According to "The New Bulldog" by Col. Bailey C. Hanes, 5th Edition, pg. 34, Published 1991 by Howell Book House, Macmillan Publishing Company; "The term
'Dudley' dates back to 1877 to a magnificent, under fifty pounds specimen
named Lord Dudley, who had this liver-colored pigmentation of the nose and lips.
The fault was not outlawed at the time, and the dog was much used at stud,
transmitting the fault to his progeny. Some strains show this faulty coloration of the nose and lips much more than do other strains, but 'Dudleys' may result from any breeding. It should be stressed that 'Dudleys' are disqualified from competition."
As much as I could find and yes, I have seen a few dudleys. If I recall correctly, maybe a few at the vet's office perhaps but usually poorer quality Bulldogs . I think there was a girl on the board that had one. I will have to go back and have a look.
