A brief presentation of the English Bulldog Terrier

English Bulldog Terriers are a combination of Bulldog and Bull Terrier. It's an extremely friendly, playful hybrid that can sometimes be aggressive. Nevertheless, English Bulldog Terriers get on well with dogs and humans alike. In fact, they are known for their fierce loyalty to their owners and other family members. These dogs are relatively large, with an average lifespan of 8 to 14 years, a weight of 22.5 to 27 kilos and a height of 38 to 48 centimeters. They are robust animals with short coats that come in many color combinations. Excellent pets, they thrive in family environments where they are regularly exercised and frequently confirmed.

History of the English Bulldog Terrier

The name English Bulldog Terrier is a combination of the parent breeds, the Bulldog and the Bull Terrier, also known as the English Bull Terrier, Bully or Gladiator. The English Bulldog Terrier is likely to have been bred for decades, given the parent's long history in the same geographic regions. However, they are not a popular hybrid today and have not stabilized in form or personality.
        

A little of the English Bulldog

        
The origin of the Bulldog is widely debated. The American Kennel Club, however, maintains that the Bulldog originated in the British Isles and was originally bred for bull-baiting, a sport in which Bulldogs attacked bulls, or in some cases bears, by the nose. This cruel game was eventually banned, and the Bulldog was adopted by admirers as a companion dog in the mid-1800's. They were recognized by the AKC in 1886.

A little of the Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier was originally a white-haired cross between Bulldogs and various Terriers, first known as "Bull-and-Terriers". Eventually, they were mixed with Spanish Pointers to increase their size. These dogs gained popularity in the early 1800s when they were used for sport and dog fighting in Europe. After dogfighting was banned, the Bull Terrier became a fashionable companion for members of high society because of its impressive white coat. In 1885, Bull Terriers were recognized by the American Kennel Club. Later, they were bred with Stafford Bull Terriers to develop more color variations. Today, the white Bull Terrier remains the most popular and best-known Bull Terrier.

Appearance of the English Bulldog Terrier

English Bulldog Terriers have a Bull Terrier build with many Bulldog characteristics. In particular, English Bulldog Terriers have a relatively flat forehead, a deep jaw and a short, broad muzzle with a prominent underbite, just like that of a Bulldog. They also have high hanging ears and half-moon eyes. These dogs are tall and muscular, with thick necks and broad chests. Average weight is between 22.5 and 27 kilos, and average height between 38 and 48 centimeters. Their short coats are straight, fine and coarse to the touch. They can be found in multicolored combinations of fallow, fawn, beige, black, white, red with brindle, piebald or ticked patterns and black and white markings. Their legs are medium-sized and compact, and their tails are generally short and well coated.

Temperament of the English Bulldog Terrier

English Bulldog Terriers are known to be friendly and loyal, especially to their owners. Because this dog is large and muscular, it can be intimidating to some, however, English Bulldog Terriers are extremely gentle - if sometimes overly exuberant when meeting new friends - furry or otherwise. They are relatively active, having inherited a good mix of the calm of their Bulldog parent and the vivacity of their Bull Terrier parent. As such, this breed benefits from a healthy mix of exercise and downtime. Indeed, they can adapt to any type of living environment provided they receive sufficient attention and exercise. Their desire to please makes them adept at learning commands and overall obedience training - early and consistent training will consolidate this desirable trait. Beyond that, these dogs have a moderate to high hunting impulse, so it's best to supervise them when off-leash or in close proximity to small animals and young children.

Needs and activities of the English Bulldog Terrier

These strong dogs have a moderate amount of energy, love to play and run a high risk of gaining weight. As a result, this breed needs daily exercise to stay happy and healthy. They'll enjoy a walk around the neighborhood, indoor play sessions or a stroll in the dog park. Note, however, that this breed is very sensitive to heat and prone to respiratory ailments. As such, they need to be closely supervised whenever they engage in vigorous exercise. What's more, English Bulldog Terriers love to snuggle up to their owners and need the affection of their family as much as they need exercise.

Maintenance of the English Bulldog Terrier

The English Bulldog Terrier is a relatively low-maintenance breed. Their short coats, which are not hypoallergenic, do not generally require trimming or styling. Occasional brushing can help reduce the breed's moderate shedding and keep its coat in perfect condition, although this is not always necessary. Owners should strive to bathe their sturdy companion once a month or as needed. As with all breeds, they should have their teeth brushed daily and their nails trimmed once or twice a month. Note that this dog may have a tendency to drool and wrinkles around the face. If this is the case, owners should take extra precautions to clean their pet's face to avoid bacterial build-up and subsequent infection.
