The american pit bull terrier and olde english bulldog have an interesting connection. While the OEB is a reimagining of the original bulldog, Pit Bull Historian Richard Stratton, asserts that the American Pit Bull is the direct descendent of the original bulldog. Despite, this historical connection the breeds are not two sides of the same coin, in regards to being a pet. The American Pit Bull is a high energy working dog, that needs a competent and experienced owner. The olde english bulldog is a healthy and active dog which is suitable for an inexperienced but engaged owner.

The Olde English Bulldogge is a recently created American dog breed. In the 1970’s David Leavitt embarked upon recreating the healthier working bulldog of the early 19th century. To do this Mr. Leavitt crossed english bulldogs, american bulldogs, american pit bull terriers, and bullmastiff. This resulted in an athletic and healthy bulldog similar to the Old english bulldogs.


The Olde is generally healthier than many of the modern Bulldog Breeds. However, because they are a recent recreation, for the most part created from many of the modern bulldog breeds, many of the same bulldog disorders affect the Olde but at a much less rate of occurrence. With responsible breeding programs and proper testing the general health of the Olde should only be improving.


Olde English Bulldogges are docile, but capable and protective, fearless and athletic, fierce-looking, determined and courageous, bold and friendly around their family and friends. The Olde is a fearless adversaries to anyone who threatens their masters or property. In the family setting they are also amazing couch potatoes and relatively easy to control.


Olde English Bulldogges will adapt to any lifestyle home with a large yard or apartment living. Like most breeds it is advisable to routinely walk your Olde twice a day. The breed is hearty but should be from extreme weather conditions. Too hot or too cold is not ideal for the breed.


  • AMERICAN pit bull terrier originated in England

    olde ENGLISH bulldog originated in America


    • Keelancob. 12 it was originally from england but then it changed into the modern bulldog with loads of health problems and are not as workable. The old breed was recreated in America

  • Rare to find a good you tube vid these days. I’ve had English and now have an olde. I think you hit the mark and I agree with your insights on the pits. Thanks and I’ll be watching more.

  • Awesome channel. So much info.
    Love to see love for our Pitties

  • I think many had knew which was the original bulldog without even having to watch the video. A lot of folks have tried to do recreations of the original working and bull baiting bulldogs (such as the Olde English bulldogge) and don’t do too swell a job of recreating it. I personally wonder why they do not do as swell a job when we have the original bulldog with us to pull inspiration from. Though I believe if folks want the original working bulldog, maybe they should be breeding American Pit bulldogs instead of trying to remake them. If anyone wants to see how original working bulldogs are suppose to be like and be designed like, they only need look at the American Pit bulldog breed. That is what a working/purpose bulldog designed for gripping large game as well as warring (fighting) dogs for bull baiting should look like. Another author and historian, Diane Jessup, also believes they are the original bulldog. Like dog professional, author, and breed historian Diane Jessup writes:
    “First a hunter, then a butcher’s dog, then a baiter, then a dog fighter, only for the past 150 years or so have bulldogs been bred for going against each other. American Pit Bulls which display behavior typical of their heritage are gripping dogs; they come from a long, long genetic history which dictates they get a hold and HANG ON! This behavior saved their life during the thousands of years they were hunting boar, stag and bear, and also stood them in good stead when they moved on to working bulls, bears and other animals in baiting sports. This same behavior can work to make breaking up a fight quite easy and safe. The Pit Bull is a bulldog in action and appearance. He is a gripping dog – not a terrier (which means Earth dog which pursues its quarry underground). The English bulldog is a relatively recently developed animal designed strictly for the show ring. In fact, English bulldogs were not even created until several years AFTER bull baiting (the purpose for which it was supposed to have been bred) was banned and discontinued in the United Kingdom. So, it is impossible for the Pit Bull to have been developed from a breed younger than itself. In fact, the English bulldog is developed from the original working bulldog – the Pit Bull. Written Pit Bull pedigrees date into the late 1700’s. The history of the Pit Bull far predates the time when bans on bull baiting caused blood sport fanciers to turn to fighting dog against dog.”
