History

The American Bully was created in the years 80 and 90 in the United States based on American Staffordshire Terrier and the American Pitbull Terrier, and then it was completed with other races of type Bulldog, as the American bulldog, the English Bulldog and the French Bulldog.

The idea of ​​creating this breed of dog was Dave Wilson and Carlos Barksdale, founders of the world famous line Razor’s Edge Pit Bull. By owning some American Pit Bull Terriers, they invested in some great lines and bought some of the best dogs of the day, mainly from the line Mayfield, but also some dogs Hemphil very good.

Later they contacted George Williams, a Washington breeder, D.C. They bought him the dog Diablo, and this purchase marked the beginning of the line Razor’s Edge. Diablo he was a fairly large and muscular dog, who had the size and complexion they were looking to add to their breeding program.

In fact, the intention of Dave Wilson was to create a breed of short, stocky dogs. His line was to have thicker legs and a larger head than others Pit Bulls. I also wanted more square and shorter muzzles. Like this, the line Razor’s Edge was similar to Pit Bull traditional, although he was less athletic and did not have the same drive.

When in 1997 the Pit Bull in your home county (Prince George’s, Maryland), Dave Wilson he was forced to leave the area and moved his breeding activity to Virginia. To perfect your line, spent a lot of time with other breeders to learn more about breeding and genetics. His vision of the dog he wanted was very clear: I had to have a different head.

In 2012, the kennel of Dave Wilson, Razor’s Edge Kennel, had already created 7 generations of Pit Bulls pure breed. Unfortunately, although he did not want his dogs to be labeled as Pit Bull, could not get a pedigree for some of them and had to register them in the United Kennel Club (UKC) -the second largest dog club in the US, After the American Kennel Club (AKC)– as Pit Bull.

Dave started experimenting with many different lines of dogs, until he finally found the head he wanted. As the litters advanced, the line Razor’s Edge started to be really consistent. The heads of the dogs were quite large, but I also wanted the bones to be thicker.

Like this, mixing combinations of dogs and bloodlines, Dave finally got the style of Pitbull what did he want, call “Bully Style“. The dogs were small, with big heads, wide breasts, short snouts, big bones and short backs, but still within the standard of United Kennel Club (UKC) and of the American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC).

Since the 15 in July of 2013, the race American Bully is officially recognized by the United Kennel Club.
