American Bulldogs Make Great Pets

American bulldogs can be wonderful pets and companions. The American Bulldog is a breed of working dog developed for catching livestock and for protecting property. There are generally considered to be two types of American Bulldog, the Johnson type and the Scott type, named after the breeders who were influential in developing them, John D. Johnson and Allen Scott. These are more commonly known as Classic or Bully type and Standard or Performance type.

Bulldogs have gotten a bad rap over the years. Because of their appearance people often assume they are aggressive. Bulldogs actually have a great temperment and make excellent pets. They are playful and loving, but they will defend their family if the need arises. They are great companions for children. They make great guard dogs because of their menacing features and will turn away most intuders. Something that I have noticed about bulldogs is their ability to sense fear in their companion. They seem to know very quickly if their companion is afraid of something or someone and will try to defend their companion against the object of their fear. This is only a personal observation. Again if you are looking for a pet, I think you would not go wrong with a bulldog.
