ODC "The Shadow of the Cyclops", is a amateur kennel committed to the selection of the American Bulldog. We are in Alatri, Ciociaria's heart, a few km from Rome and Naples.
We've began this adventure with definite goals.
We would be delighted if we could get the people to know, somehow, this breed with a great history in its past, stormy and strange history, facing the brink of extinction, we would like to make appreciate the Ambull for its astonishing physical and character skills, this breed for us has nothing to envy to the most blazoned german breeds, in fact has in its favor an out of the ordinary stubbornness, that places it to the top of its category for what concerns the enforced tasks given first of all guard and defense, that already are well marked in it even without any training.
Not forgetting its physical gifts, maybe the milestone that define the breed, these dogs have an explosive strength, impressive, with a stamina out of the ordinary that makes it a complete and multifunctional dog. Who has trained them knows something about it.
It's in our interest try to select them in the cleanest and clearest way is possible so we can produce subjects that reflect at full the standards of the breed preserving its gifts(physical and character),but at same time friendly with the family and the kids.
Surely it wont be an easy task, even for a breed as the American Bulldog that counts many standards and interpretations.
We certainly we will give it all so as to produce healthy physically and temperamentally stable.
