Olde English Bulldog

The Olde English Bulldogge should be alert, with a symmetrical, well-proportioned body. The dog should be cobby, but have the appearance of an athlete. The head is large and square in proportion to the body. Deeply sunken between the eyes, extending up the forehead and moderately wrinkled. Its jaw muscles are large.

Historians are fairly confident that the Old English Bulldog is derived from ancient war dogs, such as, the old Mastiff or Alaunt. Others believe that the true origin of the breed is not entirely clear. Depictions in old prints show that the variety was without doubt a small Mastiff, with a comparatively long head. The word 'Mastiff' was eventually dropped when describing these smaller Mastiffs, as the Mastiff proper was found too slow for bull-baiting.

David Leavitt developed the Olde English Bulldogge by crossing the English Bulldog with the Pit Bull, Bullmastiff, and the American Bulldog. He wanted to develop a breed that looked like the old Bulldogs, but had the improved temperament of today's breed without health problems.
