Depending on the Pit Bull’s appearance and what type of bulldog was the other parent, the appearance of the mix dog will vary.
- American bulldog mixes will have a slightly longer nose and leaner head, whereas English bulldog mixes may have a flatter muzzle and square head.
- American bulldog mixes may be taller than English bulldog mixes which tend to have much shorter legs.
- American bulldog mixes tend to be leaner, whereas English bulldog mixes may be more stout, like small barrels.
The temperament is hard to predict, but it’s not uncommon to see the stubborn side of either breed come out; both Pit Bulls and all types of bulldogs tend to be quite stubborn. The Pit Bull bulldog hybrid will more than likely be quite intelligent, loyal, protective, and hard-working. You may see boredom and behavioral problems if you don’t exercise the dog properly.
A Bulldog Pit Bull mix may be quite hardy, but with any mix, you may see the breed-prone illnesses. Hip dysplasia, skin allergies, and congenital heart disease may be seen.
With any mix breed dog, it’s hard to predict appearance, temperament, and health. You never know what you’re going to get. You may not see any bulldog in the mix, or you may not see any Pit Bull features. It’s really a toss-up, and unless you know that the dog is truly a mix of both breeds, it can be hard to determine the exact mix upon appearance alone.
