Bulldogs are considered to be friendly and calm dogs and as a result make good family pets. For this reason they rank as one of the most popular dog breeds.
One of their cutest attributes…their short snout sets them apart from other breeds in that owners need to take special precautions. Bulldogs can have difficulty breathing, especially in hot climates. For this reason steep hills, staircases and even water deep enough to swim in can present hazards to the bulldog.
