The English Bulldog has roots in 13th century England when these muscular, strong dogs were used in the now forbidden blood sport of bull-baiting. After the ban on this pastime, the English Bulldog found a new role as a companion. The English Bulldog first appeared in the United States in the 1800s and was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1886. Now, this traditional coat of arms of England is kept in many families as a beloved and devoted pet.
Unfortunately, the English Bulldog’s trademark crushed face and wrinkled eyebrow can lead to various diseases. For this reason, hybrids have been created with the aim of producing healthier animals that retain many of the best qualities of purebreds. We’ve identified 18 of the best and most popular English Bulldog crosses.
