Said to be a re-creation of the 18th century Bulldogge, the Olde English Bulldogge is alert, friendly, courageous and highly protective of owner and property. This broad-chested, medium-sized dog is powerful, athletic-looking and heavily muscled: males weigh a minimum of 60 pounds; females, 50 pounds. Its moderately wrinkled, large head and short, broad muzzle are less extreme than the regular Bulldog, but this breed does have the characteristic bully "tusks" of large, protruding bottom teeth set in an undershot, muscular jaw with hanging outer lips. The Olde English Bulldog comes in fawn, red, white or black--all may have brindling or white markings. Its guarding tendencies and determined nature call for regular obedience classes.
