When Was the American Bulldog Breed Developed?
The American Bulldog breed was developed in the southern United States sometime in the 1700s. They were created by crossbreeding the English Bulldog, the American Pit Bull Terrier, and the Bullmastiff, and intended to be a massive, powerful, and ferocious breed. They were initially used as farming dogs to help herd larger animals and hunt potential predators.
There are two different versions of the breed: the Classic, which is larger than the Standard version, and the Standard version, which is slightly smaller and has a shorter muzzle.
The American Bulldog has yet to be recognized by the American Kennel Club.
