About Bulldogs

The name bulldog usually refers to the English bulldog. There are also three other breeds of bulldog: the American, Olde English, and French bulldog. An English bulldog is a medium-sized, muscular, squat breed of domestic dog originally bred to compete in bull-baiting, a popular and horrific sport of the 1600's. Bulldogs range in weight from 45 - 60 pounds and have a typical lifespan of 8 - 12 years.

Due to the nature of bull-baiting, bulldogs evolved squat, stocky body types to withstand the violence of the sport. After the sport became illegal in the 1800's, bulldogs were used both as family pets and as working cattle dogs. Shortly thereafter, the English bulldog was bred with the pug, creating the modern bulldog with its flat face and extremely short legs.Bulldogs of all breeds tend to be docile and friendly, although extremely stubborn. Bulldogs tend to be very close to their human companions, refusing to leave the family residence, even to the yard, without a human with them.
