The initial task of this breed (more than 100 years ago) was to assist farmers with catching unruly cattle, and he acted as a watchdog. He was also used as a hunting dog, particularly pigs, feral dogs and for driving cattle. They ensured that the cattle did not wander and protected them agains wolves. also they protect their bosses against unwanted visitors.


By the end of World War II, however, the breed was almost extinct. But John J. Johnson, a returning war veteran, began the new breed back to life along with several other breeders, including Scott, Painter and Koura. They selected the dogs only on  capacity.

Lana Lou Lane and her father also had their own line. Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog they call it . These dogs were important. The color blue brindle and descendants of the Blue Paul, an old fighting dog from England.

Johnson began carefully to breed American Bulldogs with use of other races and rigorous selection so that health and work ability were preserved.

The default type, however, is bred to work and is clearly a lot of drive, it is generally a little faster but they are more aggressive, but also the same like the Johnson type, very loyal companions.

They have a clear athletic muscular body. Are higher on the legs and slender build, (weigh 27 to 40 pounds) as quickly and agile. They also have a longer nose so they have more stamina.


Because they use breeds to cross such mastiff and bull-like species and other ancient Molossian (including St. Bernard, Spanish Bulldog, Bordeaux Dog, white big Pittbull, English Bulldog, athletic English Mastiff, Leopard Dog, Alaunt, Greyhound) are the different types and different colors.

John J Johnson made sure that the American Bulldog on January 1, 1999 was recognized by the United Kennel Club under the name “American Pitt Bull dog” but later the name was changed to: “American Bulldog”.
