BBCR Conformation Breed Information


The BBCR is an international registry and currently recognizes eleven (11) breeds. Each one of these bull breeds was developed for a specific purpose. These purposes have changed as the ways of the world have changed; from being a guardian of property to now just giving their owners endless hours of enjoyment as a companion. Whatever your interests, one of these bull breeds will add a spark to your existence.

American Bulldog

The American Bulldog is a breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris). Generally, two types are considered as an American Bulldog: the Bully or Classic type and the Standard or Performance type. They may also be called the Johnson type or the Scott type.


American Bully

The American Bully breed was established in the mid-1990’s with the purpose of creating the ultimate family companion. The American Bully was created through years of selective breeding by combining the desired traits of the American Pit Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier.


APBT (American Pit Bull Terrier)

An American Pit Bull Terrier is determined by its body structure and build. Both males and females will have lighter body frames and less overall body mass than an American Bully. More resembling the original looks of the American Staffordshire Terrier.


American Staffordshire Terrier

The American Staffordshire Terrier was first bred in the nineteenth century in Birmingham, West Midlands, rather than in the English county of Staffordshire where it was then later bred. The early ancestors of this breed came from England where, until the first part of the 19th century, the bulldog was bred. Bulldogs pictured as late as 1870 resemble contemporary American Staffordshire Terriers to a greater degree than present-day Bulldogs.


Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier is one of the most recognized breeds in the world because of its’ distinctive shape and body. These dogs are playful, comical and affectionate making it a family-friendly and a devoted animal.


Cane Corso

The overall conformation of the dog should be well-balanced and proportionate. The foregoing description is that of the ideal Cane Corso; any deviation from the above-described dog is penalized to the extent of the deviation.


English Bulldog

A bulldog is the common name for a breed of dog also referred to as the English Bulldog or British Bulldog. Other Bulldog breeds include the American Bulldog and the French Bulldog. The bulldog is a muscular, heavy dog with a wrinkled face and a distinctive pushed-in nose.


French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is a small companion breed of dog, related to the English Bulldog and American Bulldog. As the name suggests, France is the origin of the breed. These dogs are commonly called the “Frenchie” and are nicknamed “clowns” and “frog dogs”.


Neapolitan Mastiff

The Neapolitan Mastiff is an ancient breed, rediscovered in Italy in the 1940’s. The Neapolitan Mastiff was used as an estate guard dog.


Olde Bulldogge

The Olde Bulldogge is a purebred breed of dog. It is a re-creation of the bull-baiting dog that existed in England during the English Regency period of 1811-1820.



Great care was taken to ensure this breed was not a “mini” of any breed but a breed of its own with a unique appearance and temperament unrivaled by other small bull breeds. The vision was for a healthy, functional, stable temperament small dog all wrapped in classic bulldog looks. This did not come easily but with dedication to the ideas that were the building blocks of the breed the vision was realized.  Each breed used in the composite of the Shortybull was chosen for a specific trait… size, structure, temperament, health and ability.


Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Staffies still resemble the pugnacious brawlers who once ruled England’s fighting pits. But today’s responsible breeders are producing sweet-natured, family-oriented Staffies with a reputation for being a patient nanny dog for kids. These are true-blue loyal companions, but the old fighting instinct still lurks within—making it vital that Staffie pups be socialized with other dogs to learn good canine manners.
