The EXOTIC BULLY is a new breed still in development. Exotic’s are a cross of American Bully in the first place, Old English Bulldog, French Bulldog, English Bulldog, and Shorty Bull.The Exotic Bully began to take form in the late 2000’s . The dogs began to get smaller, more compact, more wrinkled and more bulldoggysh look, and that separate it from the American Bully. For me good definition of exotic bully is that's an over-exaggerated style of features on a smaller, more compact dog.
They got massive popularity over night and therefore, affectionately nicknamed “Exotics.”That fast popularity inspired dog enthusiasts and breeders to promote and breed them correctly .Properly breeding ,considerably this is a young breed, means that everyone can come to proper breed information, accurate and truthful pedigree database. So every breeder can make his own puzzle with known bloodlines.
General Appearance: The Exotic Bully will be shorter in height, stout for its size and has an abstruse yet distinguishing physique with a blocky head. Should display effortless movement and should be active and alert to its surroundings.
HEAD Medium in length, with a broad skull, very pronounced cheek muscles, distinct stop, and high set ears. Excess of wrinkles in skull is not desirable and considered a minor fault.
EARS- Natural drop, rose or cropped. Dropped ears are acceptable as long they are small, not “hound like”. Full pricked ears that stand up on top of the head should be considered a serious fault. Ears are usually a medium size.
EYES- Eye shape is oval to slightly roundish, and set far apart. Any color is acceptable except albinism. However, odd eyes (one dark, one blue or light) should be considered non preferred. Misshapen or bugged eyes are a serious fault. Lacking pigment around the eyes is undesirable. Crossed eyes or non symmetrically shaped eyes are a disqualifying fault.
MUZZLE- Short blocky upper side or squared to fall away abruptly below eyes and measuring roughly 1 to 2 inches away from head (Commonly known as the 1-2 finger muzzle) is most desirable.
JAWS- well definition. Under jaw- required to be strong. Lips- semi close and even preferred but slight looseness is allowed.Jaws are broad and square, while canines should be large.
