Old English bulldogs were kept by working-class people in the American south as far back as the 1600s. There were used as all-around working dogs by owners of farms and ranches. They were also used as guard dogs and catch dogs while hunting. The south was overrun with feral pigs with no native predators, and bulldogs were used to try to combat the pests. This may be what allowed them to thrive at times in the past, helping them to persist until the present day.
