Are English Bulldogs friendly to other dogs?
yes but it really depends on the dog but most are friendly to people and dogs
Yes, they do. I own a 4 yr old female English bulldog. She is very friendly towards other dogs, sometimes though the other dogs find her frightening because of her size. My sister has a 16 lb pug and my dog is around 45 lbs. My dog loves to try to play with her pug, but her dog runs and hides. I guess if your a little dog and see a bigger dog charging, you…
There are over 30 breeds of bulldogs. The most common breed is the English Bulldog. A few other common breeds of bulldog are the French Bulldog and American Bulldogs. Some other breeds of bulldogs that aren't quite as common, but still deserve mention are The Olde English Bulldogge, The Alpaha (Blue-Blood) Bulldog, the Miniature bulldog, and the Victoria Bulldog.
The closest relative of the English bulldog is by far the French Bulldog. The french bulldog came to be, by breeding dwarf English Bulldogs together until they formed their own unique breed. There are also a number of other dogs that descended from the bulldog including American Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, and Bull Mastiffs.
Olde English Bulldogges are a type of Bulldog that are usually bigger and stockier than regular English Bulldogs. The Olde English Bulldogges are closer to the form of their ancestors bred for dog fighting and baiting bulls. English bulldogs are smaller and more clownish, with shorter legs, shorter bodies, and shorter snouts, with a more comedic temperment. Olde English Bulldogges are more of working stock, English Bulldogs are more of show stock. :)
Some English Bulldogs like to swim, but typically, Bulldogs can not swim. They are heavily built dogs who just can't keep themselves afloat. When they are near water, they need to wear life vests for their safety. Some English Bulldogs do like to swim, others do not, as with any breed of dog. Bulldogs have short muzzles and a dog life jacket is essential to keep the muzzle and head above water, for bouyancy protection…
No, They do not smell if they are properly taken care of and groomed regularly. English bulldogs are very high maintance dogs, in which you must clean their eyes, wrinkles, and ears. If their wrinkles are not properly taken care of an infection could start and that could cause odor. But just like any other dog they must be bathed regularly to keep the "dog" smell out. -owner of an English bully
Bulldogs got their names because they used to fight actual bulls. At first people where scared of the dogs because they where mean from fighting the bulls. Later people trained the bulldogs to be nice dogs. That's how bulldogs got their name. Bull (from fighting bulls) + dog (they are dogs) = bulldog
English Bulldogs were breed for baiting bulls in preparation for bull fighingt. Once bull fighting became outlawed a few individuals decided to continue breeding the dogs and breed the aggressiveness out of the breed. Now the breed is known for it's companionship and loving nature expecially towards children and other dogs.
