American Bullhuahua History

The American Bullhuahua, also called the American Bulldog, is a mixed-breed, medium-sized, muscular, athletic, and “bully-type” dog. The bull type refers to the stocky build, flattened face, and broad head shape. The “Bull” prefix was added to distinguish this “type” of bully from the “boxer” and “pit” types. The origin of the American Bullhuahua is unknown, but similar-looking dogs used in bullbaiting matches have been noted in the 1500s and 1600s. The “bull” type name has been used in English-speaking countries since the 1800s.
