|Easy To Understand Bulldog Standards
|Remember while you are looking for a bulldog or a bulldog puppy that just because a bulldog appears to be at or near standard
it does not mean it is a healthy quality bulldog. All that means is that the bulldog may have been closely LINE BRED to
conform to standard and the health problems may far surpass the standard looking appearance of the bulldog.
CLICK to read What's Wrong With American Breeders if you have not already and that will help you in finding a healthy
quality bulldog or bulldog puppy. STOP and compare every bulldog and bulldog puppy on a web site to the standard. If you
see SUB STANDARD traits like bow-legged, jutted jaws, boxer type noses, or they fail to answer your questions about LINE
BREEDING or show you their facilities ... RUN from the place.

Everyone loves the X-Man as he is near perfect in standard as are nearly every bulldog and bitch we own. ALL
conform without LINE breeding. Let's look at each part so you know what to look for and especially what to look for
if you intend to show your bulldog.
The Bulldog Head
Never buy a bulldog puppy if you do not see pictures of Mom, Dad, and Grandpa. If possible check even farther back
in the history of the bulldog puppy. If you see several generations of bulldogs that are NOT line bred and they are
conforming to standard, that is what you are looking for.
1. Notice the far left picture ... look for eyes that are low in the head. In the USA many line breeders will
have bulldogs where the eyes are round looking like the typical stuffed toy. The skull will have a crease or what
appears to be a crack. There is actually an indentation in the skull when the bulldog is full grown and it will not appear
in bulldog puppies. This is why it is important to look at the Genetic History of the bulldog. The bulldog mask (nose &
muzzle) should be black, any other color is NOT acceptable. Young bulldog puppies will often be two toned until they
2. The bulldog chops are to hang down but are not to be over-blown and sagging out of proportion to the rest
of the head. The bottom jaw is NOT to protrude way past the face and NEVER should you buy a bulldog puppy where
the parents have both bottom teeth showing all the time as the jaw looks jutted too far out.
3. Most important is the side angle of the bulldog. This is called a "Brick" meaning that the face lays back
from the bottom jaw to the top of the head at about a 45 degree angle. A NOSEY bulldog that has a boxer appearance
is NOT what you want. In fact it probably has some boxer creme in the coffee somewhere.

NO NOSEY BULLDOGS
No Boxer Creme In The Coffee
|The Bulldog Ears
The Only Acceptable Bulldog Ear Is
The Rosebud ... NO Other Ear
The ears will turn off and down to the side of the head. NO ears that stand up or Tulip over like a Lab. The ears must
turn down and from the side of the head. A young bulldog's ears will look different and will not fully mature in looks
until around 18 months. Make sure you examine the parents ears and Grandpa as well.
BULLDOG BODY CONFORMATION
There should be a nice slope in the back and a nice arch in the rear butt portion near the tail of a bulldoy, a good
brisket or chest and the bulldog tail can vary but long is better and must face down when relaxed. Never should a
bulldog appear TALL or leggy. Low to the ground in the front is the preferred bulldog standard. If they look TALL
there is Boxer creme in the coffee somewhere.
When you look between the front legs of a bulldog you should see a SQUARE. Not a big rectangle but a SQUARE
from the inside parts that are closest. NO Bow-legged bulldogs like in the cartoons. The feet can turn out a little but
when standing the square should be obvious even in most bulldog puppies. If you see parents that are bow-legged or
their chest appears abnormally large or small, this is not good. If the rear is too small that is not good as well.
Remember a bulldog should be LOW to the ground and square in the front. A TALL bulldog will appear to have a
TALL box between his front legs.
I hope this really helps you in your journey to find that one special bulldog just for you. Remember that above the
standard keep the HEALTH and PERSONALITY of the bulldog foremost in your search. I am a genetic breeder and
NOT a LINE breeder and our bulldogs will beat all others hands down on Health, Personality and conformity to the
bulldog standard. Our bulldogs are not genetic fat pigs that are lazy.
