Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Breed Information Center
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog (ABBC) is one of the most popular bulldogs breeds in the world. They are known for their large size, strength, speed and intelligence. These dogs have been bred since the 19th century to be used as guard dogs or working dogs. ABBCs are usually found guarding farms, factories and other industrial sites where they need to work with great attention to safety and efficiency. Other uses include police and military forces, search and rescue teams, and even as therapy animals.
Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog History:
In 1887 the first bulldog was born in New Zealand. In 1908 the first American bulldog was born in Texas. By 1920 there were over 1 million ABBCs registered worldwide! Today there are approximately 3 million ABBCs registered worldwide.
Bulldog history is full of ups and downs. Many people believe that the bulldog originated from the English bull terrier but it actually came from the Australian dingo dog. The bulldog was originally bred to hunt down and kill dingoes, which were considered vermin because they ate rabbits. However, due to the fact that these dogs were not very intelligent, they became dangerous when introduced into human communities where they had no natural fear of humans or anything else. Because of this, they were used in public executions and as all-purpose attack dogs.
It was during this period that they acquired the nickname “the butcher’s dog”. There is evidence that bulldogs were first brought to England by Julius Caesar around 55 B.C. In the 18th century bulldogs were popular with butchers not only because of their viciousness but also because they were easy to feed.
