Choosing a Name for Your American Bully

The American Bully is a companion dog breed, recently recognized by the United Kennel Club in 2013. A cross between a Staffordshire Terrier and an American Pit Bull Terrier, these dogs can look intimidating but are actually often very friendly.

The American Bully has been bred to be a family dog, with a gentle and friendly temperament. Aggressive behaviors have been intentionally bred out of these dogs, so they make loving and loyal pets.

American Bullies often have a high pain tolerance, which makes them more agreeable with small children who are likely to pull on their ears or tails. The American Bully is a very intelligent dog and will respond well to training.

They enjoy a challenge and will love the opportunity to use their muscles, so they make great exercise companions! If you ‘ve recently adopted an American Bully and are searching for the perfect name for your new companion, read on to get some ideas.

How To Name Your American Bully

  • The first thing to consider is that you probably should not change the name of an adult dog. If you are adopting an older dog who already has a name, they most likely already answer to that name and may find it difficult to change.
  • However, American Bullies are very intelligent and may catch on quickly if you change their name to something similar. For example, if your dog’s name is “Chance”, you might change his name to “Lance”.
  • Try to avoid common dog names like “Buddy” or “Lucky”, as that can lead to confusion at the dog park or the vet’s office. Pick something unique for your special friend!
  • Choose a name between one and two syllables, as dogs will be more likely to answer to a short name, and it will be easier for you to say when calling your dog.
  • Make sure you really like your dog’s name, because you’ll be saying it often!
  • Don’t be afraid to try out your dog’s new name for a few days to see if it fits for both of you. If you don’t love it after a week, pick something new.
