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. First one, they almost always have to be delivered by c-section and bred with AI (artificial insemination) , which makes them very expensive to buy and breed. Bulldogs are also very prone to overheating and heat stroke and should not be left in the heat. I have also noticed a problem with demodectic mange due to their inbreeding and I have also found some that are deaf.
