There are several alternative bulldog breeds that exist today.  Most of these dogges are a result of a linebreeding scheme that involves Bullmastiffs, Pit Bull Terriers, American Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, and sometimes Bandogs.  David Leavitt first began working on his version of the bulldog in the 1970s because he was disenchanted by the breeding and breathing problems associated with the English Bulldog. Breeders today all have their own idea as to what the Bulldog of the 19th Century should look like.  For example, one breeder may have used more Pit Bull Terrier in their breeding scheme while another may have used more Bullmastiff or American Bulldog.  We feel that our bulldogges have the genetic makeup that we are looking for in this breed.  Our females are typically 60 to 75 pounds and 15 to 18" at the shoulders.  Our males range from 65 to 85 pounds and 16.5 to 19.5" at the shoulders.
