Hello, just wanted you to know that some american bulldogs do tend to shed and shed alot. We have a white bulldog who sheds more then normally. We picked up a thick red plastic grooming brush. Its flat and has thick bristles we got it at Petco. These so called brushes worked magically in taking the excess hair off the dog I would suggest using it on a daily or even twice daily basis. Until it has gotten under control. Hope this helps.
