The English Bulldog is considered to be among the gentlest of dogs. It is affectionate and gentle with children, and possesses excellent guarding abilities. This Bulldog is truly bullheaded and determined. They do not give up easily on any task. This trait was bred into the breed. Bulldogs seek out human attention and it is required for the breed's happiness. Bullies are good with family pets but may be wary around unknown dogs. Bullies are known for snoring very loudly, drooling, slobbering and being messy eaters. The English Bulldog can live in an apartment as they are an indoor dog and do best in climates where there are no temperature extremes. A walk of moderate distance should be given daily to the Bullie. If not exercised on a regular basis, the dog will have behavior issues. The life expectancy of this breed is about 8 years. They are prone to breathing problems, poor eyesight, heat stroke, skin infections, and hip and knee problems.

The British Isles are the homeland of the English Bulldog which descended from the Asiatic mastiff. The dog was used in bull baiting and was known for being aggressive, ferocious and courageous. The agility of the Bulldog allowed him to pull down an adult bull by running between its legs. The Bulldogs of today have been bred to be calm family pets. The AKC has this breed listed in the Non-Sporting category.
