Olde English Bulldogge

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.

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.
