We as a family absolutely fell in love with the American Bully breed. This breed is so diverse that they have met and exceeded all of our expectations when looking for a family companion and well-rounded pet. We firmly believe that the American Bully can do it all! We have been lucky enough to enjoy this incredible breed with a lot of help from an experienced group of individuals in the American Bully breeding world. We strive to do the same by providing our services of breeding exceptionally well-tempered dogs with the look to match.

Timberline Bully is an independent, home-based, family owned and operated XL American Bully breeding program located in the beautiful and scenic rural city of Merill, Oregon (Klamath County). Our home is located on four open acres, surrounded by beautiful pines, and not far from Stukel Mountain and the California/Oregon state line. While we have been breed enthusiasts for some time now, our breeding program is new – established in 2020. Our Bullies are ABKC & UKC registered. 

Timberline Bully is owned and operated by Jordan Newman & Willie Shamhart.
Our goal will always be to produce healthy (Embark tested), well-tempered, beautiful bullies appropriate for both companion homes as a furry family member and show homes. As ethical and responsible breeders, our promise to you is to remain helpful, to be responsible to the breed, and to place our puppies into the perfect homes. And we stand by this promise.

The ABKC XL Bully Breed Standard

This is an amendment to the basic standard which a XL Bully is determined by its adult height. Males over 20 inches (51 cm)  – 23 inches (57 cm) at the withers. Females over 19 inches (48 cm) – 22 inches (54 cm) at the withers.

Important to note that the XL Bully variety is simply taller than the Standard American Bully. XL Bully dogs share the same build, body type, and breed type as the Standard American Bully, and are expected to carry a heavily muscled, massive, bulky body type.

The UKC American Bully Breed Standard

The ideal height range for mature males is from 17 to 20 inches at the withers; for mature females it is from 16 to 19 inches at the withers. It is important to note that dogs slightly over or under these height ranges are not to be penalized unless they are disproportionately massive or rangy. Overall balance and the correct proportion of weight to height is far more important than the dog s actual weight and/or height.
