I mean you need to choose your breed first based on temperament and second in appearence.

I would put exercise and mental stimulation requirements well above appearance. Have you ever actually met an American Bulldog? Can you understand where my concern comes from in that you originally came here asking about X and Y breeds that are completely different from one another, you wanted them based on their appearance, then you claimed to want a medium sized breed that was NOT a guard dog and now suddenly you've decided you want an AB, which is a (usually) large guardian breed?

I understand what you are saying... Thanks for your advice i appreciate your help and all your posts.
I want to learn thats why im asking.

i have not seen any AM , i have amstaff. The misunderstood was my issue so forget it, as i said she will be raised in yard and then in apartment.

im very willing to learn how to train my dog and read about it thats why im reasearching from now months before i buy one!

My bad talking about guard and watch dog, my bad not knowing there are medium and large dog and considering them as one.

The only think i know is that i can work with breeds till 70 cm , with no frequent grooming needs and no excesive drooling! Of course not a proved aggressive breed. I dont bother walking/playing every day with her X hours or work with energetic dogs!

Im looking for breeds all day!!!

Wow..You want a dog but wouldn't bother walking or playing with? What the hell is the point in getting a dog then? Might as well have a pet rock.

Alright, to narrow your search, you're looking for a wash and wear, medium breed, up to 27 inches that will stay under 50lbs, none guardian breed, that doesn't drool, and has a low activity level.
Is all of that correct?

Broken English. Pretty sure what he meant to say was "I don't mind" or "I'm not bothered with."

There are , to my understanding, three sizes or classification of Ambullies, have you given that breed any consideration ?

Yes , if there are :p such breeds... The low activity is not a problem, it can be high too it doesn't matter!

ambullies?? American bulldogs?? I know about scott type etc, if you mean this..

No, I mean an American Bully. There are 3 sizes, the smallest might qualify for what you are looking for.
American Bully and American Bulldog are 2 different breeds.

Yes thats a great breed although i didn't know it. I wouldn't go with short sized but medium or large should be good!

shorthair medium/large sized dogs :p

Yes , if there are such breeds...

Aside from activity level (both of these breeds need a moderate amount of exercise), an Azawakh or Sloughi would fit.
 
The issue for me is that k havent seen any American bulldog and i cant imagine how big it is.

is it like a boxer or bigger , like a german shepherd?

I saw the two breeds you told me , dont like either :/ , i need a dog with face like boxer bulldog something like this , since my childhood i wanted a dog like this, "ugly" , i think these dogs are the prettiests.

dont bother i cant make you decide for me , i will do it but every con i hear about breeds make me think again!!

There's 4 actually. Pocket, Classic, Standard, XL

XL, or the extreme don't fit into the OP's requested requirements.
I was more or less trying to direct the OP to a sound animal that might fit his height and weight requirements.

I got timed out -

I tried to add:

FYI - I have always wondered about the America Bull Dog drool question: I was under the impression the Johnson types were big droolers, the Scott type not so much - any truth to that?

Depends on the dog. Most of the so-called "Scott type" (standard) ABs I've known, and I've known quite a few, have drooled and slobbered, just not to the extent that the average Saint Bernard or Mastino Napoletano does.

Good to know. I had a Basset Hound - who was on the smaller side - supposedly had a drier mouth than most - but still - if she laid her head down long enough - eventually the area underneath it was soaked. And I had to crawl around the house on my hands and knees scraping dried drool with pieces of food and...stuff...off the walls once a week from when she shook her head...so...I'd rather not do that again if I can help it.

I don't know what Tonka is. Her paperwork says American Bulldog mix. She is 55 lbs and can be quite drooly when she drinks water. She is very strong and needs quite a bit of exercise. She also needs to be bathed a couple of times per week. She is much mellower than the 45. Lb male Boxer we had years ago. He was a wild one. I took him to alot of training classes. I took him to the Police Academy to get evaluated and he got out of his collar and got them really mad.
