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.

Sorry, I must be too long winded. the question was submitted before I was finished! Given my situational description, does it seem that a Blueblood would do well in that type of environment. Julie

The Blue Blood Bulldog is a loving companion and a protector. They will guard their owner and their owners home, but they do not have the natural instincts to guard other animals. The Blue Blood Bulldog also has a semi-high prey drive that could impact your flock. I would suggest a herding breed of dog or a flock guardian breed. Either of those would have the basic instincts to protect the home, yourself and the flock. They can be trained easily to do so as well. Now, if the specific Blue Blood Bulldog pup was trained from a pup to leave the chickens alone and to protect them; it could possibly work. But until the dog was an adult, I would never leave them alone in the yard with a flock of vulnerable chickens. As well; the possibility of the dog chasing off a predator and then being in that heightened state of mind, could go after a flighty chicken on reaction impulse alone. So being careful with this breed and wanting to train it for a different purpose than what it was created for may or may not work out. Depends on the puppy him/her-self, your training and dedication to the dog being a flock guardian.

I live alone on 3 acres/semi wooded. I have a small flock of chickens which I have completely replaced 4 times due to fox and raccoon destruction. I have an old, chubby, lazy, sweet German Shepherd.....but she is not interested in confronting ANYTHING! As a guardian dog, she is worthless.....but I love her. Does the Blueblood have a prey instinct that would cause him to kill chickens or could he/she be trained to protect them? The chickens are in my fenced in back yard..about acre. The dog would only need to stay with the chickens during vulnerable times....dusk until I close them in their coop at night. There are always hawks and owls wanting to kill the chickens during the day, but I cant expect a dog to be able to protect them against overhead predators.

I just purchased a 6 month old Alapha Blue Blood. He is a great protection dog but he is too aggressive towards my other animals and extremely food aggressive. Any tips on how to work with him or should I re home him?

If you purchased the dog for protection work then the dog should be trained by an experience protection work dog trainer. The dog would be taught to ignore other animals and be fine around food. If you purchased this dog and he is naturally protective over you, as the breed is, then you need to contact a professional dog trainer that specializes in aggressive dogs to work with his aggressive behavior around other animals and food. But please note that that can be very expensive, so do your home work. If you do decide to re-home him, also note that in most states it is illegal to re-home a dog that has displayed aggression and so you must do your home work as well if you decide that you don't have the time and funds to train him.

My 6 yr old Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog had a gastropexy surgery about a month ago. The surgery went well and he's almost fully healed. He's been eating and drinking with no problems. Yesterday though he wretched in the morning and two other times throughout the day. We withheld food from him and he wouldn't eat. I finally got him to eat some food with banana baby food in it. He was fine the rest of the evening. This morning he wouldn't eat again and vomited twice within 30mins. He then ate rice and chicken and two cookies and seems to be fine. Any idea of what could be going on? He eats lamb and rice 4health dog food, there aren't any recalls and food is highly recommended.

If your dog is having problems, he needs to go to the vet. It could be a complication due to the surgery or it could be nothing but an upset stomach. But it is best to get it checked out by a licensed vet as soon as possible.
