The English Bulldog (or simply "Bulldog") was bred in England in the 1500s for the bull baiting, a popular game 'sport' in which one or more dogs were pitted against a chained bull (or bear). These dogs were bred for their fighting ability, and they were notorious for clinging to their prey with an iron jaw that they refused to release - they could even suffocate their opponents that way. English Bulldogs lost popularity when bull baiting was banned in the 1830s, but a group of committed devotees kept the breed alive and weeded out all traces of ferocity. Easily recognizable by their distinctive and adorable “sourmug”, the English Bulldogs are the mascots of dozens of sports teams, the most famous of Georgetown University. Other famous English Bulldogs include Handsome Dan, the mascot of Yale, and Tyson, the Internet famous skateboarding Bulldog. English Bulldogs are both a symbol of British tenacity and an extremely popular American pet.
The English Bulldog has a shoulder height of 31 to 36 cm (12 to 14 in) and weighs 22 to 25 kg (48 to 55 lbs). He is known for his short, wide muzzle, lower jaw, and wide, drooping face giving the appearance of a frown. English Bulldogs have short legs and tails, a rounded chest, and a compact, muscular body.
The English Bulldog has a short, smooth, and shiny coat that can be tan, mottled, brindle, or white.
The English Bulldog is affectionate, straightforward, gentle, intelligent, sensitive and fearless. He is known for his loyalty; his cheerful demeanor contrasts sharply with his bitter face. English Bulldogs are the happiest on their owner's side and behave badly if ignored. English Bulldogs are active, alert and playful, but not too loud.
English Bulldogs like to mix with other dogs and pets. They are great with children, well behaved, adaptable, comfortable companions with a loving nature and even a disposition. Some English Bulldogs are careful with strangers, but most are friendly with everyone. They are likely to drool or snore.
When the English Bulldog sheds, use a rubber brush to remove any dead hair. A special lotion will sometimes need to be applied to the folds of the face and tail to keep them clean; gentle brushing of teeth with approved toothpaste is also recommended. The English Bulldog has a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. Due to his facial features, he is susceptible to respiratory problems and skin infections, and many are born by cesarean section due to their large heads. Most English Bulldogs cannot swim and do not appreciate the heat.
Consistency is important, but the English Bulldog is very sensitive to its master's tone of voice, which makes training a fairly straightforward process. He is curious and quick to learn simple tasks, but unpredictable as he is a bit stubborn at times.
The exercise needs of the English Bulldog are not complicated. It will adapt to your family's activity level. Getting enough rest is the key to developing healthy bones, muscles, and joints - don't expect your English Bulldog to run long distances or jump off high ledges. English Bulldogs are well suited to apartment living.
