The English Bulldog is happy and willing to please. It does great with children. Most cannot swim. They tend to wheeze, snore, and drool.
The Bulldog, also known as the English Bulldog, originated in England and dates back to the 13th century. They were originally used for bull baiting, a sport in which bulldogs fought bulls. When bull baiting was outlawed in 1835, they bred the ferocity out of Bulldogs while maintaining the physical stature to create a friendly and loving pet. Bulldogs are mellow, easygoing, and easy to train. They are comical and amiable, and generally get along with other pets. Bulldogs require little exercise, only short walks in cool weather, as they tend to overheat easily. This makes them great apartment dogs and family pets. Grooming a Bulldog requires cleaning tail folds and facial wrinkles daily.
