Animal Scene - - COVER STORY - By JURICA BUEN­VI­AJE Pho­tos by JEF­FREY C. LIM

t’s easy to be­come in­tim­i­dated by the Amer­i­can Bull­dog – their stocky and mus­cu­lar build, fierce look, and badass rep­u­ta­tion are enough rea­sons for any­one to feel cau­tious around them. Cou­ple those char­ac­ter­is­tics with their strength and agility, and in­deed, they can be quite threat­en­ing. Amer­i­can Bull­dogs are the tallest and big­gest among all bull­dog breeds. Ac­cord­ing to Dog­time. com, they could grow as tall as 20 to 28 inches and weigh up to 60 to 120 pounds by the time they be­come adults, with males be­ing gen­er­ally larger than fe­males. Be­yond their in­tim­i­dat­ing ap­pear­ance, Amer­i­can bull­dogs are sweet, pro­tec­tive, and are as loyal as much as the next pooch. Car­ing for these in­tel­li­gent and strong-willed dogs can be quite chal­leng­ing at first, but with proper train­ing, they can be the most af­fec­tion­ate and lov­ing fam­ily com­pan­ions: gen­tle gi­ants in their own right.
