The English Bulldog is distinguished at first glance by its massive head and unevenly larger than the rest of the body which gives it a grumpy air. His lips, always in suspension, are also part of his main features. As soon as we see the animal, we notice a great robustness despite its very short legs.

Given its irritability to heat , the Bulldog should not be regularly taken out in very cool and hot conditions. But when the weather is nice, walks of a few tens of minutes will be of great benefit. But preferably, do not associate it with your jogging session , because its heart is too fragile for this kind of activity.
