American Bulldogs are well-balanced athletic dogs that demonstrate great strength, endurance, agility, and a friendly attitude. Historically, they were bred to be utility dogs used for working the farm.
Origin: United States
The American Bulldog is a powerfully built dog whose original function was that of a farm utility dog and family companion and protector. The American Bulldog is thought to have been in the United States as early as the 1700s and many arrived with their owners and families during the 17th and 18th centuries.
The breed was well known for its abilities for catching feral cattle and pigs and became a useful tool to the small farmers and ranchers. The breed largely survived, particularly in the southern states, due to this ability. The breed almost died out during WWI and WWII, with the only surviving dogs kept on farms primarily in the southeast. The two men who are recognized as the pioneers of bringing the breed back from possible extinction are John D. Johnson and Alan Scott.
Our goal as a breeder is to preserve the American Bulldog breed and return it to its historical characteristics through Phenotype and Genotype breeding. We also apply proper nutritional practices along with supplements for joint and muscle health, practice non-impact exercises to decrease possible damage to both bones and joints, and provide educational information to not only potential buyers but to anyone interested in canine health and genetic testing. We are working with other breeders to proactively address the benefits of genetic testing for health and breed purity.
