Bred down from Greyhound x English Bull Terrier X Kangaroo Hound the breed started out as an all round dog that could be used in catching anything from Rabbits and Foxes to Boar , as time passed he went from the original then became a line and today is a true family of dogs. In the beginning he was a fast all action dog that proved to be fearless , as he evolved over 35 years untill the present time the Bullygrey was selectively bred more and more for hunting Wild Boar , by sacrificing some speed they are now a bigger and more powerful dog yet still retain the deep gameness of the original foundation dogs. During the Bullygreys evolution the APBT was infused 18 years ago to improve endurance drive and scenting abilty. Todays Bullygrey is a fast catch dog able to handle the biggest of Boars .
