To me a "bully" breed is just that, any breed of dog that has bulldog or mastiff of some sort, when I started my club a few years ago I called a Bully Breed Group, the shirts I had made up had a pic of a Mastiff, a Dobe, A Rott, an APBT, An American Bully, a English Bulldog, and I beleive a Bull Terrier, all of these dogs are bully breeds to me, it could also include the Fila, the Preso Canario, the Dogo, and a few more I can't think of right now, lol. But this is JMO, please remember that :D lol

Is there even a real answer? lol or does it vary from person to person?
No it would be opinion. There is no set standard to what constitutes a bully bred. I consider it dogs that stem from our old Bulldogs.APBT, Amstaff, American Bulldogs, OE Bulldogs, Olde Bulldogs, Alpha Blue Blooded, most ect. I include boxers, but not Rotts or Dobies. Like I said tho its all opinion.

Yep Holly hit the nail on the head those are the breeds I think of when someone say bully breeds. I do not ever think of Dobes or Rotties they are not bully to me they fall into the guard dog breeds which would include the German Shepherd too. JMO

this is cut and paste from the Bully Breed magazine,part of an article in it.

Standards of Strength
If you are having trouble keeping all the bully breeds straight, you aren't alone. Several breeds of dogs are commonly referred to as pit-bull types or bully breeds. Primarily, these are the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT, also called a Pit Bull), the American Staffordshire Terrier (AmStaff), the Bull Terrier (BT), the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Miniature Bull Terrier and the American Bulldog. All six share common ancestors and some history. The interwoven breeds share names and characteristics so closely related that the uninitiated can be forgiven if they are a little confused.

For instance, neither the APBT nor the American Bulldog are recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). The AKC does recognize dogs that are virtually identical to the APBT under the name of the American Staffordshire Terrier, which it changed from Staffordshire Terrier in 1972, to distinguish it from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England. This, of course, is not to be confused with the AKC-accepted Bull Terrier, which has a smaller spin-off, the Miniature Bull Terrier. American Pit Bull Terriers are recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC), and AKC American Staffordshires can be double registered as UKC APBTs. But American Pit Bulls cannot be registered as AmStaffs. And finally, the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA), established in 1910, registers only American Pit Bull Terriers under its own standard. ADBA dogs are sometimes dual-registered with the UKC but almost never with the AKC. Whew!

Why all the confusion? The answer is partly practical, partly political, because the development and recognition of pit-bull types have been inextricably bound to changing social norms and volatile public opinion since their inception.
end of article.

I don't fit the mastiff into the bulldog category,or for that matter the boxer,presa,cane corso etc.
bully,or bully type in my world is very narrow.
what they represent to me cannot be touched by these other dogs.many of which were/are agressor type dogs.with HA attributes or A pre-requisite or propensity to be sentry or security types.
bulldogs were and should always be distinctly left off that list.they are n ot geared for it,and for the most part by psyche,ill wquipped.
when you ask then to step into the agressive arena you are asking them to add a mental dimension that is all but unfamiliar to the breed type.

William, I see your point here, and I have to agree.

not a fan of dobes,had plenty of friends or acquaintances with them,and I never felt anything but edginess or discomfort around them.
oh yeah,I'm not or have I ever been the worry or feared type for anything.to admit this speaks volumes.

Dobies & Rotties I'm a fan of. My dad has a rottie - Bo, he has the goofiest personality. One of my neighbors from years ago had a dobie, sweetest & calmest dog ever. I think they have a great demeanor but they were also Germany's war dogs too from years ago...

My chi is Tri colored I don't see how a rottie or a dobie could have been crossed with a 6 pound dog :)
