What makes the Bulldog so Special?

bb

As a Bulldog Addict, I talk a lot about my Fur Bully Babies. And a lot of times I get the question: but why Bulldogs? What is it that makes the Bulldog so special? First of all, I have to state I love all animals and all dogs, but the Bulldog has a special place in my heart. Why? Well I’m gonna try to explain allthough I have to state in advance, the only way to truly understand a Bulldog Addict, is to become one yourself. You have to own one to understand it. Let me rephrase that last sentence; you have to care for a Bulldog to understand the Bulldog love. No one really owns a Bulldog ;-) That’s one of the reasons I love them so much. Here are some more reasons I think the Bulldog breed is so special.

Social Dog
All dogs are social animals by nature, but the Bulldog takes this to a whole new level. The Bulldog is and wants to be everyone’s friend, no matter if you are human or animal, the Bulldog will try to socialize with you. Allthough they might look tough they are all softy inside and are not afraid to show and share it. I have seen Bulldogs become friends with guinea pigs, rabbits, sheep and other farm animals. This loving and social character is what makes the Bulldog such a great Family dog. They are exceptionally loving and caring with people, little kids and elderly people, dogs and other animals.

Devotion and Loyalty
The Bulldog is extremely devoted and loyal to it’s Family. A Bulldog is happy when it’s with his Family it loves to get affection and be around the daily activities. You can have all the toys in the world, acres of playground and plenty of excersize but a Bulldog without it’s Family is an unhappy dog. The Bulldog is the ideal companion, always happy to see you and he is happy when you are happy. Try doing a work out on the floor, bring in groceries, take a nap on the couch or do chores around the house, .. you will never have to those things alone again. A Bulldog wants to encage in your activities and wants to be a part of it all.

Crazy Time
At least once a day Bulldogs have what I call ‘Crazy Time’. With James and Bean it is clockwork, after their ‘after dinnernap’ they will go into crazy mode. The best way to describe this is your Bulldog will have fun in goin nuts. This can be done in several ways.. James will usually grab his blanket, throws it on its own head and will roll around, so ill have a little barking ghost rolling around the living room. Bean usually does sprints and jumps in her crazy time. Jumping on and off the couch and running and jumping around with her butt low like a crazy bunny. Some video examples of Bulldog and their ‘Crazy Times’.

Wait for the Hilarious ending ;-)

Face and Expression
Bulldogs have such a Beautiful face. Their characteristic and distinguished faces really gives them the most diverse and cute facial expressions. Their loving eyes, those wrinkles and floppy cheeks, it is all part of the Bulldog charme. It is no coincidence that Bulldogs are frequenly used as mascottes, in commercials etc., the Bulldog’s Face speaks to everyone and says it all.

Laid back and Relaxed
Allthough it is a misconception that Bulldogs are Lazy and low energy dogs, Bulldogs do love to chill and relax. Laid back, would still be an understatement for the Bulldog. Have a crazy and stressful life and want to chill out? Get a Bulldog. The Bulldog will teach anyone how to relax and chill properly. They are calm, gentle and laid back by nature in such a way they will have the same effect on their surroundings.

Emotional Philosophers
The Bulldog might look tough in appearance but in reality is not tough at all. Bulldogs are very emotional dogs. They easily pick up on human vibes and emotions. They are easily scared and can be real wimps. A lot of people label the Bulldog as stubborn, but in my personal opinion, they are not stubborn but they do have a strong will. A Bulldog has to see the purpose of an action or following a command if not it will refuse.  Bulldogs are real thinkers. You don’t give commands to a Bulldog you come to agreements with them ;-)

The Bulldog Sound
One more thing that makes the Bulldog special is their Sound. Allthough a Bulldog will rarely bark they do know how to talk. They have their own language which sounds hilarious. To understand it you have to watch, listen and learn: Bully Talk

Forever Babies
Bulldogs are forever Babies, yes they grow up but on the inside a Bulldog will keep those childlike features forever. They will stay untroubled, keep exploring and want to be Daddy’s or Mommy’s little Baby Bull forever. They also tend to keep up the childish behaviour of having Tantrums by the way ;-)

For me, the English Bulldog is THE dog. No words can describe the connection I feel with these dogs. They are truly one of a kind.

  4. My husband and I brought a bully into our lives over 7 years ago. We now have two bully boys and can’t imagine going back to being pet ‘owners’ again. Everything you have said here is absolutely true! Our bullies mean the world to us and we love sharing every moment together.

    Thank you for representing their personalities so well.

  7. we do not own a bulldog, a bulldog owns us. WE adopted our Bully almost 4 years ago, and I am totally in love with this guy. He has his own and very different personality, and character. He is such a loving bully, and I would never have anything but a bulldog ever again. He is the best companion, best little buddy ever. When I bring home groceries, he personally goes through every single bag just to make sure no spiders or other dangerous animals have crept into the bag. I do not know what he would do if he did come across anything as he is the biggest ” fraddie cat” there is. He is very talkative and reminds me of Chewy the Starwars creature. EVeryone that meets him loves him, he lives up to his name “John Wayne” every single day!!!!

  8. You hit the nail right on the head! There is no other breed like the English Bully. My sweet baby is 2 and has me wrapped around all four of those paws. The love and bond is such a great feeling. He keeps us laughing all the time! I personally don’t know what I’d do with out him! Thank you for representing the breed so well!
