American Bulldog

 

Origin:

 

The American Bulldog has a long history, pre-dating its arrival in the US. Originally, there was only one breed: the Bulldog. This Bulldog type has been known in Europe, predating the time of Caesar. The American Bulldog of today, though they share lineage, are vastly different from the original dog— much gentler and loyal, yet still retaining its strength and tenacity.

History

The American Bulldog is a very muscular, sturdy dog with a large, powerful head and jaws. They are very strong, but agile and light on their feet. Their chest is wide and the muscular neck tapers from shoulders to head. Their neck may have a slight dewlap. The head is square and broad with muscular cheeks and a furrow between the rounded eyes. The American Bulldog also has a strong muzzle that’s shaped like a box.
