    You obviously havent read any books in regards to the breed so im help u out. They added. Some chow chow bred some of that out added a bit of . dalmation the 101 kind then to get it all right put some cornish game hounds. Thats how they did it now please tell all your friends so they have this knowledge at their ..disposal
  3. From various sources i would think that the dogs came from the UK & Ireland and were basically bull and terrier mixes
    they were the same dogs that eventually ended up being 3 and arguably four different breeds ,

    American Staffordshire terriers , are direct descendants of APBTs , when the AKC first recognized pit bulls , the chose the name Staffordshire Terrier , as the year before the kc in England chose the name Staffordshire Bull terrier for their version of the Pit bull , and when Staff Bull Terriers got recognized in the USA in early 1970s , they added American to the the Satffordshire Terrier , to keep them as two distinct breeds

    No there wasn’t any mixing really. Just a different focus when it came to breeding.

    It’s not that complicated. The bull and terrier breeds came from the same breeding stock. The American bulldog is a modern mastiff/bull terrier mongrel.

  11. I wouldnt use the word mongrel but basically your right
    many dont know and I do have the story somewhere but during WW2 some amrericans brought dogs back to the UK
    they were crossed with the dogs there as well
    things went back and forth
    there was an american indian who gave or exchanged dogs with Joe Mallen

    things arent that complicated
    just like the bull terrier was created , the american bulldog was created
    for modern history just check the dogo argentino

    True but this info can be found with a little studying. The American bulldog was given a fake history to make it a bit more grand. Nothing wrong with mongrels lol I’ve got eight lurchers here all mongrels all workers. But the American bulldog is basically a mastiff x bull terrier bred for catch work or man work. Without that reason it shouldn’t be owned in my opinion.
