Breeds You Should Know: Bully Breeds

11 / 16

Breeders first developed the original Olde Bulldogge in the 17th and 18th centuries, but those dogs tended to have significant breeding and breathing problems. David Leavitt created the modern version of this bully breed -- a mix of English bulldog, bullmastiff, pit bull and American bulldog traits -- to circumvent these issues. Reintroduced in 1971 in Pennsylvania, the present-day Olde English Bulldogge is outgoing and friendly in nature and also enjoys playing the role of security guard. This breed is strong and athletic and responds very well to obedience training, thanks in part to an inherent loyalty to its owner.
