You can't mistake a Bulldog for any other breed. The furrowed brow, small ears, and hanging chops are immediate identifiers and are characteristics loved by many. Bulldogs can adapt well to apartment life and even make great companions for novice pet parents. They’re affectionate with all members of the family and are fairly low-maintenance pups.
Originally bred to fight in a gruesome blood sport called "Bullbaiting", the modern-day Bulldog is much happier taking a nap on the couch or playing with kids than fighting. Despite cartoon depictions of them as ferocious dogs, today's Bulldogs are bred to be affectionate and kind. They are fully capable of standing up to intruders when on guard dog duty, but are not out actively looking to pick fights or cause trouble.
Most Bulldogs stand at approximately 12-15 inches to the shoulder and weigh 40-50 pounds, giving them their iconic muscular build. Colored in a variety of coats including white and brindle, their unique physical makeup makes them prone to certain health issues that prospective owners should be aware of. Due to their facial structure, Bulldogs always have some degree of airway restriction, and they have difficulty panting correctly, which makes it difficult for them to regulate their body temperature.
The Bulldog makes a great apartment companion due to its size and love of inactivity. This laziness, however, can lead to rapid weight gain if not kept in check. A brisk walk is recommended every day in order to keep the weight off and avoid any unnecessary joint damage, which is another health problem that bulldogs are susceptible to if not monitored.
How dog-friendly is Alabama?
Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon!
Here’s what you should know about Alabama.
Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.
Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?
Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.
Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.
A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama
BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.
Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%.
What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama
Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period.
Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
