Appearance: The Australian Bulldog is a healthy animal,
distinctly "bulldog" in type yet free off anatomical exaggeration.

for unhindered breathing. Loose folds of skin across nose but in
no way excessively wrinkled.
Eyes any colour acceptable, Rose or button ears preferred, undershot
jaw but not to excess.
The back should be short and straight giving compact carriage but
not to short to interfere with activity and agility.
The tail is straight (long or short) crank, pump handled tails are
accepted. Screw tails are acceptable but tight screw undesirable.
