The English Bulldog is a courageous, kind, loving, and good natured loyal family dog. The standard bulldog should range from 40-50 pounds.
The coat is smooth and the body low-slung and muscular, with a short neck and massive short faced head, wide shoulders and sturdy limbs and walks with a rolling gait.
Bulldogs cannot swim and do not tolerate excessive heat or cold. They are basically an inside dog. They do not drool, but may snore. These are great companion dogs and the perfect dog for a laid back lifestyle, short walks, sitting by the fire with you while you read a book, or just share watching TV from that favorite couch or chair.
