So Many Bulldogs to Choose From

So Many Bulldogs to Choose From

If you are considering the possibility of purchasing a Bulldog to add as a member of your family, you’ll be surprised just how many different kinds of Bulldogs there are. I thought I would try to give you a little bit of information on some of the different Bulldogs there are to pick from. We’ve already talked about the English Bulldog, American Bulldog and the American Bully so there is no need to go any further on those. Here are just a few of the over 40 varieties that you can choose from.

The English Bulldog

The English Bulldog

Since Charlie, my little rescue is an English Bulldog, I thought I would start off giving you a little information about them. More than likely it is the English or British Bulldog that comes to mind for most people when they think of Bulldogs. You know that dog that has a face only a mother could love or they’re so ugly they’re so cute? Well, that’s Charlie, the English Bulldog!

The American Bully

The American Bully

Right from the start it needs to be noted that the American Bully is NOT an American Pit Bull. Even though they nearly look the same, they are totally different American Breeds. The American Bully is a recently new Bulldog breed that first originated in the 1990’s. They were specifically bred to be an affectionate family dog. I know this for a fact since my son owns an American Bully and he has less aggressive tendencies than my little Charlie here and he doesn’t have a true aggressive bone in his body. In fact my son’s American Bully might be characterized as being somewhat of a goof ball.

As soon as you see an American Bulldog you will immediately notice they look nothing like the standard English Bulldog. It’s amazing just how different they look. They are stronger, more muscular and powerful. They also have longer legs are more agile and a lot faster. (Sorry Charlie but they are. You’d definitely be last in a race.)

It’s All About Natural Dogmanship

It’s All About Natural Dogmanship

Dogs, including Bulldogs are bonded so closely with humans, most of us seem to forget about their natural instincts. As their human counterparts we need to remember that Bulldogs and all dogs have the natural instinct for the need of structure, rules, boundaries and love in their lives. They want to make sure they know where they stand in their family pack. Whether you believe it or not, they want to know what the rules are and they need to have consistency in their lives, just like humans, especially human children.
