Bulldog Breeds

American Bulldog

The American Bulldog is a muscular and athletic breed that was originally used for bull-baiting and farm work in the United States. During the 20th century, the breed nearly became extinct, but was revived through efforts by a small group of breed enthusiasts who worked to re-establish the breed's characteristics and preserve its heritage. Today, the American Bulldog is recognized as a versatile and family-friendly companion, known for its loyalty, courage, and affectionate nature.

The American Bulldog's breeding history is one of preservation and revival. The breed was brought to the United States from England in the 17th century, and was used for bull-baiting and farm work. With the decline of these activities, the breed's popularity also declined, and by the mid-20th century, the American Bulldog was on the brink of extinction. However, a small group of breed enthusiasts worked to revive the breed, using dogs from the southern United States to create a new strain that was more athletic and muscular.

The American Bulldog has been shown in various dog shows, but its recognition as a show breed has been limited. The breed is recognized by several kennel clubs, including the United Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club, but it is not as well-known or popular as other breeds. Despite this, the American Bulldog remains a beloved companion for many families and is valued for its courage, loyalty, and affectionate nature.

English Bulldog

Originally introduced into Great Britain by the Romans for dog fight competitions, the English Bulldog (or sometimes the British Bulldog) was used to herd cattle into markets. They are commonly recognized by their short, muscular bod, wrinkled skin and a squished face with stub nose. Although bred for fighting, today Bulldogs make excellent family companions due to their mild nature. They enjoy mild exercise and relaxing - a long nap on the couch after a walk around the neighborhood is just the ticket!
