When considering the variety of breeds of bulldog, French, Olde English, and English, the potential owner should be aware of the several differences. The size of these three breeds is the greatest differences. If you prefer a smaller dog, the Frenchie is the best option. The Frenchie averages 22 to 26 pounds, and their physical appearance is characterized by natural ‘bat ears’ that are pointy and stick straight up. Their tails are naturally short, not cropped. However, their body shape is similar to that of a bulldog. The Olde English is on the larger end of the scale, and the English falls in the middle. The Olde English Bulldogge is a muscular, medium-sized dog of great strength, stability and athleticism. It has well-balanced and proportioned body with no exaggerated features. Due to this feature, it was originally used in bull baiting, a sport of Medieval Europe. Like the Olde English Bulldogge, the English bulldog was also used in bull baiting, and the term “bulldog” comes from the build of their bodies. However, the English bulldog is considered a medium-sized dog, but have a massive head and body with extra skin on both sides of the skull and forehead falling in folds. Whichever breed you prefer, the French, Olde English, or English Bulldog, all do well with people and are very affectionate towards their owners.
