Bulldog Mix

When two different and specific breeds are crossed to create a litter that exhibits the fine qualities of both parents, the resulting puppies are considered a hybrid breed. In the case of the bulldog mix, one parent must be a bulldog. In recent years, the popularity of hybrid mixes has soared, but bulldogs have been in existence for at least five centuries. Bulldogs originated in England, and they are descendants of the ancient mastiff. The early bulldogs were ferocious and aggressive, and they were bred this way to combat bulls in the arena, hence the breed's name. Today's bulldog is much more placid. The bulldog was recognized by the American Kennel Club as a member of the non-sporting group in 1886.

A bulldog mix will inherit some physical characteristics from the bulldog parent. These characteristics may include a large head, a pushed in face loose skin and wrinkles. Bulldogs are compact and muscular. They are considered medium-sized dogs, and they weigh 40 to 50 pounds. They have short coats that may be brindle, fallow, piebald, white, fawn or red in color. The tips of their ears flip downward. Personality: Any bulldog mix is going to inherit some of the bulldog parent's temperament traits. Bulldogs are good-natured, strong, powerful and courageous dogs. They are excellent with children, and they get along with other dogs and cats. They are protective of their families and make excellent watchdogs. They are outgoing with strangers, and they bark minimally. They do not require much exercise.

Bulldogs require minimal grooming. If your bulldog mix inherits the short coat, weekly use of a grooming mitt will collect dead hair and maintain the healthy luster of the coat. All dogs should have their teeth brushed at a minimum of three times a week to prevent periodontal disease and maintain good oral health and overall well-being.

Common Health Conditions in Bulldog Mixs

If you decide to welcome a bulldog mix into your family, understand that all of the health conditions of the bulldog may potentially be handed down to your puppy. Some of these conditions include skin allergies, bladder stones, eye problems, malformations of the knee and hip joints, cancer and gastric torsion, or bloat. If your bulldog mix has the brachycephalic, or pushed in, face of a bulldog, then you will need to be alert for breathing difficulties, particularly during hot seasons. The bulldog\'s average lifespan is somewhat short at 8 to 10 years.
