The American Bulldog is a descendant of the English Bulldog, imported to the American South to catch livestock and protect plantations, and used in the North to fight off feral pigs. The English Bulldog (or simply Bulldog) was bred in England in the 1500s for bull baiting, a popular gambling sport in which one or more dogs were matched up against a chained bull (or bear). These dogs were bred for sheer fighting capacity, and they were famed for latching onto their prey with an iron jaw which they refused to releasethey could even suffocate opponents this way. The American Bulldog is perhaps the most faithful strain to the English Bulldog as it was imported to America before the English Bulldog was crossed with the Pug during the Industrial Revolution. American Bulldogs are generally divided into two strains: the Classic American Bulldog, also known as the Johnson (after its breeder) or Bully, and the Standard American Bulldog, also known as the Scott (after its breeder) or Performance.
The American Bulldogs face resembles a Pit Bull, but the muzzle is boxier and it typically has uncropped ears and a bulkier head. Because they were originally bred to bring down bulls and other livestock, American Bulldogs have a strong aggressive instinct with other animals.
