Bulldogs are one of my most favorite breeds. I think they are so funny and super cute!! I always get super excited to take care of them just like all dogs but the puppies are ridiculous!!! I just came across an article about bulldogs and their history. They were bred like pitbulls to protect livestock. They also took part in bull baiting like pit bulls. A trained dog would latch onto another dogs nose and they would not let go until the bull had pulled the other to the ground or they had killed the other dog. This was banned in 1835 thank goodness! They were bred for aggression which is hard to believe. The bulldog today american and english, have become a popular companion and working animal. They are also famous for several mascots such as mack trucks and u.s. marines.
