Breeders of American Bulldogs

If you are interested in owning an American Bulldog, it is important to find a reputable breeder. 

 

A good breeder will not only provide you with a healthy and well-socialized puppy, but also be a valuable resource for information and support throughout your dog’s life.

 

 

Here are a few things to look for when choosing a breeder:

 

  • Experience: Look for a breeder with several years of experience breeding American Bulldogs
  •  
  • Health testing: A responsible breeder will perform health tests on their breeding dogs to screen for genetic health issues that can be passed on to puppies.
  •  
  • Socialization: Puppies should be raised in a home environment and exposed to a variety of people, animals, and experiences to help them grow into well-adjusted adults.
  •  
  • Contracts: A good breeder will provide a written contract outlining their responsibilities and expectations, as well as any health guarantees.
  •  

When you find a breeder that meets these criteria, be prepared to ask questions and do your research. Here are a few questions to ask a breeder:

 

  • How long have you been breeding Blue American Bulldogs?
  •  
  • What health tests do you perform on your breeding dogs?
  •  
  • What kind of socialization do you provide for your puppies?
  •  
  • Do you offer any health guarantees?
  •  
  • Can I meet the parents of the litter?

Remember, a good breeder will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. By taking the time to find a reputable breeder, you can ensure that you are bringing home a healthy and happy American Bulldog.

 

 

History of Blue American Bulldogs

The blue coloration in American Bulldogs is caused by a dilution gene, which causes the black color to fade into a blue-grey color. This dilution gene is a recessive trait, which means that both parents must carry the gene for their offspring to have the blue coloration. For an American Bulldog to get this color it will have to have been introduced from another breed.

 

 

American Bulldogs of different colours have gained popularity in recent years, but it’s important to note that the breed should be bred responsibly and not solely for their colours. Breeders should prioritize the health and temperament of the dogs over their appearance.
