The Bulldog was originally used to drive cattle to market and to compete in a bloody sport called bullbaiting. Today, they're gentle companions who love kids. Even though these are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt! Don't shop if you want to bring a dog home. A brief walk and a nap on the sofa is just this dog breed's speed. Bulldogs can adapt well to apartment life and even make great companions for novice pet parents. They're affectionate with all members of the family and are fairly low-maintenance pups. Just make sure to keep them out of extreme weather, and also give them enough exercise, as weight gain is a risk with these dogs who are happy to spend most of the day on the couch.
