English bulldog and The English Bulldog Puppy PAST STANDART

The English bulldog and The English Bulldog puppy are known for their tenacity and stubbornness.  Those traits were desired by breeders back in the days who were seeking the ultimate “bullfighting” dog, hence the “BULLDOG” name we all came to love.

Facial configuration was conceived by selective breeding to help reinforce the tight grip of the bulldog to the bulkhead, selection for the flat bulldog nose allowed breathing even while holding the bull by his nose.

This unethical sport is now outlawed
