The Bulldog – also sometimes known as the English or British Bulldog – is an instantly recognizable breed that resembles a large Pug. Its large head and short legs can make for a cute playmate.
As the name of English or British Bulldog suggests, Bulldogs are from England. Around 1500 AD, you’ll find the earliest known mentions of this dog, although the old spelling labelled them as Bolddogges or Bondogges. In the 1600s, the first appearances of the modern spelling of Bulldog first took place, suggesting that these dogs were around in their relatively modern form for quite some time.
Bulldogs are highly responsive to training. Training this breed does not require a lot of wrestling or excessive dog handling, and in fact sometimes well-trained Bullys might be used to assist other dogs in training.
