In the early 1990s the" Australian Bulldog" started with the idea of creating a more functional bulldog suited to Australian conditions as well as an aim to recreate the "old style bulldog" similar to other overseas breeding programs.
The founders of the breed are Pip Nobes (Nobes lines) and Noel and Tina Green(Jag lines).
Breeds that were introduced to the breeding program were mainly British Bulldog, Boxer, English Bull Terrier, Bullmastiff and later Joe Cauchi added American Bulldog into some lines .
The first breeding record book was kept by Pip Nobes in 1997 incorporating both Nobes and Jag(Greens)lines, this later was split into two registers. The Australian Bulldog Society Inc register is an unbroken continuation of the original register.
In 1998 the Australian Bulldog featured on a popular lifestyle show introducing the breed to the public.
The Australian Bulldog Society Inc (www.australianbulldogsociety.com)was started by a group of enthusiasts who felt that a properly constituted, non for profit organisation, incorporating all lines off the Australian Bulldog was needed to promote this wonderful new breed and also lobbying the ANKC for recognition of the breed in future years in full accordance with ANKC regulations.

Grooming- The short coat is easy to groom with a firm bristle brush.Bath when necessary, wipe wrinkles on face over with a face washer when needed.

Exercise- The Australian Bulldog enjoys a good walk but doesn't need to be exercised everyday as long as they spend time with their "family", they enjoy playing fetch or playing under the sprinkler.

Health- Overall a breed with far fewer health problems than its British forefathers. For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
