The Old Anglican Bulldogge is a hybrid mix between the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Bulldog. Taking after the Pit Bull, the Old Anglican Bulldogge is a medium sized breed that possess a lean, well-built body and broad shoulders. The face, while not as flat as the Bulldog's, is square with loose flaps of skin on the muzzle that gives the breed that classic, lovable goofiness that is a primary trait of the Bulldog.  Although the parents of the Old Anglican Bulldogge give him quite the intimidating history and appearance, this breed is a total lover who gets along well with everyone if given the chance.

Old Anglican Bulldogge Breed History

Because the Old Anglican Bulldogge is a newer hybrid breed, we must turn to the parent breed's history in order to learn more about why the Old Anglican may have been created. While an origin story may seem rather understated, in the long run it is an important factor to consider as it helps clarify what traits may be the most prominent in the hybrid. For instance, many people can get a bad taste in their mouth when they hear the American Pitbull Terrier mentioned due to their history of dog fighting. But this wasn't always the case. Originally, the Pitbull was created to be a farm dog with jobs such as hunting rats, wild pig, and even bears! Despite these dangerous jobs that required a high amount of aggression, the Pitbull were also very good with people of all ages. They are very intelligent dogs who have severe loyalty to their humans, a sense of fearlessness, and determination that made them perfect for tasks that ranged from being a family protector to working in the military, such as being a representative for the United States during World War I. It was because of this loyalty and determination that people decided to use this wonderful breed for their own guilty pleasures. Dog fighting became legal for a period of time in the United States and people everywhere took part in it. Such activities is what gave the Pitbull a bad reputation, but thanks to determined breeders who believed in the breed, a comeback has been taking place for years. Although some places still won't accept the breed, such as the American Kennel Club, there are some who know and love the breed for what they really are; a loving, loyal dog who was always meant to be a wonderful companion. The American Pitbull Terrier has been accepted as an official breed since 1898 by the United Kennel Club. The Bulldog is a breed that has been around for at least 500 years and the original breed was taller and extremely ferocious. This was important as the Bulldog was intended to grab a bull by the nose and hold him in place; a sport that was known as "bull baiting". This was a very dangerous sport that people greatly enjoyed during a time when television and video games did not exist, but it also had a purpose. Bulldog's helped bait the bulls in order to bring the large animals in for castration or breeding, so they had an extremely important role to play. Through the years, the Bulldog generally remained the same, until around the time that dog fighting became outlawed in England, and showing became the new form of entertainment. From this, the Bulldog's were bred to be shorter and very well built, with a large head and square with a barrel chest. But not only was the appearance altered, but the personality was altered as well. Gone was the aggression and extremely tough nature; dedicated breeders worked hard to make the Bulldog a loving, kind, and courageous breed who was a wonderful companion for people everywhere. Eventually the Bulldog made his way to the United States and was registered by the American Kennel Club in the year 1886. From there he became a show dog, popular companion, and mascot for many groups; such as the Marines and some universities, like Yale. 

 

Old Anglican Bulldogge Breed Appearance

The Old Anglican Bulldogge is an impressive mixture of both the Bulldog's sturdy build and the American Pitbull Terrier's athletic stance. With tall legs, a full-length tail, and a slightly scrunched face, the Old Anglican tends to resemble the Pitbull a bit more than the Bulldog. While this hybrid breed does tend to resemble one parent more than the other, typically he will still have folded over ears (as both parent breeds do), and almond shaped eyes in a lovely golden brown color. As a short haired breed, the Old Anglican has very smooth and soft fur that tends to shed quite often. Because of the short hair, cold weather is not the Old Anglican Bulldogge's friend and he will be much happier in a warmer climate.

Old Anglican Bulldogge Breed Maintenance

The maintenance needs of the Old Anglican Bulldogge are rather modest as their short coat needs very little to be maintained. A good brushing with a slicker brush a couple times a week should be plenty to remove the loose hair and any dirt that may be lying on the body. When it comes to bathing, your Old Anglican will only need a good bath every few months or so, with occasional cleanings in-between if he gets especially dirty. Because this breed has folded over ears, frequent cleanings and thorough drying will be needed after bathing or swimming. This is required in order to stave off any ear infections that could occur due to left over moisture trapped in the ear canal. Besides basic bathing and brushing, be sure to trim your dogs nails every few weeks in order to keep the paws healthy and snag free.

Old Anglican Bulldogge Temperament

Despite what many people may choose to believe about the Pitbull and the Bulldog, the Old Anglican Bulldogge is a perfect example of all their good traits put together. While he can get a bit rambunctious at times and (if not properly socialized) may act up around other dogs or humans, the typical temperament for the Old Anglican is a loyal, loving, affectionate, playful breed who is easy to train. On top of this, the breed does wonderfully with children and other dogs, making him an excellent choice for families. The important thing to remember, with any dog, is that proper socialization and training is what makes the dog. If time is taken to socialize the Old Anglican properly when he is very young, there should be no need to worry about stray aggressive nature popping up now and again. The Old Anglican Bulldogge is active but not overly so and only barks when necessary.

Old Anglican Bulldogge Activity Requirements

Although the Bulldog and Pitbull were originally bred to be hard working dogs, as time went on, that high energy and tenacious nature was  bred out of the breed slightly. So while it may seem that an offspring of these two breeds would always be on the go and ready for the next big thing, you may be surprised to find out that the Old Anglican Bulldogge actually tires out rather quickly (like the Bulldog) and doesn't have a big tendency to beg for exercise. However, even if he doesn't ask for it, the Old Anglican does need exercise to keep him in shape and well-behaved. A short jog, long walk, training session, and a rousing game of fetch in the yard are all great examples of how you can interact with your dog and tire him out. Be sure to spend time training, as this is very important to keeping your dog both mentally and physically worn out. Because this breed is of a moderate energy level, he can do well in a smaller home as long as he is taken to a place where he can get his daily wiggles out.
