Olde English Bulldogge

About the Breed

The Olde English Bulldogge is a breed of dog that is a cross between the English Bulldog and the American Bulldog. It has grown in popularity since its inception in the 1970s due to its strong muscular build, intelligence, and loyalty. This breed makes an excellent pet for families who want a loyal companion who can provide protection and entertainment. History The Olde English Bulldogge was developed by David Leavitt as a healthier version of the English Bulldog. He crossed various strains of Bulldogs with American Bulldogs to create this unique new breed in 1971. His goal was to improve upon the health and temperament of the English Bulldog while still maintaining its impressive physical characteristics. Over time, this new breed became known for being energetic, loyal, and protective without suffering from some of the health problems that often plague purebred Bulldogs. Temperament The Olde English Bulldogge is an intelligent, active dog that loves spending time with its family. They are extremely loyal and affectionate with their owners, making them great family pets for households with children or other pets. They are also naturally protective, making them excellent guard dogs for their owners homes and property. While they can be wary of strangers at first, they will quickly warm up if properly introduced and socialized early in life. Olde English Bulldogges have high energy levels and require regular exercise to stay healthy both physically and mentally. Taking them on long walks or playing fetch are great ways to keep them mentally stimulated while also providing much-needed exercise every day. Weight & Health Checks An adult Olde English Bulldogge should weigh between 50-75 pounds depending on gender - males tend to be larger than females - but should never exceed 75 pounds so as not to put too much strain on their bodies joints or internal organs due to their stocky build. It is important for owners to keep track of their dog's weight regularly through regular vet visits or at home weigh-ins. Due to their brachycephalic muzzle shape, these breeds may require additional attention when it comes to dental health checks, ear cleaning, eye care (such as eyelid taping), skin care (such as dry baths), joint supplements, vaccinations, heartworm prevention medication, flea/tick control treatment, spay/neutering procedures etc. The Olde English Bulldogge is an impressive breed that has become increasingly popular over the years due its intelligence, loyalty, protectiveness without sacrificing good physical health like some other purebred bulldogs may suffer from. The ideal owner for this breed would be someone who has experience handling large active dogs who is willing commit themselves daily walks/exercise sessions plus regular vet checks for preventative care. With these considerations taken into account any potential owner can look forward having a loving companion by their side for many years come.
