Pros & Cons of a Bulldog | Dog Breeds
I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “”Living with Dogs”” columnist
I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one.
It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now.
I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your
I hope you’ll adopt one soon.
The bulldog or English bulldog is not what
you would call a classically handsome gentleman,
but in fact he so sort of ugly that he is
He has got a really pronounced under bite
he is very wide.
Unfortunately sometimes he gets overweight
so that’s very important if you have a bulldog.
You don’t want him to get overweight because
he will have a hard time breathing.
And just the way they kind of waddle and lumber
along, they are just delightful creatures.
Yale University’s mascot is of course a bulldog
named handsome Dan.
That sort of says it there.
Handsomeness is all in the eye of the beholder.
With bulldogs, they really suffer in hot climates
So, whenever it gets hot where you live you’ve
got to really mind your air conditioning and
You really mustn’t leave them un-airconditioned
when it gets hot because they could actually
die of it.
I’ve actually seen people walking their English
Bulldogs on the streets of New York in the
summer time and the bulldog just flattens
out on the sidewalk.
He just doesn’t want to go any further and
once they get to a certain size it’s not easy
to lift them up and transport them.
So, these are all considerations you want
to take in account with your dog walking schedule.
It’s very doable.
Some big celebrities have them.
Adam Sandler has one.
He dressed his dog up in a tuxedo for his
Howard Stern’s wife Beth Stern has a bulldog
They are quite an odd couple together because
Beth is really tall and thin and then Bianca
is quite the opposite.
People really have a soft spot for these doggies
and as long we take care of them in the right
way, why not have them as a companion.
