We have one male bulldog that is 11, and his "white girlfriend" is 8. After we had a few years of experience with the male, we decided to get a second one because we were just so enthralled with how fantastic they are. Relatively easy to train in regard to potty training, sit, shake, etc., but we had some difficulties with the female once outside. She is always determined to do whatever she wants, regardless of what the humans say!
In this case, our male has lucked out with good health and a wonderful respiratory system, which is very rare in the purebred english bullies. With our female, she's had to have surgery to open up her nasal passages and reduce the size of her tongue, as she used to choke whenever she put her head back. Even though she's a purebred, these are the things that are common with this breed.
Overall, both dogs are great companions and are well behaved with any people or other dogs, so long as there are no food bowls in between. There is some mild shedding, which is nothing compared to some breeds. If you're in for a goofy companion and looking for some laughs, bullies are the way to go!
