Dog Breed:   BULLDOG

View Bulldog Sculpture

The English Bulldog is an AKC and FCI recognized dog breed, classified in the Molosser Group, or the Non-Sporting Group. The perfect Bulldog must be of medium size and smooth coat; with heavy, thickset, low-swung body, massive short-faced head, wide shoulders and sturdy limbs. The general appearance and attitude should suggest great stability, vigor and strength. The disposition should be equitable and kind, resolute and courageous (not vicious or aggressive), and demeanor should be pacific and dignified. These attributes should be countenanced by the expression and behavior.

The Bulldog's heritage lies in England where it descended from the Alaunt, which was a Mastiff-type dog. The Bulldog got its name because it was a bull-runner as well as cattle driver and valuable hunter of wild boar. From the 13th Century on, the breed's qualities were specifically bred so that it was an able contestant in bull-running, bull-baiting and pit fighting. Finally, these terrible practices were outlawed but the Bulldog's status would have dwindled had it not been for the efforts of a few staunch Bulldog-loving fanciers. The Bulldog Club held fast to the breed and it was among one of the first few recognized by the English Kennel Club in 1873. The breed has been popular in North America since the end of the 19th Century. Today's breed is minus the viciousness of the past and fits in well just about anywhere. His lovable personality makes him a good family pet. This athletic dog should be exercised regularly.

Height: 12 - 14" (30.5 - 35.6cm)

Weight: 55 lbs (24.6 kg) for dogs, 45 lbs (20.1 kg) for bitches

Coat Type: The coat is short all over, smooth, dense and shiny. Colors range from red brindle to white to red, and sometimes black. A weekly rub-down is all that is needed in the grooming department.

Temperament: Although originally bred as a fighting-type dog, the Bulldog should be neither aggressive nor vicious. On the other hand, it is courageous and determined, friendly and easy to get along with.

Health Problems: Special precautions should be taken in areas of extreme heat or cold; respiratory infections; whelping difficulties as well as arthritis.

Special Interest: The shape and form of the dog may seem odd in appearance, but remember that all qualities of the Bulldog were bred-in specifically to make it an able bull-baiter. For example, the nose is pushed back so that once the dog was "locked" onto the bull, it would still be able to breathe. You should also be aware that this breed is a noisy "snuffler."

Classifications:
AKC: Group 6 - Non-Sporting Dogs
CKC: Group 6 - Non-Sporting Dogs
KC: Non-Sporting - Utility Group
FCI: Group 2
ANKC: Group 7 - Non Sporting
