Spotlight breed: Olde English Bulldogge
 I have had a lot of interest in particular breeds that people are seeing on my site. I thought is would be fun to start a blog series that spotlights a specific breed that has been at Home Away From Home K9 Care. Only being open for a short while we have seen some cool and interesting dog breeds become honorary family members here. Keep and eye out for any breeds you may find interesting. It is important to understand your dog's breed or a breed you are looking to own. It may help you explain behaviors of your dog or help you find that perfect puppy for you.

Olde English Bulldogge

History: A new and rare breed developed by David Leavitt. His goal was to produce a dog with the looks of the 18th century bulldog with the temperament of todays English Bulldog but without the breathing problems and other ailments typical of the English Bulldog. He began this in 1971 by cross breeding half English Bulldog and the other half: Bullmastiff, Pit Bull and American Bulldog.
Temperament: These dogs are docile, but capable, protective, determined and courageous, bold and friendly around its family and friends. They do make for good guard dogs. This breed likes to chew and should be provided with many toys and bones. Stay away from stuffed toys and rawhide that can be easily shredded or swallowed. Because this breed is a strong breed, socialization and training are extremely important. This breed tends to drool and slobber.
Size: Males: 17-20 inches, 60-80lbs Females: 16-19 inches, 50-70lbs
Life Expectancy: 11 years or more Exercise: Daily walks, moderate exercise
