It looks like someone mixed a Boxer, Am Bully, and Olde English Bulldog, sorta. Looks interesting. Like a lean gargoyle. Never heard of them before, though.
they are suppose to be a recreation of what the english bull dog use to look like
but can they work? that's what im curious about
Just going off looks, I would say those little guys would have a tough time on a hog. Short legged, short nosed heat stroke waiting to happen. You might get one to catch but he's going to have a tough time keeping his feet on a taller hog, and catching one in water would be rough too. I'm not saying it could never happen, just that I've never seen it. There are plenty of small catch dogs out there getting it done but they usually look a lot like a small APBT in build.
Not saying they couldn't do it, because I have zero experience with them, but they're just not my bag.
It's all guessing on my part really, I could be completely wrong. I'm just going off looks and have never seen one of these guys in real life.
when Riot was a pup my neighbor would bring his OEB down and they would romp all over the yard while we sat on the patio and drank beer. iowa summers tend to be pretty hot, and very humid and despite his smashed face that dog did pretty darn good. he didn't seem to be bothered by 90+ degree days, and kept up with an active 1yr old APBT for hours...something im sure an AKC EB couldn't do.I love those compact little bulldogs - but I don't even want a dog who can't work in the heat without fear of dying. Sure, they are better off than most English Bulldogs, but I can imagine they still have a hard time. I've heard otherwise, though.
Compare one of these guys to this :
BA is pretty average size and build for a catch dog
Usually I try and cut him loose as close to the bay as possible, but he may have to run a hundred yards or better sometimes and still have gas enough to catch and hold until I can wrestle my way through the cedars to him. Going off looks alone, I don't have a lot of confidence the Olde's could pull it off.
