The breed was developed by the Maxwell family of Darien, Georgia, USA, under the strict guidelines of the Animal Research Foundation to re-establish a breed of white bulldog that partnered loggers and rice plantation owners of the Altamaha River Basin. During the Antebellum period, large rice plantations surrounded the Altamaha River Basin. The breed is a sustained effort to recover and preserve the “Altamaha Plantation dog” of southeastern Georgia.My humble attempt to introduce the most honorable dogs I have ever known, is like describing devotion without question, or blind devotion. They are companions willing to give up their lives in an instant, without hesitation, for your protection, or simply upon your asking.These plantation rice fields, averaging from 300 to 600 acres in size, produced hundreds of thousands of pounds of rice; at its 1850’s peak, Mr. Pierce Butler, and Mr. P. M. Nightingale, the two largest rice planters, often produced more than a million pounds of rice annually.
