Bullkita Breed History

The name Bulkita is a combination of the names of the dog’s two parent breeds, the Bulldog and the Akita. The Bulldog of today is known to be a calm addition to the family. He now leads a much more pleasant life than his earlier beginnings. A courageous canine, he was at one time in history forced into the bull-baiting ring and the fighting pit. Once these activities were thankfully outlawed, the Bulldog was allowed to shine as a loving companion. He is currently the 4th most popular dog according to the American Kennel Club's register. The Bullkita’s other parent, the Akita, originated in Japan thousands of years ago. Originally hunters, they have a long history of being held in high regard, looked upon as spiritual symbols of health, protection, happiness, and longevity. In 1931, Akitas were designated as one of Japan’s national treasures. Helen Keller, who loved the breed, is credited with bringing the first Akita to North America. Recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1972, the Akita ranks at #46 in popularity today and excels at therapy and in the show ring. The product of these two purebred dogs is relatively new, though a beloved breed by those who own it. 

Bullkita Breed Appearance

Bullkitas look like slightly smaller Akitas with short coats and some Bulldog characteristics. They are high-set and have strong front and hind limbs, as well as a thick muscular neck. Full grown Bullkitas weigh 70 to 95 pounds and stand 18 to 22 inches tall. They have round eyes and ears that stand upright. Bullkita’s muzzles are relatively short with a broad black nose, but not squished like a Bulldog’s. Their paws are large and wide to support their big frame. The breadth of coat variations within each parent breed accounts for the Bullkita’s wide range of colors. Their short, smooth, thick and dense coat can be black, brown brindle, fawn, silver, white, fallow, fawn brindle, red, red brindle – all colors have the possibility of including white and brindle spot coverage and markings.

Bullkita Breed Maintenance

Bullkitas are not hypoallergenic dogs and thus not suitable for owners with allergies. Due to their short and smooth coats they do not require much grooming, by they do shed moderately and have a high tendency to drool. Owners can reduce uncontrolled shedding by brushing their Bullkita’s coat with a firm bristle brush. These dogs should only be bathed when needed so that their coats retain natural oils and shine. Owners should, however, clean any face or body wrinkles daily to avoid skin infections that occur between the folds (this is important for more Bulldog-like Bullkitas). Bullkitas should also have their nails clipped 1 to 2 times a month to prevent painful overgrowth or nail splitting. Like all breeds, Bullkitas should have their teeth brushed daily.

Bullkita Temperament

Bullkitas are known to be aggressive, friendly, and loyal pets. They are assertive, yet sensitive animals that are hyper attune to their surroundings. As such, they thrive in stable environments with a consistent schedule and affectionate interactions with their owners. Too many changes at once can invoke anxiety and exacerbate this breed’s aggressive nature. If they take after their Bulldog parent, they will be fine with children. If the Bullkita is more Akita, however, it may need to be supervised with small children and other animals – at least until the parties are acquainted. Still, Bullkitas are very people oriented and eager to please. This quality makes them relatively easy to train and housebreak. An added benefit is that they bark very rarely. You can expect a Bullkita to bond quickly with family members and initiate playtime and snuggling at home. This dog has a moderate amount of energy and will be content if they are surrounded by people who engage socially and attend to their moderate exercise needs.

Bullkita Activity Requirements

The Bullkita is a moderately energetic breed that requires regular exercise to stay healthy. A daily modest walk or dog park session should be sufficient. Keep in mind that this breed is partial to cool weather and should not be over exercised extreme heat – especially if their coat appears to be more like a purebred Akita. As long as Bullkitas get the exercise they need to maintain a healthy weight, they will be content in all types of home environments – whether urban, suburban, or rural. It’s important to note that affection and quality time indoors is also important for this breed’s mental and emotional health.

Extremely affectionate and very energetic, she gets very excited when anyone enters the house but struggles with separation anxiety and can’t be left alone for a long period of time as she will destroy items in the house. Never barks and is very protective of us and kids if there are other big dogs around but she isn’t aggressive in the slightest.

Marley is a fantastic loyal pet, who has never yet met a person he didn’t like. However he has never met another dog that he did like. He is a completely different dog around people than he is around other dogs and animals.

Our Bullkita Holly is the most amazing dog I've ever had. She is extremely sweet, laid back, loves kids and any animal she meets. She's even taken our new kitten in a few years back and nursed him, we stopped it lol. Potty training was extremely easy, it took me two days to train her to go outside. She is a very healthy dog but during the summer she does have allergies. She is 80 lbs, Brindle, ears down and her mothers face (Akita) she has never bitten anyone or any animal and she has been attacked by three dogs at once and didn't do anything to defend herself. I do agree with the no barking! The only time Holly barks is when someone is at the door and it's one or two times and she's done. If you are looking for the perfect family dog a bullkita is definitely the right choice!
