I read very few reference books cover-to-cover but this is a must read for English Bulldog owners, especially first-timers! Packed full of information on how to maintain a happy, healthy, well socialized, and good mannered bulldog. The book also contains a look at the origins of the bulldog, along with famous bulldogs throughout history. This reference guide has it all! There is also a great resource section in the back with links to various websites for further information. And of course, I have to mention all the adorable pictures! What's not to love?? They're so darn ugly you can't help but think they're cute!! Well worth the read!
