Description

The White English Bulldog is a very old and rare breed of dog that originated in the Southern United States. Said to be the original bulldog from England unchanged. Surviving in isolated pockets of the South. Hence the name White English Bulldog.

They were original bred for farm utility work. They would guard the farm, control unruly cattle as well as catch farmers hogs that were raised free range. Some were used for hunting everything from raccoon,squirrels and even wild boar. All were used as family guardians and companions. Some were used by farmers to herd live stock and protect them from predictors.

The White English Bulldog is also known as: English Whites, Southern Whites, Old Southern Whites, Hill Bulls, American Bulldogs(forebearer of the original American Bulldog), and several additional names according to the location from which they came. The White English Bulldog has always been, and continues to be, a farm utility dog, as well as a trusted family guardian and companion.[1]

Temperament

WWEBA: Solid and sound; the most important factor when planning a breeding. White English Bulldogs should be alert, outgoing, confident and under total control at all times. Minor dog aggression is not considered a fault as long as the dog can be brought under control.

Disqualifications: Uncontrollable dog aggression and uncontrollable aggression towards handler and judge. Excessive shyness. * Note: A vicious dog shall be deemed vicious if refusing to be approached by the judge for full examination. A shy dog shall be deemed shy if refusing to stand for examination or shrinks away from the judge.


WEBPs: Loyal and fiercely protective of its master, the master's family, property, livestock and especially the children. A non-dominant dog that does not require a firm handed master, the WEB is submissive to it's master and master's family, especially children. The WEB is aloof with and untrusting of strangers, does not require much attention or activity, often appearing relaxed. Highly intelligent and intuitive, the WEB requires little to no training.

History

The White English Bulldog developed in the early pioneer days in the American southeast from various early imports.

How did the bull-dog find its way to America?

WWEBA: This question has never gotten the complete and correct answer because, frankly, there are no official documents which show how the dog got here. What is certain is that this dog was not indigenous to America prior to the settlers coming from Europe. Either the British or Spanish….or both….brought bull-dogs to this country.


The White English bulldog is the descendant of the bull-dogs mentioned above. How pure of a descendant is anyone’s guess. No one actually knows what if any dog has been crossed in the White English. We do know that they resemble most clearly the bull-dog prior to 1836. They also carry most of the temperament characteristics as well. However, the White English of today should not show the people aggression that the bull-dog reportedly had. We will never know what made the bull-dog mean, either hereditary or socially induced, but today’s White English should not have uncontrollable rage toward humans. What we can clearly state is that the White English Bulldog is the precursor to the American Bulldog. It is common knowledge that back in the 1970s, John D Johnson and Alan Scott had White English which they used as their foundation stock for their brand of American Bulldog.

Health

The White English Bulldog like other Bull breeds has some health issues. Although less than most Bull breeds. Many common problems are hip dysplasia , deafness (which is culled early by reputable breeders) elongated soft pallets and some skin issues.

Reproduction

Unlike the English Bulldog the White English Bulldog does not need a Caesarean birth ( C-section ) . They reproduce naturally .They usually have anywhere from 4 to 12 puppies.

They shouldn't be bred until after maturity to avoid any health issues that may arise at maturity.
