Today we'll acquaint ourselves with the dog with a vicious appearance, but which in reality is a real softie with a heart of gold: the English Bulldog.
Origin: England Life span: 8–10 years Weight: 40-50 pounds Height: 13–15 inches Breed group: Non-sporting
Bullbaiting was a brutal sport that involved the employment of mastiffs, which were imported to the British Isles and bred for combat.
The English Bulldog has a violent history that led to the breed’s name.
They have droopy skin, a rope for a nose, and wrinkles all over their face.
They're identified by their strong, short-legged, and wide-bodied build.
There are four recognized colors for these dogs, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC); these include red, white, fawn, and fallow.
The ideal living environment for a Bulldog is properly ventilated and has enough space for the dog to run around and play.
The United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are just a few of the numerous countries with bulldogs in their canine populations.
The Old English Bulldog is the rarest bulldog type. It is a bigger and more muscular breed.
Their massive underbite is a defining (and outrageously adorable) characteristic.)
An overweight Bulldog’s joints will suffer; therefore, it’s important to watch their food intake.
High-quality dog food in the range of 1/2 to 2 cups per day, divided between two meals.
This breed is disadvantaged by their short legs, squished-up faces, and stout bodies, all of which make them terrible swimmers.
The safest delivery method for an English Bulldog is a C-section due to their huge heads.
Dog experts advise that they shouldn’t get more than an hour of exercise a day so as to not overexert them.
It is also recommended that they receive numerous shorter walks rather than one long one.
