The Gangway Bully Vision

Gangway Bullies is a partner with other small bully kennel owners in Northeast Ohio. In short, we want to produce healthy and high quality English Bulldogs, American Bullies, and Olde English Bulldogges that will be good representations of the breed for many years to come. Needless to say, there will be some variations in the sizes and features depending on the sires and dams used in the breeding. Our goal is to produce good bully looking dogs based on the current conformation standards for their respective breed. Gangway has owned bully breeds since 1995 and has been breeding for more than 15 years starting out with Bullmastiffs. We work in conjunction with each other to keep things manageable so that no one has to house more than six dogs on their premises that we use in our breeding and showing programs. Unlike a puppy mill operation, by keeping our individual numbers low we able to provide our respective dogs with the best of care. .


The English Bulldog (Bulldog) 

Bulldogs have comparatively small statures, they are stout, exceptionally sturdy, and widely built. They have muscular legs that are set squarely and contribute to the breed’s “waddle”. Their heads are thick and very large-sized with cheeks that reach the sides of their eyes. The Bulldog’s muzzle is short and pug and features a broad black nose with wide nostrils. Their upper lips are pendent and close over an undershot lower jaw. Bulldogs have round dark eyes that are set far apart and a pair of small, thin ears that are folded back. Their short tails are carried low. The coat of this breed exists in a number of colors including red, washed-out red, white, brindle, pale yellow, or fawn. Many coats of this breed are a mixture of several of the above colors.

The American Bully 

The American Bully breed was established in the mid 1990s with the purpose of creating the ultimate family companion. The American Bully was created through years of selective breeding by combining the desired traits of the UKC American Pit Bull Terrier and the AKC American Staffordshire Terrier. The American Bully’s origin’s can be seen both on the East and West Coast of the United States, primarily in Virgina, and Los Angeles, California. Today the American Bully can also be seen, in Europe and Asia.

The American Bully should give the impression of great strength for its size. Compact to medium/large size dog with a muscular body and blocky head. Powerful in its movement and should display effortless movement at the same time. Keenly alive and alert to its surroundings. The American Bully should have the appearance of heavy bone structure with a Bully build and look.

The American Bully is a companion breed exhibiting confidence, a zest for life, along with an exuberant will to please and companionship with their family. This making the American Bully an excellent family companion. Despite the American Bully’s fierce and powerful appearance their demeanor is gentle. They are great with kids, and extremely friendly with strangers, other dogs, and other animals. Human or dog aggression, extreme shyness, or viciousness is very uncharacteristic of the American Bully and is highly undesirable.

The Olde English Bulldogge  

The Olde English Bulldogge is a contemporary recreation of the original 18th century Bulldogge which became extinct. Please understand that this dog no longer existed at some point in nature. What we see today is a variety of perceived versions of what we believed the dog to look like and act like prior to extinction. Current OEB lines can only be traced back about forty years. Developed during the 1970s by David Leavitt, this breed was re-created using an English Bulldog, Bullmastiff, American Bulldog, and Pit Bull. Mr. Leavitt's goal was to produce an Olde English Bulldogge that was not violent in temperament and free of the health problems associated with English Bulldogs. Other breeders such as Greg and Linda Hermes have also been instrumental in the restoration of the breed along with a number of other breeders across the country. 

Because of personal preference our OEB's tails will be docked and they will carry a significant percentage of Hermes bloodlines in their pedigrees. This line breeding gene pool program tends to produce very athletic and impressive looking dogs when they reach full maturity. Please be mindful that the current conformation standard is looking for a slightly smaller dog than those that were produced 10-20 years ago. Males should be 18 to 20 inches at the shoulder and weighing 65 to 85 lbs. Females should be 17 to 19 inches at the shoulders and weighing 50 to 70 lbs. The days of the 100+ pound Oldes are no longer desired in the show ring. The standards have moved to a slightly smaller over the years. The bottom line is to get better in quality, not just bigger in litters and weight.
