Originally bred for in the British Isles for “bull baiting”, they were ferocious dogs with an insensitivity to pain. When dog fighting became illegal, breeders selectively chose the gentle disposition and eliminated the ferocious nature. Now bulldogs are wonderful family pets with a gentle dispositions. They do have a few problems due to their genetics and the large head and flat faces.
