Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog | Rarest Bulldog Breeds In The World

Some believe the Old English Bulldog is the ancestor of this breed, which was brought to America in the 18th century. They were used in blood sports like bull baiting and bear baiting.

In 1835, blood sports like bull baiting were banned by law. Later on, they were used by cattle and pig herders to catch pigs.

This breed has existed in the United States for more than 200 years as a working dog, but there was no document of this breed's standard.

A group of bulldog lovers from Southern America began to preserve the bulldog breed in 1979 because the number of breeds had rapidly declined.

In 1979, these groups gave the name to this breed as the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, and to maintain the breed standard and documentation, they founded the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Association.

The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is also known by a few other names: Otto, Cowdog, Catahoula Bulldog, and Silver Dollar.
