    Default AKC question

    I recently got my first EB, and upon first notice she looked a lot wider than most EB's I have seen: however when I looked at her paperwork my only concern was puppy papers and are they still good. Later I noticed her paper's just say bulldog? What does that mean?

    Technically, that's the breed name for what we call English Bulldog. Nothing more. There is no breed called English Bulldog in AKC

    Just to keep things interesting according to the AKC, what we call Pit Bulls are American Staffordshire Terrier (Amstaff). Any of the other Bully Breeds are Mutts - American Bulldogs, Oldes, Shortybulls, Mini's Pockets, American Bully s ......... There are, however other registries out there that recognize these breeds as being unique breeds and not just mixes of other dogs.

    Yes and to add not all, even if purebred, APBT or American Bully's are registerable with the AKC. To be so they must have a registered pedigree within the AKC

    Don't forget about those too friggin cute Bull Terriers. They're another Bully breed recognized by the AKC. There's also the Bull Mastiff. And upon looking at the AKC's site, they also rocgnize a Miniature Bull Terrier.

    But like what's been said, the AKC refers to what we consider an English Bulldog as just a Bulldog.

    Historically the origin of the three bully breeds mentioned above was the Bull and Terrier. A cross between the Bulldog and Terrier.
