Is the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): ABBB; Alapaha; Alapaha Bulldog; Otto

The basics:
According to the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog Association (ABBA) , this breed was developed in the U.S. south first for cattle and pig herding, and later as a family guard and companion. Little known outside the south, it hasn't been accepted into most show dog circles, so it may not appeal to the prospective exhibitor. However, it could be an interesting choice for the experienced dog owner interested in the preservation of rare breeds. Some fanciers believe the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is not different from the American Bulldog, though others claim that ABBBs have been bred separately, with an aim to preserve the old plantation dogs of the South.

Appearance / health:
Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs are strong, robust dogs that have typical bulldog looks with a broad forehead. Muscular in appearance, they have a deep, broad chest, drop ears, and a tail that curls upwards. The back is almost the same length as the height at the shoulders. The hips are narrower than the chest.

The grooming of these dogs is minimal. Combing and brushing is done occasionally to remove any unwanted hair. ABBBs are average shedders and bathing is done when necessary.

They require moderate amounts of exercise. Jogging or a daily long walk is necessary.

Owing to the limited gene pool, they are prone to entropion, or inversion of eyelids.

Behavior / temperament:
Alert and protective, ABBBs are fiercely protective of their family and home. Always dutiful and loving, they make ideal companion dogs and guard dogs. They are full of personality and are not afraid of even larger animals, probably owing to their bulldog ancestry.

They are fast learners and are not difficult to train as long as the training begins early.

They are generally not very noisy. However, individuals may vary.

Helpful Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Review

Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog

Rampage drug me out of the recliner I was sleeping in until I awoke. He then drug me down the hall toward my kids crying the whole way. As I got halfway down the hall I could see light from the flames through the horrid smoke that filled the house. I got to the room just in time to grab a blanket and lay on the flames to smother them. The fire was not even an inch from the curtains and about 6 inches from my closest child. Ram then proceeded to get in the bed and start licking the kids and jumping around. As they awoke scared and bewildered he never left my side. I was able to scream loud enough to wake my step father in the next room and he helped the kids out as I finished putting out the fire. Even after the door was open and the kids were leaving, Ram stayed with me. He inhaled alot of smoke and got quite the cold and an ear infection from the subsequent bath he received because he was covered in soot. But he has made a full recovery and is my constant companion. Never have I seen such loyality..
