Bulldog

PETS
beloved dog



The Bulldog, also known as the English Bulldog or the British Bulldog, is a docile, friendly and loyal dog that hails from British fighting dogs. Today, the Bulldog is a generally peaceful and defensive creature since breeders have worked actively to remove aggressiveness from the breed to make Bulldogs more suitable as pet dogs. In this article, you can find a lot of interesting Bulldog information. Did you for instance know that Yale University has a Bulldog mascot? He is called Handsome Dan and is the oldest-running traditional live mascot in the United States

The Bulldog puppy is truly a bundle of joy, but before you decide to bring one home you should ask yourself if you will be willing to devote enough time and energy to your dog during the coming 8-12 years. Bulldogs are also known to require veterinary attention once in a while, and are therefore not a good choice if you are on slim budget.

Getting a Bulldog puppy is a good choice if you want a dog that is satisfied with shorter walks around the neighbourhood – this dog will not appreciate heavy exercise.  This doesn’t mean that you should let your Bulldog spend its entire life napping on the sofa; regular walks combined with a healthy diet are imperative if you want to avoid obesity and health problems related to heart and lungs. Getting a Bulldog puppy is also a great idea if you want a dog that rarely barks and will not mind living in a small apartment. If you on the other hand dislike dogs that drool, snore and snort, a Bulldog puppy is not the right choice for you. Some adult Bulldogs do become so called “dry-mounts”, but this is impossible to tell in advance

Bulldog breeding has taken place for hundreds of years, and the term Bulldog was first used around mid 16th century. During this period, it was applied to a wide range of different fighting dogs. In pre-Victorian England, the Old English Bulldog was a strong, fast and agile dog used for bullfights, but when the sport declined due to the passage of the Cruelty to Animals Act in 1835, the breed became extinct. Bulldog breeding for pet purposes continued, but those dogs retained very little of the speed and agility shown by their forefathers. In 1891, two very different Bulldogs competed for best in show: the athletic King Orry who had the agile look of the old Bulldogs and Dockleaf who was small, short-legged and heavy set. Dockleaf won and became the role model for future Bulldog breeding. The Bulldog price varies considerably and it is hard to give any general guidelines. The important thing is to find out what you actually get for the Bulldog price. Has the Bulldog breeder paid to have the Bulldog puppy examined by a qualified vet, vaccinated and de-wormed? Has the Bulldog breeder taken care to chose high-quality parents for the puppies? Are parents and puppies well cared for and socialized?
