English Bulldogs in Nigeria

The English Bulldog is one of the most popular breeds in Nigeria. Having originated from England, it has found its way into many Nigerian homes because of its adorable features that make it ideal as a pet for both adults and children.

It can be said that English Bulldogs are like teddy bears-cute looking, cuddly and perfect to snuggle with. They are known to drool excessively but it’s not so much as to pose a health risk or messy enough to upset people .

With their childlike character they are regarded as the snackers of the canine world, ready to eat virtually anything within their reach without hesitation. English Bulldogs require little exercise making them ideal pets for those living in small . They love long walks though and one must keep them on leash to protect them from road accidents. English Bulldogs are notorious for their loud snoring and wheezing, which endears many but it might not be an ideal situation for those living in flats or rooms without much space.

Behavior

As English Bulldogs sleep up to eighteen hours a day, they make the best lapdogs-ideal napping partners. English bulldog puppies are especially cute with large heads and short muzzles that give them an innocent look, which makes them even more lovable than adult English Bulldogs. English bulldog breeders in Nigeria will deliver English Bulldog puppies at your doorsteps after proper screening, so this is really helpful if you’re too busy to go searching for English puppy breeders. English Bulldogs are also known to be gentle and patient companions.

English bulldogs do well with other dogs even those that may be larger than them as long as good manners towards their own kind are observed. English bulldog puppies tend to be a bit timid and sensitive, but they respond well to positive training methods. English Bulldog breeders in Nigeria will make sure the English Bulldog puppies are house broken before they are delivered to you.

Grooming, Temperament & Health Issues

English Bulldogs usually have short coats which mean that grooming them is relatively minimal as it barely needs much attention at all . The English Bulldog has a very docile temperament and an under-developed power of reasoning , making it easy for training because English Bulldogs tend to naturally follow their owners without any resistance or resentment.

English Bulldogs require a lot of companionship from people who would play with them often because this is what brings out their best traits as a breed . English bulldogs also need mental stimulation in the form of regular walks, games and training so that they don’t resort to negative behavior like chewing or digging.

English bulldogs are generally healthy but they may fall prey to certain health issues like hip dysplasia , breathing difficulties, cherry eye , eye infections and skin allergies.

About

The English Bulldog is a breed of dog that is descended from the old British bulldog. The old British bulldog was used in baiting bulls, bears, and lions. The English Bulldog has been established as an individual breed for at least 400 years. The French refined the breed during the 19th century, and they were introduced to the United States around 1875. The dog we recognize today as the English Bulldog resulted from this cross-breeding between various breeds like: The Olde English Bulldogge, The American Pit Bull Terrier, and The Staffordshire Bull Terrier (for more on this check out "What Is The Difference Between A Staffordshire Bull Terrier And An American Pitbull?")

Today's modern version of the English Bulldog is known for its large head, loose skin, and compact body. The face of an English bull dog is very distinctive because their eyes are slightly sunken in to their skull. The nose on this breed has a line that runs right down the center which gives it a very "pushed in" look. The jawline forms a distinct "dish" shape when looking at it straight on. The neck area of the English Bulldog is said to be almost nonexistent because of how far it hangs down from the head. The body of an English bull dog is usually low-slung with its front legs being much straighter than what you might find with other breeds. The back legs also noticeably shorter than many other breeds. The tail of the English Bulldog may be either straight or screwed (but never curled, Docked tails are required for show dogs).

This breed has a short, fine coat that can come in virtually any color. The English Bulldog is very well known for its loose skin because it causes the dog to look much larger than it actually is. The skin on their shoulders can hang down to almost their elbows which makes them appear much more massive than they are. The jowls on this breed also make older bulldogs look much older than they actually are . The wrinkles found around an English Bulldogs face give it an expression that seems as if it's sad all the time. The wrinkles even seem to be there when the dog appears happy. The English Bulldog has a waddle that makes it look as if it is smiling. The dog's loose skin can be so pronounced at times that you will see the bulldog's belly extend and retract as he breathes.

Most people who see an English Bulldog for the first time describe them as looking mean or surly, but this breed is actually very calm and usually quite friendly . The English Bulldog isn't known for its strength though because their limited number of working muscles tire easily. When they are active (especially around other dogs) they tend to move at such a slow pace that some might consider them lazy. The short run on most English Bulldogs makes them seem like they're not able to go any faster even when they seem to be running as fast as they can. The English Bulldog is the only breed of dog that has no bark; this means they can't make any sounds at all other than a low grunting noise. The grunting sound made by the English Bulldog is such an identifying feature of the breed that many owners will even grunt for their dogs when it's time for them to come inside or eat! The temperament of the English Bulldog makes him an excellent family pet because he gets along well with children and other pets . The extremely laid-back demeanor of this dog tends to put people and animals off, so if you're looking for a watchdog, keep looking…

The average height and weight can vary depending on what type of cross-breeding the dog has with another breed, but most purebred English Bulldogs will be slightly smaller than what's average. The average height for this breed is about 13 inches at the shoulder with an average weight of around 50-60 lbs . The heaviest recorded bulldog was almost 120 pounds! The world record holder for tallest English Bulldog was 44 inches tall while the shortest reported English Bulldog was only 8 inches tall !

The life expectancy for these dogs is also widely varied depending on their size and genetics. The smallest English Bulldogs tend to live a bit longer because they were bred from a smaller version of a bulldog known as The Olde English Bulldogge which had a much higher life expectancy. The larger variation of this breed tends to have a life expectancy around 8-10 years, but The Olde English Bulldogge could live up to 16 years or more! The English bulldog has a ton of health issues that you will want to research before deciding on whether or not this breed is right for your home. The numerous health problems found with the English Bulldog have been known to shorten their lifespan significantly. The top few problems that owners should be aware of include:

– The most common problem found in the breed is respiratory issues which can shorten a dog's life by several years if not treated early enough. Bulldogs are also very sensitive to heat so they should never be left out in the sun for too long even when it's chilly outside!

– Due to The English Bulldogs extremely broad chest, The English Bulldog cannot give birth to puppies naturally. The mother needs to be artificially inseminated which can cause other health problems for both mother and child if not done correctly.

– The average lifespan of an English Bulldog is between 8 – 10 years old which is a lot shorter than many other breeds. The many health problems that plague this breed could also be a reason why their life expectancy is lower than normal.

– The respiratory issues found in the breed are very common and even fatal to some dogs! They often have trouble breathing because of their short noses and large jowls so owners will need to make sure they see a vet immediately if they notice any odd signs or symptoms during or after exercise. The English Bulldog will pant heavily when they are playing or exercising, but this is normal for them because of the way their body is built and should not cause any alarm to owners. The heavy panting and wheezing noises made by The English Bulldog can be very loud and it could potentially damage your dog's vocal cords so make sure you don't yell at your dog if they start making weird noises! The best thing we suggest doing is giving them a couple ice cubes to help cool down since The English Bulldogs do not sweat like other dogs do. The low body temperature of these dogs also makes them an excellent breed for people who live in warmer climates since keeping them cool takes less effort than with most other breeds.

The English Bulldog is a very laid-back and gentle breed who hates to be in the spotlight. The average height and weight of The Olde English Bulldogge was around 30 pounds for a fully grown dog which is obviously much lighter than The English Bulldogs average height and weight. The Olde English Bulldogge also had a life expectancy that was nearly twice as long as The English Bulldogs making it safe to say that The Olde English Bulldogge was quite a bit healthier than The English Bulldog of today!

This breed tends to get along with other pets, strangers, and children just fine if raised together from birth . Some owners have reported aggressive behaviors from their bulldogs when they are not properly socialized so it's important for The English Bulldog to see a ton of different people from birth in order to calm their instincts down around strangers. The best thing owners can do for The English Bulldog is be patient and loving because they will demand nothing but the same from you! The average weight range of The Olde English Bulldogge was right around 30 pounds which is far lighter than The English Bulldogs average weight today. The Olde English Bulldogge also had a longer lifespan making it a much healthier breed overall when compared to The English bulldog that live an average of 8-10 years or less.

The rapid appearance change of The English Bulldog over just a few generations has been attributed to artificial selection where humans highly prioritize particular features during reproduction so they are passed down to the next generation. The English Bulldog was bred for their fighting abilities while The Olde English Bulldogge was used in dog fighting rings so they both were required to be very strong and stocky while The Olde English Bulldogge had much longer legs than The English Bulldogs do today. The Olde English Bulldogge also had a much wider chest than The English Bulldogs of today, making them more athletic and faster than The Olde English Bulldogges bigger chested ancestors! The Olde English Bulldogge is thought to have been around 200 years old while The English bulldogs average lifespan is just 8 or 10 years.
