English Bulldog

Dog Breed Description

The English Bulldog, commonly known as the Bulldog, was recognized by the AKC in 1886. Historically used as aggressive dogs for bull baiting, this breed has been tempered over the last few centuries to become courageous but gentle, patient, kind, and loyal.

The English Bulldog, with its squishy face, is lower to the ground and more muscular than its more lanky cousin, the American Bulldog. Stout, stocky and muscular, bulldogs are powerfully built, medium size and medium energy.  Their flat coats are flat, short, sleek, and easy to maintain and come in a range of colours: white, fawn, red, piebald, and brindle.

Bulldogs have become extremely popular and make great companion dogs, as they are quite sweet and humorous. They usually enjoy human companionship and get along with other pets and children.  They are intelligent but often like to do things their own way. Early positive training can make a big difference. They are happy curled up on the couch but do need regular walks and may have short burst of energy.

English Bulldogs require plenty of attention and regular cleaning of all their glorious wrinkles. They can be prone to health issues.
