One of the most muscular, strong and powerful dog breeds of America is American Bulldog Puppy. They are renowned by almost everyone who loves the dog and even who do not take interest in pets.

Their counterpart is English bulldogs but they have higher legs, they are agiler than them. They are famous for their jumping skills; some of them could even jump from six or more feet.

They are extremely loyal that they can fight even with wild dogs, or can jump into the fire to secure their owner. They are lovable and protective of their family. They have heavier boner, broad chest and boxier head along with natural or cropped ears.


When the world war II ended, one breeder whose name is John D. Johnson and his father had saved the American Bulldog from a big loss. They are looking for an ideal breeding from the south. Then they developed Johnson American bulldog breed by keeping all the records of their offsprings.

Later Allen Scott joined them to revive the breed further. After some time two different types of American bulldog came up which will be discussed further in this article.


One type is the Johnson American Bulldog which also known as the “classic” or the “bully” type. However, the Scott American Bulldog is also called as the “standard” or “performance” type. These two types were being investigated by two breeders John D. Johnson and Allen Scott.

Initially, they were working together on the development but later on Allen Scott discover its own breed. In this time, most American Bulldogs are a combination of both of these types that also called “hybrid” breed.
