Their temperament is fucking The only problem is assholes like Howard who buy ENGLISH and FRENCH bulldogs. Here is a 'Frenchy' The dogs are descendent from the Molosser dogs brought by the Romans, and were breed to fight a bull. It was thought that terrorizing the bull before butchering it would tenderize the meat! The English took them everywhere they went, and when their dispora started to come home, they brought their dogs. England is not a large country, they couldnt keep their large dogs. The English in the late 19th century BASTARDIZED the breed. The breed was shrunk too fast, fucking up their bones, hips, birth canals, skin, etc, etc, they even sent the smallest dogs to France. Meet the AMERICAN BULLDOG There are also Old English Bulldogges, which is a recreating of the early 19th century. Same bulldog temperment, with faical folds that dont fill with gunk and get infected! American Bulldogs are ~$600, English are >$1500, and French can be over $3K, with contracts that say you cant breed them (not that it is an easy process, they can often need doggy c-sections, their pups heads are bigger than the gap in the dogs hips). So when Howchie goes off (on himself) about how horrible the breed is, just remember, its only the assholes who buy the bastardized versions.
