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.

This is a general group to in which we can discuss the care, health and welfare of our dogs. They give us so much joy and challenge us to be better people so lets share ideas and information about how we can be better dogs owners. From the AVMA:  Animal welfare means how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it lives. An animal is in a good state of welfare if (as indicated by scientific evidence) it is healthy, comfortable, well-nourished, safe, able to express innate behavior, and if it is not suffering from unpleasant states such as pain, fear, and distress. Good animal welfare requires disease prevention and veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter, management, nutrition, humane handling, and humane slaughter. Animal welfare refers to the state of the animal; the treatment that an animal receives is covered by other terms such as animal care, animal husbandry, and humane treatment.1 Protecting an animal's welfare means providing for its physical and mental needs. Ensuring animal welfare is a human responsibility that includes consideration for all aspects of animal well-being, including proper housing, management, nutrition, disease prevention and treatment, responsible care, humane handling, and, when necessary, humane euthanasia.
