Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Q&A

Ask a Question

Do Alapaha blue dogs have any gentic promblems

If you stick with breeders that breed ful bred Alapaha's- without breeds like American Bulldogs, or Boxers mixed in- they only genetic problem that can excist is eyelid inversion. This breed was created by Lana Lou Lane out of Old Southern Whites (also called Old English/White English), the Catahoula Bulldog, and a small amount of the Colby Pitbull. For this reason, outcrosses can be done with these breeds. Any other breeds can cause genetic problems, like hip dysplacia. So just stick with full bred Alapaha's and ask breeders to confirm by E-mail that no other breeds were used in their breeding programs. This way, you can hold them accountable.


How is the dog with a smaller breed, like chihuahuas? I was thinking about getting a Alapaha pup and raise it with my dogs.

My ABBB was excellent around all animals except coons...When he was a pup he watched the coons on my porch run our cat off and he never forgot that. When he was older he ran the coons off so our cats could eat in peace. He died last year at 16....Still miss him!


I purchased an Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog about 2 months ago and through some networking I have found out my dogs parents are brother and sister. Should i be worried? He is registered, and is a part of the family. Should I watch for certain health issues?

Yes, if you plan to breed your dog, you should be concerned for defects in the pups. Who did you buy from?
