The Victorian Bulldog is a modern breed developed by crossbreeding the Bulldog and the Olde English Bulldogge. They were bred to be a healthier and lower maintenance version of the Bulldog. The Victorian Bulldog is medium in size and thick-boned with a muscular body, wide chest, and a large head that is proportionate in size. Their wide nostrils, broad muzzle, rose or button ears, and loose-hanging skin gives them the typical appearance of the Bulldog. Although they might look tough, they tend to have a gentle and friendly personality. With proper socialization, they often do well in a home with children and other pets. Even though the Victorian is a hybrid and has yet to be recognized by AKC, they’re often treated as a purebred and are recognized with ACA, ICA, and DRA registries.
