History

A similar dog to the Alpine Dachsbracke was utilized as a hunting dog in ancient times. Between the years of 1881 and 1885, Crown Prince Rudolf of Habsburg required that Alpine Dachsbracken be included on his hunting trips. The breed was officially recognized in 1932 in Austria as the third breed of Scenthound. Austria is still considered to be the Alpine Dachsbracke’s country of origin.


The ABM, as currently registered with the WWKC is a mix breed with no recognizable standard. F1 out crosses are not part of any breed. The dogs are bred somewhat to type, but that is all. There is no "origin" for the breed, it's a mix of APBT, DDB, Rottweiler, Mastiff and others.

Maintenance

American Bull Molossers enjoy a daily brushing, but it is not necessary. A bath in mild shampoo on a monthly basis will be sufficient. As with any other dog, the American Bull Molosser needs his teeth cleaned and his nails trimmed on a regular basis.

Ideal Environment

American Bull Molossers need a tidy, stable, healthy environment. This being said, the breed is capable of living in any size of living situation. A yard is ideal, but frequent walks and other forms of exercise can make up for the excessive time spent indoors. Obedience training is especially helpful and important for the well-being and happiness of this breed.
