It’s believed that the early ancestor of both these breeds, was the Fila da Terceira which was brought to Brazil by early Portuguese settlers. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, a high number of modern day English Bulldogs were brought to South America by European settlers and were bred with the existing local working Bulldogs, found in rural parts of Brazil to create the foundation dogs for both breeds. The early working Bulldogs were known as ‘Bordogas’ by the locals and were highly valued for their working abilities. Despite the Buldogue Campeiro and Buldogue Serrano descending from the same root stock, they are now two separate breeds. There is a clear difference between the two, as the Buldogue Campeiro has become a slightly heavier/stockier dog and more recently, its believed that Old English Bulldog and Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog blood has been added to some lines, as many are now being born with merle coats. The Buldogue Serrano has remained relatively the same and tends to be a lighter and more athletic type of dog. MORE INFO COMING SOON!!!
