Bull Dogs

Bulldogs are a type of dog that were traditionally developed by farmers to control and subdue bulls and eventually because of their tenacity and agility used for the blood sports of baiting and dog fighting. Today Bull Dogs (commonly called Bullies) are kept for other purposes, including companion dogs, guard dogs and catch dogs. Bulldogs are typically stocky, powerful, square-built animals with large, strong, brachycephalic-type muzzles. It is believed bulldogs were developed during the 16th century Elizabethan era from the larger mastiffs, as smaller, more compact dogs were better suited for controlling cattle and for baiting.

For the purpose of keeping this group focused on the Bullies we will specify that if the dog has "bull" in its breed name it falls into this category and is open to be discussed and explored on this group.

  • I noticed American Staffordshire Terrier made the list even though bull us not in the name. Rightfully so, it should be included. Genetically it is the same dog as an American Pit Bull Terrier. But AKC will not register it if you call it a pit bull. UKC on the other hand will register it as a pit bull or an American Staffordshire Terrier. The AKC doesn't want to be associated with the pit bull because of its dog fighting past. That politically motivated excuse is lame. Considering that they register bulldogs that once were used for bull baiting.  They register Akita which were used for dog fighting.

    • Villanos de las encartaciones at work, the sire of the current Alanos in Spain, and remains of the spanish bulldogs, that means, the Villanos were the cross of old "perros de presa" with swifter shepherd dogs, and dogs of the Trucios Village.

      The breed, also known as British Bulldogs, are so inbred their health seriously suffers, with experts now claiming that it is not a very happy life for the animals. The research claims that there is not enough genetic stock within British Bulldogs to healthily maintain the species, which has prompted researchers to state that they should be cross-bred to improve their lifestyle.
