The English Bulldog according to Australian Kennel Standards. Bulldog adults are quiet and rather phlegmatic, spending much of the day snoring on the sofa. Tenacious stubbornness if he decides he really, really doesn't want to do something (Des Hasler) Serious food possessiveness -- Bulldogs should not be fed around small children or other pets . Poor Breeders. Snorting, snuffling, wheezing, grunting, loud snoring. Slobbering and drooling. Persistent Gassiness (flatulence) Farting A multitude of health problems, a short lifespan, and sky-high vet bills. Amazing that this profile fits the current Canterberry Bulldogs, their coach and supporters.
