In this video, I am going to talk about the
lifespan of the English bulldog. What we now know as the English bulldog has
existed since the 1200’s – that’s 8 centuries! But they do tend to live a slightly
shorter life on average than other dog breeds. The English Bulldog should be expected to
live 8 – 10 years on average. Some live as long as 12 or even more. Some, unfortunately,
live less than 8 years. English bulldogs are susceptible to a variety
of health problems which can reduce their life expectancy.
A careful inspection of the family history of your bulldog should help you understand
what to expect. Consider avoiding English bulldog puppies where a history of health
problems or less-than-average lifespan occurred. Regular check-ins at the veterinarian, a healthy
diet, and frequent exercise all will help your English bulldog live a long life.
At this point, you’ve learned a great deal about the lifespan of an English bulldog.
