"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. There is also a section on holistic medi cin es for th e p rev en ti on and cure of common ailments and diseases. Readers will learn the correct way to show the dog, and gain useful insights into the world of judging. Packed with interesting and useful information for those thinking of buyi ng a pu ppy, or owne rs new and old, (this) is a must for all lovers of the breed."
