Olde English Bulldogge Puppies FAQs


Home » Olde English Bulldogge Puppies FAQs
What is the difference between an English Bulldog and an Olde English Bulldogge?

The Olde English Bulldogge is slightly taller than the English Bulldog and much less extreme in terms of bulliness. The Olde English Bulldogge is also a much healthier animal, in that it doesn’t suffer from the numerous health problems of the English Bulldog. The Olde English Bulldogge males are free breeders and the females are free whelpers. This is in contrast to the English Bulldog where in many, if not most cases the females must be artificially inseminated to conceive, and then must deliver by cesarean section. At the Olde English Bulldogge Kennel Club we like to say that our dogs are the type of Bulldogges that the kids can take outside to play in the summertime, while most English Bulldogs must be kept indoors in the air conditioning.

What do you mean by rare colors?

We have a whole article about rare Olde English Bulldogge colors here.

I have a specific puppy I am looking for. How can you help me?

We would be happy to evaluate the possible genetic make up of your puppy based on our experience, education, and research.

What is the average life expectancy of an Olde English Bulldogge?

While this certainly depends on the care an animal receives such as veterinary care, vaccinations, exercise and nutrition, a good average would be 11 to 15 years.

How well do these dogs get along with children?

These dogs adore children, especially if they have been raised with them. Bear in mind that these dogs are bulldogges after all, and can be rough. As with any dog, playtime with small children should always be supervised.

How big will my dog get?

Males should be 16″ to 18″ tall at the withers and weigh 60 to 80 pounds. Females should be 15″ to 17″ tall at the withers and weigh 55 to 70 pounds.

Do Olde English Bulldogge’s get along well with other dogs?

It depends. As with any of the bully breeds, the Olde English Bulldogge does have a tendency toward same-sex dog aggression. They usually do very well with animals of the opposite sex. There are some things that can be done to try to minimize problems. First, all non-breeding stock should be spayed/neutered. Second, be certain that dogs of the same sex are at least one year apart in age. Third, introduce the Olde English Bulldogge as a puppy, not as an older dog. To summarize, it is not advisable to bring an Olde English Bulldogge into a situation where he/she will reside with a member of the same sex, who is of similar age and has not been spayed/neutered.

Do Olde English Bulldogges make good watch dogs?

Olde English Bulldogges are very capable dogs. They perform the duty of watch dog very well. That is, they are tuned in to their families. They are adept at alerting their families when something is not quite right so that appropriate action may be taken.

Do these dogs slobber profusely?

No. Unlike the English bulldog, Olde English Bulldogges don’t have a real slobbering problem. They are not as undershot as the English Bulldog and therefore don’t have as much “drainage.” Although, if you’re dressed up to go out for your anniversary dinner, you might not want to stand next to old Duke after a big chug of water.

How do I reserve a puppy?

The best way to start the adoption/purchase process is to put down a pick of the litter deposit. You can use this link to submit via PayPal. Only clients that have a deposit with us are contacted when we have pups on the way or available. Deposits are non-refundable. All pups start at $3200 breeding rights are not included. Pictures are taken of each litter of pups at 4 and 6 weeks of age. We do not honor any other photo requests for pups that are sold and waiting for their release day.
We work very hard to up hold our stellar reputation as an award-winning kennel of Olde English Bulldogges and the number one Olde English Bulldogge breeder in the south. As a result our pups are highly sought after. The breeding schedule for upcoming litters is posted and updated regularly on our home page. It is not likely a client will be able to get a puppy if they wait for the pups in any upcoming litter to reach 2 or 3 weeks of age. Most all our pups are spoken for before birth by clients who have put down a pick of the litter deposit.
Because we are a very very busy kennel, I am not able to contact you to “let you know we have pups available” if you have NOT put down a deposit. All clients that have placed a deposit are considered VIPs and have preference before any pups go on the market. Please follow my Facebook and check the website often I do update regularly.
Pick of the litter is offered to as an option on every litter. First pick through fourth pick deposit is $500. We send photos of the puppies at 9 days old.  The family has 48 hours to select a puppy or forfeit their choice.  If the person with the first pick option fails to select a puppy, the photos are sent to the family with second pick of the litter and so on. Selected pups are held for the buyer until pick up or shipping day at 8 weeks of age. The pick-of-the-litter deposit allows a family to choose a puppy before they are put on the market. Puppies are not held without a deposit (all deposits are nonrefundable). The balance is due at pick up or 8 weeks of age. All deposits can be applied to the adoption of any puppy up to two years after receipt.  Breeder reserves the right to choose pups for the breeding program before any first pick option.
