Also known as the English bulldog, a bulldog today, unlike its ancestors, has a friendly and gentle disposition. The bulldog is a wonderful family pet and loving to most children. People-oriented as a breed, they actively solicit human attention. Bulldogs, being a low- endurance breed, make do well in apartments as they do not require the outdoors. Only a moderate amount of exercise is sufficient for bulldog. The breed thrives best in temperate climates as they has a tendency to overheat and have breathing difficulties in hot weather. They are moderate shedders and do not require much grooming. However, the wrinkles on the face should be wiped regularly to prevent skin infections.
