Bulldog Breed Overview
Originally bred for bullbaiting in Great Britain in the 13th century until the bloody sport was outlawed in the mid-1800s, nearly leaving the breed extinct. Instead of returning the Bulldog to fighters, their breeders replaced their aggressive natures with sweeter, gentler characteristics, turning them into loving companions.

Bulldogs are friendly, patient, and stubborn, and are recognized as excellent family pets because of they tend to form strong bonds with children.
What are the Proper Bulldog Grooming Tips & Care?
Because of their short coats, Bulldogs require little more than a soft-bristled weekly brushing to remain smooth. Don’t forget to clean in between their wrinkles to keep them dry and free from irritants.
What are the Bulldog Health Conditions?
Bulldogs often suffer from brachycephalic airway syndrome because of their narrow nasal openings and windpipe, which can lead to working harder than normal to breathe, snorting, gagging, and a tendency to overheat.
They may also suffer from skin, orthopedic, heart, and eye problems.
What is the Proper Bulldog Diet?
Bulldogs will eat until their food is gone, which is why it is important to monitor their intake by feeding them up to 2 cups of high-quality food per day in two separate meals.
