The Bulldog was first noted around 1500 in literature, referred to with its old spelling Bondogge or Bolddogge. It wasn’t until 1631 that the modern spelling was written in a letter. The Old English Bulldog was initially used for the sport of bull baiting, which involved tying numerous Dogs to a bull, and placing wagers on which one would pin the animal by latching onto its snout. Being bred for this purpose for centuries, the breed developed its thick body and massive jaws, as well as a vicious demeanor. After the sport was deemed cruel and banned in 1835, the Bulldog lost its usefulness as a working animal and was later cross-bred with the pug. The result was a more rotund breed that retained the tough appearance of the Old English Bulldog, but lost its aggressiveness and athleticism.
Appearance
Bulldogs are one of the few breeds whose tail is naturally short and either straight or screwed and thus is not cut or docked as with some other breeds. A straight tail is a more desirable tail according to the breed standard set forth by the BCA if it is facing downward, not upwards.
