American Bulldog and American Bulldog Puppy

American Bulldog and American Bulldog Puppy

The American Bulldog and American Bulldog Puppy, unlike their English counterparts, are swifter and more agile. This is mainly due to their long legs and raised bodies, which do not sit as close to the ground. However, the American Bulldog, like the English Bulldog, is also stocky, weighing between 60 and 120 pounds. They have a more muscular build with long, thick, strong, and straight front legs and thick, broad, well-toned, and muscled hindquarters. American bulldogs also have a similar facial structure to the English bulldog, with a large head, strong jaw, and sharp bite.

Despite the American Bulldog’s intimidating appearance, American Bulldogs are confident, social animals who love people and children, and are devoted and loyal pets to their owners. American Bulldogs were originally bred for hunting and farm work, making these strong, obedient, agile, and smart animals great helpers when it comes to physical work.

Both American Bulldog puppies and adult American Bulldogs love to play and are active animals, most happy when they are challenged with vigorous exercise. In fact, possibly due to their love of exercise, the American Bulldog has a longer lifespan of 10 to 16 years than its English and French counterparts. American Bulldog puppies are consistently rated as one of the top-preferred dogs for both their breeding and their personalities.

American Bulldog and American Bulldog Puppy can be a wonderful and loving companions to any household.

  • Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL or Batten’s disease)
  • Kidney and thyroid diseases
  • Orthopedic conditions, of which the most notable are hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, ACL injuries, and medial patella luxation (MPL).
