Bulldogs are one of the most recognizable breeds, with their stocky build, striking underbite, floppy lips, and wrinkled faces. The bulldog hails from the U.K., where they’re considered a mascot of sorts. Many compared British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the bulldog for his unwavering persistence and gruff charm.
Bulldogs range in size from 40 to 50 pounds—they’re short but hefty. Despite their brusque look, they’re incredibly loving towards owners and family members, particularly children. Bulldogs were the fourth most popular breed in 2015, according to the AKC.
