Despite their somewhat grumpy faces, bulldogs are very kind and gentle. They crave human affection and seek lots of attention. If pestering you doesnt get a bulldog what it wants, it may turn to more destructive behaviors, such as chewing. This is not a breed that will entertain itself in the backyard all hours of the day and night. Anyone who acquires a bulldog must plan to spend a fair amount of time and energy with it.
