English Bulldogs

Among the oldest breeds native to the UK the English Bulldog is considered a national treasure. In fact the breed is Great Britain's National dog known the world over as the personification of determination as well as being a constant reminder of the legendary John Bull. The shorter faced and squatter dog we see today came about in the mid eighteen hundreds and English Bulldogs first appeared in the show ring in 1860.
