The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is a large muscular dog. A large square head starts of this breed and leads to their short muzzle which is droopy because both lips hang down. Large brown eyes, which are also round and full of expression, give this breed a sweet look. Sitting on the side of their head are two medium-size floppy ears. On their face are many wrinkles, especially on their forehead. A short thick neck with a dewlap leads to broad shoulders, their very deep chest, and their slightly sunken stomach. Short legs give this breed an unproportioned look and leads to large round feet. This unique looking breed has short sleek fur similar to that of all other bulldogs. Many color variations are common and acceptable for this breed, such as white, fawn, tan, brindle, and black brindle; all of these colors can have white mixed in.
The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is a friendly and tough breed. Friendly by nature, this dog will be sweet and loving with all people, including small children. This breed also gets along well with other animals in the family. Luckily, this breed does not bark often unless something feels like a threat. A distinct feature of this breed is how bold they are. This breed will never back down, but they are also not naturally aggressive. Often stubborn, the Olde Victorian Bulldogge can be difficult to train and so training should begin at a young age.
The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is relatively healthy especially compared to many other bulldog breeds. However, they have some infrequent health concerns, such as Entropian, cherry eye, and often their joints grow slowly. Their average life expectancy is 10-14 years.
The Olde Victorian Bulldogge, like many similar breeds, was created in an attempt to build a healthy bulldog. Carlos Woods, the breeder responsible, started his efforts back in 1988 by combining a number of different breeds, including American bulldogs, English Bulldogs, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is easy to groom with only a few needs. Brushing should be done even though their coat is smooth and sleek; frequent brushing or combing is necessary. Also important is cleaning their face wrinkles with a damp cloth every day. Exercise is also needed every day; the best form of exercise for this breed is a good walk.
The Olde Victorian Bulldogge is a sweet dog that is friendly with everyone including children and animals. Owners who do not want much grooming and who like to go on long walks will be the perfect match for this cute dog. Early training is required because of the breed’s stubborn nature. Great for living in an apartment, the Olde Victorian Bulldogge is calm in the house and does well in any climate.
