Recommended Posts

ABNA BREED STANDARD

Revised 2006

The American Bulldog is an athletic, temperamentally sound, medium to large size dog that possesses great strength, agility and confidence. The expression should reflect intelligence and alertness. The sturdy, powerful, yet compact frame is characteristically stockier and heavier boned in the males and more refined in the females. Some aloofness with strangers and assertiveness with other dogs is accepted.

**Note: The American Bulldog National Alliance judges are specifically charged with the responsibility of evaluating the temperamental stability as well as structural conformation on all dogs.

Any dog demonstrating shy or timid behavior, or that is out of control, presenting a danger to other dogs or people, will be dismissed from the ring at the judges discretion.

In officially recognizing two distinctive types of American Bulldogs, Standard and Bully, the ABNA requires that they be judged separately.

Size:

Males should range from 22-26 inches at the withers.

Females should range from 21-25 inches at the withers.

Standard: A leaner, more athletic dog in appearance.

Bully: A thicker, more powerful dog in appearance.

Weight should be in proportion to height in both types.

The dog should be well conditioned, not overweight or underweight.

One inch over or under the standard is a minor fault for both types.

Anything over one inch is a major fault for both types.

Color:

Solid white, white with varying degrees of brindle, brown, red, and tan is acceptable. Solid brindle, brown, red, or tan with no visible white is a cosmetic fault.

Solid black, blue, black and tan, tri color, and any degree of merle is a disqualification.

A full black mask is a major fault.

*Tri color is white with black and tan patches.

**Merle is a dilution of overall body color (black or red) with splotches of darker color giving the effect of "merling", or"marbling", not to be confused wit brindle, that gives the effect of "striping".

Coat:

Short, less than one inch in length, varying from soft to stiff.

Long, feathering, or fuzzy coats are a disqualification.

Head:

The head should be relatively large and broad in proportion to the size of the dog.

It should be flat on top giving a squared appearance.

There is a defined furrow between the eyes with a distinct, deep stop.

The head is well muscled throughout with prominent cheeks.

An excessively narrow head is a major fault in both types.

Standard: Generally box to wedge shaped in appearance, with a slightly shallower stop and less wrinkles.

Bully: Generally box to round shaped in appearance, with a more definitive stop and more wrinkles.

Eyes:

The eyes should be round or almond in shape, medium size, and wide set.

Dark brown is preferred, other colors are accepted, but are a cosmetic fault.

Black eye rim pigment is preferred, other colors are accepted, but are a cosmetic fault.

Crossed and/or nonsymmetrical eyes are a major fault.

Visible haw is a fault based on the severity.

Muzzle:

The muzzle should be relatively broad and square.

The jaws are well muscled, displaying great strength.

Lips are full, but not pendulous.

Black pigment on the lips is preferred, other colors are accepted, but are a cosmetic fault.

An excessively narrow muzzle is a major fault in both types.

Wry jaw is a disqualification in both types.

Standard: Muzzle should be 30% to 40% of the overall length of the head.

Bully: Muzzle should be 25% to 35% of the overall length of the head.

A muzzle longer or shorter than the standard is a minor fault.

Any breathing problems displayed in the ring will be considered a disqualification.

The dog may be dismissed from the ring at the judges discretion for the welfare of the dog.

Teeth:

The teeth should number 42 and be large in size.

Small and/or crooked teeth are a minor fault.

Missing teeth are a structural fault and will be penalized.

Working dogs will not be penalized for broken teeth.

Should medical removal of teeth be needed, documentation from a veterinarian is required.

Bite:

Standard: Reverse scissors is preferred.

A scissor bite or moderate underbite, up to 1/4 inch is acceptable.

Even bite is not preferred.

Bully: Undershot up to 1/4 inch is preferred.

1/8 to 1/2 Undershot is acceptable.

Even bite is a major fault.

Scissor bite is a disqualification.

Both Types: Anything over the accepted standard is a structural fault, and will be penalized based on the severity.

Teeth should not be visible when the mouth is closed.

Nose:

Black is the preferred color, with shades of red or brown being acceptable.

A lack of pigment is a cosmetic fault.

Ears:

The ears should be medium in size and may be either forward flap or rose, with no preference.

Cropped ears are a cosmetic fault, due to the fact that they have been cosmetically altered and can not be judged in their natural state.

**In countries where it is illegal to crop the ears, owners must show a certification from a veterinarian for dogs that have been altered.

Neck:

The neck should be medium in length, muscular, slightly arched, and taper from shoulders to head.

Shoulders:

The shoulders should be well muscled with good definition and wide sloping blades giving the appearance of great strength.

Chest:

The chest should be deep and moderately wide giving the appearance of power and athletic ability. It should be well balanced, not excessively narrow or wide.

Body:

The body should be well balanced and compact, while powerful and athletic in appearance.

There should be a good spring of the ribs and the loin moderately tucked.

The body should not be excessively long.

Back:

The back should be broad, showing great strength, with a slight roach over the loins.

The back should not be narrow or swayed.

Standard: Straighter more level topline.

Bully: Straighter more level topline is preferred, appearance of being slightly higher in the rear is acceptable.

Legs:

Front:

The front legs should be straight with moderate to heavy bone.

Pasterns should be strong and upright.

Weak pasterns are a major fault.

Elbows that are bowed or twisted are a fault from minor to a disqualification, based on severity.

Rear:

The rear legs should be well muscled, moderately angulated and parallel.

Pasterns should be strong and upright.

Weak pasterns are a major fault.

Cowhocked is a fault from minor to a disqualification, based on the severity.

Hindquarters:

The hindquarters should not be as wide as the shoulders, but should be well balanced, thick and muscular.

Tail:

The tail is set low, thick at the base, tapering to a point.

The tail should reach the hocks in a relaxed position.

Tails above or below the hocks are a minor fault.

Tails that are kinked, screw, or end in a complete circle are a minor fault.

Docked tails are a minor fault due to the fact that the tail has been cosmetically altered and can not be judged in it's natural state.

** In countries where it is illegal to dock tails, owners must show a certification from a veterinarian for dogs that have been altered.

Feet:

The feet should be of moderate size.

The toes should be well arched and close together.

Crooked toes are a minor fault.

Splayed feet are a fault from minor to major, based on the severity.

Gait:

The American Bulldog should move smoothly with speed, power, and agility.

There should be no rolling or clumsiness.

The topline should remain level as the front legs are reaching, and the rear legs propel the dog forward.

As speed increases the feet move towards the center of the body for balance.

Dogs should not paddle, pace, or have a short stilted stride.

Front and/or rear legs crossing is a major fault.

Any dog showing lameness will be dismissed from the ring for the welfare of the dog.

* Dogs with disqualifying faults will not be dismissed from the ring, but will not be considered for placement.

** Note: Males without two testicles, dogs that are deaf, and dogs that have been spayed or neutered are not allowed to compete in the conformation ring.

Females in heat are not to be shown in the conformation classes, and are not allowed in the proximity thereof.

I jos jedan ,od Ace Ercegovca,takodje dugogdisnji poznanik,slicna prica.Oba psa su hibridi ali oba psa se veoma lako zaplase.Ja stvarno ne znam sto je to tako u ova dva slucaja ali znam da imaju normalan odgoj i super posvecenost.

Ima takvih slucajeva i oni nisu retki , dosta sam buldoga sa takvim ponasanjem sretao , ovde taj problem obicno resavaju dresurom i obukom . Kako se jedan moj poznanik inace dugogodisnji odgajivac buldoga izrazio na tu temu "pas mora da srusi taj zid koji stoji izmedju njega i coveka" .Obicno dobra obuka resava taj problem.

Larry Hadden prica o WEB:

Q. Do you remember any specific events about a WEB that stands out in your mind?

There's several of them really. All with Spike. He wouldn't ever let anyone out of their car. He used to stand by their door looking at them. He could look right through you. And people knew he meant business. He would hold people hostage in their car. Another story about Spike was how he used to ride on top of my tool box on back of my truck. He stood up on top of that thing wherever I went. When I got out, he laid down on it and nobody, and I mean nobody got even close to that truck. He didn't bark at them, just stared them down, sometimes growling low. Boy he sure could give someone a look. One other time, I got up one morning and he was beat up. A pack of dogs had come on the place during the night and he fought them off right by himself. He was sore for a few days, but it didn't slow him up a bit. He kept right on being Spike. He sure was something. I still miss that dog. Won't ever be another like him. I've had one of his sons, Buddy, and now have Buddy's son. But none of them are quite like Spike. He was one of a kind. One of those you always remember.

JDJ prica o Svojoj liniji prije ubacivanja engleskog bulldoga:

JDJ: "Well, in the olden times there wasn't real good fences, when any of your livestock would get out you needed a dog that was powerful enough and had the grit to catch. I know dad would always tell me a story of when he was a boy, that his mother was out there in their field, she was going to get some sweet potatoes, she was out there digging them and didn't see that their big Jersey bull had gotten out and was heading straight for her. Their bulldog saw it and my dad saw it and headed in the house to fetch his gun, when he came out with his gun he saw his dog had met the bull before it got to his mother, and was fighting him good and finally whipped that bull away from her. Throwing a big bull that was one thing they were needed for, they also needed them for protection of the family and home. They also caught wild hogs with them there where a lot of wild hogs back then, that's were they got lots of their meat was from wild hogs. I also remember a story he told me about a female bulldog they had once and she had puppies there one time, she would always go to the fields where they worked. Well one day they were working and she picked up and started for home, they just thought she was going home to check on her puppies, but there was a boy in the house stealing corn meal, of course nobody had much to steal back then. Well when they came home they found corn meal and blood all over the kitchen, she had ate that boy up real bad. He made it home and his daddy came down and told my granddaddy about it, he explained to him what happened. Granddaddy said when the boy gets healed send him back. He said "No sir, he won't be back here at all. None of us will. It took that boy two weeks before he could get out of bed. That was what the bulldog was used for, such as that, to protect you, your property and to catch with. Some people even used them for hunting and treeing or even retrieve like a Labrador. They were useful in killing wild predators or wild dogs that may be after any animal that you owned. That's where they got the term gangbuster. They were a general all-purpose dog. Whatever you needed, they were willing to do it. My father also told me that a lot of men pit fought them in his day, although he never did anything like that with his dogs."

"They were tall up on legs they had length, they had a square bulldog head, but back then they had to do things they don't have to do today. They had to be big strong and active enough. The dogs had to run from 25 to 30 mph to catch those wild dogs or catch bulls. So they had to be big to do what they were doing and more or less if you found some that were smaller they would be in town, people wanted them more as just pets. But the old working bulldog was big."

"There was big ones, medium sized ones and what I call small, 80 lb. and under. They were of different sizes but they all looked alike, they were not like they are now, where some have heavy bone, broad-chests, square heads like a bulldog and some have long muzzles, narrow headed and fine boned. The bulldog looked like a bulldog and anytime you saw one you knew what it was. Back then, there was a variation in size. There were some real big ones, and some medium sized and then some smaller. There was an awful lot of white, but there was some with a little color. Most of them had square heads and some had round. They all had a medium muzzle from 3" at most down. There were some big dogs then that went 130 lb. to 150 lb. and they were just straight bulldogs. For some reason they didn't always come the same size like some breeds. They were tall up on legs, they had length, they had a square bulldog head, but back then they had to do things they don't have to do today. They had to be big strong and active enough. The dogs had to run from 25 to 30 mph to catch those wild dogs or catch bulls. There were more white than there were colored dogs. They always had some with color with a patch or two on the body or on the head. Fifty years ago, I hardly ever got anything except solid white, maybe with just color on the eyes or something or another. In the early part of this century and in the century before, we used these dogs on our farms and they were a real asset in working cattle and to a lesser extent hogs. If I have a preference it would be a white dog with good pigment."
