One of his ancestors may have been the English Bulldog
Personality and Behavior
He loves nothing more than to be on your lap or right next to you on the lounge
He's very affectionate
He likes to play
He's well behaved and has an even disposition
He gets on well with strangers
He isn't a barker
He can't live outside because of his flat face which causes him to have breathing difficulties in hot weather
He can be aggressive with other dogs but usually is okay with them
He snorts, snuffles and snores loudly (it might get on your nerves)
He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.
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!).
