The American Bulldog Association was formed in 1989 initially to keep the American Bulldog stud book of the breed and to register breeding quality, pure-bred American Bulldogs. Until this point the breed was only recognized and registered by rare breed registries interested in all manner of breeds of dogs and other animals, not promoting well bred functional American Bulldogs. The ABA was founded with the commitment of educating breeders and the encouragement of keeping intact the soundness and qualities of the true bulldog.
