Home / Term / A / Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog

The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is certainly the most affectionate guard dog you’ll ever find. Originally bred near the Alapaha River in Southern Georgia, this special breed of the bulldog has a very interesting history. The Ol Plantation Bulldog of the south was dying out and in a bid to rescue it; the Alapaha Blue dog came by.

It weighs about 70 to 100pounds for males and 50 to 75 pounds for females. Predominantly white, it could have blue, black or even chocolate markings. Its eyes could be blue or brown. It is a stocky dog – very muscular but doesn’t drool despite its appearance.

The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is a quick learner and can be trained easily. It is not particularly active when it is in-doors but a large enclosed backyard may be sufficient for its exercising because it is a moderately athletic dog.

 It can be really playful and it has an amazing temperament. Asides guarding brilliantly, it gets on very well with children. Being loyal to their owners, they can fight to the death to protect them. Although generally healthy, the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog can suffer from skin disorders and cherry eyes as well as hip dysplasia.
