American Bulldog

These hardy dogs were initially bred as work dogs on farms for their innately protective nature, making them afraid of nothing.

American Bully

These stocky, low-to-the-ground hounds are as muscular as they come, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they could survive an artillery round like a tank.

Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog

Although they have the same protective nature and approach to strangers as the Amstaff, the Alapaha is far better with kids. They’re also very loud and proud pups and aren’t afraid to alert the family of any danger.

Ambullneo Mastiff

For an Italian version of the classic Bullmastiff, the Ambullneo Mastiff is as gentle with children as they are protective and oftentimes unstoppable.
