Shorty Bull



The Shorty Bull is a breed in development that consists primarily of three different breeds. These include the English Bulldog, French Bulldog and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Breeds which should not be considered in the mis are Olde English Bulldogs, Pugs and Boston Terriers. The initial developers Amy Krogman and co-fonder Jamie Sweet expressly have stated Pugs and Boston Terriers should not be considered. The stated purpose in this breeds development was to develop a breed that of good temperament, strength and functionality without the need for assisted breeding or whelping. A good specimen of the developing Shorty Bull breed should be capable of living an active life.
