American Bullies are a relatively new breed, originating in the 1980s.  They are mixed breed Bulldogs, often being bred with Mastiffs and other larger breeds to make them bigger – commonly known as the XL Bully.

Often seen as a ‘status symbol’, they are growing in popularity and are renowned for their intimidating looks and sheer strength.  Males can weigh anywhere between 70 and 130 pounds.

Experts are now at pains to warn of their potentially dangerous nature, especially if they are not correctly trained or their aggression is encouraged, posing a real threat to humans and in particular, children.

The Home Secretary has now spoken out over recent, horrific attacks branding the American XL Bully as a clear and lethal danger to communities, particularly to children and has commissioned urgent advice on banning this breed of dog.

We believe it is time for the Dangerous Dogs Act to be overhauled, with tougher penalties to be considered for irresponsible dog owners/keepers.

Recent research has shown that American Bully-type dogs have been responsible for 44 per cent of all reported attacks by dogs since the start of the year, with the XL Bully involved in 22 per cent of all attacks.

Last year there were 22,000 dog attacks causing injuries in England and Wales, a rise of 4,000 since 2018.
