English Bullweiler Breed History

The history of the English Bullweiler is vague and not well-documented, which creates for confusion as to its origins. It's just as important to look at the parent breeds ‚Äď the English Bulldog and the Rottweiler. The English Bulldog can be traced back to the ancient Mastiff due to artwork and writings. However, the breed was developed in England entirely. Originally bred to be aggressive, it was bred to win bull-baiting matches that was believed to result in tenderized meat for the bulls. His physique was bred to be short and stocky which allowed for easy access to the bulls. In 1835, bull-baiting was officially outlawed and the aggressive English Bulldog was left without a task. Breeders worked to modify the breed and reinvent its purpose by breeding out the aggression. The English Bulldog was eventually a docile and friendly dog with an affectionate side. In 1890, the breed was officially recognized by the AKC. The Rottweiler descended from the Romans, who wanted a dog who could drive herds that fed the traveling army. With time, these dogs bred with local dogs in Rottweil, which resulted in a strong breed used by butchers to drive cattle to market. The Rottweiler was used for protection and to guard the butcher's profits. The breed was also used to pull carts and deliver meat and milk. When the Rottweiler nearly disappeared after its purpose was no longer needed, German breeders reinvented the breed and saved it from extinction. In 1931, the American Kennel Club officially recognized the Rottweiler.
