The American Bulldog is a medium sized molossoid dog. Powerful, compact and athletic, it has a well-developed frame and musculature. There are 2 types of American Bulldogs. The first, called Bully, is stockier, has a shorter muzzle and a well marked stop. The second, called Standard, is higher on legs and slimmer, while remaining massive. His snout is also longer. Nowadays, the majority of dogs are hybrids. In other words, crosses of the two types Bully and Standard.
American Bulldog Race history
The American Bulldog descends from the “Old English Working Bulldog” , formerly used by the British for the management of herds of cattle and the guard. Several of the English migrants who arrived in the United States brought their working dogs with them. It is precisely in the United States, and particularly in the southeastern states of the country (Georgia, Alabama, Florida), that the most powerful and most athletic specimens have been chosen over the selections to give rise to the race as we know it today.
John D. Johnson has developed the Bully type , while Allan Scott is at the origin of the Standard type . The first dogs of the American Bulldog breed were registered by the National Kennel Club in 1970. At the time, they were called American Pit Bulldog. They then received the American Bulldog name to no longer confuse them with the Pitbull . The American Bulldog breed has not yet been recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale. In France, the French Club of the American Bulldog was created in 1999.
