Top 10 Types of Bully Dog Breeds

In this article, we are going to take a look at the top 10 different sorts of bully dog breeds that you should think about adding to your household. But before we get into that, let's first define what what we mean by "bully breeds."

The early history of the American pit bull terrier was clouded by the prevalence of blood sports like dogfighting and bull-baiting in the 1800s. Despite their current unfavorable reputation, many people continue to adore them as pets.

1. American Pit Bull Terrier

The Staffordshire bull terrier, sometimes known as a "staffy," is one of the oldest dog breeds here. The bulldog may be the ancestor of the staffie, which was developed specifically for use in blood sports. Staffies can grow to a maximum of 16 inches in height.

2. Staffordshire Bull Terriers

Both the American pit bull terrier and the American Staffordshire bull terrier can be traced back to the original American terrier. They look and are sized very differently, though. 

3. American Staffordshire Bull Terriers

The American bulldog is popular even though it was originally developed as a hardy farm dog. Despite being a much bigger breed, it has the pit bull's sturdy build and gigantic, blocky head.

4. American Bulldogs

The English bulldog, the original bulldog, was a fan favorite. Waddling like a crab, the English bulldog is a huge, fearless dog. These dogs are tough and full of life.

5. English Bulldogs

These terriers have a long nose and an egg-shaped head that sets them apart from other large-boned breeds. They come in a wide range of colors, although white is the most common. 

6. Bull Terriers

The Cane Corso, which may weigh up to 100 pounds and occasionally more, serves as the conventional canine first line of defense and defender. While they may appear graceful when walking, these bully breed dogs are anything but.

7. Cane Corsos

The French bulldog is essentially a miniature version of the bulldog, save for the latter's characteristic bat ears, which are set vertically on its head. Both types share the same deep creases on their faces and sturdy builds.

8. French Bulldogs

A Rottweiler is a very strong canine. These canines originated in Germany and were once employed in herding. They have evolved into excellent protection, police, and search-and-rescue dogs today. 

9. Rottweilers

Although the Mastiff is larger, the Bullmastiff is no slouch when it comes to power and loyalty. With a potential weight of over 130 pounds, these huge dogs are hardly lightweights.
