If you can find one who's face is not overly scrunchy you probably will avoid 90% of the health problems they face.
1) He is fantastic with kids, my 3 year old literally rides him and my bulldog doesn't even flinch
2) He is loyal
3) He is smart! Bulldogs seem to get a negative score on intelligence but i disagree, at least mine is very smart. He has learned he cannot go on the couch, he has learned to do his business outside, he listens when you tell him to go lay down. in fact he listens to basically anything you tell him.
Not sure if all bulldogs love to swim but mine dives right in which is not really a good thing because he sinks and I have had to rescue him from questionable water on multiple occasions. We bought a life jacket for him which worked wonders.
When i adopted him his name was "Mr. Higgins" at the time christopher higgins played for the bulldogs...I felt it was fate.
when my dog passes away, i will really think hard about getting another bulldog. Health problems aside they are really awesome dogs.
Awesome thanks a lot for taking the time to write back! The fact that they are lazy is one of the main reasons I want one lol. I didn't know about the scrunchy face, I'll keep that in mind when I find one! (The water thing, altho dangerous, made me smile; you gotta LOVE dogs!
