The American Bulldog is higher on the leg, more agile and swifter than its English counterpart. They are powerful, very muscular, athletic, sturdy dogs with a large, head and jaws.
This breed is very strong, well boned, but agile and light on the feet. The chest is wide and the muscular neck tapers from shoulders to head, the neck may have a slight dewlap. The head is square and broad with muscular cheeks and the strong muzzle is shaped like a box. Uncropped ears are preferred in the American Bulldog Breeders Association Standard. Any eye color is permitted, but black eye rims are preferred on white dogs.
The nose is black or grizzle, the lips should be loose. The short, harsh coat comes in combinations of solid or varying degrees of white, all shades of brindle, red, tan or brown. The American Bulldog should be evaluated as a working dog, the exaggerations or faults should be penalized in proportion to how much they interfere with the dog’s ability to work.
American Bulldogs should not be excessively timid, shy or aggressive towards man and preferably not overly aggressive with other dogs either.
An American Bulldog should never be confused with uniquely different breeds such as the American Staffordshire Terrier or the American Pit Bull Terrier. The breed is brave and determined, but not hostile. He/she is alert and self-confident, and genuinely loves children. The American Bulldog is known for her/his acts of heroism towards the master. They have fought wild dogs, bulls and even fire.
The coat is short, harsh, close, and stiff to the touch and easy to groom. Comb and brush with a firm bristle brush, and bathe only when necessary. The American Bulldog is an average shedder.
The American Bulldog tends to be strong, physically active, and often healthy but they can be prone to hip dysplasia. To help prevent the chance of hip dysplasia developing make sure your dog is on a healthy, well proportioned diet, and avoid excessive running and jumping while still a puppy as this can be hard on the developing joints. To minimize the risk of your American Bulldog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable American Bulldog breeder.
The American Bulldog is relatively inactive indoors if it is sufficiently exercised. This breed will do okay in an apartment but will do best with at least an average-sized yard. Without an hour or two of exercise the American Bulldog can become bored and destruction in the home.
