    Default Bulldogs are not fearless.

    I am the very happy owner of a British Bulldog and my wife and i adore him.
    It's very funny as the general population of dog owners think that this is a fierce breed.
    They are not brave, heroic dogs they are expected to be going by their appearance.
    I hope the link works. It shows their true nature.

    Youngest daughter has an English bulldog and it's as soft as sh**te, runs the house, sleeps 15 hours a day, barks wanting a treat whenever the fridge door is opened or if she sees her reflection in a mirror.

    May not be as many think i know, but one thing for sure if they latch on to something (Like another Dog) they very seldom let go, as their short Snout (Face) gives them an edge on others with longer Snouts, as in it is much much harder to get the Jaw Open !
    Great Dogs . I love them, although i dont have one the little Pug is also short snouted and also has that ability to latch on tightly!

    A vet once told me to unlatch a dog with a good grip get a stick an whack the said dog across their rear end. Preferably under the tail including anything in that area....he assured me works a treat. LOL

    As a lad we had both dogs and cats.
    But we have only had cats since we were married.
    All have in one way or another been recuse cats.
    This current one though is very different, some cross breed with all sorts in him including either Siamese or Burmese.
    Had a Unrinary Tract infection and three days in vet hospital, cost me an arm and a leg plus a knee cap.
    But had I not had it done he would have croked in terrible pain and her indoors would not have been happy.
    He follows her around like a dog.
    It has ben said,
    Dogs have masters, cats have staff'

    Oh so very true.

    #7 Des so true.
    I X-rayed a baby down here a few years ago same thing attacked by said breed. Poor mite was saved by being so small it's skull sutures were not fused so the brain was able to swell and the little mite survived. It had lots of small holes in it's cranium consistant with the dog's teeth marks.
    The dog belonged to the mother's "boyfriend" and he didn't get rid of it even after the attack. Beggars belief.
    I suggested if she really loved her child to move out immediately....sadly she probably didn't.
    All dogs that do that need to be put down immediately as once done they will not hesitate to do the same thing again.

    Has happened far to often in the UK. Pit Bulls attacking children. If they do it is always the case that the dog is destroyed. Shame the owners did not suffer the same fate. The dogs are not the problem it is how they are treated and trained is the problem. Why is it usually the little dogs that will kick off.

    I am of the opinion that any dog no matter the breed can be controlled and kept good by an owner who is prepared to take time to train them correctly.
    Too many get a dog and just allow kit to go on the way it wishes, these sort of people should not be allowed t own one.
    If you have children you train them, or should though some do not, the same applies to a dog
