American Bulldog Breed Appearance
The American Bulldog is a medium to large dog, standing between 20 and 28 inches tall and maxing out around 120 pounds but usually averaging somewhere closer to 90. They are a highly muscular and powerful breed and show it prominently in their figure thanks to their short coats. Because of their varying lineage, they can range in overall appearance, mostly showing in their legs and face, but almost all share a stock set of characteristics. Regardless of type, they all sport a compact frame for their size, much of their weight being represented by a plethora of muscle that lines all four legs, back, chest and even their necks. They have large heads with strong jaws, short, folded ears, preferably undocked, and thick, tapering tails. American Bulldogs with strong Johnson traits sport a shortened muzzle with a bit heavier build similar to the English Bulldog, and are usually a bit shorter. The Standard, on the other hand, generally sports a more trim, athletic build, a longer muzzle and more boxy head, and are generally the taller specimens of the breed overall. Their coats are short and relatively thin and have long been known to be white with patches of everything from black to red to brown, but over time have come to incorporate a variety of colors and patterns.
