FRENCH BULLDOG / Bouledogue français



(FCI group 9)
origin: FRANCE

Typically a small size molossian. Powerful dog for its small size. Sociable, lively, playful, sporty, keen.  Particularly affectionate towards his masters and the children.

Probably issued, like all the mastiffs, from the Epirus and the Roman Empire molosses, relative of the Bulldog of Great Britain, the Alans (tribe of the Middle Age), the mastiffs and small type mastiffs of France, the bulldog we know is the product of different crossings done by enthusiastic breeders in the popular quarters of Paris in the years 1880.
During that period, the Bulldog being a dog belonging to butchers and coachmen of «&les Halles» (market place), he soon knew how to conquer the high society and the artistic world by his particular appearance and character. He then rapidly propagated himself.
The first breed club was founded in 1880 in Paris. The first registration dates from 1885 and the first standard was established in 1898, year in which the «Société Centrale Canine» of France recognized the breed of the French Bulldog. The first shown dog was from 1887. The standard, modified in 1931, 1932 and 1948, was reformulated in 1986 by H.F. Reant and R. Triquet (F.C.I. publication 1987), then in 1994 by the committee of the Club of the French Bulldog with the collaboration of R. Triquet.

ENGLISH BULDOGS / Bulldog



(FCI group 2)
origin: GREAT-BRITAIN

Alert, bold, loyal, dependable, courageous, fierce in appearance, but possessed of an affectionate nature.

All around the world people associate the English Bulldog with a strong “English” character on the one hand and the image of the legendary John Bull on the other. A cartoon-ish appearance coupled with a loving and tender nature as well as openness towards family and friends – this is what makes up a real Bulldog. What is more, the Bulldog has a reputation of a persistent, smart, brave and sturdy dog. Yet, he is also known as an easy-going and at times even gullible creature who loves kids but would also fearlessly defend anyone in need of protection. Many people who had previously considered the Bulldog to be a slow and clumsy breed are surprised to find out how quickly the Bulldog adopts to situations where flexibility and swiftness are most welcome. The Bulldog is a unique breed. You just can’t mistake it for any other!

MALLORCA MASTIFF (Ca de Bou)/
 
Perro dogo mallorquín (Ca De Bou)



(FCI 2. grupa)
origin: SPAIN

A typical Molossian, strong and powerful, of medium size. Quiet by nature, he can under some circumstances be courageous and brave. He is at ease with people, faithful and devoted to his master. As a watch and guard dog, he is unsurpassed. In quiet situations, he is trusting and self assured. When roused, his expression is piercing.

In the 17th century, Minorca and others areas came into British possession, following the treaty of Utrecht. The British brought their own fighting and guard dogs with them into the Balearics and crossed them with the native mastiffs of the Iberian Peninsula, which also occurred in the Balearic Isles. In the beginning of the 18th century, fights between dogs and bulls (bull baiting) were very popular and the Britons inhabiting the Island looked for a breed which would be held suited to such fights. These circumstances explain the name “Ca de Bou”, Bull Dog. In the Spanish Stud Book for the year 1923, the existence of this breed is already established.
The first official entry was in the year 1928 and in 1929, when such a breed was exhibited for the first time at a Dog Show in Barcelona.
