English Bulldog Puppies - Truly Man’s Best Friend

Everyone knows man’s best friend is the canine.  The English bulldog, puppy or adult is no exception.  Bulldogs love human attention.  They seek it out.  Great dogs for people who have smaller dwellings.  The English bulldog has a great friendly temperament despite their scary look.  The English bulldog as a puppy is a great energetic animal.  Like any other puppy these dogs frolic and play.  As age sets in the dogs usually become less active and enjoy little if any extra exercise besides a regular daily walk.  There are of course exceptions to every rule and some English bulldogs never grow out of their energy phase.

History Of The Breed, Not For Puppies…

The English bulldog is a direct descendant of the Asiatic mastiff, however some cross breeding and other breeding was done to get this short stalky powerful animal.  The name bulldog comes from the practice of using these dogs in arena combat against bulls.  They outlawed that practice in the late 18th century.  This breed is no longer a fighting animal.  It is a great human companion.  Like any animal, there are some typical problems associated with the English bulldog breed, and some things to consider when looking for an English bulldog puppy are if the parents or any part of the pedigree had any of the following problems.  Breathing problems are a big condition with this breed.  They have a tendency to develop small windpipes; as well the breed seems to have a tendency to have poor eyesight.  The dog is very susceptible to temperature often suffering from heat stroke, and can be very sensitive to the cold due to its very short fur.  They do also have hip and knee problems.  The dogs do drool and snore and at times they can be overly gaseous in their digestion.  However, these are just general things to keep in mind about the breed.  Many people have found great companionship with their English bulldogs, and many English bulldog puppies are still some of the cutest puppies in the world.
