History

The Beabull is known as a designer breed rather than a purebred. The Beabull is a cross between a Beagle and an English Bulldog. This breed is a loving dog, playful and physically strong. They are independent and can be stubborn. Their origins are not well documented, but it is thought they were developed about 20 years ago. Although not recognized by the American Kennel Club because they are not purebred dogs

old english bulldogThis is an extinct dog breed. It is believed that the dog came from ancient dogs such as the old Mastiff. The Old English Bulldog was the original English Bulldog but quite different from the modern variety, with longer legs as well as a longer muzzle and more aggressive.

It is believed that the Old English Bulldog was the ancestor to many breeds and there have been efforts to recreate the Old English Bulldog, bringing about quite a few new Bulldog breeds. Records are actually unclear as to its origins and when you read up on its ancestry, you see that a lot of the information is conflicting.

A number of breeders have attempted to recreate this extinct breed with some success, but it must be borne in mind that these recreations aren’t the Old English Bulldog, as the genetics of it are extinct.

Description

The first generations of the Beabulls are a 50-50 mix, but most of the breed today are multigenerational dogs. This means a Beabull is mixed with another Beabull to try to create a purebred over time. Most of the Beabulls are a mixture and are very unpredictable in their looks and characteristics, depending upon which of the original parent breeds they favor most. Many will retain the wrinkles, short legs, underbite and short tail of the Bulldog. Others will have the long droopy ears and long muzzles of the Beagle. Most will have coarse, short coats and shed quite a bit. They are medium to large depending upon which size Beagle is used in the crossing.

old english bulldog puppyThis dog is extinct but he used to be a fairly broadly set, muscular dog, taller than the bulldog of today.

The average height of this dog was 36 – 40cm, weighing in at about 18 to 22kg. One of the dog’s more noticeable characteristics was his lower jaw that projected quite a bit in front of the upper jaw. The dog was deep-chested, the head broad and the nose and muzzle short.

The breed was developed for bull baiting, but in England, with the adoption of the Act of cruelty to animals, there was a decline in the interest for the dog, leading to it becoming extinct. There are old paintings from the 1800s and one such painting, Crib and Rosa, gives an idea of the form and size of the Old English Bulldog.

Temperament:

The regular English Bulldog today is often confused with the Old English Bulldog but it is a far sweeter breed than the Old English Bulldog. It is believed that the Old English Bulldog was an aggressive dog, bred to be this way because of his role in bull baiting.

As a pet though, brought up as a companion, he no doubt would have made a loving, loyal pet.

Health Problems

Although most Beabulls will not have inherited health problems there are some issues they are all prone to: • Bloat – can be fatal if not addressed immediately – inverted digestive organs. • Hip Dysplasia – can cause lameness. • Canine Disk Disease – can cause paralysis, loss of legs. • Hypothyroidism • Ear infections – keep them clean. • Patellar Luxation – floating kneecaps – can cause lameness. • Reverse Sneezing

old english bulldog dogThis dog, although extinct would have battled with common dog illnesses that can still be seen in the modern bulldog today.

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome:

Brachycephalic airway syndrome is all about upper airway abnormalities and can be quite a problem in your Old English Bulldog because of the shortened muzzle of these breeds. These particular dogs have a smaller upper jaw and an overcrowding of of teeth and you will see that effort is required to inhale. They breathe more easily through the mouth then the nose. They have noisy breathing, particularly during exercise and in hot weather.

Cherry Eye:

Dogs have 3 eyelids, and cherry eye is the term used for prolapsed nictitating membrane, or the 3rd eyelid, when the eyelid comes out of place and you get a pink mass. It is a common condition found in Bulldogs, a genetic problem where surgical intervention or medicine may be recommended.

Caring The Pet

1.Feeding the puppy – Don’t overfeed due to tendency for obesity and don’t feed right before or after exercise due to threat of bloat. Feed 3-4 meals per day a total of 1.5 cups in a day. 2.Feeding the adult - Don’t overfeed due to tendency for obesity and don’t feed right before or after exercise due to threat of bloat. Feed 3-4 meals per day a total of 3 cups in a day. 3.Points for Good Health no hereditary issues 4. Games and Exercises – both the laziness of the Bulldog and the scent driven energy or the Beagle can be seen in the Beabull. They have short bursts of the Beagles hyperness. Enjoy playing fetch and participating in agility. They need a daily 45-60 minute walk.

old english bulldog puppiesIf the Old English Bulldog were still around today, you would have cared for him like you would most other dogs -

Feed your Old English Bulldog puppy 4 times a day with high quality puppy food.

At 6 months of age you can be giving your young dog 2 meals a day.

Commercially manufactured food is fine if its a high quality one. Always check out the top 5 ingredients on the packaging – the first 2 should be protein or meat. Follow a simple, consistent diet to minimize symptoms. Your adult dog can have kibble and sometimes you can add in chopped boiled chicken, brown rice and vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots and spinach. A little bit of raw meat can also be added to the kibble once in a while. Never leave your dog without a constant supply of fresh, cool water.

Even though the dog is extinct, dog owners of that time would have had to watch their dogs for ticks and fleas and any of the common dog illnesses of that time.

The dog would have had some kind of grooming – a brush down a couple of times and he would have been checked for ear and eye infections.

Characteristics

1.Children friendliness – Very good with children. 2.Special talents intelligent and many with a great sense of smell. 3.Adaptability – They can live anywhere in an apartment or a home with a yard. 4.Learning ability – Very intelligent but with a stubborn, independent streak that is inherent in both parental breeds.

old english bulldog dogsNot much information is available on this extinct dog. Perhaps because of his history of being used for bull baiting, he wouldn’t have made a good family pet as he was too aggressive. He wouldn't have been a good choice for a first time dog owner and he wouldn't have been a good choice of pet for children.

He was possibly owned by a single person who made money from him. Small wonder then that he became extinct when he was no longer required for this role.
