This breed is ideal for families with children as they require a lot of attention and loving. As puppies, the English Bulldog are very active and requires a lot of exercise. However, they tend to lose some of this energy as they grow older and will do well in small homes. Very much an indoor pet, they prefer moderate temperatures and have trouble in extreme weather conditions.
As lovable as these dogs are, they still tend to drool and slobber, while being messy with their food and snoring loud.
