American Bulldog |United States|

American Bulldog |United States|

The American Bulldog is a powerful and athletic breed that benefits from mental as well as physical challenges. This breed is relatively quiet when at rest and in the home, but requires a fairly high amount of daily exercise and plenty of diversions. These are powerful dogs that can make excellent companions as long as they are properly socialized, supervised, and exercised. They have a strong pack instinct and will protect their families and property with vigor. There are two types of American Bulldog, the Standard and the Bully. The Bully is larger, heavier, and has a shorter muzzle.

HIstory

The breed traces back to the early bulldog types brought over to the United States during colonization. The dogs were required to be versatile working farm dogs and were used for protecting homes and livestock, herding cattle, hunting large game, and serving as companions. Sadly, they have also been used for illicit fighting. One man, John D. Johnston, was particularly influential in the development of the modern breed through his breeding initiative shortly after World War II. This helped to stabilize the dwindling population of American Bulldogs, and they now have a dedicated following.

American Bulldogs can have large litters, producing an average of eleven puppies
