Bulldog Dog Breed Information
The coat of the Bulldog is close, straight, short, glossy, and smooth. It is of fine texture and there is no feathering, fringe, or curl. The colour of the coat comes in red brindle, solid white, solid red, fawn, or fallow, piebald, and various colours of brindle. This breed is an average shedder.
The Bulldog is moderate in size, heavy, and built low to the ground. They are strong, kind, amiable, and courageous. This breed is not vicious or aggressive and is quite dignified. They possess a passive demeanour and have a quirky sense of humour.
This breed is loyal, exceedingly affectionate, and deeply devoted to their family. The Bulldog is dependable, gentle, and does well in a home with children. They will get along with other pets they have been raised with but may be rude and try to bully strange dogs. They thrive on human attention and are dependent upon it for their happiness and well-being. The Bulldog has excellent guarding abilities but will only bark when absolutely necessary. This breed is very possessive of food and should never be fed in the presence of children or pets.
The Bulldog needs occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when necessary. This breed has a tendency to slobber and drool so daily cleaning of the face is a must.
The Bulldog must have daily exercise to stay fit. A securely leashed walk will suffice. They also benefit from and enjoy short family play sessions. This breed is well suited for apartment, condominium, and city dwelling. Bulldogs are very inactive indoors and do not need a yard.
Bulldog Health and Life Expectancy
The lifespan of the Bulldog is relatively short compared to some other breeds, and is around 8-10 years. There are a number of health problems that can affect this breed, and this includes heart problems, thyroid problems, ectropion, entropion, cataracts, elongated palate, a range of eye disorders, inverted tails, recessed tails, stenotic nares, and skin problems. Being short haired means that the Bulldog should not be exposed to extreme temperatures as this can be dangerous, and neither should he be over exerted as his short muzzle can mean that he develops breathing problems under these circumstances. The parents of the Bulldog puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
