Overview
Nearly extinct after WWII, the American Bulldog was saved by the efforts of one man named John D. Johnson. Originally used for the blood sport of bull baiting, this breed became prized by farmers for their intelligence, working abilities, stamina, and protective nature. American Bulldogs were also used to hunt wild boar, bear, raccoon, and squirrel. Considered to be a rare breed, the American Bulldog is ranked number one for their versatile capabilities.
Character
The American Bulldog is extremely athletic, powerful, and muscular. Strong and agile, this breed is very swift and is capable of leaping heights of six feet or more. They are brave, alert, courageous, and fearlessly determined.
Temperament
American Bulldogs are typically friendly, happy, and devoted. They get along very well with children but due to their size are best suited for homes with older considerate children. They will generally do well with other dogs they have been raised with but do not do well with other small household pets or cats. The American Bulldog is a faithful and loyal companion that has strong guarding instincts. They are reserved and wary of strangers and aggressive toward dogs they do not know. This breed is not recommended for the novice dog owner.
Care
The short coat is easy to groom. Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush will help minimize loose hair. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. A relatively healthy breed, the American Bulldog may be prone to hip dysplasia.
Coat
The American Bulldog has a close fitting coat that is short and harsh. The coat color comes in solid white, with various combinations and patterns of brown, tan, red, and brindle. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
Early intense socialization and obedience training are an absolute must for this breed. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. The American Bulldogs talents include tracking, hunting, schutzhund, weight pulling, and guarding.
Activity
The American Bulldog does best when they are given a job to do. They enjoy frequent securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and romping in the yard. This breed does best on a farm with room to roam or in a home with a large fenced yard. They will do okay in an apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, attention, and stimulation.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of American 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.

My American Bulldog puppy hasn't eaten in 24 hours should I be concerned? My American Bulldog has also been throwing up like clem and has been sleeping all day. He has the occasional drink of water. He has no interest in playing or even going out for a walk.

That's a HUGE red flag. It's time to go to the vet. Depending on the age of your pup, you could be looking at worms or even parvo. Get him to the vet a.s.a.p and bring a stool sample if you can.

Are American Bulldogs good for a senior male? How much exercise do American Bulldogs require?

The American Bulldog is a very active breed of dog that is not for beginner owners. They need positive reinforcement training with a firm handler that understands dog behavior. They need structured exercise every day or they can become destructive. Two hours of exercise a day is a good day for an American Bulldog. Socialization and training incorporated in their daily exercise is a great way to make sure that your American Bulldog is well socialized and a good dog. Although they can be aloof with strangers, the American Bulldog should be confident in strange or new situations, always looking to his/her owner for guidance. They are powerfully strong dogs and must be taught manner's through positive reinforcement training from and early age, and training will continue throughout the dogs life.

Yes, like every other dog as long as they are socialized they make wonderful family pets. I have 3 kids between the ages of 9 and 18. They have been raised with American Bulldogs as our family pet. My sister has 4 kids (4-10). They were raised with American Bulldogs as well.

A puppy with no champion lineage can be around $500-$800. With Champion lineage usually $1000 or more. There are puppies for sale much cheaper but remember you get what you pay for. Puppies, whose parents have been genetically tested for diseases to help assure the health of the puppies, will be more expensive.

My AB has gone off food and drinking excessively. Really worried, any ideas of whats wrong? He's also doing this strange sucking thing with his mouth. Thid is strange for him as he usually eats his good within seconds. Any advice would be massively appreciated.

You MUST become dominant early with the American Bulldog breed. The strength of your AB is beyond most breeds. Being firm is a must .
