Overview
Descended from the Asiatic mastiff, the Bulldog was developed in Great Britain. Their primary function was that of a participant in the blood sport of bull baiting. They were also used against bears, other vicious carnivores, and lions. During the 19th century purebred Bulldogs were very rare due to the enactment of the anti-baiting laws. Today the Bulldog is a family companion and show dog.
Character
The Bulldog is moderate in size, heavy, and built low to the ground. They are strong, kind, amiable, and courageous. This breed is not vicious or aggressive and is quite dignified. They possess a passive demeanor and have a quirky sense of humor.
Temperament
This breed is loyal, exceedingly affectionate, and deeply devoted to their family. The Bulldog is dependable, gentle, and does well in a home with children. They will get along with other pets they have been raised with but may be rude and try to bully strange dogs. They thrive on human attention and are dependent upon it for their happiness and well-being. The Bulldog has excellent guarding abilities but will only bark when absolutely necessary. This breed is very possessive of food and should never be fed in the presence of children or pets.
Care
The Bulldog needs occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when necessary. This breed has a tendency to slobber and drool so daily cleaning of the face is a must. They are prone to such health issues as breathing problems, low tolerance to anesthesia, poor eyesight, skin infections, and hip and knee problems. Nearly all Bulldogs must be born by Caesarean section due to their large heads. They are adverse to weather extremes and are highly susceptible to heat stroke. This breed is also well known for their active gastrointestinal system.
Coat
The coat of the Bulldog is close, straight, short, glossy, and smooth. It is of fine texture and there is no feathering, fringe, or curl. The color of the coat comes in red brindle, solid white, solid red, fawn, or fallow, piebald, and various colors of brindle. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are a must for the Bulldog. They have a tendency to be hardheaded and stubborn. It is important that they be taught to know their owner is dominant. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, consistency, praise, and reward.
Activity
The Bulldog must have daily exercise to stay fit. A securely leashed walk will suffice. They also benefit from and enjoy short family play sessions. This breed is well suited for apartment, condominium, and city dwelling. Bulldogs are very inactive indoors and do not need a yard.

Annual cost of owning a Bulldog puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Bulldogs true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I have Bulldog puppies for sale! See My Profile
I have been raising dogs for over 17yrs, starting out with one of the most difficult breeds, that being the ALC Bulldog. I spent countless hours reseaching bloodlines to improve the breed, and started raining and showing with some of the top championship bloodlines across US and internationally. I then decided to go into the smaller breed of French Bulldogs after my divorce and have loved the frenchies, but also missed a bigger housedog. I then found the look of the Goldendoodle and searched the Goldendoodles for their desireable traits of Non-shedding, and healthy bloodlines. Both sides of my goldendoodles' parents are genetic and health tested. This is sooo important for larger breeds. My website still only covers my bulldogs bit does show my contracts and gives you a background in the manner of how i raise my companion dogs.

My son is bringing his 2 year old Victorian bulldog to my home, but his dog is not neutered, can he hurt my cocker spaniel ? She is a female 2 years old, she is spayed?

If the dog is a well socialized and well trained dog and if your dog is as well, then they should get along just fine. But I would have separate area's set up so that your dog can have her own space and his dog can have his own space to begin with. Allow the dogs to meet each other on a loose leash outside of the home first, like at a park and then go for a walk together. Then once the dogs are relaxed and tired, go back to the house and supervise their off leash interactions. If the Cocker seems nervous and anxious, then allow her to go to her own space where the Bulldog can not bother her. It takes time for dogs that are not used to having another dog around to be comfortable.

Can the Bulldog breed live in a tropical country?

The English and French Bulldog is known and beloved for its short/squishy face. But sadly, those faces can make life difficult for the dog when it comes to getting enough air and for regulating his/her temperature. However, if the proper cautions are taken care of, either breed should be able to live in a tropical area. The dog must have access to fresh/cool water at all times, shade if the dog is outside, but also be able to be inside with air conditioning. If those needs are met, the dog should do just fine.

I don't have ac and live in MN. I have had bulldogs for over 6 years. As long as you have a cool place they will be fine. Mine lay on the concrete in my garage or basement. I also put out a small pool for them to play in.

Why does my Bulldog vomit one two days a week?

Bulldogs are not a breed that chews the food. Mostly EBD's gulp and just swallow the food. This adds a lot of air to the stomach because of inhaling. Sometimes the trapped air comes up like a burb and the food above the air comes out as well. This usually happens in a short amount of time after the dog eats. The other condition that causes this is because of drinking a lot of water right after eating. Again, because the food is not chewed, when the water is added, the food swells up. Again, causing possibly a too full tummy and again the water and the food is expelled. There are dog food bowls that can slow down how fast the dog can eat. Check pet food stores or online. Many different designs that slow down how fast they can inhale the food.

I had a Bulldog named Sissy. I looked at her one day because after she would eat then it would all come up. I felt her neck because it look bigger than it should. So we went to the vet and he did a bio; come to find out she had cancer. I'm not trying to scare you, but maybe you should get her checked out. I used to breed Bulldogs and I just lost my last little guy a year ago. Now I'm ready to get another one. His name was Peewee and I miss him a lot. Just be safe with yours. I'm not saying you have the same problem but just check.

How much does a grown old English Bulldog weigh?

A full grown EBD can range from 40-55 pounds for a female and 55-90 for a male. To know how big your bulldog will be, be sure a look at both the mom and the dad. The European purebred English Bulldog is about 20% bigger than the United Sates bred EBD. While the Bulldog Club of America lists the "standard" weight, the current breeders of EBD are creating a slightly bigger Bulldog.
