Bulldogs are known for their short muzzles and the saggy skin on their faces, creating the apparent "frown" that has become a trademark of the breed. They have a short stocky appearance with short legs. Bulldogs are originally from England and was brought to the United States where the standard of the breed was changed.
Bulldogs are very loyal to their owners and are very good natured. They can be so attached to home and family that they will not venture out of the yard without a human companion. They are not as intelligent as you might want them to be or they just don't want to exert any effort at all. They can be trained but you need to know the proper way to catch their attention especially for the older dogs.

They seldom bark and this makes them suitable for living in the apartments where neighbors are sensitive to noise. They love children and other animals and are mostly good tempered and docile.
Some Bulldogs drool while others do not. This characteristic is not apparent while they are still puppies and there is no way to know what they will turn out to be when they grow up.
