Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Info. Page !
Alapaha (pronounced a-lop-a-ha) Blue Blood Bulldogs are plantation dogs from the south and named after the Alapaha river in Georgia. They are derived from the Old English bulldogs that arrived in the U.S in the late 1700's and Catahoula Curs (Catahoula leopard dogs). Females range in size from 50-70 lbs. and males go between 70-90 lbs. They are very rare. They are Old time plantation dogs and were used as companions and farm dogs, protecting the plantation and workers, guarding the family from intruders as well as protecting the livestock against preditors, herding and holding unruly cattle and catching wild hogs. They do not have the health issues and breathing problems of the English bulldog. They also live 12-15 years; whereas, the English bulldog lives 6-9 years. They are protective of their family and domain yet very friendly once they know you accept the visitor. Photos of our Alapaha's are posted below. They all come from champion bloodlines !
