    I know the first one sort of looks like a Mastiff. They are bigger and not short and stocky like our English Bulldogs.

    Weeeeeeeeeell, actually there is English Bulldogs and then there are Olde English Bulldogges. English Bulldogs (AKC Bulldogs) are what the majority of us have at this website. Olde English Bulldogges, are a newer breed that was started back in the 1970's.They are still not recognized by the AKC.
    Here is part of an explaination found at: Olde English Bulldogge Information and Pictures, Olde English Bulldogges, Old English Bulldog, Old English Bulldogs

    The Olde English Bulldogge is a very new and rare breed developed by David Leavitt through the crossing half English Bulldog, and the other half: Bullmastiff, Pit Bull, and American Bulldog. In 1971 he became disenchanted with English Bulldogs due to their breeding and breathing problems. He discovered that they didn’t look like their ancestors who were healthier and less extreme. David's goal was to produce a dog with the looks of the 18th century bulldog, with the temperament of today's English Bulldogs, yet healthy, without breathing problems, or all the other aliments today's English Bulldogs are prone to. This new breed can now breathe. They will never be like hounds, able to run for miles during the hottest weather of summer, but they’re three times better than the restricted modern Bulldog. Cesarean section births are not necessary. Artificial insemination, due to male ineptness and lack of drive, has been replaced by natural ties. Life span is over eleven years. All breeding stock have had hip x-rays. No dog with bad hips is bred. David says he is now achieving his goal of producing a Bulldog with the health and temperament to be able to serve people, instead of forcing people to serve him. David Leavitt is breeding them to more of a working lines type dog, while OEBKC is breeding the dogs as more of a family oriented dog.

    Thanks for the information, @Mike Blaylock. I have collected antique advertising items for years and have some with Bulldog graphics, but wasn't aware some breeders were going back to the "old style" Bulldogs. I know in the old days Bulldogs lived to be 10 to 12.
