As the proud pet parent of one Black Russian Terrier and three adopted cats, I know the immense joy and positive impact pets can have on your family. They not only make us happier in normal times but in stressful times – like the pandemic – their unconditional love and companionship go even further. This National Pet Month, Walmart is excited to celebrate all the pets we’ve welcomed into our homes – new and old – and all my fellow pet parents who understand pets aren’t just pets. They’re family.

Bulldogs are a type of dog that were traditionally developed by farmers to control and subdue bulls and eventually because of their tenacity and agility used for the blood sports of baiting and dog fighting. Today Bull Dogs (commonly called Bullies) are kept for other purposes, including companion dogs, guard dogs and catch dogs. Bulldogs are typically stocky, powerful, square-built animals with large, strong, brachycephalic-type muzzles. It is believed bulldogs were developed during the 16th century Elizabethan era from the larger mastiffs, as smaller, more compact dogs were better suited for controlling cattle and for baiting.
For the purpose of keeping this group focused on the Bullies we will specify that if the dog has "bull" in its breed name it falls into this category and is open to be discussed and explored on this group.
