About Bull Dog
Bulldogs today are very different from their ferocious ancestors. Known to be a descendant of mastiff-type dogs, the Bulldog belonged to England. In ancient Rome, Bulldogs were banned on the streets due to their ferocious and strong temperament. As early as the 13th century, these dogs earned their name from the ancient sport of bull baiting, which involved the dog using its force and fighting a bull.

As adorable they may appear, Bulldogs are extremely heavy and powerful dogs. Their heavy body and short legs do not make them suitable for swimming, so as a pet parent to a Bulldog, please do not drop them in a pool as they would drown like a stone! Unlike other dog breeds, Bulldogs face a lot of problem when giving birth as they have very tight rears.
