Are you crazy about your English Bulldog? Over the years there's been a common misconception that Bulldogs are bullies, mainly due to their origins as dogs bred for bull and bear baiting. The reality couldn't be further from the truth. They are sweet, affectionate and loyal friends. Welcome to our community!
This website is devoted to the English Bulldog and to all those who love and appreciate the breed. Increasing in popularity every year, the Bulldog is making a serious push towards the number one position for all AKC registered dogs. In some cities across the United States and the United Kingdom, this has already happened. This surprises many people who aren't familiar with the Bulldog. So, that's why we're here; to educate and entertain all who enter.
They are used as the symbol of nations all over the world because of their loyalty and tenacity. During World War II the British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill was depicted as a bulldog because he refused to give up hope and kept working towards victory and peace.
English Bulldogs are very gentle and eager to please. They're good with kids, but heavy bodied so can knock down little ones unless they're well trained. They nevermean to hurt anyone but if you have small children or grandchildren this is something that you'll need to take into account.
Let's face it, who can resist those droopy jowls and soft, dreamy eyes? Who could be unhappy with such a loyal friend who is so eager to please you, obedient and willing to learn tricks?
Are your expectations realistic about what's needed to care for your pet? Cute puppies turn into adults and need to be cared for. The average life span is between 8 and 12 years, so this is a long term commitment for you and your family. The information on this site will help you to make an informed decision and give guidance on caring for your pet in the best way.
They don't shed hair like some dogs do, so you won't need to spend hours and hours grooming. On the other hand, you should be prepared to be drooled on, listen to snuffly snoring and be prepared to keep all the little wrinkly areas clean. In return you will enjoy the unconditional love and adoration of a faithful friend.
We hope that you will enjoy your visit to our site and find it informative and interesting. Winston is our very own English Bulldog advisor and he shares his wisdom in tip boxes like this one. Look out for them as you visit through the site.
