Yeah, one of the first things I read when doing my research. But still a little confused The History of both breed (APBT
and AMERICAN bulldog)...I know that the AST & APBT
were the same beed 70 or 80 years ago but for the sake of simplicity the APBT
will mean both here.
Argument and theory and claims:
Historians of the American Bulldogs believe this dog to be the Original bulldogs of England, what was known back then as Old English Bulldog.??
If that was true, then:
then would be an American Bulldog with Terrier cross 100s of year ago??
Pictures claimed to be of those early Bulldogs look more like the APBT
because of those old Pictures and painting of the old English bulldog I believe that what we call APBT
today were those dogs.
So it would seem to me that the American Bulldog borrowed the history of origin from the APBT
for whatever reason...is that a common thing inventing or stealing a history of certain dog??
This is very confusing trying figure out which came 1st. But I believe that the American bulldog is here today because of the APBTs...if there was no AST/APBT
then there would be no AMERICAN Bulldog.
