There are some criadores that think that this race is recent and that comes from crossings between Bulldog, Bullmastiff and Pit Bull Terrier, but its extraordinary similarity with the old Bulldog, the father of all the Bulldog, makes think that this is the contemporary continuation of that one old race that cleared the extinction. The American Bulldog was originated like a working dog (mainly for cattle) and dog of protection, to the south-east of North America. And it was taken very in serious his work, became athletic and strong, where the men of those earth needed to hunt to the wild pigs.

The head is square and widens. The body is generally white with variations of spots of colors coffee, red or gray. The males are characteristic by their firm appearance, whereas the females more are refined. The American Bulldog must generate an impression of great force, agility, resistance and exhibit a robust and compact frame.
