All about the American Bullnese

Posted by Edward Cruz on

 

Being a fan of short-nosed dogs and the bull breeds, Florida-born Robert E. Rice created the American Bullnese in the late 1980s. The American Bullnese is a combination of 5 different breeds, only two of which are the Pekingese and the French Bulldog. The three other breeds remain secret.  Rice insist that the American Bullnese did not came from the American Bulldog line.

The Bullnese breed have the appearance of an active and muscular dog. The breed is short and squat with a heavy head and upper body. With a pushed in face and lightly hanging jowls, these breed seems to be always smiling. Bullnese’s long body and short legs give it an adorable running hop. As for the short-coat, grooming the Bullnese is very easy. They only need an occasional bath and brushing.

American Bullnese usually weighs between 15 to 30 pounds and can grow up to 8.5 to 12 inches. They have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years. Typically a healthy breed, the Bullnese may suffer from corneal ulceration, hernia, pinched nostrils, and disk disease.
