English Bulldogs Were Bred to Be Ferocious Fighters – But You Wouldn’t Know it by Today’s Breed

The English Bulldog is a gentle and calm soul that gets along well with everyone.

But it was not always this way. They were originally bred to be very ferocious and tenacious.

Today’s Bulldog is patient and loving along with an option for families with children or another pets — including cats. They enjoy playing though they certainly have a tendency to tired easily and early.

And but they are loyal and loving family, protectors they are not. The English Bulldog is a bit more more likely to observe or even sleep rather than attack a stranger.

Appearance in the English Bulldog

The English Bulldog looks the same as everything you picture once you think of a bulldog. This is it. Short, wide, muscular by having an almost non-existent snout and Winston Churchill jowls. They stand only 12 – 15 inches tall but sometimes weight just as much as 60 pounds or even more.

They come in every doggie color except black in most cases have several unique colors forming an irregular pattern on the short, stiff coat.

Grooming and Exercise Needs

English Bulldogs only need the sporadic brushing — once per week roughly is normally fine. However the folds of skin across the face and nose must be cleaned frequently to prevent illness.

They are quite sedentary — which makes them perfect companions for seniors — so an everyday walk throughout the block is usually enough exercise.

Origins from the English Bulldog

The English Bulldog was originally bred for bullbaiting and dog fighting in England noisy . nineteenth century. They were bred being mean, ferocious fighters. But when these inhumane sports were outlawed inside 1830’s, Bulldogs started to be bred to get gentle and easy-going.

I think the breeders succeeded — why not a bit too well.
