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.


I have a male american bulldog and weighs 70lbs how much more would he keep growing? and 23" tall? or how much more did your dog grow from 8 months to maturity?

Go rent the film "Digby" that will give you a good idea.


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 have seen so many people mistake American Bulldogs, for the very common English Bulldog. And you have no idea how much that pisses me off. So, who can tell me what an English Bulldog is? And who can tell me what an American Bulldog is?
I know people can tell the difference when they look at pictures. But… alot of times I have said something about an American Bulldog, and people were like "No, Bulldogs are the short stocky ones, with crooked and short legs." and that really got me going.

An English Bulldog is of medium size and smooth, short coat, with heavy, thick-set, low-swung body, massive short-faced head, wide shoulders and sturdy limbs. A mature male should be around 50lbs, and a female around 40lbs. This is what the AKC calls a "Standard Bulldog," as the AKC does not even recognize American Bulldogs.

An American Bulldog is a much larger dog, weighing in at around 60-80lbs for males, and 50-75lbs for females. They are tall, and look much like large Boxers, with short faces and a sturdy body.

There is another type, the French Bulldog, which smaller than the English (or Standard) Bulldog, weighing in at under 30lbs. This breed has a large, "square" head, and upward standing, triangular ears.

Again, the whole reason for the mixup, and for people assuming that when you say "Bulldog" you are speaking of an English Bulldog, is because the English Bulldog is considered the "Standard" for Bulldogs, and many people are confused as to what an American Bulldog actually is, because they are not recognized by the AKC.


My brother has a puppy and is supposed to be an american bulldog but it looks exactly like a boxer dog, even people who stroke her down the street always say something like she’s a lovely boxer or something. Is there any ways I can tell which breed she is.

Unfortunately, unless you know the breeder or the owner who had at least one of the parent’s you cannot 100% guarantee the breed of the dog. If you have the pedigree that will tell you the breed. I wouldn’t trust Continental Kennel Club papers, as they are those that are most easily falsified.

Plus, studies show most people can’t properly ID a dog. They tend to generalize off what they know. My boxer is commonly ID-ed as a Pit Bull, whereas my Pit Bull is commonly ID-ed as a bulldog (go figure as she’s blue and white).

There are DNA tests available, but these have not proven 100% effective determining the breed.


I don’t know shit about dogs but I love animals with all my heart, and fell in love with an American bulldog at the shelter, will he get along with my cat and any tips?
Btw don’t have him yet
This is the internet…. and the dogs section what better place to ask

With this being your first dog, I would definitely suggest getting a trainer involved in the process of introducing the dog to your household and to your cat. I would also ask the shelter if he is cat friendly. A Bulldog is a very gregarious creature and needs someone with a strong but gentle personality. It is generally not a dog I would suggest for a first time owner, especially with a cat, but I would say have a trainer come with you to the shelter and assess the dog for the situation he will be living in.


hey i have a american bulldog pup he is currently 14 wks he last got weighed at 11 weeks he weighed 10.9 killos.
At 7 weeks when i got him he weighed in at 5.9 kilos,
he will be getting weighed in a week when he goes for his last shot.
are these good weights? his father is 2 years old and weighs 47 kilos.

My Johnson type American bulldog pup is 9 weeks and 20 pounds(9.07kilos). Just by going from my boy I would say your boy is at an appropriate weight for a Johnson type. Your boys father is the same size as my boys father.


I just got a dog they told me he was a american bulldog and a bull terrier which I have no doubt about it he looks like both combined but I was just wondering if that means he is part of the pit bull family?

American bulldogs and bull terriers are both part of the bully breed family as is the american pit bull terrier however they are not the same breeds. More like distance cousins. Some of the breeds used to create the american pit bull terrier were also used to create the bull terrier as well as the american bulldog.


We got an american bulldog pup in december from a shelter and he was good wit cats there and we brought him home and he tried to hurt my cat. I love them both and don’t want to get rid of them. Any way I can socialize them. If so please help cuz my sisster, brother, and I are gonna try this tomorrow.

Almost 3 months and you’re just now trying to fix it?

You didn’t give us enough information to help. What is the dog doing? What is the cat doing? Are they separated? You were too vague for me to offer any legitimate help.


Soon i want to buy a good, strong scott type american bulldog within the UK and want suggestions to ensure my dog will be of a high standard, where its parents are pure bred and remain good working dogs
