American Bulldogs are adorable and made of wrinkles and love. These guys are great with families and other pets. They make good running buddies as opposed to their similar breed the French bulldog. They are moderately noisy, easy to train, easy on leash, and pretty darn smart. They require little to no grooming which is always a plus. Growing up my dad always said he felt better leaving myself and sister home alone knowing our guy was there. He was an absolute mush but was protective and definitely made us all feel safe. Ours was very active as they all tend to be. They are muscular and love to run around and play. Surprisingly these guys are prone to far few less health problems than most breeds. The less inbred they are, the better. The one congenital health problem I would beware of is a problem called hypoplastic trachea. I know you find tons of them at shelters. They have that strong look, that tends to scare people looking for family dogs away, but they are basically mush. I would just ask the shelter to test them for resource guarding and you'd be good to go!
