American Bull Dog

American Bull Dogs

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:

    Genetics. If you want a taller one find a breeder whose stock is taller.

    They might have been a different breed. Why does it matter what kind of height they are anyway they are all different and that is what matters. They all have different dogs.

  4. owned by APBT<3 Said,

    well…i have only seen tall american bulldogs. Different breeders breed different traits into their dogs,(johnson & scotts) but i have never seen a stubby legged American bulldog. Maybe your thinking of English bulldogs. I don’t know too much about the breed but i have only seen larger ones, and they are a larger breed.
    Do some research, because i think the short stubby legged Am. bulldogs your talking about are the English bulldogs(which i think are cute) :)
    But i did post some links down below, so you can see for yourself.

    They’re lineage and breeding standards are slack, to say the least. Yeah, they can be ugly too.
