Becoming familiar with The Bulldog Standard can help guide you in the right direction on buying a puppy. Read Here about our beloved Bulldog Breed and how a correct Bulldog should look and act.

There is also an Illustrated Standard with drawings of the correct Bulldog.

The Illustrated Standard of the Bulldog

Please be aware there are unscrupulous breeders who would love to sell you a puppy that is not a correct Bulldog.  Do not be scammed into buying a puppy for thousands of dollars extra because it is ‘Rare’ or a ‘New’ color.  The correct Bulldog will not be a Rare or New color.

Ethical Bulldoggers do not breed for color!

All other colors or markings are a disqualification. The merle pattern is a disqualification.  The eyes should be very dark.  Blue or green eye(s) or parti-colored eye(s) are a disqualification.
