Rice created the first American Bullnese and somewhere in the 1990s some breeders began taking the French Bulldog and Pekingese to come up with the Bullnese Hybrid. Selected for what were thought to be the best qualities of these two breeds, the American Bullnese Hybrid have a great look, solid and muscular in body type with a large head, broad chest, and stumpy legs.

Behaviour and Personality

They don't require a lot of exercise, but should be taken on regular walks to keep in shape. These dogs are fairly docile and do not make for particularly good watchdogs and can be difficult to train, perhaps making them unsuitable for first time dog owners. For owners with busy schedules, the American Bullnese might be the perfect fit, however, because they don't require too much work after training.
