Default American Bull Dogs

Okay what is a American Bull Dog supposed to look like? Are they all white or can they be brown white and black? Are they related to the Pit Bull????

This should help:

http://www.american-bulldog.com/aba_standard.htm

Taken from the standard:
Color: All white, pied, or up to 90% color [brindle or red patches, (red is defined as any shade of tan, brown or red)], with a portion of the white on the head.

Wow; That is impressive! Thank you so much for the assistance. My husband for some reason has decided that he wants this breed of dog. I keep telling him we have Sasha!!!! But that's not good enough he wants a muscle dog!

Now we know I will be the one caring for the dog so here goes another question?? Since Sasha is a female do we get another female or do we get a male? If we get a male what is to be expected???

I wish the Old man would just be happy with Sasha!!!!!!!!!!! I am ! In his words; You have a dog I should be able to have one too! How childish but again that's a man for you!

Sorry; But yet another question?? Would we be better off to buy one from a rescue or purchase a puppy? Since Sasha is 4 months old should we wait till she is older? I just do not think it is fair to raise two pups at one time. Sasha is great but I do not know what to expect having two young dogs at the same time.

Are you guys planning to spay her?

Generally, I think that the best combination is a neutered male and spayed female. It would be important that you spay Sasha before bringing a male home though.

Most definetly; I do not wish to be a grandma at any time! Let it be two legged kids or four legged kids. I just love my little angle to much to let her go through anything like that.

She will be spayed at 6 months right on the nose no worries there what so ever. So if I find a bull dog breeder that is having a litter in a few months do I place a deposit on the pup then or wait till I see them?

Shelter dogs are always best, as you are rescuing instead of feeding money to people that breed for the sole purpose. But, I wont go there because you are genuine in asking for help and information and probably unaware of the alot of what is out there regarding the breed.

If however you do buy from a breeder, make sure you see PROOF of the parents health cert and OFA. This breed can have and pass on several medical problems and the last thing you want to end up with is a puppy that you fall in love with developing hip dysplasia or a brain tumor.

A very touchy breed, be careful.Dont get me wrong, wonderful breed, but you HAVE GOT to be prepared.
