Aylestone Bulldog

Bulldog Breeds

Description:

"Aylestone Bulldogs", or "Old Aylestonians", a strain of dog which is similar to the original Bulldog. They are also commonly called "Old Tyme Bulldogues". They have the character of a British Bulldog - its zany nature, friendliness and sociability - without the health and vitality problems they so often have. Aylestonians look very much like a British, but they are longer in the leg so can play football or go swimming without becoming tired, have a longer muzzle so they don't have problems breathing, and are much more athletic.



Aylestone Bulldog

What we are doing is breeding a bulldog that has the character of a British Bulldog - its zany nature, friendliness and sociability - without the health and vitality problems they so often have. Aylestonians are longer in the leg than a British Bulldog, so can play football or go swimming without becoming tired, have a longer muzzle so they don't have problems breathing, and are much more athletic. The Breed Standard is the place to look for specific information on Aylestones. We breed two strains, Royal and Standard. The Royals are taller and heavier than the Standards, and Royal bitches make excellent mothers.

It is the strict desire of the breed’s originator that the same misrecognition of breeding standards that have produced the ill fated Kennel Club bulldog does not befall his creation. This guideline should be used by all wishing to contribute to the breed’s consistency. General Description The Aylestone bulldog is recognised through two lines: the Royal and the Standard. They are two branches of the same family. While the size difference of these two strains separates them in height and weight, general appearance should demonstrate continuity. The ideal Aylestone bulldog is a loyal, courageous, tenacious and stubborn dog with a large powerful head and athletic muscular body. The Aylestone bulldog should be capable of feats of agility while remaining sturdy and powerful in appearance. The Aylestone Bulldog exudes vitality and health. He should be capable of exercise with none of the breathing issues that afflict his Kennel Club relative. Male Aylestone bulldogs should be able to breed unassisted while all females should self-whelp. Bitches requiring caesarian deliveries should not be bred from; nor should any Aylestone manifesting any inherited mental or physical problems. Their lifespan is between 10 and 14 years. Temperament The Aylestone bulldog is above all else a family pet; his temperament should reflect this requirement. The Aylestone's disposition should be outgoing, bold and confident. While a watchful nature may be expected at home, physical aggression towards humans without provocation is not tolerated and has not been bred for. He is intelligent but stubborn. He can be trained to a high standard of agility and obedience by an owner displaying stronger willpower. The Aylestone should reflect the best of what has come to be known as the bulldog spirit; stubborn, courageous; trustworthy and stable. He is a family man. Not the Rambo of the dog world. Head The head should be large, wide and wrinkled. Ears are favoured rose but natural and button are accepted. The snout must be broad with open nostrils with no sign of air restriction. The nose should not be pushed up between the eyes. From the stop to the end of the nose must be at least one and one half inches. The bottom jaw should be undershot in the manner of the traditional bulldog. Narrowness of head and overshot mouthed dogs should be considered at fault and not bred from. Neck Short to medium in length and very muscular flowing into the shoulders and should not be set on the dog so it appears to stop at the shoulders. Chest and Forequarters Should be well sprung (rounded) and the chest wide and deep. Depth of chest should be at least to the elbows. Narrow chested dogs should be considered at serious fault. The forelegs must be strong and well boned, and will appear straight from all angles. Body Should be square and balanced. Shoulders are well muscled and allow for even movement. Back is broad and should taper in the appearance of a body builder, being a little higher at the back than the front. Hindquarters The rear of the dog must be well muscled and powerful. Hocks must be slightly bent and allow for good movement. Muscle should be clearly defined. Tail In keeping with the bulldog of the 18th century, tails are preferred straight. Screw tails in the Standard are accepted and not considered faults. Under UK law, no Aylestone bulldog should have a cropped tail. Coat Short and soft. Colour Any colour is acceptable.
