Olde English Bulldogge Puppies FAQs
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A deposit (all deposits are nonrefundable) can be put down on any puppy that is available, to hold that puppy until their release day. 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.
