The Bulldog is the national symbol of Britain. This dog breed has a medium size, dense and powerful, low-slung body with wide shoulders and a massive short-faced head, smooth coat.
Despite its early breeding to bait bulls, the English Bulldog is gentle and good-natured and makes an excellent companion for the whole family. An ideal pet, as he loves to be in the company of his family. He adores children and makes an excellent companion to them because of his gentle, sometimes stubborn nature.
It is a laid-back, loyal good natured and undemanding companion who would make a great companion for the elderly who do not want to feel guilty for not walking him or the “couch potato” family. Contrary to popular belief he does not drool, but he may snore.
The Bulldog is a friendly and good-natured dog breed. Gentle, affectionate, docile, and mellow, very good with children and strangers. A lot of human attention is required for their happiness.
When Bulldogs are young, they are full of energy, but slow down as they get older. Some Bulldogs may be aggressive with strange dogs, but generally get along well with other pets.
Short and smooth coats, easy to groom, require minimal brushing.

To help prevent the chance of hip or elbow dysplasia developing make sure your dog is on a healthy, well proportioned diet, and avoid excessive running and jumping while still a puppy as this can be hard on the developing joints.
