Bulldogs are usually described as courageous and friendly. They are one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Easy to recognize, bulldogs are medium-sized animals with muscular bodies, large heads, and massive necks, all placed a short distance from the ground.
Bulldogs were first registered with the American Kennel Club in 1886, just eleven years after the Civil War ended. They are considered a non-sporting breed, one of seven breed types, but truly a catch-all for dogs that don‚Äôt fit well in the other six breed types. The other types include Sporting, such as the retrievers; Hounds, such as the beagle; Working, like the Siberian husky; Terriers, such as the Scottish terrier; Herding, like the border collie; and the Toy group, which includes Chihuahuas. Some of the dog breeds have strayed far from their original purposes, but these breed categorizations recognize what the breeds were first created to do.
