Back in the 1970s a dog breeder who loved English Bulldogs, but regretted what the dog show establishment had done to the breed in terms of reducing their functionality and overall health, not to mention distorting their original appearance, decided to attempt to reproduce the English Bulldog of the late 19th Century. One of my dogs is a product of that effort, and I think he got pretty close.

This was the English Bulldog type he was going for (picture taken in the late 19th Century):

Here are a couple of pictures of my dog.

That's a good looking hound.

Some friends of my parents had one, Oscar was his name. I dunno what they fed him, but he was a prolific farter. His emissions literally permeated their entire house regularly. He was a good ol dog, though.

Becoming trendy is the death knell for any dog breed. It’s gotten so bad that veterinarians are specifically telling people not to buy English bulldogs because of the multitude of health problems.

You’ve got a good looking bullie.

Same thing happened with pitt bulls. The working pitt bull of my youth has very little resemblance with what's called a pitt bull today.

If that's what is now called a "Old English Bulldogge" a neighbor got one of those after having had one of the typical English bulldogs prior that developed health issues that eventually led to it's death while still a relatively young dog.

They said they went with the "Old English Bulldogge" on the next pup because they were supposed to not have the propensity to develop as many health issues common to the typical English bulldog breed.

Farting and snoring both is common in most of the 'mashed nose' dog breeds, regardless what they are fed.

Frenchies are having the same problems. It's a shame.

My daughter has one of each. The old english is a running, jumping athlete.

At six years of age, the short legged english has had about six surgeries to keep him alive and kicking. All he is good for, is to lay around the house, eat, fart, and schitt.

But he does beg for attention, and doggy treats. He loves everybody.

AKC has ruined several breeds.

On one of my first trips to England to visit a friend he took me to his parents house about an hour East of Manchester. His dad was breeding and raising original English Bulldogs. He too didn’t like what the breed had become and was only interested in preserving the Old World Bulldogs.

You have some good looking animals TRH, I’m sure they’re as lucky to have you as you them. 👍
