Texas English Bulldog Stud Service
Though the breed has many common
characteristics, bulldogs have personalities almost as
varied as humans (allow me to introduce ours).
Today's bulldog has a very different temperament from
those of his ancestors. Although the English Bulldog's
appearance can be somewhat intimidating, it is among the
gentlest of dogs. Strangers will probably keep a
distance because of their fierce-looking demeanor, but
freinds and family will fall in love with him.
Bulldogs are described as very affectionate, and
dependable. Bulldogs are very much a
"people" breed: A lot of human attention
is required for the breed's happiness. Generally,
the Bulldog is a quiet, even tempered pet. He does not
bounce, dig, or bark a lot. He is easy to take care of,
loyal, and will love the entire family (although he will
probably have a favorite). When Bulldogs are young, they
are full of energy, but slow down as they get older.
Unfortunately, because bulldogs are quiet and happy to
lounge around in the sun all day, people tend to think
that they don't need exercise. Exercise is very
important if you want to have a happy healthy adult dog.
Adults do not require a lot of vigorous exercise --
walking your dog regularly, and playing with them
occasionally, should be sufficient. If left to their
devices, even in a very spacious yard, bulldogs will
probably not run around; they will wait for someone to
come outside and play with them.
