The American Bully’s body looks massive but compact at the same time. The format is square. The distance from the dog’s withers to the elbows and from the elbows to the paws is the same. The option when the second value is slightly less than the first is acceptable but undesirable. The ribcage is formed by smoothly rounded ribs, does not protrude beyond the shoulders. Looks very wide due to the huge distance between the front legs of the bull. The back is short and strong and can be raised in relation to the croup. The latter is slightly inclined to the base of the tail. The loin is short and wide. The bottom line is moderately tucked up.
