    Here is my white english bulldog Ginger blowing off steam and playing. Her cousin that we call a dog of the Old White English type ignores her. OWE take after the shepherds mastiffs and are relatively calm. Those that throw as a bulldog type have more drive and are often built differently. Ginger's back legs are twisted outward and not straight as her OWE cousin's legs are. This is called by some a pit rear end. Her upper jaw is a little shorter than her bottom jaw. Cranium is relatively large and shaped like a rectangular block. It is full of muscle.

    The video is it not working. It does play for me. When i sent it to some friends it did not work. It is my first attempt at a youtube video post and maybe I did something wrong. Here I will try it once more as a link.

    I will add even though my Ginger is playing the moves are those that are used in hunting dangerous game like swine or working with unruly livestock. It is meant for close quarters to get in grabbing say a pig's ear to immobilize it.

    Below a hunting scene of what are likely cur dogs going for a pig's ear.

    Using dogs to hunt hogs in the wild in order to provide food for the family is said to have started in America as early as the 1800s even though the practice can be traced as far back as the ancient Romans. Hunters often used two types of canines back then bay dogs and catch dogs.
    The bay dogs are released first to chase a boar down. Once the wild pig is cornered or attempts to fight back its pursuers, the catch dogs are then released to incapacitate the hog until the hunter arrives on the scene. The catch dogs will pounce on the pig and will usually seize it behind the ear in order to control and hold it down. The human hunter finishes the job by dispatching the boar using his spear or knife.
    A bulldog or pitbull is the most common catch dog. But a lot cur dogs will also catch. Many cross cur dogs and bulldogs to get a dog that can track, bay, and then catch. Most bulldogs do not have the wind to chase a hog down and are kept leased until the hog is bayed.

    I think there are both Lacys and Rhodesian Ridgebacks in that photo, but that is a guess. This is the site that the picture is from: http://dogsaholic.com/lifestyle/hog-...with-dogs.html
    On my part that is a guess. I do not have the eye for dogs that some that i know do. There are people have hundreds of photos and that is a life time vocation for them.

    Rhodesian ridgeback

    Lacy cur dogs. Note how the head differs from the Rhodesian Ridge Back
