A sample of the bulldogs at Aretta’s Bulldogs

The Bulldog is the gruff looking old man with the heart of gold.  Very good as family dogs, but like the gruff old man will probably drool but definitely snore.  Like most dogs it will give more than it gets, and thrives on interaction with its family.  Younger dogs enjoy walks, but older dogs are just as happy without one.  Can lean toward being overweight if exercise is reduced.  Will probably want to be the “alpha” dog.  Good apartment dog who does better in a controlled climate than with the highs and lows of the outdoors.  Very easy to groom.

English Bulldog Collection Here at Collectibulldogs we take pride in owning and collecting such a varied and vast selection of all things English Bulldog! We hope the site is a testament to the greatness of the English Bulldog, and inspires others to start their own collections.



We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
