Johnson Breed American Bulldog
American Bulldog Rescue
American Bulldog from a California Animal Shelter
As I responded to an investigation many years ago in a vast city in California while working as an Animal Control officer. A call came in about a complaint for an abandoned dog, left almost one month to die by his prior owners after they had moved. The neighbor and a construction worker claimed to be tossing food over the fence periodically and filling an ice chest with water for him. When I responded, the home was clearly vacant. I yelled out my presence and rattled my keys while heading to the side of the home in hopes to see a dog. It took several minutes, but eventually a very large headed beast came up to the 4 ft chain link fence that separated us. He was skinny and underweight, yet he still had such a presence. At first, I just got a look from him. Ears up, no tail wag, yet no bark and no growl. He then ran back behind the house. Where did he go? I called out and soon he returned, tennis ball in mouth. It was love at first sight. I entered the yard and played a very long time with this amazing dog. Law required I post the property and return daily to follow up and provide food and water for 48 hours in the event that he may possibly not be abandoned. It was painful leaving him there. He was very hungry. How could anyone leave this handsome fellow? I returned the next day with the same events. Notices still posted, no response from the possible owners. I was off the day my future Peter Biscuits was impounded. A fellow Officer went to get him. And lucky for me, he was there. I called just to make sure. I was elated. Pete was held 2 weeks as evidence at the shelter. During his stay, I visited him every day. He stayed in the office when I worked nights on dispatch as many dogs did. We went for walks, ate "special" food, and even had a couple of baths. We had a bond from the beginning. After 14 days, he came home. We have had Pete almost 10 years as I write this. He has been the best dog. Loyal, sweet, and obedient and a wonderful companion and protector of my family.
How to Care for Large Dog Breeds
Meet my Peter Biscuits! A whopping 125 Pound American Bulldog!
Have you ever seen such a handsome boy? Peter Biscuits is an 11 year old 125 lb. American Bulldog. He appears to be of the John D. Johnson bloodline. The Johnson American Bulldog is a breed of dog unlike any other; their sheer strength and courage coupled with their undying loyalty and devotion make them the ultimate breed of dog. The modern American Bulldog is believed to have descended from the colossus breeds of ancient history similar to other mastiff breeds. The American Bulldogs earliest history is virtually unknown and little if any recorded records exist. The first documented history relating to the American Bulldog was during the late 19th century. Dogs resembling today's American Bulldogs were used in Europe, specifically England.

Large Breed Dog Toys
This is one of my American Bulldogs Favorite Toys! Big Peter can anilate his toys very quickly. So what I have learned by owning a large breed dog is how to find the best brand toys that are safe and virtually indestructible. I purchased this Kong brand toy for Peter. He just loves playing fetch and chewing on this quality toy. Kong toys are made with a tough safe nontoxic chewable rubber that is made in very fun playful shapes. Believe it or not, Sweet Peter is so big! I had to order him the kong made for horses. I will review that toy below.
