Although a larger breed, the American Bulldog is a very gentle and loving breed that loves children.
The American bulldog and the bandog are sometimes confused. The bandog began as a cross between mastiff breeds and American pit bull terriers. Bandogs, a developing guardian breed, are usually larger than even the Johnson American bulldog. Males range from 25 to 29 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 100 and 140 pounds. Bandogs also differ from the American bulldog due to their color. Unlike either types of American bulldog, the bandog can be solid black, solid blue or have red (buckskin or fawn) coats with black masks. Even though the American bulldog is not a bandog, the breed is sometimes used in bandog breeding programs.
The Johnson American bulldog, also called the classic American bulldog, is the larger of the two American bulldog types. They stand about 23 to 27 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 90 and 120 pounds. Johnson dogs have heavier bones, wider chests and boxier heads more closely resembling the English bulldog due to a cross with that breed. This American bulldog type must have a distinctly undershot bite, although the lower teeth must never show when the dog’s mouth is closed. Both types of American bulldog can have cropped or natural ears; however, natural ears are preferred for both.

The American Bulldog is an assertive medium-large breed originating from the American Southeast. Descended from working catchdogs (wild and rough cattle and wild boar), the modern American Bulldog has evolved into America’s #1 family & property protection dog. American Bulldogs are powerful, strong willed dogs, but with basic obedience training and early socialization they make good canine citizens.
These qualities should be prerequisites for candidates of all modern breeding programs. A well bred dog should be a stable Bulldog that reacts to perceived threats, not a "chain-brain" type of dog. The gameness and determination of a well-bred American Bulldog will come into play if his family is ever threatened.
The American Bulldog is all the dog anyone could ever want, and too much dog for some. He does require early socialization and some basic obedience training. Good examples of American Bulldogs are equally at home catching wild boar and guarding the farm & livestock in a rural setting as they are in protecting family and property in today's crime infested suburban areas and inner cities.
Even though not one out of a hundred of today's American Bulldogs get the opportunity to perform traditional catch-work with cattle or wild boar, the traits this breed inherited from it's gladiator ancestors of bravery, gameness, assertiveness, intelligence, mental stability, pain tolerance, and natural protectiveness, can relate to adverse situations and conditions that can and do happen in today's crime infested cities, suburbs and even rural areas. One of those traits that separate the American Bulldog from other so called protection breeds is its ability to act cool and calm in the heat of battle. The American Bulldog is not afraid to take charge in situations where his family or his families property are endangered.
Responsible ownership of American Bulldogs is a must. Like a young human, a young American Bulldog must be taught what is right and what is wrong in order to live in society. Early socialization and basic obedience training is the key to responsibly owning this breed.
