Interested in owning an American Bulldog? You must be or you wouldn’t be reading this. You’ve already heard how wonderful AB’s are. Well, we think that you should also hear, before it’s too late, that AB’s ARE NOT THE PERFEFT BREED FOR EVERYONE! As a breed they have a few features that some people find charming, and some people may find mildly unpleasant and some may find downright intolerable.

There are different breeds for different needs. There are over 200 purebred breeds of dogs in the world. Each breed was created with some specific purposes in mind. There are lap dogs, hound dogs, herding dogs, hunting dogs, and many varied combinations of these and other functions. Before you decide on one specific breed, investigate it’s history, temperment, and uses to make sure that they mesh well with your own lifestyle. Just because a breed is currently popular does not mean it’s the right one for you, and the choice of a dog should be made with the intention of caring for that dog throughout it’s lifetime.
