English Bulldog puppies are loving, alert and confident, with a naturally affectionate nature, making them lovable family dogs. Care must be taken in their first year to set ground rules and fully socialise an English Bulldog puppy so they can grow into well-rounded dogs.

English Bulldog adult
Adult English Bulldogs are smooth-coated, thickset and rather low in stature, with a powerful and compact appearance. This breed tends to be incredibly gentle with children of all ages, and loves to spend as much time as they can around their owners.
English Bulldog health and ageing
English Bulldogs are considered to be ageing dogs when they reach ten years old. With age, your English Bulldog may experience some hearing loss and vision impairment.
This is common in older dogs but will impact their lifestyle and how much they are able to do. You may also notice reduced motivation to exercise, often due to stiffer joints, so it is important to make sure your ageing dog is kept comfortable to ease any joint pains.
