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.
