TSU Shorty Bulls is a small Kennel located in Nashville, TN, where we strive to create the ultimate shorty bull.  We have acquired some of the best blood available to help us achieve a very distinct look and attitude of what we feel best represents the ultimate shorty bull. 

The Shorty Bull is a composite bulldog with classic bulldog features.  They are all around healthy bulldogs with a stable temperament in a small, fun sized package. Shorty Bulls are thought to be the healthier alternative to the English and French Bulldog and are adaptable to the outside and inside environment.  These athletic bulldogs are eager to please and make excellent pets.  We are excited in helping this young breed move forward with our ultimate Shorty Bulls.
