Hi, My name is Lonnie Dryden. I had the privilege of working with Ray Altman in the early stages of the Altman White English breed. We worked for Many hours trying to get the breed to what it is today. I have been raising bulldogs for over 35 years.
From the Beginning of the Altman White English Bulldogs:
Developed by Ray Altman of Waycross, Georgia, this powerful American breed is a reconstruction of the “White Old English” strain of working bulldogs of the 19th century. The Altman White English Bulldog is a dedicated farm watchdog and can be employed to drive and control cattle, as well as for hunting large game, thanks to it's agility, tenacity and courage. Broad Chested, wide-headed and straight-backed, this muscular canine is truly an impressive working Molosser.
The Altman White English Bulldog has been around for a numder of years. About 21 years ago we (Lonnie Dryden) and Ray Altman started this line. We started out by trying to lower the Health problems that the regular Englsih bulldog have. We took a White English Bulldog and a regular AKC English Bulldog (Dusty's Georgia Bull) and mixed them together. From the two was started what we call today the Altman White English Bulldog. They are registered CKC-Altman White English Bulldog.
They are purbred.
Their weight is around 55 to 70 lbs. and the average height is around 15 to 20 inches. They come in many colors. This line to this day is very different. I have owned them for over 20 years myself. Their temperment is great. They can take the Southern Heat and the Nothern Colds. They love to play outdoors and in the water. They are a little taller, and their noses are a little longer than the English Bulldog. That is why they can take the heat and cold better. As far as other Health problems I have never had ANY health problems that weren't associated with owning ANY dog.
All of the puppies that I sell online are from my personal stock of Altman's. We only breed our females ONCE a year.
