This is Polly, she is a 8 year old British bulldog. Her favourite past times include lounging in the sun on her bean bag, meeting new people and being generally lazy. Due to her laziness, she doesn’t like to walk or exercise much but she is a fan of tricking runners on the beach. She has a tendency to sprint alongside of them for a few seconds and then run across their path, cutting them off like a little rascal.


English Bulldog was breeded in the eighteenth century. This dog  belongs to the molossoid. It is a cheerful dog, naturally gentle, quiet, likes children and very attached to his owner. Over 80% of Bulldog litters are delivered by Ceasarean section because their large heads can become lodged in the mother's birth canal. They also often have problems with hip dyspalsia.
