English bulldogs are born with naturally occurring short and curly tails. Their coats are short, flat and smooth and exhibit a range in color from red, cream and white to a brindle mix that appears in uneven stripes or waves.
An English bulldog's face is wide as is his body. The characteristic facial creases require bi-monthly cleaning. English bulldogs, despite their rather dour expression, are easy-going and friendly. A typical, full-grown male weighs an average of 50 pounds, and females weigh about 45 pounds. They do not require a great deal of physical exercise, which makes them a perfect pet for apartment and urban residents.
