American Bull Dog

American Bull Dogs

I own a red nose pit bull and she is a sweetheart, although I am having some troubles finding an apartment that will accept the pit bull breed here in st pete florida, Although I found that most people dont know the difference between the two breeds and I am getting more apartments saying they will accept the american bull. Is there really that big of a difference?

An American Pit Bull Terrier (also referred to as a ‘pit bull’ or APBT) is a much smaller breed of dog ranging from 25-60# depending on which breeder the dog comes from.

The American Bulldog, which I believe is what you’re referring to, is a larger breed, typically, than the APBT, but is just as agile and shares the same people adoring temperment. Some of them (Johnson’s ABs) can pass for APBTs, but not always.

Apartments will accept them because they’re typically (if a dog has human aggressive tendencies) be labeled as a pit bull-type dog – especially in issues such as breed specific legislation (BSL).

Both dogs are registerable with the UKC and ARBA.

If you’re terribly concerned and want to lie (which I honestly do not suggest doing since it can lead to eviction), I would suggest calling the dog a mix breed of some variety – likely boxer and Vizsla or something along those lines.

i have eight 7 week old american bulldog puppies for sale, they really are top quality pups, we thouhgt that only 8 or 9 would arrive but she gave birth to 16, any ideas on the best way to sell them, or were to sell them. THANKS.

You’ll want to get the word out somehow, either by setting up a web-site or advertising. However, you’ll want to have an application process in place as you don’t want to sell your puppies to just anyone who answers an ad.

Be prepared to interview those who are interested. Be sure that they are educated on the breed (not for first time dog owners). If possible, visit their home to see the environment. I always call short notice to see if I can stop by, so they’ll not be prepared. I also deliver the puppies if possible, so I can see how it interacts in it’s new home.

It’s sad that you waited until they were 7 weeks old to begin planning, but you’ll want to temperament test the pups to ensure you match the right pup with the right owner. I have people who are disappointed that they don’t get to pick out their puppy, but I’d rather they have a dog that will fit in with their lifestyle rather than their decor.

The important thing is that you ensure that the puppies go to appropriate homes, not how you find these homes. You’ll want to research the new owners thoroughly.

So my birthday is tomorrow and i want to get me a dog, my friend is selling pure american bull dog puppies for $500 but since she wants to get rid of them shell give it to me for $450!!
with his shot but no papers?
is that a reasonable price?

A well bred American Bulldog usually sells for $800-1200. Your friend is selling poorly bred, unpapered dogs that might as well be mongrels. No reputable breeder will sell a dog to someone who is getting it on impulse. Nor do they push to get rid of their pups. Reputable breeders take responsibility for their actions and don’t try to pawn off their puppies on whoever walks by.

American Bulldogs are BIG, strong, headstrong dogs who need a firm owner. They don’t get along with dogs, cats, or other small animals and if poorly bred then they have a high tendency to snap.

Do you mean "dying?" I’m so sorry for your loss. Be sure to treat the house and yard since the parvo remains active for six months..

i am planning on getting an american bull dog next week but i do not want to get anything unsafe for my children. bull dogs and pitts kinda look the same so i just want to know what is the difference

Find a reputable breeder of American Bulldogs in/near your area. Not only will can you guarantee that you’ll get the correct breed, you’ll also know you’re not getting the dog from an irresponsible breeder who may be breeding dogs of ill-health or temperament.

Also please note that an American Bulldog is no more or less "safe" around children than an American Pitbull Terrier. Both are dogs that can be a wonderful family pets if trained properly.

I have a Brown and white male American Bull Dog. I would like to mate him with a Female American Bull Dog. He is 11 mo old, and ready to mate. How do I get his picture notice by other American Bull Dog Breeders?

Please de sex your pet. Do you know how many of these dogs are on death row as we speak?

Why do that? You cannot guarantee that the puppies will go to loving homes, you cannot guarantee they will not be used as bait dogs, or fighting dogs!

Just neuter him, and enjoy your pet! Leave breeding to the experts!

Like half of them are short and have stubby legs but others are tall with more muscular legs? Why is this? I was thinking about getting a pitbull or an american bulldog but I want the tall american bulldog not the short ugly ones

After WWII, the original bulldog breed was nearly extinct in America. A man named John Johnson took it upon himself to revive the breed with the help of breeders such as Alan Scott. After some time passed, it became apparent that Johnson and Scott had different visions for the breed, so two types were developed. (A few sub-types have also developed, but most people split American Bulldogs into the Johnson type, the Scott type, or a hybrid of the two.)

These are American Bulldogs of the Johnson type:

They resemble English Bulldogs, as you can see, which is because Johnson utilized the English Bulldog when he recreated the breed. Johnson type American Bulldogs are wider, larger, stouter and have more typical Bulldog faces.

These are American Bulldogs of the Scott type:

They look lighter and leaner, and their heads more resemble those of American Pit Bull Terriers.

American Bulldogs aren’t recognized by the American Kennel Club, so there is no single, strict set of standards that they should follow.

If you want a certain type of American Bulldog, then you should simply do your homework on the breeder of your choice before you purchase. I mean, you wouldn’t rush in and buy a puppy without carefully examining both parents, right? So check out the puppy’s lineage, and see if they’re the type of American Bulldog you want. Here are some questions you ought to ask the breeder before buying:

I am a first time puppy owner and want to know if this should worry me or is it normal

Royal…

First off…please tell me you mis-wrote his age…please tell me you meant two-MONTH old…not two-WEEK old! That’s a huge difference, and if we’re talking about a two-WEEK old puppy, he needs to be taken right back to his mother and litter mates IMMEDIATELY and the breeder must get him treated properly for worms. You should not separate a two-WEEK old puppy from its mother or litter mates until he is at least two-MONTHS old except in the case of an absolute emergency! As a new puppy owner I will tell you candidly that you are NOT equipped or prepared to do what is necessary for this young of a puppy to survive!

IF, however, you are talking about a two-MONTH old puppy…

As a first-time puppy owner, it’s good to know how to start off on the best foot. Anytime you welcome a new puppy or dog into your home, one of the first things you need to be sure to do is to have him examined by your vet. This gives you and your vet an idea of his overall general health, and provides him with immediate care if an issue of concern is recognized. Your vet will check his eyes, ears, mouth/teeth/gums, heart, lungs, abdomen, joints, anal glands, skin/coat, and will often test for parasites or worms (a fecal test) and may also want to include a blood test. It also gets you started on critical puppy boosters that will help to build his little immune system to fight off very common, very contagious and what can be very deadly diseases.

With what you are describing, your little guy has some issues that definitely need to be attended to by a vet. Yellow poop may or may not be a sign of a digestive tract issue…or could simply have something to do with the diet this puppy has been on. However, the "white seed" looking things you described sounds like he has worms. They often will look like grains of white rice and are excreted larvae from worms in his tummy. This is not a life-threatening issue when treated, and treatment is very common.

I suggest you make that initial appointment for your puppy as soon as tomorrow to have him thoroughly checked out and started on a de-wormer…and his puppy boosters (usually 3 sets of shots 3 weeks apart beginning when the puppy is about 6 to 8 weeks old), and a single rabies shot when he is about 4 months old.

With those things taken care of…or in the process of being taken care of, all will be just fine. All too often puppies are not properly treated for these things by the person selling them or giving them away, and that’s why their lives get so much better when a loving owner finds them and starts off on the right foot with them.

Now you know what that right foot is.

Good luck!
