The current day Olde English Bulldogge is a
dog that resulted
from one American breeder,
David Leavitt. In 1971, Leavitt began breeding to restore the English
Bulldog to its original standard of the now extinct
Old English Bulldog, but without its aggressive tendency.
Just as the original Old English Bulldog came in various sizes, the Olde
English Bulldogge ranges from 80 to 100 lbs (36 to 45 kg).
By combining the affable modern
with the more resolute
American Pit Bull Terrier,
American Bulldog, David Leavitt of
Spring Grove, Pennsylvania was successful in eliminating the English
Bulldog's breathing problems and several other health issues, while at the same
time diminishing the tenacity of some of the other breeds.
The breed is currently registered by the
National Kennel Club, the
Animal Research Foundation, the
Continental Kennel Club and the
International Olde English Bulldogge Association.
