Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog Breeder

Breeding Old Southern Alapaha Bulldogs in Tennessee

Southern Alapaha Bulldogs is a family-owned and operated farm located in Middle Tennessee on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau. We raise Alapaha Bulldogs along with beef cattle on our farm. We chose to breed Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs because of the temperament or nature thay were known for. I say were because unfortunately most of the "Alapahas" you will find today do not maintain the nature they were known for; stable temperament, loyal companions, hard working all around farm utility dogs, fearless, and great with children. All of our dogs are raised as part of our family around our children, and worked on our farm. We strive to raise healthy, stable, and capable bulldogs true to the original old bulldogs of the south.

Alapahas are highly inteligent and ready to work as a guardian of family and property or a catch dog. They are very loving companions. We love our alapahas and hope you will take a closer look at this amazing breed.

I love this breed, I am so happy with my puppy from Southern Alapaha bulldogs. My Daisy is so healthy, well tempered, and she’s gorgeous. Cy responses to any calls and messages within a timely manner. He’s a great guy, he really cares for the well being of his dogs. I will definitely come back for another puppy. Thank you so much Cy and family!

Cy, Just to give you a little feedback. Zeb is the most amazing dog that I have ever owned! He is incredibly intelligent and has an awesome disposition. Even Sam likes him, which is tough because he is so energetic. Keep up the good work. This is a breed worth keeping around. I have owned dogs all my life and Zeb is exceptional. I thought I would never have a dog better than Buford, but I was wrong. Thanks again. One day I would definitely consider breeding him and getting one of his offspring. Marlee can't keep up with him but they get along great.

This is a great kennel in the country side! I have been onsite and it is always clean and well maintained. The dogs get time working livestock in addition to a full range of ages with kids and other family exposure. Highly recommend this breeder!

History of the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog

Lana's Marcelle Lane

The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, which has also been known as the Old Southern Bulldog, is the outcome of a comprehensive breeding program. The breeding program is accredited to Lana Lou Lane in the 1970s within the Alapaha River Region of Georgia. The program was meant to preserve the original "Plantation Dogs" of the South. These Old Southern Bulldogs were used for centuries as companions and a "do-all" farm dog, herding and holding unruly cattle, catching wild hogs, protecting the plantation, guarding the family against intruders, as well as protecting livestock against predators.

As a result of many years of selective breeding, the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog came into its own when Mrs. Lane contacted the Animal Research Foundation (ARF) in regards to preserving and registering her breed in perpetuity. In 1986 the ARF registered the first Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs that came from her kennel named Circle L Kennels.

The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog was developed by using: White English Bulldog (WEB) or Old Southern White that entered in the USA in the 1700s, Colby Pitbull, Old Southern Bulldog (OSB), and Catahoula Cur aka Catahoula Leopard Dog. It is possible that there were other breeds that were good working plantation dogs used in the earlier years. But these are the basis for the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog breed.
