Olde English Bulldogge Dog Breed Facts
The Olde English Bulldogge is an American dog breed. In the 1970s David Leavitt created a true-breeding lineage as a re-creation of the healthier working bulldog from early nineteenth century England. Using a breeding scheme developed for cattle, Leavitt crossed English bulldogs, American Bulldogs, Bull Mastiffs and American Pit Bull Terriers. The result was an athletic breed that looks similar to the bulldogs of 1820, but also has a friendly temperament with fewer health issues. Pure breed Olde English Bulldogges can be registered under the International Olde English Bulldogge Association  and other respected Associations.
The Olde English Bulldogge was an attempt to recreate the “Regency Period Bull Baiter” and was developed in the early 1970s by David Leavitt, of Coatesville, PA. Leavitt began his project in 1971 utilizing the cattle line breeding scheme of Dr. Fechimer from Ohio State University. The goal was to create a dog with the look, health, and athleticism of the original bull-baiting dogs, but with a much less aggressive temperament. The foundation crosses consisted of one-half English Bulldog, one-sixth American Bulldog, one-sixth Bull Mastiff and one-sixth of other breeds. After many planned crosses, the Olde English Bulldogge emerged and began to breed true.
