English Bulldog Breed history
It is thought that English Bulldogs were bred for bull-baiting in 13th century England. In bull baiting, a pack of dogs would fight a staked bull, and spectators would bet on the outcome. These original English Bulldogs were incredibly tough and had huge jaws.
When England banned blood sports with animals in 1835, dog fighting became a popular (an illegal) sport. This sport required more agility, and breeders mixed the English Bulldog with types of bull terriers.
Eventually, the English Bulldog faced extinction. Fanciers of the breed went to work creating a breed that was companion – not a fighter. This new version of the English Bulldog was docile, gentle, and more attractive than its ancestors.
In 1886, the English Bulldog was registered in the AKC studbook, and in 1890, The Bulldog Club of America was formed.
For a long time, the English Bulldog was a symbol of England. In America, the English Bulldog is a mascot for a variety of sports teams. The English Bulldog is also a mascot for the U.S Marine Corps.
Today, the English Bulldog ranks number five out of all dogs registered with AKC.

English Bulldog body features
English Bulldogs have a very distinct appearance! They are stocky, low to the ground, and walk with a bowlegged, rolling gait.
They have a wrinkled face, an underbite, and large, drooping jowls.
English Bulldogs are smooth, short, glossy coats and can have a variety of colors and markings including, fawn, white, red, brindles, and piebald. Some bulldogs have white markings or black masks.
grooming Your English Bulldog Puppy
English Bulldogs shed seasonally, which means they shed heavier twice a year. You will want to brush them daily during their heavy shedding seasons to remove the loose hair.
All the wrinkles and folds in an English Bulldog’s skin means bacteria can become trapped, leading to skin infections. Wash your Bulldog’s face and wrinkles with a warm cloth. Be sure to dry the inside of the wrinkles too.
Always keep an eye out for signs of skin, ear, and eye irritations on your English Bulldog. Contact your vet if you notice redness, itching, waxy discharge, flakiness, or unusual odors on your Bulldog.
Your English Bulldog will also need its nails trimmed and teeth brushed regularly.
Keeping Your English Bulldog Puppy Healthy
Due to their unique body build and stubby noses, there are a few health concerns that are specific to the Bulldog family.
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome
First, be on the alert for brachycephalic airway syndrome. The English Bulldog’s compressed nose and airways can make it difficult for them to breathe during exercise, and this is compounded if the dog has an elongated soft palate or a narrow nasal cavity.
Pay close attention to your English Bulldog during exercise, and see a vet if your dog seems to have trouble breathing during times of minimal stress or exercise. In addition, English Bulldogs have trouble breathing and keeping themselves cool in hot temperatures and chill quickly in cold temperatures. English Bulldogs are indoor dogs and do best in moderate climates.
Water Safety for your Bulldog
Second, English Bulldogs are not skilled swimmers due to their front-heavy build. They should not be left unattended near bodies of water, swimming pools, or even full bathtubs.
Bloat or Gastric Torsion
English Bulldogs are at high risk for bloat. Bloat, also called gastric dilatation-volvulus or gastric torsion, is a life-threatening condition.
Bloat is when the stomach becomes twisted, and the gases in the stomach are unable to escape. The pressure from these gases affects the blood flow to the heart, and it can be fatal.
To prevent bloat:
- Avoid feeding your dog right before or after heavy exercise.
- Feed them a few smaller meals a day instead of one large meal to prevent bloat.
- Learn to recognize the symptoms of bloat so you can take action immediately.
Some owners choose to have surgery done to tack their dog’s stomach in place and prevent it from twisting.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Like all dog breeds, English Bulldogs are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs. Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your English Bulldog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.
Typical English Bulldog Allergens
First of all, what causes allergies?
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the fur that dogs shed.
English Bulldogs are moderate shedders and are not considered an allergen-friendly breed. Allergens can be lowered with regular brushing and bathing.
If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.
