Created by David Leavitt of the United States in the 1970's, the Olde English Bulldogge is a new and quite rare re- creation of a breed of bulldog that existed in England during the early nineteenth century.

Leavitt's goal was to create a breed with the looks of the bulldog from the 1700's and with the temperament of the modern English Bulldog yet without the many ailments and health afflictions that plague English Bulldogs. The Olde English Bulldogge is currently not recognized by any major kennel clubs.
