      About Bulldogs

      Modern Bulldogs are a completely man-made breed. The national dog of England, their strong heads, loose skin and short legs give them a very distinctive, amusing appearance. Bulldogs are generally gentle, affectionate dogs that love to be around their families. They are excellent with children and have a medium-low activity level that makes them great for apartment or city living. These loveable dogs are loyal to a fault and are sure to make you smile.

      Did You Know?

      The Bulldog's name comes from its history of bullbaiting. Bullbaiting was a cruel practice that coerced a dog to latch onto the nose of a bull, and it was believed to make the meat of the bull more tender.

      Origin

      The Bulldog comes from the British Isles of England and descends from ancient mastiff-type dogs.
