The American Bulldog’s primary job was to work as hog and cattle catching dogs for hunting and as guard dogs for personal property. They are a very active breed with a need for daily exercise and lots of fresh air.
The breed is agile enough to catch or prey livestock despite their small stature. Don’t let their vertically challenged frames fool you, they are quite robust, sturdy and determined!
They are heavy shedders despite being a short haired breed. Their hair can easily come off on clothing or furniture. This is no big issue considering all the deshedding tools available to owners.
Commonly seen in movies, advertisements and tv. Bulldogs were the 5th most popular pet dog in 2013. Their sweet natured and loving personalities make them a great companion and family dog.
