Overview
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is a very rare breed. They fall under the Mastiff breed. It is nearly extinct. There are about 150-200 worldwide. This breed results from three generations of an old breeding program of the Lane Family in Georgia, USA. The program started back in the 1800's and was intended to rescue the "plantation dog" of Southern Georgia that was nearly extinct. This rare, bulldog-type guard dog descends form Buck Lane's dog, named Otto. Buck Lane's granddaughter, Lana Lou Lane, continued the breeding program until she passed away in her sleep on July 20th 2001. In 1986, Ms. Lane Lou Lane contacted the Animal Research Foundation (ARF) regarding a rare breed known as the "Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog". Ms. Lane's purpose in calling and talking to ARF's Founder, Mr. Tom D. Stodghill, was because Mr. Stodghill has registered a number of rare breeds within the Foundation. Knowing this information, she asked Mr. Stodghill to provide her with a plan so that she could insure th
Character
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is a grand, powerful, exaggerated bulldog with a broad head and natural drop ears. The purpose of this Breed is: Guardian, protection, companion, sport and farm use. As a family guard dog, the Alapaha's mental characteristics and abilities are very impressive. These dogs have been used for centuries as a do-all farm dog. They are used for working cattle and catching hogs.
Temperament
They show strength and alertness, yet agile and athletic, having an amazing endurance. This canine gives the impression of nobility, therefore, the name; Blue Blood. Guarding his master's person, family, and property is a natural instinct of this Breed. They were never bred for aggression, but he will protect, and go into action if and when the need arises. The Alapaha is a natural playmate and protector of children; he will for instance play different with a three year old than a twelve year old. He can also get along well with other animals, even cats.
Care
Little grooming is needed. Occasionally brush to remove dead hair and it will cut down on shedding. Bathe once every two weeks. This breed is an average shedder.
Coat
The Alapaha's coat is relatively short and fairly stiff. They are average shedders. Their coat comes in a variety of colors; blue merle, brown merle, red merle brindle, tan, red, brown, black, and white.
Training
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is very intelligent and you will be able to teach your dog whatever you feel his/her abilities should be. They excel at obedience. Therefore they are easy to housetrain and they will learn to walk on a leash within two days.
Activity
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is very energetic and athletic. They will do well in an apartment if they are sufficiently exercised. They are very inactive indoors and will do best with at least an average-sized yard. They are used for working cattle and catching hogs, thus their muscles are long and powerful. This means that they are never stocky and short built and their muzzle is not short like that of a Boxer for instance. Their longer muzzle makes breathing easier while running. These athletic, active dogs have a demand for exercise. They will enjoy long walks or running around and playing.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Why does my male Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog pee on my bed and blankets?

If your dog is not neutered, then he is marking his territory. But if he is, then it is a behavioral issue that a dog behaviorist can help you with. Contacting your vet as well is a good idea, as he may have a bladder issue that he is trying to tell you about.

you can't really make the drooling stop, but you can clean it more frequently by wiping his/her face down when it drools and keep it out of hot weather.

I adopted a 9 month old pup back in February from an animal rescue center and they thought he was a boxer but a vet check shows he is an bulldog. His coloring shows him to be an alphaha. Is it normal for these type of dogs as pups to try to bite and hold on you you. He is good most of the time but sometimes when he is excited he tries to grab ahold of either your leg or hand.

The breed is known for the 'bite and hold', but it should be taught that it is unacceptable at all times with humans. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer and he/she can help you teach your puppy human bite inhibition.

I have even had friends comment on how he is the type of puppy that makes people want a puppy due to how calm and chill he is. I would reccomend this breed to anyone!!!

Our 1 year old female alapaha blue blood bulldog does great with our 3 year old son. She can get a little excited at times, but for the most part she is very gentle with him and they play together all of the time. My son's sits on her back, plays fetch with her and can even give a commands with no problem. I would suggest maybe an alapaha between the ages of 9 months and 1 year because young puppies do not know their strength and can easily knock down a child during play.

Does the alpaha blue blood bulldog has any relative illness

1 Comment

Not really illness. But alpaha blue blood bulldogs with crank tails can be less athletic at times and more prone to heat stroke and are only good for being pets. They should not be bred. Check the eyes if they are saggy where you can see the red haw of the eyes they could have more eye problems since that allows more dirt and debris to get in them and it is not to the standard that states eyes should be tight. I have seen a few cases of cherry eye to where the eye goes in instead of out do to heavy wrinkles. Also a Merle to Merle is not good and can produce deaf dogs and dogs with eye deformities and weak immune systems.

Honestly, it all depends on the personality and temperament of each individual dogs. Boxers do have a history of dogfights and aggression, but can be lovable as well. Alapaha Blue Blood Dogs were bred for protection, and will fight to defend their owners. Both dogs were originally bred for protection. It greatly depends on the personality of your boxer. It would also be a good idea to adopt an Alapaha as a puppy, and hope to create a stronger connection with it and the other dog.

Are Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs rough with small kids???

1 Comment

Not if the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is taught not to. I have 9 of them and they are all perfectly behaved with my 5 year old. She has grown up with Alapahas and has never been pushed, jumped on, mouthed on, or disrespected by them in anyway. She climbs all over them and walks them and even shows them. Alapahas by nature are not hyper dogs. But like any breed if allowed to get away with jumping ,rough housing or chewing on people they will. They are a bully breed and will test the limits like a toddler will. And if left out in the yard and not kept as a part of the family an Alapaha could become hyper, and aggressive. They need an alpha leader and good socialization and then they are the greatest family companion dogs you will ever find.

Most of my friends are terrified of him because he gets so excited to the extent were he is mouthing them, quite hard. He made my niece (Who is 17yrs) Cry as he practicably mauled her hand. What can I do to break him of this habit!

As long as you be firm, not too mean, but strong enough to handle him you'll be good. Keep working on doing daily routines of training with him. I do that with my Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, now she is EVEN more gentle than ever, especially with little children.

Since dogs are closely related to wolves, most of them are still programmed to a pack structure. Domesticated dogs think of humans to be in their "Pack" as well. You need to be firm with your Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog in order to achieve the "pack leader" status. Training your dog would greatly benefit. give him a treat or any other positive reinforcement (playing with toy) if (and only if) he does something correct (Ex. Leave visitors alone), and RIGHT after he does it. Here is a link to a youtube video showing a good way to train this behavior out.
