Bulldog

The Bulldog is a relatively small but stocky breed, with a compact body and short, sturdy limbs.

Their shape results in a waddle-like gait.

Bulldogs are known for their short muzzles and the saggy skin on their faces, creating the apparent "frown" that has become a trademark of the breed.

Contrary to classic cartoon parodies that depicted the bulldog as ferocious and wearing a spiked dog collar, the bulldog is not a vicious dog breed and gets along well with humans, including children, and usually other dog breeds.
