The Aussie Bulldogs were given their name by Noel & Tina Green and founded from two breeding programs, N&T Green, or the Jag lines, and the Pip Nobes lines. These lines were started separately with previous years of breeding.

The body structure overall should be one of great strength with good thickness of bone, with males being solid and compact with good muscle tone. Nice long bodies on the females are preferred as a rule due to being better whelpers than short bodied females. A nice level topline is preferred with tail cartridge straight off the back, docked or not. Moderate turn of stifle and hock angulations. Chest area should be broad with the brisket well let down. Front should be straight with good shoulder placement. Body coat preferred short and smooth, not thick or rough.

The head structure of an Aussie Bulldog is one of its main attributes, being very strong and square in appearance, having good depth and width of muzzle with a pronounced stop between the eyes and have 1/3 folds of wrinkle across the nose. Eye placement should be wide apart, being large and clean in appearance. Mouth to be up to 1/4 inch undershot but breeding toward a near level bite preferred. Teeth should be of good size and well placed within the mouth.
