This is one of those breeds that people are mistaken about more than almost any other. From their history of being bred and used for bull baiting they've acquired a reputation for being mean and aggressive
This is a wonderfully gentle dog that makes a great family pet.
English Bulldogs have a unique temperament. People can mistake their often slow response to commands as laziness, but those that know the breed know that these dogs like to consider a command before simply jumping up and doing it, they absolutely cannot be forced to do anything they don’t want to do.
