White English Bulldog

The Old White English Bulldogs have been here in the Southern States since the earliest settlers… all I’ve ever heard them called was White English Bulldogs. They are a.k.a. Old English Whites, Old Southern Whites, and I believe they are the same as the Mountain Bulls.

I got my first bulldogs in 1964 after graduating from High School. Gene was the guy mine came from. His wife was a nurse, and worked for a doctor over in Washington County * (Panhandle, Floride). He had those Bulldogs for as far back as I can remember. I used to see them when I was a kid. They would lay up in front of his house by the highway and watch everything go by, but I never saw one leave the yard. They were big boned, white and bully looking. My Uncles always told me they were White English Bulldogs. This is the same stock that I have now. They are very smart. Most of the time all you have to do is just talk to them; they seem to understand everything you say. They are easy to obedience train, and eager to please. For the most part they are the biggest clowns you ever saw. Always finding something to get into.

I have caught wild hogs and one horse and one cow. So I would say they would catch anything they were trained to catch. I don’t breed man aggressive dogs. I don’t need them biting someone without provocation. They are how ever protective of family and home. A dog with a stable temperament does not mean they won’t protect.

In the beginning my dogs were all white. Every once in a while I would get one with a spot on it. I then started breeding the ones with spots until I have a little colour on them. Most always it’s on the head. In size they range from 70 lbs. to 100 lbs. Every once in a blue moon, one may grow out larger than that, but that is an exception rather than the rule. I have now on my yard 3 males and 4 females. Normally when I make a breeding I do it for me. It has been a little over a year since I’ve had a litter. I have 2 breedings planned for this year. I will be keeping some for me and I have several friends that are waiting for a pup. A lot of my pups go to repeat buyers. There are several people that are using these White English in their breeding programs on Scott and Johnson dogs, and from what I’ve been told, they’ve had good results.

I know this..I won’t ever be without one here on my place… I work rotating shift work, and I know that when I leave for work… my family is safe from harm, be it man or beast….If they greet you at the drive it’s o. k. to get out, but you don’t want to mess with my family….They also do varmin control here…. If it belongs here it can stay….if it don’t, it dang sure better be fast… my males are male dog aggressive and my females normally get along together pretty well.

  1. I would love to be proven wrong , but can anyone show proof of the breed , any articles in books , or old dog magazines , Iv never seen any , untill around the 1970s ,,never seen any mention of them before the 60s,,

  2. Ricky B- some time back in the 60s they were actually called white English pit bulldog ,American Pit Bulldog or just Bulldog. Not the same as pitbull terrier. If you haven’t been, go to Joshua Kennels website on the Original American Bulldog they have old paintings with dates. Proof maybe maybe not. Believe what you want, But today they are what they are and good Bulldogs.
