      About American Bulldogs

      The American Bulldog may be strong and muscular in stature, but don't let that fool you - these dogs are not hostile in the slightest. American Bulldogs are loyal, alert and self-confident, have strong protective instincts and are excellent with children.

      Did You Know?

      Because of their great strength, American Bulldogs are able to jump three feet straight into the air.

      Origin

      While this breed's origins aren't clear, it's widely believed that the American Bulldog was used by farmers and ranchers as a guard or working dog. After a near extinction during World War II, the breed was revived in the South by a small group of people interested in it.
