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.

What are some warning signs to consider as a new puppy parent before bringing an American Bulldog into my home?

1 Comment

As long as you've done your research on the breed, the breeder and have spent some face-time with the breed and the puppy you are getting, as well as the sire and dam, being a new puppy parent is different for all. But make sure you do three things for your pup, get him/her into a vet on a regular basis; sign your puppy up for puppy obedience classes with a positive reinforcement trainer and socialize, socialize, socialize your puppy as much as you can.

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?

1 Comment

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.

I have a male AB. My granddaughters are his world. They are 2and 6. He would follow them anywhere and tolerate anything they do. God forbid a stranger try to grab them. My lovely boy will turn to demon spawn if a stranger approaches uninvited. He is very protective of the kids. The 6 year old calls him mama dog... My daughter has a female that lives with her and the girls and she is the same, loving, tolerant and protective...

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.

How long do American Bulldogs live

3 Comments

I have read that the average life span of an AB is around 10-11 years, but we recently lost our family AB after 13 years! We actually bought him to use for hog hunting in South Texas and when he was about 6 years old, my husband quit hog hunting and got rid of all of his dogs....except for our AB! He was an outside dog, except in winter when we'd put him in the laundry room. He just passed away yesterday...... :-( We miss him terribly, but he had a very full life!

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

Adopted 8 wk old ABD. I just learned this breed does not do well with smaller pets. I am scared. Have two small under ten pound chichuahuas. I want to keep her, but worried about the other pets. Do you think an 8 wk old ABD with a lot of love will socialize safely?

I have a 25lb sheltie and a 10lb chiweenie that comes to visit a lot. My AB male is 120lbs of muscle. The reason they might not be good is due to the fact of the size difference. However, if raised as a pup with the older smaller dogs there shouldnt be a problem in fact you pup might look at the smaller dogs as if they were the alpha. lol. Unless there is an issue with your other dogs adjusting to the new addition there should not be a problem. I love mine, very gentle with infants as well as other animals. At a year old my AB went to visit Santa and there were yorkies there, he had no problems just wanted to see them. hope this helps.

He's a puppy so you should be good. Encourage him to be easy with the other dogs so when he gets bigger he's not being rough. We have 4 American Bulldogs and one 12 lb pekeinese that's 10yrs old as well as a cat. If they are raised with them everything should be ok.

My AB bites randamly .....so far family members because he is NOT social. I think he is more afraid He is in his third home because of situations. He has a lot of skin alergies. He is about 8 years old. I don't know what to do about biting. He bites to hurt ....always blood involved.

SOCIALIZE your American Bulldog, take him to a trainer and never let him around children he will always be unpredictable. But whatever you do show him love and stability, he is more than likely been abused or neglected.

If AB attacks a dog once will he do it again? I have had my AB for 2 1/2 years. I also have a maltese. The two of them have never had aany issues, but for some unknown reason my AB attacked the maltese. What are the chances that this would happen again if we keep them together?

How old is your dog.. is he/she 2 1/2 yrs of age? If so, your dog is coming of age and maturing. AB's are known for being dog aggressive, esp towards the same sex. THey can also be toy and food aggressive, as this is a dominant breed. If you are not planning on breeding your AB, you might spay or neuter. It's no guarantee it will help the behavior, but might possibly cut down on some of those raging hormones. If the two dogs no longer get along, for safety reasons, you might want to just keep them apart. There is a reason why the AB attacked. Small dog breeds often have big attitudes. Something the small dog is doing might be setting your AB off. Because of the size difference, I would definitely keep them seperated. If they both stay inside, crate training should be a must if you haven't already done so. Just keeping them apart should help by allowing each dog to have their own time with you etc. just incase there are any jealousy issues going on. Good luck!

Our AB just died of osteosarcoma at under three years of age. All he wanted to do was sleep, it could mean he is just slowing down but I would get him checked.

Wow! 15 is very old for a large breed dog and esp this breed. Sounds like he has lived a good, long life so far, and you've obviously taken very good care of him. Older dogs tend to slow way down, esp at that age. You might try putting him on a good supplement to see if it helps. A vet check up might be in order if you notice any illness, but sleeping a lot is something that a dog that age will most definitely do. I say let him take naps and sleep as he wants to. Sounds like he's earned it. : )

More info is definitely needed to help answer your question. Is this a puppy or very young dog? If so, you need to work with your dog. They need a firm, but kind owner, but one who will not allow the dog to get the upper hand. This breed is a dominant breed. Obedience training is a must! There are some great training videos on You Tube. Also, a lot of free info and training tips on Leerburg's site. Just Google Leerburg. Those folks have trained and worked with police dogs and tough cases. There is a lot of good free info on their site. It's up to you to start training your dog. They are really not ever too old to learn. I have obedience trained and titled dogs well beyond the puppy stage, so the old saying you can't teach an old dog new tricks is not correct. Work with your dog, even if you can only do so for 10-15 minutes per day. You will be amazed at the change in behavior, once your dog starts learning and practicing some obedience skills. Good luck! : )

She's probably just not ready yet. She will stand when ready. The first 7-10 days of bleeding is just the beginning. The week or 2 after that is when she will be in standing heat and will accept a male.
