REAL OLDE ENGLISH BULLDOGGE HAVE LONG TAIL.
Standard - Olde English Bulldogge
The Olde English
Bulldogge is a muscular, medium and large sized dog of great strength, stability
and athleticism. He is well balanced and proportioned, with no feature
exaggerated or standing out. He has the appearance of a dog capable of doing his
original job, bull baiting. Remember that excessive height would have been
detrimental for the old working Bulldog because he had to play low to avoid
the bulls horns and fasten onto his nose. A heavy weight dog would have also
been at a disadvantage because the bulls nose would have been more likely to
rip, sending the dog flying.
The Olde English Bulldogge
was developed in the early 1970's by David Leavitt, of Coatesville, PA. Mr.
Leavitt used a line breeding scheme that was designed and developed by Ohio
State University for breeding cattle. The goal was to recreate a specific breed
of Bulldogge with the look, health and athleticism of the original bull baiting
dogs, but without the extreme tenacity. The foundation crosses consisted of
English Bulldog, and the other half Bullmastiff, American Pit Bull Terrier, and
American Bulldog. After many carefully planned crosses, the Olde English
Bulldogge emerged and began to breed true.
The disposition of the
Olde English Bulldogge is confident, courageous and alert. OEBs are very
friendly and loving. They are extremely strong and occasionally display same sex
dog aggression, so socialization and obedience training are important. It is
best to channel high energy individuals to some type of work and exercise.

and forms an angle approximately 110 degrees to the humerus (forearm). Scapula
and humerus should be roughly equal in length.
ELBOWS A vertical line
drawn from the point of the scapula (top) to the ground will pass directly
through the elbow. The elbows are not turned in or out.

when viewed from the side. Stifle angle roughly matches the angle of the pelvis.
Hocks are perpendicular to the ground when viewed from the side and back. They
are parallel to each other when viewed from the back. A line drawn from the rear
most part of the buttocks, perpendicular to the ground, should fall to the front
of the toes. A line drawn from the upper (front) point of the pelvis,
perpendicular to the ground, should pass through the knee (the two preceding
