bullies are bigger than the standard size but should have the same build and overall proportions. Males are between 20 and 23 inches (50-58 cm) and females range between 19 and 22 inches (48-56 cm). At this time, this is the largest accepted size for this breed.
Although the classic type of the American Bully is the same height as the standard, this type is recognized by a difference in build. These dogs are less muscular and have narrower frames than the standard, pocket, and XL varieties.
How long does it take for an American Bully to fully grow?
When should I start training my American Bully?
From the age of 12 weeks old to 6 months, your puppy should get three meals a day. This will allow the pup to have frequent, small meals so that they receive the amount of nutrition that they need but don’t gorge themselves. After the age of 6 months, feed them 2 meals a day.
Are American Bully high maintenance?
