The English Bulldog is known to be predictable, dependable, and great with children. Their exercise needs are moderate, and they are typically low-endurance dogs. The dog features a large, spherical head with an extremely short muzzle. These features make the dog’s face appear flattened, which is a unique characteristic of the breed.
The eyes of this dog are dark and set low and wide on the forehead. They have a black, slightly upturned nose and massive, broad, and undershot jaws. Their lower jaw juts out in front of the upper jaw, exposing the lower incisors.
The cheeks of the English Bulldog protrude sideways and appear well rounded. The ears are thin and small, leaning forward like flaps that frame the forehead. The English Bulldog is about 16 inches tall, with females weighing about 50 pounds. Males weigh around 54 pounds. The skin on the English Bulldog is loose and pendant with heavy wrinkles. Their coat is also short and fine-textured. The various color patterns are brindle, piebald, solid white, red, fawn, and fallow.
Originally bred for bull baiting, they have managed to retain courage, making them excellent watchdogs. They can, however, become aggressive whenever they encounter unfamiliar dogs. They are a breed that love and actively seek out human interaction.
The English Bulldog requires about 30-40 minutes of exercise every day and is usually laid back. They live for about 8 to 10 years and have a high tendency to drool. They also snore a lot but lack the inclination to bark or dig. Their signature crablike waddle is a show of great strength, vigor, and stability.
