This is the Bulldog of today and to many this …

This is the Bulldog of today and to many this is the breed that hunted wild hogs, baited bears and bulls and fought dogs. Laughable as today it can barely walk half a mile and is coughing up a lung. To be fair the breed has changed to this more for show and money than anything else but who’s to blame and what can we do?

.

.

Let’s squarely put the blame on breeders and AKC for the loss of so much genetic diversity over the past decades, creating a breed that’s really kind of bred itself into a genetic corner.
Due to the bulldogs limited genes, breeders have very little to rebuild healthy phenotypes.

.

.

I feel that breeders should introduce new genes from outside such as some of these hybrid bulldogs ie: Olde, Victorians and Leavitt bred dogs that can boost the overall health of these animals. I doubt that the diehards will take this idea because the resulting dogs aren’t pedigreed and we’ll don’t look exactly like what today standard is wanting.

.

.

What are your thoughts about this?

The ABBB actually descends from the various types of Bulldogs that were brought by early settlers to the new world. Working Bulldogs were used to control cattle and pigs, hunt small and large game as well as guard the homestead. The bulldogs were bigger, taller and more athletic than the AKC version English Bulldog we see today.

.

.

In 1979, a group of Bulldog lovers set out to preserve what was believed to be a long lost breed. They gave them a name Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog — founded the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog Association, and wrote a breed standard. Eventually due to difference of opinions, they broke off and one family (The Lane family of Georgia) has taken credit in the creation of the breed.

.

.

ABBB have also been known by such names as Otto, Cowdog, Silver Dollar and Catahoula Bulldog.

.

.

A story of the Lane family will be posted soon.

When someone says BULLDOG, a dog that looks like this doesn’t initially come to mind but it’s funny how strong the Bulldog blood is that even with a different color coat and eyes, it’s still a Bulldog.

.

.

Can anyone name the breed?

Schnauzers of the world

#giantschnauzer
#standardschnauzer
#miniatureschnauzer

.

The three sizes of Schnauzers are completely separate breeds from each other with the Standard Schnauzer the original prototype, from which the Miniature Schnauzer and the Giant Schnauzer developing from.

.

Initially named Wire-Haired Pinscher, with the Schnauzer name adopted in 1879. The name “Schnauzer” comes from the German word, “schnauze,” which means snout, colloquially “mustache” or whiskered snout because of the dogs distinct beard.

.

The Standard Schnauzer began appearing in the States in the early 1900s coming with either German immigrant families, or with Americans who had traveled to Germany and wanted one.

#dobermanpinscher note the sloping back in today’s dogs versus the straight lines of the dogs yesteryear. This is important to note as many of today’s dogs suffer from back and hip problems, wonder where it’s coming from?

#dogsofthepast vs #dogsoftoday

.

#rottweiler a medium to large dog, purpose to herd livestock and pull carts. The dog of the past appears to be agile, better structured and with this could possibly work for hours versus the dog of today. Although I am a fan of today’s rottie, I’d love to go back and see these dogs in its original form, doing its purpose.
