Starting late 2019 and into 2020 BULLY KING Magazine will be Featuring many of the Top American Bully Breeders, Kennels and Bloodlines. We will cover a significant number of the top kennels, breeders, studs, best females and more in each significant classification of the breed (Pocket, Standard, Classic and XL) We will also cover a considerable amount of the smaller and unofficial classes (Micro, Exotic, Extreme)
For those new to the American Bully breed, who might go cross eyed trying to decipher what any of those terms mean… we will separate each class in a simple way that is easy to comprehend. The first American Bully Kennel we are highlighting is Venomline- A top Pocket Bully Kennel out of South Florida.
For individuals who might be new to the breed and still learning, we will lay out the various Classes in the American Bully breed as per the establishing registry The American Bully Kennel Club, otherwise called the ABKC, and we will include Breed Standards from the United Kennel Club, orUKC as well.
AMERICAN BULLY CLASSES: AMERICAN BULLY KENNEL CLUB (ABKC)
The American Bully breed became one of the quickest developing new breeds originally in 2014 and it has remained in the Top 5 every year since. In 2018, the American Bully was the fastest growing new breed and hasn't given any indications of slowing down since. The breed is on track to complete 2019 in similar fashion. So why are so many people, all over the world falling in love with the American Bully breed?
Even with it's explosive growth and expansion into new countries and territories, there is still much confusion about the breed, it's make up, personality and temperament accompanied by many misconceptions.
Inaccurate data online made worse by poorly educated media reports have facilitated further misconceptions in regards to the breed. There are some who still confuse the American Bully breed with it's cousin the American Pit Bull Terrier. But both are distinct and separate breeds each recognized by several respected registries as such.
The American Bully is a companion breed exhibiting confidence, a zest for life, sense of humor, and fun personalities accompanied with an exuberant will to please both their owners and families. This makes the American Bully an excellent family companion.
Despite the American Bully’s fierce and powerful appearance their demeanor is gentle and the breed is notorious for being great with kids. They are friendly with strangers, other dogs, and even other animals. Human or dog aggression, extreme shyness or viciousness is uncharacteristic of the American Bully and is highly undesirable.
BREED STANDARD (ORIGINAL)
It is important to note the ABKC got rid of the extreme class. So there are currently 4 Classes
ABKC AMERICAN CLASSES 2014-PRESENT
This is an amendment to the basic standard which a Pocket Bully is determined by its adult height.
Males under 17″ and no less than 14″ at the withers. Females under 16″ and no less than 13″ at the withers.
The American Bully should give the impression of great strength for it’s size. It is a compact and medium/large size dog with a muscular body and blocky head. The American Bully should have the appearance of heavy bone structure with a bulky build and look.
Males 17 inches — 20 inches (43 cm — 51 cm) at the withers. Females 16 inches — 19 inches (40 cm — 48 cm) at the withers.
This is an amendment to the basic standard. A Classic Bully is determined by it’s body structure and build. Both sex dogs with lighter body frames and less overall body mass, but still exibiting “bully” traits.
Classic Bully variety is simply an American Bully dog having lighter body frames (lighter bone) and less overall body mass (less substance) than the Standard American Bully. Aside from this difference, the Classic Bully variety follows the same standard as the Standard American Bully.
This is an amendment to the basic standard, determined by it’s adult height. It is important to note that the XL Bully variety is simply taller than the Standard American Bully. XL dogs share the same build, body type and breed type as the Standard American Bully.
Males over 20″-23″ at the withers. Females over 19″-22″ at the withers.
HOME OF THE EXTREME BUILD POCKET AMERICAN BULLY
Initially from Houston, Texas, Venomline (formerly Texas Size Bullies) is now located in sunny South Florida.
Venomline canines have been highlighted in Rolling Stone Magazine, BULLY KING Magazine, Bully Girl Magazine, in Music Videos and on TV (NBC, Barcroft Animals)
Venomline is known for producing some of the thickest dogs in the world, without sacrificing conformation or health. Venomline's pocket bullies are known for having massive heads, dense bone, broad chests, wide shoulders, short muzzles, and being packed rock solid with muscle on short & compact frames.
They are different than most kennels in the fact that they do not use a traditional kennel set up. Their dogs sleep in beds and are part of their family, not kept locked up in kennels all day. Venomline prides themselves in producing dogs with “wow” factor along with an excellent temperament. Unlike many of the "extreme" type American Bullies today, Venomline dogs display impressive athleticism despite the heavy muscle/bone they carry. Their belief that a dog that cannot run, jump or be active isn't a dog, it's a toy.
Venomline dogs are both DNA & Health Tested, all puppies come with health certificates from a licensed veterinarian, ABKC registration paperwork at a minimum, as well as being up to date on all shots & de-worming. In addition to this, Venomline provides a health guarantee for their customers that covers any genetic issues.
Venomline Studs are some of the most sought after Studs in the world. The demand for offspring off of Venomline Studs adds to the value of their Stud Service and helps their cutomers focus on the litter, not worrying about sales. This is just one of the many reasons, top breeding programs and new breeders alike choose Venomline Studs. The pocket bully breeder ships semen (Stud Service) worldwide.
View our World Class Studs. We are also experienced and familiar with the import process and regulations for shipping semen to any country.
Venomline (South Florida) is proud to announce the opening of our 2nd location-Venomline Southlocated in North Carolina.
What separates Venomline from many other breeders is thefemalesused in their breeding program. Any breeder can use a top Stud, but Venomline knows that it takes both a Top level Stud and a Top Level bitch to produce top quality litters on a consistent basis.
Females are integral to the success of any breeding program. Without using top quality female to match a Top Stud, litters will more than likely end up being a watered down version of what was initially hoped for. Knowing this, Venomline’s focus for the past 7 years has been primarily on producing the best possible Pocket Females to match theirTop Tier Studs. Foundation Females that are linebred to produce.
Venomline's litters are usually sold out by the time that the pups are born and most litters are reserved in advance. If you are interested in a purchasing a puppy, check out their available pups for sale. If they do not have any listed for sale, the best way is to go about it is to reserve a pick off of an upcoming breeding.

THE 1ST EVER 2X VENOM LITTER (VENOM X MOANA) UPDATE
In 2018 Top Extreme Build Pocket American Bully Breeder Venomline carried out the first ever 2X Venom breeding (A breeding where Louis V Line’s Venom’s daughters was bred back to her Sire)
This method of breeding has been around for centuries and has enabled top breeders in several different breeds to establish some of the best bloodlines. But, inbreeding comes with several risks and should not be carried out by the novice breeder.
We’ll cover more on the types of breeding including inbreeding, linebreeding, outcrossing, back breeding, grading up and duel sired in our next article.
After much thought, DNA & genetic testing- Venomline decided on Moana for the first 2X Venom breeding.
The results were incredible. We have seen many Sires bred back to their offspring by novice breeders with disastrous results. In breedings where Venom was bred to offspring of his (there have only been 3) there has not been a kink, overbite or health issue up to this point. Thats unheard of, when inbreeding.

I could be wrong, but I believe Worldstar & Nicky Jam are the two youngest. Anyhow, very proud of this boy and congratulations to his owners.

One of the Top Producing Studs in the World: Louis V son- Venom, is going head to head with one of Grand Champion Chumper’s best daughters, and one of the bulliest females in the World, Swizz.
This is Swizz’s 1st litter, and the crazy part is Swizz was only 10 months old in the photos below, and only 15 months old in the video below. Now at a year and a half old, this is a 75lb female on a Pocket frame, with a 24" head.
That just doesn’t happen on a female. It definitely doesn’t happen on a Pocket female, and I can honestly say that I’ve personally never seen it on a Pocket Female that’s clean enough to win in the Show Ring.
Swizz got the majority of her points toward ABKC Champion in her 1st outing and 2 Majors
This girl is on another level entirely, she’d out stack about 95% of the Studs out right now.. if we could find any willing to stack next to her.

Barcroft Animals- Venom is one of the most sought after studs in the world, with Matt having to limit the number of customers to three per week, and each puppy is sold for around $8000. In a single year, Venom’s puppies can generate sales of over a million dollars, with Matt struggling to keep up with demand.
“Look Mister, there are some rules that you've got to follow: First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight. Second, don't give him any water, not even to drink.]
But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget.. no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs.. never feed him after midnight.” He will multiply.
For those of you reading this too young to get that reference, do yourself a favor and watch Gremlins the 80's Classic. We didn't have the special effects that you're used to, but the movies were better.
Venom has proven again just how consistent a Stud he is, producing yet another exact replica in his son Mini Chunk. It's scary how similar these guys are. Anyways, here's some pics from the father/son duo's day at the park. They had a blast together and finished the afternoon with a nap together on the couch.
