English Bully!

R’s family has an English Bulldog, he’s adorable but unfortunately inbred & epileptic. 

(And a whopping 80 lbs, but we have issues with the residents feeding him, and Bullies are short so it’s all stomach!)

Looks like an English Bulldog to me.  They get pretty big (45-60lbs).

a freaking adorable kind! I love English Bulldogs, they’re so dopey and loveable, they’re also very sickly and $$$$ because of vets bills. They’re also $$$ period, like 2-3k I think.

That is an english bulldog!

Our next dog will be a bulldog – they are a medium sized dog due to weight not height! But have a great disposition. However, they do snore and sometimes have bad gas LOL!!!!

@Future Mrs. Martin – oh so true about the snoring and gas!

Go to a local shelter (where you will be saving a life, not to mention they are much cheaper than a pet store that overbreeds the animals which is considered cruelty) and see who you connect with there. Animals have the ability to know right away whether you are a potential match for them or not by your disposition and behavior when you first meet them.

I agree- English bulldog. He’s just tiny because he’s still a baby. The ones I’ve met have all be really fun, nice, dogs! But they are prone to various health problems, unfortunately.

One of the weirdest (and saddest) ones is that they cannot always breed on their own. Because they’re bred to be front heavy (this is the best way I can think to explain it), they cannot always mount each other correctly and have some issues breeding properly- so they have to be artificially inseminated. This is, of course, not true in all cases (but what is?). They also tend to need c-sections when they have babies. I think they’re cute, wonderful, dogs. But, honestly, if a breed of animal can’t really reproduce without outside intervention, I think mother nature is trying to tell us something about the traits we’re breeding for.

@hedgeknits, I completely agree with your thoughts

@hedgeknits – I 100% agree with you. It’s been horribly devastating watching William suffer through his epilepsy, which is a result of the breeding of English Bulldogs. 

Just a note, Bullies can be found in shelters, too. Having one does not necessarily mean you went through a breeder.

I grin whenever I see one of these dogs. English bulldogs are so adorably ugly. I love when their bottom fangs stick out over their top lip.
