Bulldogs - Dog Books for Kids Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Early History Chapter 2 Fascinating Features & Care Chapter... 3 Amazing Yorkie facts Conclusion A Great Companion Author Bio Introduction Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. ~ Roger Caras Bulldogs are heavy set dogs with lots of muscles and a wrinkly face. They have a wide head and shoulders, lots of hanging skin, pointy teeth and droopy eyes. Their coat is shiny and short with varied colors like brindle, red, fawn and white. This breed can weigh between 45- 55 pounds. And a full grown female is about 45 pounds. The name of the dog might make you think isn?t too friendly. But the American Kennel Club says the bulldog?s behavior should be: ?equable and kind, resolute, and courageous (not vicious or aggressive), and demeanor should be pacific and dignified...? So this breed is known as patient, friendly and kind in nature. But these qualities are not by accident. Over the years a lot of work has been done to turn the bulldog into a friendlier pet. Today, it is usually well behaved and has a loving nature. It gets along well with other pets and other dogs. It can also become so attached to its owner that it won?t move without them. And when it comes to affection the bulldog is hard to beat. They would prefer to snuggle next to you than chase a ball around the yard. This is one reason why they are called: Couch potatoes! Bulldogs are known to drool and slobber all over you. They snore when they sleep, they can snort often and they grunt even more. And when they walk, they shuffle from place to place. Add a little bit of gas (often smelly) into the mix, and you have quite an interesting pet in your family home! They also have a hard time with commands. To put it simply: They are stubborn as a bull?dog! But don?t worry. There is no doubt their clownish behavior, goofy antics, crazy faces and courageous nature will bring a smile to your face, and a warm feeling to your heart. For these reasons and more, Bulldogs are recommended as a loving companion, well deserving of the title? man?s best friend! Read More
