History

Truly a symbol of Britain, many believe the Bulldog dates back to the Molossian dog brought there by the Phoenicians in the 6th century BC. Others suggest the breed descended from a butcher’s dog called the Alaunt. Wherever he originated, the Bulldog is the result of centuries of breeding for bull-baiting. While the breed’s features may seem unusual compared with those of many other dogs, each characteristic was specifically chosen to make him the premier fighter in the bull-baiting ring. After bull-baiting was banned in the 1800s, the breed lost popularity and might have died out if a group of concerned breeders hadn’t worked together to save it. The first Bulldog club was formed in 1864; it defined the breed and began efforts to preserve it. Now the breed, also known as the English Bulldog, is a kind companion and a symbol of courage and tenacity.

Personality

With his history as a fighting dog, the Bulldog’s kind and gentle personality might come as a surprise. He is a loving pet who craves his family’s attention. Though protective in nature, he loves children and usually gets along well with other family pets. Overall he is an easy-going dog who quickly charms with his steady temperament and friendly face.
