Temperament: Kind, courageous, never vicious or aggressive, with a dignified and peaceful expression. Snoring, farting and burping are trademarks of the breed.
Appearance and Size: A Bulldog should display stability, vigor, and strength. They should be low slung with a thick, heavy body, massive head, wide heavy shoulders, sturdy legs, short face and upturned lower jaw. The males should weigh about 50 pounds, the females about 40 pounds.
Colour: Red brindle, brindle, white, red, fawn, fallow, piebald (primarily white with coloured patches).
Coat: short, brilliant and shiny. Monthly bathing with a gentle shampoo, wrinkle maintenance and weekly nail trimming is a must.
Exercise: Bulldogs are an indoor breed, they are heat and cold sensitive. Short daily walks in appropriate weather and a healthy diet is enough to keep your bulldog in good muscle tone and weight.
Crate Training: Recommended from puppyhood and for safe travel.
Training & Obedience: Early Puppy Classes are recommended for socialization. Bulldogs are very food motivated and learn quickly as young puppies. They are stubborn but can do well in obedience, rally, barn hunt and many other dog sport events.
