Do they drool?

    Hello, does this breed drool? And how much :p

    Im between staffordshire and american bulldog and i want to know it before buying!

    Yes, they often drool. How much depends on the individual dog. Are you still trying to choose a dog based on appearance? AmStaffs are American Bulldogs have VERY different temperaments, and whether they drool or not is the least of the potential issues if you don't do REAL, thorough research before you even think about buying a dog.

    Yes i know they are different breeds with different characteristics but i think im going for an american bulldog. Drooling is a problem because she will live in apartment.

    Why is that a problem? I lived with two Great Danes in a 600 square foot apartment. I keep a highly absorbent mat under the water bowl and that stops 90% of drool from getting all over the floor. Whether it's drool, hair, or dirt tracked in on paws, there is always going to be some mess associated with having a dog, that's just life.

    I've never met a dog that won't drool from time to time. It's often behavioral or health related.

    An American Bulldog in an apartment. Doable, but wouldn't be my first choice. I thought you said you didn't want a "guardy" breed.

    I will raise her till 1 year in my parents house with yard and after that she will go to apartment. Forget about the guardian and watchdog.

    drooling like boxer is a problem , i dont want every single breath to be a drool in my feet...

    the only problem for me is that i dont know the exact size of the dog, i have seen amstaff but not bulldog , i know the size only as number

    I hate drool too, I love the fact mine does not at all, and that he does not huff all the time. He is neither the breeds you mentioned but I would have thought Amstaffs on the whole were not a drooly breed ?

    My pup only drools when I am eating or making him work for a treat. He gets a bunch of saliva all over his saggy lips (where his tounge can't reach), after eating his meal and drinking water he makes a huge mess. I make him drink water on patio in summer.

    Thinking about it neither of those breeds drool nor do boxers, Uno is right it would be a health related issue. Neapolitan mastiff or a Saint Bernard are more likely to drool, bull dogs, no.

    Bulldogs drool. Almost every AmBulldog (both major types) I've met has drooled. Mine drooled. Not sure why people are under the impression that they don't.

    Yes they drool but i hope not like boxers do!! :) can you post some photos of your dog?

    I like scott type more.

    I guess it is luck of the draw then, again I have not known a boxer that drools, admittedly that is only about half a dozen and the few American Bulldogs I know don't either, although I always imagine them shaking and slobber going everywhere.
    And I lied mine can drool it just takes a bit of work
    If I had a dog that permanently had this stuff hanging from its jowls it would have to live outside.

    So this would be a no-go? Just fed the dane and a post meal head shake left this on the freezer

    Nope, sorry. I put the dog down due to an unstable temperament (unfortunately not uncommon in ABs) and archived all of the photos I had.

    My cousins boxers drooled, horribly, worse if there anything remotly edible around. As do the am bulldogs i know.
    Its been three weeks since we lost gage, im still finding slingers around from him, lol, like the danes.

    That is a no go lol, but nothing being fed outside wouldn't fix.

    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]Come on it is not ideal, I think it is a valid question when choosing a dog.

    Hmmm unstable even if socialized properly? Thats going to "cons" for sure!

    What about scott type size? I cant imagine how tall they are, 50-70 cm but if you dont see him live you cant understand. Its a really big breed?

    Yes dogeatdog thanks, is it going my AM to be like this????

    Socialization doesn't fix inherited temperament. Of course not all ABs are unstable, not even close, but it's becoming more common as the breed becomes more popular, sadly in part due to the same types of unethical, toxic people getting into that breed that are typically attracted to the American Bully.

    Size can vary quite a bit in purebred ABs. They can be big, but this is where doing a lot of research and picking a breeder whose goal it is to breed moderately sized dogs comes into play. Most of the nicer, moderate ABs I've seen come from working kennels. Those dogs (in fact, even most "pet" ABs) need A LOT of physical exercise and mental stimulation or they WILL become destructive, and many are stubborn and not particularly biddable. I personally wouldn't recommend them as a breed for a first time dog owner who hasn't VERY thoroughly researched the breed, and absolutely not for someone who is primarily interested in appearance.

    I understand what you are saying but i cant get a poodle only because its a good breed for first time owner. I mean you need to choose your breed first based on temperament and second in appearence. You cant eliminate neither of them!

    Bulldogs and amstaffs are friendly family dogs , as a base characteristic and after that they have a lot of differences but thats the basic for me!

    so between the two of them i think i have to choose based on appearence.

    i had another dog for 1.5 years , a poodle mix some years ago... So somehow its not my first dog
