Known as the English White, Southern White, Georgia Giant and American Pit Bulldog in years past, now commonly known as the American Bulldog, or Johnson American Bulldog. The Johnson American Bulldog is a large, powerful breed. Males range between 23 - 28 inches tall and 95 -150 pounds. Females range between 20 - 26 inches tall and 70 - 130 pounds. Considering their size, it's surprisingly a very athletic breed. Their coat is thin and short. The color of the coat varies from solid white to white with random markings to mostly colored with white markings. The most common color of the markings is brindle which can be in many shades, from light brown to black and anything in between. These colored markings can also be solid. The only pure solid color without any markings is white. There is no way to plan the color or size of any pup before its birth. The color and size vary greatly even with pups in the same litter. This is a very intelligent breed that I have found easy to train. Their temperament is stable. The breed as a whole is very well put together with a massive solid frame ripping with muscle from nose to tail. The history of the Johnson American Bulldog is a controversial issue, unaided by the many twists & turns of truth from various misguided individuals. In saying this, my position is firm that the Johnson American Bulldogs are true descendants of the old time Bulldog that lived in England as far back as 600 - 700 years ago. Various drawing and lithographs of Bulldogs from the 1600 - 1700's depict a large muscled bodied, straight long legged and tailed dog with a square head and an undershot jaw. The only difference that can be detected from these drawing is a thicker and slightly longer coat which is expected due to the difference in climate between England and the Southeastern United States. When looking at these drawings there is no doubt that the dogs depicted and the present day Johnson American Bulldogs are very closely related or even one in the same. Writings from even earlier times about the Bulldogs of England also do a good job in describing the Johnson American Bulldog. This is the Bulldog that was used in the development of many other breeds such as the American Pit-Bull Terrier, the Boxer & the Bull Mastiff to name a few. The history of these dogs back in England is quite interesting. Mainly they were gladiators of cruel blood sports. The sport of Bullbaiting was the favorite of many, thus the name Bulldog. They were also pitted against themselves and watching two Bulldogs fight to the death was a main source of entertainment. As you can imagine only the strongest and fastest Bulldogs would survive. Breedings between such animals would produce pups of high demand. Centuries of breeding in this fashion produced a dog of unequaled strength. As dog fighting and bullbaiting became outlawed in England the popularity of the original Bulldog decreased to the point of now being extinct in England. This breed was saved from extinction by English settlers who brought them to the United States and utilized them as working farm dogs in the Southeastern states. The jobs of these dogs were demanding, they protected live stock from man or beast, they would drive live stock and when necessary catch a stray. It was also their job to let anything living know that they will make certain of their masters well being. During the end of World War II the numbers of these dogs were quickly diminishing and facing another brush with extinction. If not for the efforts of Mr. John D. Johnson and his family, this GREAT breed would have become permanently extinct. Until recently the breed went virtually unknown and is still considered rare, although substantial gain in its popularity is inevitable due to its incredible traits. The protection instincts of these dogs have been instilled in them for hundreds of years making them natural protectors. As guard dogs they are the best on the planet and dominate in this field, this is known world-wide. The Johnson American Bulldog is a criminals worst nightmare. If you are ever faced with danger, they will literally fight to their death on your behalf. When challenged in this fashion they possess a level of ferocity, and a willingness to conquer that is legendary. They will bond very tightly to you and your family with a strong devotion towards loyalty. This starts at a very young age, and I beleiev this has a lot to do with why they take their protection of their family so seriously. Because of the incredible power of this breed we strongly recommend that you have your pup obedience trained at an early age by a professional trainer. Take the time before your pup arrives to find a highly recommended trainer with good standing in your community. Although this may be quite expensive, it's well worth it and does a world of good for the dog. We strongly advise against protection or attack training this breed of dog unless you are positive the training is done by a competent trainer who has experience working with Bull breeds. You have to remember that these dogs are born with protection instincts that were instilled in them for hundreds of years that work quite adequately and are more than enough for protecting you, your family and property. A Bulldog from good stock, if worth its salt will protect naturally, no training necessary! Any type of aggressive behavior should not be encouraged. We believe that the best American Bulldogs in the world are without any question from pure Johnson bloodlines. When you see one, there is no mistaking what your looking at! Small or large the Johnson dogs possess true American Bulldog traits! We are dedicated in preserving this breed in its original state. We will breed only pure Johnson American Bulldog lines to the standard that Mr. Johnson established with Alen Scott in 1972. Our breeding program is small but will produce high quality American Bulldogs down from some of the best American Bulldogs ever like, the Incredible Mean Machine, Mean Machine, Red Machine, Aristocrat, Machine Brutis, Bo Donald(Big Buck), Elrod and all females descending from Collette, Sugar Tuffie, Sugar Doll and Rose.
