Breed Standards for Dogs

American Bully

The American Bully is a direct descendant of the American Pit Bull Terrier, (APBT). The American Bully was created in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s as an intentional development with great attention being given to the increase in the size and mass of the breed without trying to lose any of it’s drive and physical stamina or vibrancy. While APBT has managed to maintain a unique uniform appearance and temperament for nearly 100 years, the American Bully was created to take those appearances to another level.

Short Bully

The Shorty Bull is a direct descendant of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, (Staffy), French Bull Dog and English Bulldog. The Staffy was chosen over the American Pit Bull Terrier was chosen for its temperament, drive and durability. The motivation to create the breed was when the Founder (Jamie Sweet) was involved in weight pulling in dog shows. Jamie had seen the excellent weight bull traits in the smaller while they were more easily handled and she had decided she wanted more of those traits.


The Boxer is a breed of medium-sized, short-haired dogs developed in Germany. Their coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colors are fawn or brindled, with or without white markings, which may cover the entire body, and white. Boxers are brachycephalic (they have broad, short skulls), have a square muzzle, mandibular prognathism (an underbite), very strong jaws, and a powerful bite ideal for hanging on to large prey. The Boxer was bred from the Old English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser, and is part of the Molosser group. The Boxer is a member of the Working Group.

Boxers were first exhibited in a dog show for St. Bernards in Munich in 1895, the first Boxer club being founded the next year. Based on 2013 American Kennel Club statistics, Boxers held steady as the seventh most popular breed of dog in the United States for the fourth consecutive year.

German Shepard

German Shepherds are working dogs developed originally for herding sheep. Since that time, however, because of their strength, intelligence, trainability and obedience, German Shepherds around the world are often the preferred breed for many types of work, including assistance, search-and-rescue, police and military roles, and even film roles. Some would argue that the German Shepherd is the second-most popular breed of dog in the United States and fourth-most popular in the United Kingdom.
