TOP 10 Different Bulldog Breeds
1) English Bulldog
Lets start with the most popular Bulldog, the English Bulldog. They are ancestors of many other breeds you will see in this video. Sadly, over the time, they changed a lot and today they suffer a lot from brachycaphelic issues and cardiac related ilnesses. Their average lifespan is very short, only around 10 or 11 years. The English Bulldog is known as a loving and affectionate family companion that knows how to be stubborn.
2) Australian Bulldog
The Australian Bulldog is a young dog, developed in the 1998 by crossing the English Bulldog with some other breeds like the Boxer or Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The goal was to breed a more functional bulldog, that could easily adapt to the warmer Australian environment. The major focus was on the breathing issues, which is why the Australian Bulldog has has a less-squished muzzle. They also have longer legs and they are less wrinkled.
3) Campeiro Bulldog
This is a dog breed from Brazil. They are most likely descendants of today already extinct Old English Bulldogs, that were brought to the Brazil by European settlers. They were most often used to work on farms, but they were also used to herd the cattle in slaughterhouses.
4) Olde English Bulldogge
Not to be confused with the Old English Bulldog, this is a different breed. The Olde English Bulldogge development started in the early 1970s by David Leavitt, who wanted to create dog similar to the original bull baiting dogs, that will be healthy, athletic, just like the original dogs, but not as agressive. The breeds used in the breeding process were English Bulldogs, American Bulldogs and Bull Mastiffs. The breed was officially recognized by the United Kennel Club in 2014.
5) Continental Bulldog
The Continental Bulldogs was developed by an English Bulldog breeder in Switzerland to create healthies and more athletic version of the English Bulldog. As you can see from the photos, they truly look more muscular and athletic. The Continental Bulldog is always ready for a long hike, they do not suffer from breathing problems and, unlike the English Bulldog, they can give natural birhts.
6) French Bulldog
The smallest dog in this video is the famous French Bulldog, which is becoming more and more poopular every year. They were developed from already extinct English Toy Bulldogs that were brought to Normandy, France. They are known for being always in a good mood. They are very social and require close contact with their people. They are sometimes nicknamed as little clowns, which is perfectly describing their fun loving and affectioanate temperament.
7) American Bulldog
The American Bulldog is one of the largest of all Bulldogs with height up to 65 cm, which is 26 inch and weight up to 52 kg, which is 115 pounds. This is a stocky, muscular and strong looking breed and they are confident and quite lively. The American Bulldog was developed from the Old English Bulldog.
8) Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog
The Alapaha is thought to have existed in the southern United States for approximately 200 years and they were most likely developed from various types and crosses of Bulldogs brought by early settlers to this country. This is a catch dog, which means that they are bred to catch, hold and drive unruly cattle and hogs. But just like all the breed, they are most likely living the spoiled life of family companions today.
9) Serrano Bulldog
Very similar to the Campeiro Bulldog, this is another Brazilian breed. Those two Bulldogs are considered as similar, but separate breeds. They are descendants of various Bulldogs brought to South Brazil by European immigrants. Their ancestors are most likely Bullenbeisers and Old English Bulldogs.
10) Others (Ca de Bou, Valley Bulldog, Spanish Bulldog, Leavitt Bulldog, Bullenbeiser, Old English Bulldog, Toy Bulldog)
There are some other Bulldogs, that are worth mentioning. The Bullenbeiser, Old English Bulldog and Toy Bulldog were all mentioned in this video. All of them are already extinct, but they were used in the development of many breeds in this video.
Than there is the Leavitt Bulldog is the original breed developed by David Leavitt. It is a very similar, almost the same dog as the Olde English Bulldoge. David Leavitt named his own line of dogs as Leavitt Bulldogs to distinguish his line of Olde English Bulldogges from those of other breeders.
Than there is the Ca de Bou, which is sometimes named as the Mallorquin Bulldog, but i would say they are better fitting into the Mastiff category, although they have some bulldog ancestry. And i would also love to mention the Alano Espanol, which is also known as the Spanish Bulldog, but again, i would say that they are much more resembling the Mastiffs, rather than Bulldogs.
