In all seriousness, I thought you were asking about an American Bullfrog!! LOL. I would not leave them alone until you are sure of them, either. Eventually one will establish dominance over the other, you have to let this happen but also guide it along so one dog doesn't completely dominate the other. IE make sure your dog stays your dog and his stays his so they both know they have a secure place in the home.

Yeah, my husband said that Sammy is probably gunna push Max too far at some point and get put in his place.. Which that's fine, I understand that that has to happen, but Sammy is just SO much smaller than Max! It would not take much from Max to seriously hurt Sammy. Nick doesn't think I should worry too much.. he says if he was going to attack Sammy, he would've done it already. And really.. Sammy doesn't jump up on him, or anything. He was actually terrified of him at first, but now seems pretty comfortable around him. They've even eaten out of the same food bowl... Nick had ahold of Max's collar just in case he went for Sammy, but they just kept takin turns eating from it... I swear, if anything happens to my dog both Max and Nick are gunna be out on the streets!!...

He's adorable ! I have an English bulldog but I don't think the 2 breeds are even related. We adopted our staffie as well and it's a great feeling to give a dog a home! Hope everything goes well !

I think they are related Tanya.
Going from memory, as I looked into getting an Ambull at one time, the English bulldog as we know it was created by show people from a working bulldog. Short, squat, can't whelp naturally, breathing problems if it gets too hot. The leggier bulldogs; Olde, American, Alapaha, were created to get the bulldog back to its more natural state of being a working dog, like they were originally bred for.

At least that's what I read, but that information is only as good as the oldtime breeders' records

I'm sure they have the flatulance, drooling and snoring in common then

Most big dogs are very tolerant, even protective of the little ones. Your bulldog has "sweeteyes", and I doubt you'll have any trouble with him.

My daughter has a Great Dane and Papillon, and if they're not a pair! The little dog is super-hyper, constantly bouncing up and down and barking, while the Dane is very laid back and mellow.

Below, Gizmo and Baby...
