Sleepy Dog

This is my friend Whitney, who has a blog about choosing a dog, so she decided to do a guest post about dog care on my blog:

Hey guys! Well if you'll go to my blog, you'll see the video that Jarrett found with the English Bulldog. It's so cute! But in case you didn't know, here's some information about the English Bulldog:

General Information:

* Protective, Affectionate, Gentle, Determined
* Related to French Bulldog
* Have an underbite
* Short coat
* Energetic when puppies
* Height: 12-15 inches
* Weight: 52-55 pounds


* Prone to breathing problems
* Sensitive to heat and cold
* Skin infections
* Hip and knee problems
* Easily overheat
* Drools


* Brush with brittle brush or rough cloth
* Wipe with cloth between wrinkles
* Average shedder


* Good for apartments
* Better indoors because of sensitivity to weather

Type of Owner:

* Great with kids
* Need pack leader or can become too defensive and stubborn

Maybe now you can see why I love Bulldogs so much. I''m not an outdoors person, so this dog actually fits in with my lifestyle. And I really would like an indoor dog, so keeping it inside with me is not a problem. They're just so cute, even if they are stubborn. Maybe they're like having a child! So perhaps this dog would be a great fit for couples wanting to practice being parents. Bulldogs may be considered lazy by some standards, but they definitely have the looks and affection to make up for any of their faults.

Hope you guys enjoyed!
