The English Bulldog History
The English Bulldog gets its name from their origins in the British Isles. They are descendants from the Mastiffs that originated in Asia and later bred in Germany to create the Boxer as we now know today. Much like the Pitbull the English Bulldog was bred to help butchers control their livestock levels then later used in bull fighting. Their signature under bite provided them with a better grasp on the bulls face or under belly. Although they had a very rough start they make for a great companion whether you live on a small holding or a flat. English Bulldogs were born and bred workers. They are very persistent, brave and have a high pain threshold.
