History

  • He originated in England (he's also known as the English Bulldog)
  • He was originally bred in the 1600s as a fighting dog for the bloody sport of bull baiting (which is why he's called a "Bull" dog)
  • In 1835 when bull baiting became illegal in England a group of fanciers bred all the aggressiveness out of him until he turned into the sweet-natured "Bulldog" we know today

Personality and Behavior

  • He's sweet-natured and friendly
  • He's not vicious or aggressive
  • He gets very attached to his home and family
  • He doesn't wander; he likes to stay at home near you
  • He gets alone well with children, strangers, other dogs, and pets (he's not confrontational)
  • He doesn't mind living in a small apartment and he doesn't need much exercise
  • He's a couch-potato
  • He slobbers and drools
  • He makes snorting and snuffling noises and snores loudly
  • His intimidating look may thwart and intruder who doesn't know he's just a big sweetheart

Training

  • He's one of the most difficult breeds to train. You will need lots of patience as he is one of the slowest to learn obedience commands.

Shedding

  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
