Description:
Alert. Protective. Intelligent. These are the qualities of the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, whose name connotes its regal bearing. Alapahas are said to make wonderful companions. They are also excellent watchdogs and are fiercely protective of whatever they are asked to guard. The Alapaha has a sturdy, muscular frame and is powerfully built, agile, and athletic.

History/Origin:
The origin of the Alapaha Blue Blood dates to the 1800s. Developed in the Alapaha River region of southern Georgia by PaPa Buck Lane, the breed was initially used as a plantation watchdog and cattle dog. Like the American Bulldog, the Alapaha is a descendent of the original Bulldogs that came to the U.S. from England in the 1700s. The breed was established in 1986 by the American Research Foundation, in the working dog category. From 1986 to 2001, ARF has registered or pedigreed just under 700 Alapahas.
