Why don’t American bully breeders be upfront on pup pricing? Right now a pocket to micro bully pup is starting from 5K to 25k (ridiculous). These “bully” breeders want to make top dollar off this newish breed off dog and make it a luxury dog like the frenchies however every time I inquire or think of asking for the price, it blows my mind that they seller/breeders vet your profile and then tell you not waist there time bc you’re not paying 10-30k for this “high quality dog”. Jeezus it’s a dog! If you don’t want people to waist your time, instead of asking buyers to dm for price just post the price!! Why is such a secret of how much their bullies cost? Who are you hiding the price from? Who is buying XX,XXX dogs regularly? In my opinion, due to the way the us economy is going, they might run out American clientele with these “bullies”. Honestly, more than half of American bullies on Instagram (bc they never have a website or local kennel) look deformed, it’s very hard finding a correct structure breed for a correct price under 5-7k. But anyways my questions regards why American Bully breeders pricing such a secret ? Love the breed, but hate the cockiness of the breeders.

As @Lillith mentions, it is a designer dog which is nothing but an overpriced mutt. The "micro" and "pocket" and "xl" and "xxl" versions are nothing but the marketing of a lack of standard for the breed. All American bullies are shown as "standard" as puppies, then are split out into the various "breed varieties" when they reach their full height. What does that mean? That means the breeders cannot breed a dog for a consistent size. And that size difference can occur within the same litter. And that means when they sella "pocket bully puppy", they are simply making a guess as to its adult size and they are likely to be wrong. So, they charge outrageous prices because they may have a disgruntled buyer a year later. The outrageous price covers the "financial loss" that will occur when the pocket bully puppy grows up to be an XL bully dog.
