Traits of Bull Dog Breeds
When you think about the Bulldog, you probably have a tough, scary dog in your mind. While it is true that Bulldogs are not a dog to mess around with (they were once used to bait bulls!), they are actually very sweet, patient and loving to their masters. Team that up with amazing qualities like courage, strength, tenacity (hence the phrase “stubborn as a bulldog”), you’ve got yourself a pet that you will treasure for life.
Seeing the exceptional traits that Bulldogs have, many breeders have actually developed Bull Dog breeds to suit the taste of different personalities and preferences. While this article is not an opinion piece on whether or not this practice is advisable, all I can say is that the resulting hybrid of dogs have generally come out great and such a benefit to the families that have adopted them.
