Bulldog Info

Site MeterOlde English Bulldogge Information


The bulldog of old has a very wide and diverse history that dates back to ancient molosser breeds with a very interesting history of evolution. We will be sharing lots of information about bulldog history and the recreation of a legend. So check back often for new info on The Olde Bulldogge. If you haven’t already, take a look at the battles between the Philo Kuon breeders who worked to preserve the bull baiters, and the sour mug breeders who lead to the production of today’s English Bulldog. Here is one sentence I particularly enjoy from this historic writing; “The Philo-Kuon breeders examined the third type, the sour mug, and declared it an abomination against nature and didn’t take the sour mug breeder’s threats seriously, threats to take over the English Bulldog national club and change the standard to favor the freakish sour mug”. The rest of this story and lots more can be found in the links on this page.

Olde English Bulldogge
Evolution Bulldogges made this page and its links to provide you with more olde english bulldogge information and historic bulldog information in order to help you make more informed decisions about our breed.  We feel that education and information about the Olde English Bulldogge and Bulldog history will help fight the battle of ignorance and fear towards bulldog breeds as a whole including american pit bull terriers.  The pit bull is a wonderful breed that has been unfairly vilified by the animal rights fueled media propaganda.  Sharing bulldog information, especially historic bulldog information will lead to a better understanding or our wonderful bully breeds, and help dry up the cloud of deceit casting a heavy shadow on the breeds we love so much.  Olde English Bulldogge information can be found all over the web, and we do not claim to be the foremost authority on the topic, we just enjoy sharing bulldog information with our fellow bully lovers, and feel we have a nice collection of informative reading materials and links.  Our Olde English Bulldogge information pages include the three topics of breeding, health, and history.  We hope you enjoy these Old English Bulldog information pages as much as we enjoyed learning the material the very first time!

  3. Hi,
    My name is Pierre.
    Im from Sweden and i have an alternative oeb that have european champion lines.
    I see that in Sweden we are at risk for having a problem with inbreeding, pretty much all off the studs and dames are from the same kennels………
    My early experiense have been more with pitbulls but now since my boy blue change my world i am “blessed” with the bulldog love.
    I first seen your video of static on youtube when you are downtown Lawrence or something like that.
    He is one amasing dog.both size/looks and from what i can see temper wise also.
    Since getting to love this breed im thinking off breeding my boy to start a new line here in sweden so that i can help keep the breed healthy.
    your dogs and your thoughts about the breed makes me happy.
    I just have one concern with your program. In a part off a text you mentioned inlinebreeding. if i have the info correct that meens that you are breeding sibblings or mother/child…….
    please correct me if im wrong. you know
    more about this then me.
    please get back to me .
    Best regards

    • Hi Pierre,
      Thanks for the kind words. I do linebreed and occasionally inbreed my dogs. Linebreeding or inbreeding itself is neither a positive nor a negative thing, just a tool that a breeder has which he can utilize to produce better or worse. Keep in mind that every single established breed of animal on this planet was established by extensive linebreeding and inbreeding to set breedtype. The reason that any breed looks or acts differently from any other breed is the result of extensive inbreeding until type has been locked in by limiting the number of genetic variations within that breed. If you look at the Olde Bulldogge as a breed it will take you little time to see that the entire breed is a washed out messy soup of slop with such huge variation of type it is difficult to tell that a lineup of 10 Oldes would be classified as the same breed. The reason for this is that the original Olde – the Leavitt bulldog – was linebred for many generations, however the others who have contributed to the genepool following David Leavitt’s work have not been so diligent. So, if anyone is to set type in their own breeding program with Oldes they must linebreed and inbreed in order to limit variation on their yard.
      Genetically what happens when you outcross (breed unrelated animals together) the genetics are diluted since unrelated animals are not likely to share many of the same genes. Linebreeding maintains the genetic variance, and inbreeding concentrates genetic similarity. So basically if you inbreed on poor specimens you will concentrate the poor qualities of the parents and produce even poorer quality offspring. If you inbreed on great genetics, you concentrate the greatness that is present. This is why it is so important to me to health and temperament test ALL of my breeding stock prior to deciding to use each individual on my yard. I must breed exceptional specimens to produce more greatness. Dogs who do not test well, and show poor genetics are never used in my breeding program. That is the big difference between Evolution Bulldogges and other lessor breeders in the world. I do extensive testing and selectively breed only the finest specimens to evolve my kennel generation after generation.

  4. Does selecting a runt increase the risk of having poor health and possibly shorter life span?

    • There can be many reasons for a pup to be smaller, but not all of them are because there is an issue. It is certainly more common for runts to have issues, which is why if I ever offer a runt up for sale it is thoroughly checked by a vet beforehand to make sure there are no health concerns. Every Evolution Bulldogge pup comes with a lifetime health guarantee which can be found on my puppies page.

  5. I’m just wondering why Fat Girl doesn’t have a page like all of the other dogs. Prettiest girl on the block (I think) and only one picture with no info. Brian, you got a problem with curvy gals? LOL

    • LOL! Not at all. Fat Girl has just not gotten a good photoshoot yet that I feel represents the Bulldogge that she is very well in pictures. The picture of Fat Girl that is listed I feel represents her well, and I dont have many pictures of her yet.

  6. Hi, Im fascinated with the Olde Bulldogge breed. I had little or no knowledge that this type of breed even existed. I’ve trained in Schutzhund with Rottweilers and was wondering if they are capable of performing in that level of competition?

    • Hi Jonathon, Schutzhund was designed as a test for the GSD. It is not geared towards the mental and physical aptitudes of other, non-herding breeds. A Bulldogge that excels at Schutzhund would not be a very typey bulldogge in mind or body. Testing an Olde English Bulldogge in Schutzhund would be much like testing a Rottweiler as a gun dog to retrieve ducks from water. My bulldogges are created to have explosive power, so they do incredibly well in hardest hitting and weight pull, as well as being protective family companions. There are very few dogs in the world that do well in Schutzhund which can also be an excellent family pet. Can an Evolution Bulldogge be trained to compete in Schutzhund? Sure, since my dogs are highly intelligent and trainable, but will never do as well as a breed created for that type of work.

  7. Your correct with regards to GSD geared for Schutzhund. It was difficult for me to obtain a title for my Rotti, although I have seen different breeds other than GSD that actually excelled in Schutzhund. Would you consider your Bulldogge trainable in obedience as in a BH (Begleithund) in Schutzhund which is essentially a temperament test for which any breed is welcome to complete?
