What is an exotic bully?

What is an Exotic bully???


Who the fuck knows?!!!???  Seriously though the exotic bully is a cool looking dog that has no standard at all. I am not one to bash another man/woman’s program but if you are breeding for profit at the dogs expense please look at your morals or the person that is selling you a dog morals. If the dog cannot walk or even stand properly please do not breed that dog, we all want a dog that can at least jog.

I’ve been to many shows and many different breed events and our breed of the bullies is definitely the most fucked up. I don’t care what show you go to you will see more than one bully that has definite health problem and will not live a full life. To keep them safe you can use this top rated bike locks new in your yard.


The Exotic bully started in about 2008, as a fad and now it has taken off almost to its own breed. It resembles a bulldog/shortybull /American bully mixture but no one really knows and if they do I’m sure they won’t tell you. These dogs tend to be deformed in most cases, it is called dwarfism. Here is some info from pet md

Symptoms and Types


  • Larger than normal head
  • Undershot jaw with shorter nose
  • Crooked teeth due to shorter jaw
  • Abnormal bone shape
  • Poor growth or lack of growth
  • Bones appear shorter than normal
  • Enlarged joints
  • Sideways bowing of forelimbs – front legs are more likely affected
  • Spinal deviation to either side of the body




Osteochondrodysplasia is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder, meaning that it can be passed along by either gender and only one parent need carry the gene for an offspring to be potentially affected.

Here is the link for the rest of the information.



Im not saying all exotics are dwarfs but most of the ones ive seen in person are or have some serious traits.

If you are interested in exotic bullies do a little homework on this designer breed of pitbull {lol} , Ask some questions. The number one questions I would ask an exotic bully breeder is..

#1 what is an exotic bully? Is it a mix breed? Is it a type of American bully? Is it a dwarf? Ive asked many exotic breeders what is a exotic bully and they just ignore the question, they tell me it a bully ass dog.

I’m not here to start a problem or knock another man’s hustle I’m just tired of seeing people get burned by overnight breeders.

#2 Do you give a health guarantee? I promise you that you will pay a lot of money for your exotic bull and I’m sure you want it to live a while so ask them if they stand by the health of their dog.

I’m not here to start a problem or knock another man’s hustle I’m just tired of seeing people get burned by overnight breeders and have our dogs suffer in the mean time.  I’ve gotten a lot of questions about this style of dog and I figure I would address it .

If anyone has a question problem please give me a call email or text




Here at Steelhead we do breed a few different varieties of bullies/ pits but they all are healthy and come with a health guarantees.

We are not a fad breeder we have had the same style dogs for 12 years and will for the next 12.

UKC American bullies




The UKC American Bully.


Bully style pit


The UKC American Bully.


Yes ladies and gentlemen the ukc has recognized the american Bully . It is true and it is a big step in the right direction for the breed.

The main reason they have done this was to preserve the standard of the ukc American pitbull terrier. As the bully style pitbull becomes more popular and more varieties  of the breed arise the further it moved away from the APBT’s standard. So the UKC had no choice to do it ,which i respect.

I also respect the fact the gave the American bully another option. Some breeders feel this was a move just for money which is a total false statement.The UKC is far from in need of money for our breed. I spoke to the president of the UKC personally and he explained the resons foe this. Which basically was giving the bully style pitbull another option instead of them just pulling the papers. A lot of bullies had their papers pulled do to the fact of the dogs were gtting so over done and extreme looking.

here is the breed transfer from link


Here is the link for single registration.



We will be moving some of our new dogs over to the UKC american bully to support the movement. This is big news and this can take this style of dog to new levels.

 UKC American Bully Standard

The goals and purposes of this breed standard include: to furnish guidelines for breeders who wish to maintain the quality of their breed and to improve it; to advance this breed to a state of similarity throughout the world; and to act as a guide for judges.

Breeders and judges have the responsibility to avoid any conditions or exaggerations that are detrimental to the health, welfare, essence and soundness of this breed, and must take the responsibility to see that these are not perpetuated.

Any departure from the following should be considered a fault, and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog and on the dog’s ability to perform its traditional work.

Quality is never to be sacrificed in favor of size and mass. UKC is unwilling to condone the validity of using exaggerated specimens of this breed in a breeding program and, to preserve its health and vibrancy, cautions judges about awarding wins to these representatives.


The American Bully breed developed as a natural extension of the American Pit Bull Terrier. The APBT has maintained a characteristic appearance and temperament for over 100 years. As with any long-standing breed, several types evolved from the parent breed, with one in particular taking on a specific build and structure that is so unique it was wise to recognize it as a different breed altogether. That being the American Bully breed.

The American Bully breed was subtly influenced by the infusion of several other breeds, which include the American Bulldog, English Bulldog, and Olde English Bulldogge.

The American Bully breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club on July 15, 2013.


The American Bully breed is recognizable by its characteristic compact, strong, thick-set structure and build. Their appearance reflects a strong American Pit Bull Terrier foundation, blended with stock from other bull breeds.

The overall balance and correct proportions of an athlete are essential, and absolute soundness and proper muscle tone is a must.

Head properties are in proportion to the body, reasonable, and free of exaggeration so as to not compromise breathing and/or obstruct normal vision.

It is a smooth coated dog that possesses great strength for its size. Although quite muscular, it is active and agile. Its presence is a picture of tremendous power and stamina that belies its kind and loyal temperament.

Eliminating Faults: Any disproportionate, overdone characteristic that would interfere with physical activity or working ability.

Disqualifications: Unilateral or bilateral cryptorchid.


The American Bully breed is, first and foremost, a companion, exhibiting confidence with a zest and exuberance for life. Despite its powerful appearance, their demeanor is gentle and friendly. This breed makes an excellent family dog. The ideal American Bully possesses the athleticism to do well in performance events.

Aggressive behavior towards humans is uncharacteristic of the breed, and highly undesirable. 

Disqualifications: Viciousness or extreme shyness.


The American Bully breed head is unique and a key characteristic. It is large and broad, but never disproportionate to the overall dog. There is a well-defined, moderately deep stop. The flews are deep, but always clean. Cheek muscles are prominent and free of wrinkles.

MUZZLE – The muzzle is broad and blocky, or slightly square. The length of the muzzle is shorter than the length of the skull, being from 25 to 35 percent of the overall length of the head. The top of the muzzle is straight. The lower jaw is well-developed, wide and deep.

The overall structure of the lower jaw, muzzle, stop and skull planes should bear little to no characteristics of the English Bulldog.

NOSE – The nose is large, with well-opened nostrils. All colors of nose pigment are acceptable. Nose color is usually in harmony with coat color.

Eliminating Faults: Excessively large, heavy, head disproportionate to the body. Muzzle so short and blunt as to interfere with normal breathing. Snipey muzzle. Weak lower jaw. Excessive flews. Muzzle slightly turned up at the nostrils.


The American Bully has a complete set of evenly spaced, white teeth meeting in a scissors or even bite. 

Serious Faults: Missing teeth. Overshot.

Eliminating Fault: Undershot. Wry bite.


Eyes are medium size, oval to slightly round, and set well apart and low on the skull. All colors are equally acceptable except blue. The haw should not be visible.

Fault: Blue eyes.

Serious Faults: Eyes not matched in color.


Ears are set high, and may be natural or cropped, without preference. Prick, or flat, wide ears are not preferred.

Disqualifications: Unilateral or bilateral deafness. Bat ears.


The neck is of moderate length and muscular. There is a slight arch at the crest. The neck widens gradually from where it joins the skull to where it blends in to well laid-back shoulders. The skin on the neck is without excessive dewlap.

Faults: Neck too thin or weak; ewe neck; excessive dewlap.

Very Serious Faults: A short neck that would interfere with functional ability. Neck too long as to be out of proportion with body.


The body is close-coupled, with a broad, deep chest, and well-sprung ribs. The chest may be wider than it is deep, but free from exaggeration. The forechest does not extend forward much beyond the point of the shoulder. The back is wide, strong and firm. The topline is level and straight. The croup slopes slightly downward to the base of the tail. The loin is wide and short. 

The distance from the withers to the elbow is equal to the distance from the elbows to the bottom of the feet. Dogs that are slightly shorter in distance from the elbows to the bottom of the feet are acceptable but not desirable. 

Eliminating Fault: Chest so wide as to interfere with normal movement.


The shoulder blades are long, wide, muscular and well laid back. The upper arm is roughly equal in length to the shoulder blade, and joins at an apparent right angle.

The forelegs are strong and muscular with a slight turn to the forearm. The elbows are set close or just slightly away from the body. Viewed from the front, the forelegs are set moderately wide apart, and are perpendicular to the ground. The pasterns are short, powerful, flexible, and set at a slight angle. 

Eliminating Faults: Front legs so bowed as to interfere with normal movement. 


The hindquarters are strong, muscular and broad. The rump is well-filled-in, and deep. 

The thighs are well developed, with thick muscles. Viewed from the side, the hock joint is well bent, and rear pasterns are well let down and perpendicular to the ground. Viewed from the rear, the rear pasterns are straight and parallel to one another.

Serious Faults: Narrow hindquarters. Lack of muscle. Straight stifle. Cow hocks. Sickle hocks. Bowed legs.


The feet are tight, round, proportionate to the size of the dog and well-arched. 

Removal of rear dewclaws is preferred, but not mandatory.

Eliminating Fault: Splayed feet.


The characteristic tail is often referred to as a crank or pump handle tail. Straight tails are also acceptable. The tail is set on as a natural extension of the topline, and tapers to a point. When the dog is moving, the tail is carried level with the topline. When the dog is excited, the tail may be carried slightly higher, but never carried over the back. When the dog is standing and relaxed, the tail is carried low and extends approximately to the hock.

Eliminating Fault: Bobbed tail.

Disqualification: Screw tail.


The coat is glossy and smooth, close, and moderately stiff to the touch.

Faults: Curly, wavy, or sparse coat.

Disqualification: Long coat.


Any color, color pattern, or combination of colors is acceptable, except for merle.

Disqualifications: Albinism. Merle.


The American Bully breed moves with a jaunty, confident attitude, conveying the impression that he expects any minute to see something new and exciting. When trotting, the gait is effortless, powerful, and well-coordinated, showing good reach in front and drive behind. When moving, the backline remains level with only a slight flexing to indicate suppleness. Viewed from any position, legs turn neither in nor out, nor do feet cross or interfere with each other. As speed increases, feet tend to converge toward center line of balance.

Faults: Legs over reaching; legs crossing over in front or rear; rear legs moving too close or touching; pacing; paddling; sidewinding; hackney action; pounding.


The ideal height range for mature males is from 17 to 20 inches at the withers; for mature females it is from 16 to 19 inches at the withers.

It is important to note that dogs slightly over or under these height ranges are not to be penalized unless they are disproportionately massive or rangy. 

Overall balance and the correct proportion of weight to height is far more important than the dog’s actual weight and/or height.

Eliminating Faults: Excessively tall, excessively short or overly massive dogs, and dogs with a height so far from what is desired as to compromise health, structure, movement and physical ability.

Disqualification: Dwarfism.


(An Eliminating Fault is a Fault serious enough that it eliminates the dog from obtaining any awards in a conformation event.)

Any disproportionate, overdone characteristic that would interfere with physical activity or working ability.

Excessively large, heavy, head disproportionate to the body. 

Muzzle so short and blunt as to interfere with normal breathing. 

Snipey muzzle. 

Weak lower jaw. 

Excessive flews. 

Muzzle slightly turned up at the nostrils.

Undershot bite.

Wry bite.

Front legs so bowed as to interfere with normal movement.

Chest so wide as to interfere with normal movement.

Splayed feet.

Bobbed tail.

Excessively tall, excessively short or overly massive dogs, and dogs with a height so far from what is desired as to compromise health, structure, movement and physical ability.


(A dog with a Disqualification must not be considered for placement in a conformation event, and must be reported to UKC.)

Unilateral or bilateral cryptorchid.

Viciousness or extreme shyness.

Bat ears.




Long coat.

Screw tail.

Unilateral or bilateral deafness.

Note: Although some level of dog aggression is characteristic of this breed, handlers will be expected to comply with UKC policy regarding dog temperament at UKC events.

The docking of tails and cropping of ears in America is legal and remains a personal choice. However, as an international registry, the United Kennel Club, Inc. is aware that the practices of cropping and docking have been forbidden in some countries. In light of these developments, the United Kennel Club, Inc. feels that no dog in any UKC event, including conformation, shall be penalized for a full tail or natural ears.

Blue Nose Pitbulls




Today Im going to give you some information about Blue Nose Pit bulls.

There is no such thing ,there are Blue pitbulls.. Not Blue Nose Pitbulls. Yes These dogs do have Blue Noses But the correct term is the Blue Pitbull. Blue is the what the color of the color of the dog is. When you register a dog with any registration you have to state what color the dog is whether its black, red, or brindle ect..

A Blue pitbull puppy

Blue nose pitbull puppy

If we use the term Blue Nose on this site it is only used for a keyword term so you can find us.

The Blue pitbull is the same as every other pitbull just a different color.  There are many styles of the American Pitbull terrier and many color variations.   Some people think that the Blue pitbull is better than any other pitbull but that is not true. We think the color is very pretty and unique but under the blue skin there sill the same dog.

United Kennel club Denying papers.












United Kennel club Denying papers



ukc papper denied



Well Here is a picture of proof that some dogs are getting there papers denied. We will be changing are main registration to ABKC & IBKC. The United Kennel club has changed its standard to a Slimmer dog with less substance and muscle. Here at Steelhead Pits we build our dogs with MUSCLE and a bulkier dog than the UKC standard. If your Dog is already registered you have nothing to worry about but if you are registering a new dog of the Bully standard you may have problems.

All of are dogs have passed the UkC test already but we dont want anyone to have any problems registering their dog.

In my opinion this problem is more based on the real extreme Bullies that really resemble Bulldogs more than Pitbulls.

Dogs like this dont really even resemble a pitbull in any type of way so you can understand why the United kennel club would deny the registration of  dog of this style.


bulldog style bully




We are not bashing anyone but we stick to our vision of dogs not the fad that is popular at the time. You will not see dog like this in any member of Steelheads Yard.

Our vision is more like the origanal bully pitbull dogs . Good clean muscle with excellent movement.

We have never had a problem with UKC but they had to put a foot down some time. You can obviously see the problem . But we wont get caught in the middle of this battle. I will give links and information to the new registrations . I will also post links to any show in the near future.

So for now this is the information we have available  and dont worry because if you have a dog from us you will be fine.
