"Universally acknowledged as representing the British national character, the Bulldog can trace its ancestry back to Roman times. With the prohibition on bullbaiting in the nineteenth century came a decline in the popularity of the Bulldog, almost to the point of extinction. The breed was kept alive by a few dedicated fanciers and has now adapted itself to domesticity and become an affec t i o n a t e companion and an ideal household pet. Whilst Bulldogs are far from vicious, they can display great courage in protecting their owners, families and property should the need arise. This detailed book traces the origins of the Bulldog a nd c om pa re s t he conformation of the Bulldog in the early years with today's standard. The author provides clear information on what to look for when choosing a puppy, care, management and breeding.
