The English bulldog Puppies

Adult English bulldogs

As many other breeds, Bulldogs do not mature quickly and will remain active puppies until around the age of three. Once mature, they are very laid-back dogs that are well-known for their loyal companionship and excellent treatment of children.

If your want to maintain clean and sanitary environment for your child, then English bulldogs may not be the best option for you. Bulldogs also are very possessive of their food, therefore, they should never be fed around children, as they may touch or approach them while they are eating.
