The Olde English Bulldogge is a newer version of the former Old English Bulldog that is now extinct. David Leavitt created this breed in the 1970s through an English Bulldog, American Bulldog, Pit Bull, and a Bullmastiff. It was the intent of Mr. Leavitt to result in Olde English Bulldogges without a violent temperament or any health issues.


Olde English Bulldogges are good with apartment living as long as they're given enough exercise and receive plenty of mental stimulation. If they lonely or bored, they start destroying things. They enjoy chewing on things so be sure to keep a nice variety of safe chew toys on hand. These dogs thrive on agility, therapy work and playing with their family.


Olde English Bulldogges must be brushed occasionally and bathed when it's needed. They tend to slobber and drool so their faces need to be cleaned frequently. Health concerns with this breed are bloating and rare occurrences of hip dysplasia.


Olde English Bulldogges are a broad, muscular and compact dog breed. They have well-proportioned bodies and are of medium size. They're athletic, alert, powerful and stout.


Olde English Bulldogges have short, fine, and close fitting coats. They need to have occasional brushing and should only be bathed when absolutely necessary.


Olde English Bulldogges are stable, trustworthy and loyal. They're also friendly and docile but will do anything to protect their family or their property should a threat arise to either. This is an intensely sensitive breed and they have a very close bond with their family. These dogs get along with children, other dogs and various household pets that they've grown up with.


Obedience and socialization must be conducted at a very young age with Olde English Bulldogges. They're very intelligent and eager to please, but can also tend toward stubbornness at times. They won't respond to heavy handed or harsh training techniques. These dogs must be trained with patience, fairness, consistency and motivation.
