Altman White English Bulldog
The ancestors of this breed were known as "White English" and belonged to the larger, working type that existed before the English Bulldog was reduced for the modern show ring.
Developed by Ray Altman of Waycross, Georgia, this powerful American breed is a reconstruction of the "Old English White" strain of working bulldogs of the 19th century. The Altman White English Bulldog is a dedicated farm watchdog and can be employed to drive and control cattle, as well as for hunting wild hogs and other large game, thanks to its agility, tenacity and courage. Broad-chested, wide-headed and straight-backed, this muscular canine is truly an impressive working Molosser.
Its intelligence and love of children make it an excellent family pet, but proper socialization and handling are of great importance, due to this breed's natural territorial and protective instincts, as well as its unfriendly attitude towards strange dogs.
Contrary to its name, the Altman White English Bulldog's short coat comes in all colors. The average height is around 18 inches (15-21) and average weight is 65 lbs (50-80).
