This standard once again has been taken from the parent club site The Kennel Club(KC) in the UK.

General Appearance

Smooth-coated, fairly thick set, rather low in stature, broad, powerful and compact. Head, fairly large in proportion to size but no point so much in excess of others as to destroy the general symmetry, or make the dog appear deformed, or interfere with its powers of motion. Face relatively short, muzzle broad, blunt and inclined upwards although not excessively so. Dogs showing respiratory distress highly undesirable. Body fairly short, well knit, limbs stout, well muscled and in hard condition with no tendency towards obesity. Hindquarters high and strong. Bitches not so grand or well developed as dogs.

Jaws broad, strong and square, lower jaw slightly projecting in front of upper with moderate turn up. Over nose wrinkle, if present, whole or broken, must never adversely affect or obscure eyes or nose. Pinched nostrils and heavy over nose roll are unacceptable and should be heavily penalised. Viewed from front, the various properties of the face must be equally balanced on either side of an imaginary line down centre.

Eyes

Seen from front, situated low down in skull, well away from ears. Eyes and stop in same straight line, at right angles to furrow. Wide apart, but outer corners within the outline of cheeks. Round, of moderate size, neither sunken nor prominent, in colour very dark – almost black – showing no white when looking directly forward. Free from obvious eye problems.

Ears

Set high – i.e. front edge of each ear (as viewed from front) joins outline of skull at top corner of such outline, so as to place them as wide apart, as high and as far from eyes as possible. Small and thin. ’Rose ear‘ correct, i.e. folding inwards back, upper or front inner edge curving outwards and backwards, showing part of inside of burr.

Ribs not flat-sided, but well rounded. Forelegs very stout and strong, well developed, set wide apart, thick, muscular and straight, bones of legs large and straight, not bandy nor curved and short in proportion to hindlegs, but not so short as to make back appear long, or detract from dog’s activity. Elbows low and standing well away from ribs. Pasterns short, straight and strong.

Body

Chest wide, prominent and deep. Back short, strong, broad at shoulders. Slight fall to back close behind shoulders (lowest part) whence spine should rise to loins (top higher than top of shoulder), curving again more suddenly to tail, forming slight arch – a distinctive characteristic of breed. Body well ribbed up behind with belly tucked up and not pendulous.

Hindquarters

Lack of tail, inverted or extremely tight tails are undesirable.

Appearing to walk with short, quick steps on tips of toes, hind feet not lifted high, appearing to skim ground, running with one or other shoulder rather advanced. Soundness of movement of the utmost importance.

Coat

Fine texture, short, close and smooth (hard only from shortness and closeness, not wiry).

Color

Whole or smut, (i.e. whole colour with black mask or muzzle). Only whole colours (which should be brilliant and pure of their sort) viz., brindles, reds with their various shades, fawns, fallows etc., white and pied (i.e. combination of white with any of the foregoing colours). Dudley, black and black with tan highly undesirable.

Size

Dogs: 25 kgs (55 lbs); bitches: 23 kgs (50 lbs).

Faults

Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog and on the dog’s ability to perform its traditional work.

Note

Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.

BBC takes firm stance on foundation breedings for SHORTY BULLs!

image

Owner and President of The BBC (Bull Breed Coalition) Jamie Sweet has always had a very stern stance on foundation breedings writhing the Shorty Bull breed and it seems the guidelines have only tightened with this new press release Wednesday afternoon Aug 23 2016:

**ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BBC**

As president of the BBC and the Founder of Shorty Bulls, I do everything within my control to keep our breed on track and moving forward. It seems lately weve had alot of inquiries about foundation breedings and accepted Shorty Bull colors, and patterns.

I would like to announce the BBCs stance on Foundation Breedings. Foundation Breeding is necessary to build a breed and it should be used to bring in new blood, preserve trais or reinforce traits that are being lost. Foundation breeding is not for beginners, as its purpose must be completely understood along with the risks of involved. Risks can be lessened by the complete dismissal of 1 year olds that do not fit within the requirements set forth in the breed standard. Foundation breedings require ample space as puppies will not be officially evaluated until the age of 1 year.

Shorty Bulls are not created by breeding other breeds to a Shorty Bull and calling it such. The reasoning behind the 1 year waiting period is to ensure that the dogs bred, or fitting the breed standard, in type, temperament, and overall soundness. This is also why there must be an approval process of which individual dogs can be used, as dogs may produce 1, or 2 dogs that will be accepted, but their individual type will be lacking and introducing said dogs to the gene pool can be more damaging, than beneficial in the long run.

Any person considering Foundation Breeding must have preapproval BEFORE the breeding is done.

Pictures (Front, Side, Rear, Top) as well as videos moving towards camera, away, and displaying side gait, of Sire and Dam must be presented at time of applying for F1 approval.

Upon completion of approved breeding all pups must be accounted for, via number of pups and pictures. Upon year old physical examination all dogs deemed unworthy of FI status, or meeting necessary requirements will have to be altered (spayed/neutered) these dogs will no longer be eligible to be used in F1 programs. The dogs approved will be eligible to be shown as well as bred.

Anyone considering Foundation Breedings MUST SUBMIT A RESUME PRIOR TO BREEDING. Said resume shall be typed and shall include a detailed summary of breeding experience, your personal goals for the foundation breeding you propose and a detailed explanation of your plans with each resulting puppy. Lastly, explain how this particular F1 breeding helps the Shorty Bull breed as a whole.

Resumes will be reviewed by a panel of master breeders and preapproval will be given on an individual basis by BBC. F1 breedings that are deemed beneficial to the breed will be monitored and evaluated by BBC and the breeder for the first year and final decision on acceptance will be determined by BBC.

In an effort to protect the integrity of the breed at this time the BBC will not accept foundation breedings from any other registry.

Colors- BBC accepts all colors WITH THE EXCEPTION OF Black and Tan, Merle or Tri Markings in any shade.

“FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD”

imageThey say FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD……

Meaning for those who are brave enough to be bold good fortune almost certainly waits. That quote was written in a much more ancient culture but rings true today as we sky rocket ourselves through this new era of politically correctness and over sensitive feelings and an overabundance of people’s opinions who have no frame of reference for that opinion other than the 3 inches in front of their face.

This does not mean the loudest or the cockiest one in the room who is making wild moves is the boldest, often times this is the court jester merely puffing feathers to appear larger than real life. Being bold in this era means being brave enough to blaze your own path toward your goal, however big or small you may think it is at the time of inception, and not letting the scared or timid hold you back from reaching your full potential. Having the courage to see things in a different light and understand that there is a better way to reach your goal through the that light even if you are the one and only person who even acknowledges that light exists and that path exists. Being bold enough to open your ears to all the negative things being thrown at you and not letting it budge you even in the slightest degree off the course you set for your future.

I look across our vast and wonderful community and I see so many people already so deep into this BULL BREED lifestyle and so many new people coming in a catching the same bug I caught almost a decade ago, and I can’t help but wonder how much of this community actually possesses the courage to make this a life-long lifestyle. I have watched so many people come and go, for negative reasons as well as new opportunities opening up, I know there will be some people who think this life is against them. There are some out there who feed into the negativity and hate and let it affect them on a deeper level who are doing great things which is why they are getting the negativity. If I could reach out to every one of the people dealing with this I would say to them FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD, stay the course no matter what stares you in the face, no matter who brings the negativity. Even if no one else see what you see as long as you drive toward that vision and you are happy with what you are doing…..if you see it you can make it happen.

Look at this picture and tell me what you see…….

I see years of hard work and dedication by true to the breed dog men. I see an uncountable number of set backs and road blocks, any one of which could have altered the course of history. I see haters and fake friends and negativity, so much at times almost overwhelming. I see yards and programs built and rebuilt and rebuilt again just to get to where we are now. Above all these things I see dog men with the will to withstand anything and everything the world has thrown in the way so far and the vision to understand the ultimate goal.

Robert Lee and Nolan Cagwin THEE BUSS is one of the best examples of a POCKET AMERICAN BULLY on the planet salute and nothing but respect!

Rob without BEASTRO and your ability to see the potential in the CLEOPATRA breeding MYE-STRO and LOKI might not be here.

CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE GET ALL THESE DUDES TOGETHER? Man I can’t wait to get to TEXAS!

I can’t wait to get a pic with all of them in a line……a living representation of FURTUNE FAVORING THE BOLD!
