Bulldog - Guide to Bulldogs

BulldogDescription: The Bulldog's heritage lies in England where it descended from the Alaunt, which was a Mastiff-type dog. The Bulldog got its name because it was an apt cattle driver as well as a hunter of wild boar. From the 13th century on, the breed's qualities were specifically bred so that it was an able contestant in bull-running, bull-baiting and pit fighting. When all of these activities were banned, the Bulldog's status would have dwindled had it not been for the efforts of a few staunch Bulldog-loving fanciers. The Bulldog Club held fast to the breed and it was among one of the first few recognized by the English Kennel Club in 1873. The breed has been popular in North America since the end of the 19th Century. The Bulldog fits in well just about anywhere. His lovable personality makes him a good family pet. This athletic dog should be exercised regularly.

Height: The height of a Bulldog is 12 - 14" (30.5 - 35.6cm)

Weight: The weight of a Bulldog is 55 lbs (24.6 kg) for dogs and 45 lbs (20.1 kg) for bitches

Coat Type: The Bulldog's coat is short all over, smooth, dense and shiny. Colors range from red brindle to white to red, and sometimes black. A weekly rub-down is all that is needed in the grooming department.

Temperament: Although originally bred as a fighting-type dog, the Bulldog should be neither aggressive nor vicious. On the other hand, it is courageous and determined, friendly and easy to get along with.

Health Problems: Th...

French Bulldog - Guide to French Bulldogs

Description: French Bulldogs are sturdy, compact, heavy boned and muscular. They have a short face, a snub nose and perky ears which resemble bat ears. They appear alert, interested and intelligent.

While there are a few theories which exist surrounding the origins of the French Bulldog, it appears it all began in England. Around 1860, it is thought that workers from England traveled to France seeking jobs. They brought with them their smaller bulldogs known to be excellent ratters and loyal family companions. It is likely these dogs were of the toy variety of the English Bulldog since they were largely popular in England at the time. These toy Bulldogs were mixed with various breeds in France (including French Terriers) and were recognized as Boule-Dog Francais.

Intense controversy swirled around the two different types of ears these dogs had - rose ears and bat ears. Europeans favored the rose type while the Americans opposed it and steadfastly favored the bat type. Ultimately, the Americans won and it is these 'bat type' ears which is one of the French Bulldog's most distinctive key features (along with its skull).

The first club devoted to the French Bulldog was created by the Americans in April of 1897. Their members were wealthy men of prominent social standing. The dispute over English Bulldog's ears was the reason for this club's formation and because of the intense controversy, media coverage thrust the English Bulldog into the spotlight helping to make this breed ever more popular.

Height: Distance from withers to ground in good relation to distance from withers to onset of tail, so that French Bulldog appears compact, well balanced and in good proportion. Generally 12 in (30cm) - what is important is that size should be in proportion with weight.

Weight:
The weight of a French Bulldog should not exceed 28 lbs (13kg) - which is according to the American Kennel Club's and the Canadian Kennel Club's standards. The general weight range for this breed is between 20lbs and 28lbs (9.07kg - 13kg).

Coat Type:
The French Bulldog's coat is short, smooth, moderately fine, soft and glossy. Skin is soft and loose and is more concentrated around the shoulders and the head, forming wrinkles. Grooming is minimal and only require regular brushing. The French Bulldog is an average shedder.

Color:
Acceptable colors for the French Bulldog - All brindle, fawn, white, brindle and white, and any color except those which constitute disqualification. All colors are acceptable with the exception of solid black, mouse, liver, black and tan, black and white, and white with black, which are disqualifications. Black means black without a trace of brindle. AKC standard

Temperament: French Bulldogs are sociable, playful, lively and intelligent. These well-behaved, companion dogs are good with children (although they may play too rough for small children), other pets and strangers. They have a happy-go-lucky attitude...
