The American Bulldog is a playful, energetic, and athletic breed. These dogs are also confident, agile, and extremely protective of both their human families and personal property. Although the breed is gentle and affectionate, it won’t hesitate to strike if an intruder threatens its home or family.
These dogs are excellent with children and do well with other pets as long as they are raised with them. They do require frequent exercise and plenty of engaging activity. Otherwise, they can become destructive. Because they’re so attached to their humans, they don’t do well when left alone for long periods.
These dogs slobber and drool, so they’re not great for anyone obsessed with housekeeping. They have a short, fine coat that only requires an occasional bath and brushing.
