I thought this was going to be a reasonable site to find reputable breeders but i was wrong.
At least its not as bad as NextDayPets. (horrible site if your looking for pits or amstaffs)
But it seems i cant go anywhere without seeing "bully breeders" now dont get me started on them they are the lowest of the low.
I saw an add for them in the Bull Terriers listing. I thought they only false advertised on pitbull and amstaffs.
There needs to be something done about these breeders

Not to defend any particular breeder, but "Bully" seems to be commonly used as a nickname for several breeds, including Bull Terriers, English Bulldogs, AmStaffs, etc. I know several very reputable show breeders who refer to their dogs as "Bullies" for short. Maybe this isn't the point you were making, but I certainly wouldn't assume anything negative just because someone uses the nickname "Bully" for their breed.

I breed American Bullies and they are wonderfull (and if bred right) athletic dogs. I have a few I am training for weight pull and a puppy that I jog with daily. The breed ussually has very good endurance like a pitbull with the sweet tempurment of some other bully bereedsBreeder of American Bullies and currently looking for a Belgian Malinois or Sloughi to show

The term "Bully" breeder is commonly used in reference to individuals who are NOT breeding to standard but rather to a grotesquely overdone version of the breed of choice. Bascially....not good breeders IMO.

Sorry....i think American "bullies" fall into that catagory.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO TO LOOK, YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS ULTIMATELY GETTING THE PUP/DOG. EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE BREED, GO TO THE PARENT CLUB FOR BREEDER REFERAL!! If the first person you call doesn't have what you want, ask if they know someone that does. Do NOT buy from someone that just breeds, that they don't show, don't rescue things like that. If they are throwing 2 pets together in the backyard, why would you want to buy from them? Call a PHA and get a reference for someone. Look at westminster show results, find the breeders that bred those dogs. Don't limit yourself to here and next day pets and for heavens sake don't go to Puppyfind!
Ask lots of questions, how many breeds they have, how many litters, if they are akc inspected, what their last inspection said (ask for a copy!), then do MORE homework on them. Don't expect someone to have the perfect dog, expect to wait awhile, most good breeders have waiting lists.
And, if all else fails, GO TO A DOG SHOW!

I know this is an old post, but I felt like commenting on it anyway.

It took a few years, but the American PitBull Terrier and the American Bully are slowly being regconized as two different breeds.

First, I think it is the bloodlines that make the so called breed standard. You have your 'gamebred' dog, then, you have your UKC, a little more stockier dog. Then you have your American Bullies, which are pitbull/english Bulldog looking.

I don't believe that all "bully" breeders are low. What kind of statement is that?
I think you have responsible breeders and non-responsible breeders, no matter what the breed is.

I do notice that there aren't any 'pitbull' breeders listed. Why? Just curious.

Anyway, In my opinion, most of these (no offense to the owner)advertising boards is to make money. After all, it's a business.
