Breed Name: Olde Victorian Bulldogge


History

Today’s modern day English Bulldog has many hereditary defects. The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is a result of “designer” breeding English Bulldogs, Bull Terriers, Bullmastiffs, Victorian Bulldogs and Staffordshire Bull Terriers in an attempt to have a dog with a slightly larger and more refined head, longer and straighter legs, a rounder “barrel like chest, and a strong athletic build. Most Olde Victorian Bulldoge breeders tend to like a breed for slightly stronger temperament in their dogs.

This breed is built very broad, strong and courageous in appearance. Their head is known as a "block head"; very square with rounded edges forming into a very powerful, broad jaw. and square muzzle. Their two ears are average in size to their body build, and should be folded 3/4 down and back; this is also known as "rose ear". Their two large, almond shaped eyes can be hazel to dark brown in color. In general this breed has a very muscular and full body build. Legs are side wide apart and lower to the ground. Their tail is medium in length and is carried low and outwards when not cropped.

Special Notes

Please note that this breed is not meant for everybody. This breed is sensitive to both hot and cold temperatures. Please fully educate yourself about the Olde Victorian Bulldogge prior to adding one to your household. Do not add a new dog to your home unless you are able to provide life long physical and financial care life long. We highly recommended a properly fenced in area for your new dog to roam freely within. All dogs originate from wolves (Canis Lupus). Each breed of dog was originally created by mixing different breeds together in an effort to bring forth certain characteristics. Once a breeder has created acceptable “breed characteristics” within their bloodline and these “breed characteristics” have shown to be reliably reproduced in the offspring for three (3) generations, the bloodline may be upgraded from the category of “foundation stock” to “pure-bred”. The same “pure-bred” breed standards vary from different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders. Dog DNA testing companies can have accurate results for a specific bloodline of a small colony of dogs. However, there are tens of thousands of different bloodlines in the world which have not yet been tested for marker baseline results by Dog DNA testing companies as of 2017. For this reason Dog DNA testing companies do not guarantee the 100% accuracy of their breed lineage results and will also show different marker results for the same pure-bred breed in different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders.
