Developed in the late 1980's by Robert E. Rice, a Florida bully enthusiast, the American Bullnese is primarily a companion breed. By crossing the French Bulldog with the Pekingese, the breed founder created a healthy and playful little family dog. Said to be very intelligent, the Bullnese is easy to train and enjoys human company. While the body is heavily-boned, this breed is very alert and agile.
The short coat is dense and soft, accepted in any colour. Average height is around 10 inches.
