American Bully Association SERVING ALL Bully Breeds

The American Bully Association ( ABA ) is an exclusive all bully and short haired molosser and mastiff breed registry focusing on the registration, genealogy tracking, education and responsible ownership of ALL bully, molosser and mastiff breeds around the world. Below is a list of breeds served along with a link to their breed standard and registration options. If a breed is not shown please let us know.

Serving All Bully Breeds Around The World

At the American Bully Association we have taken great effort in providing our members and the community with information and services unmatched by any registry in the world.


The American Bully in our name is a testament to ALL bully breeds around the world not just the breed that also goes by the name American Bully. We however do have an affinity for the American Bully as a newly developing breed and support the community with its registration and support services as well.


The bully breeds of America, Europe, the Middle and Far East have have had great influence both nationally and internationally on bully breeds of today. This can be seen in many of the breed standards we have included in the breed list provided.


At American Bully Association we recognize all short hair breeds that share any of the known molosser/mastiff lineage known to make up bully and associated breeds we know today.

Transparent, Honest and Fair

At the American Bully Association you will find that our goal is to be as transparent as possible in both defined and developing breeds. What you will not see that is commonplace with other registries is an ever-changing standard on defined breeds. We believe once a standard is solidified then it should remain true. We believe if a final defined standard cannot be trusted to be true from the beginning and is subject to change based on whim, bias or politics this shows that such registries also cannot be trusted to fairly represent their members or the breeds they profess to serve.


At the ABA we do not believe bias or politics should run the day or ruin a breed. We believe first and foremost the purpose of a registry was from the beginning and should be to the end to keep proper genealogical records. This helps establish a history on a breed, helps insure correct standards are met and allows for the proper development of pedigrees.

Serving Our Members

At the ABA we believe the secondary purpose of a registry is to serve its members. Because of this we are always looking for ways to improve the level of service we provide. We believe the self-serving nature of registries of the late 1900's is in the past and we embrace a future where we work with and for our members and the dog breeds we represent.


At the American Bully Association we recognize it is the membership that makes up and determines the success of a registry and it is the job of a registry to support and assist its members in finding success with their dog breed of choice, its accurate and progressive genealogical tracking and helping breeders grow in their development, breeding and marketing programs.

In addition to our advanced genealogy tracking services the American Bully Association ( ABA ) offers the largest printed pedigree of any registry in the world for Bully, molosser/mastiff breeds. The ABA Platinum Pedigree ranges from 8-11 generations. At 11 Generations this is up to 2,047 relationships all available on one single printed pedigree.


Not everyone qualifies for a Platinum Pedigree. In order to qualify at least 2/3 of the oldest generation must be available. Because only a few will meet this high standard qualifying for it means you will have one of the best tracked dogs in the world and thus be able to command the greatest prices for your stock at time of sale.


One of the primary factors that determine value in a breed is the level of pedigree it has. When members reach the Platinum Pedigree level this means their stock will be more prized by the general public and will garner them greater value when it comes to selling their offspring or studding their males. Getting the best prices for your offspring and studdings will also give you piece of mind that your offspring will be going to the highest quality homes and as such you can be more confident they will also be treated well.


If you are registering a purebred dog your submission is your testament to the breed you are indicating. If you are unsure of the breed your dog other than it is bully class it is your obligation to let us know. If unknown but clearly bully class it will be registered in the American Bully developing breed class.


If you are registering an American Bully please include if known the breed of the father and breed of the mother if available/known as well as that of any known earlier generations. If unknown please indicate unknown. This is not used as a disqualifier to registration but is an attempt to understand the long-term breed ratios that make up the American Bully as it continues to develop as a breed.
