PITT BULL

AMERICAN BULLY KENNEL CLUB

The American Bully Kennel Club was created to pay honor to dogs like Blue Remy. Sadly over the years the Pit Bull has been abused by crooks that took advantage of the dog’s willingness to please and suffered immensely in the gladiatorial arenas of the backwoods. Finally after a century of public outcry, Pit fighting has become the pastime of a few die hard criminals and is quickly fading from the scene. Because of this past history, the AKC denied the Pit Bull into memberships of its club. The UKC formed in 1898, from its inception has registered Pit Bulls.


ABKC KENNEL CLUB IS BORN

Yet in recent years the need of the breed has changed as dog fighting waned and home owners across the country began to enjoy the breed for its unmatched loyalty. Seeing the need for change in the breed, prompted a number of breeders to rethink the direction the Pits were being bred. This new direction has caused a chasm to develop with supporters on each side, some wanting to retain the old and some seeing a need to move forward. It was not long until the need was seen for a new registry to be established to allow for this new breed dog to grow and fulfill its potential. For this reason the American Bully Kennel Club, also known as the ABKC was established and has since become one of the leading advocates for the American Bully as well as Traditional Pit Bulls. All Bull breeds are welcome to join the club.

THE AMERICAN BULLY

This is Blue Remy. He is registered with the United Kennel Club, although he is not allowed to compete there any longer because they say he is too wide. It wasn't long ago that the United Kennel Club changed their rules concerning Pit Bull Confirmation to deny this Purple Ribbon bred Pit. Prior to that, with the advent of the Bully movement among Pit Bull breeders, Pit like Blue Remy was dominating the winner’s podium. Recently a number of Pit Bull breeders endeavoring to breed the dog away from its fighting linage in order to preserve the Pit Bull from unfair legislation, started producing wider, thicker and some say better Pit Bulls. Blue Remy is a prime specimen of this new movement among breeders concerned with the annihilation of the breed. Since their objective was to breed the dog away from its fighting form, there was no longer any reason to limit the breed to its smaller, thinner frame, designed like a marathon runner, designed to do battle that could last an hour or more.


THE ABKC AND THE AMERICAN BULLY

With the breed no longer being dominated by the scum at whose hands the dogs were abused for nearly a century as pit fighters, this opened the door for reputable breeders to take the Pit Bull into a new direction. In no time at all, Pits like Blue Remy became the favorites of the crowd and Judges. The fighting style (some refer to them as game dogs) Pits didn’t stand a chance in the ring with this new version, with their bigger heads and wider chests. Instead of seeing an opportunity to assign these new dogs their own class or distinction, the United Kennel Club simply changed the rules to deny the new dogs a chance to compete. For this reason and others, a new registry was formed that opened the way for Pit Bull lovers of all varieties a fair chance to show his or her dogs. 2009 saw over 100 such shows sponsored by the ABKC. These shows are amongst the best attended and most competitive dog shows in the world, as the American Bully as they are now referred to continue to take the dog world by storm.
