Reasons To Love Bulldogs

April 15, 2022

Did you know that April 21st is Bulldogs Are Beautiful Day? As you may know, we definitely have a soft spot for these lovable pooches here at Heron Lakes Animal Hospital! While all of our canine pals are adorable, there’s just something about bulldogs that can melt hearts. Those big, expressive eyes, their wrinkles, their chubby cheeks, their wrinkles, their round noses … their wrinkles … whatever it is, bulldogs are definitely charming. A local Coral Springs, FL vet lists some of the reasons to celebrate Fido below.

They’re Calm

If you want an active dog that will run and play and accompany you on hikes, well, a bulldog may not be the best match. In fact, these guys tend to be furry couch potatoes. Fido will spend most of his time either napping, eating, or thinking about napping and eating.

They’re Great Family Pets

One of the bulldog’s best features is their calm, stoic personas. While every dog is unique, many bulldogs are pretty bombproof. They also make great family pets, as they are often tolerant of even the most rambunctious toddler. (Note: regardless of how good your canine buddy is, you will need to supervise all interactions between him and his tiny humans.)

They’ve Been Our Buddies For A While

Bulldogs were among the first breeds to be accepted by the AKC. They were admitted over 135 years ago, back in 1886.

Comedy Relief

Another one of Fido’s special talents? The ability to make us laugh. Whether bulldogs are having a temper tantrum over a lost plushy, snoring in their beds, or confused by the cat, something in their innocent, clumsy tenacity just puts smiles on our faces.

They’re Great For Apartments

Because of Fido’s low (okay, nonexistent) energy levels, he won’t really need much room. While bulldogs do enjoy having yards to patrol, they do just fine in a small living space.

They’re Brave

Bulldogs are also known for being courageous and tenacious. They make wonderful watchdogs, and are known for being protective in a gentle way.

The Perfect Mascot

Bulldogs have been chosen as the doggy icons. Fido is the official mascot of the U.S. Marine Corps. Winston Churchill also picked the bulldog as Britain’s mascot back in World War II.
