Banter Bulldogge Description
They are an extremely powerful breed with a muscular build. They have large square heads that are strong. They have very muscular jaws. Their coats are short and smooth. Coat colors include, but are not limited to, fawn, black, and brindle. They have drop ears that are often cropped at birth. The Banter Bulldogge is a very new breed. It dates back only to the late 1990s. Todd Tripp from Southeast Ohio developed the breed. Mr. Tripp was trying to recreate the Brabanter Bullenbeisser of the 1700s that was found in the central Belgium province known as Brabant.
This breed is used mostly for companionship and is often compared to the very popular Boxer breed of dog. The breed is equipped to pull large amounts of weight and have a keen hunting sense.
The Banter Bulldogge, despite its aggressive look, has a wonderful and well rounded temperament. They are loyal and extremely affectionate. They are quite easy to train. They have proved to be great with children of all ages. They make excellent family pets. They do have a very loud and deep bark. Their bark coupled with their appearance makes them wonderful guard dogs. That said, there is little to no aggression associated with this breed and they would be far more likely to lick a trespasser than to bite them.
There are no known health problems associated with this breed. Because they are such a new breed very little studies have been conducted on their overall health but it is believed by their breeders that they are among some of the healthiest breeds of dog around.
