Not to be confused with Ken Mollett's Victorian Bulldog, the Olde Victorian Bulldogge was developed in the United States by Carlos Woods, whose intention was to re-create the legendary working bulldogge of the Victorian-era Britain, as a more active and healthier alternative to the modern English Bulldog breed. Starting his breeding programme in 1988, Woods used English Bulldogs, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, German Boxers, Olde English Bulldogges and American Bulldogs as the foundation for the Olde Victorian Bulldogge, which inherited the desired qualities of its parent breeds, while not suffering from common health problems associated with some of them. The ideal type was established fairly soon and the Olde Victorian Bulldogge has been standardized in 1998.

Agile, powerful and muscular, this is an impressive Molosser, very much resembling the original variety of British working bulldogs. The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is well-boned, wide-chested and large-headed, but quite elegant in appearance and gracious in movement. While courageous and protective, this is not a vicious breed, but rather a well-mannered and even-tempered guardian, relying on its intelligence and natural instincts to appropriately react to perceived threats to its home and family. The Olde Victorian Bulldogge makes an excellent companion, loving of children and devoted to its master, but needs a fair ammount of training and socialization to control its somewhat stubborn and confrontational personality. This breed enjoys a fair ammount of excercise, but will do fine as an apartment pet if provided with sufficient activity outside.

The coat is short, flat and smooth, seen in common bully colourings.

Average height is around 19 inches.
