English Bulldog Names
The English bulldog is the most recognizable member of the bulldog family. You're likely to see this breed represented at colleges around the country (University of Georgia or Yale), or on Disney, as Pluto's nemesis, Butch the Bulldog. The English bulldog is a medium-sized breed, usually between 40-50 pounds with short legs and a stocky body.
French Bulldog Names
The French bulldog is popular in urban areas because of their small size. Goofy and smart, Frenchies are known for their big bat ears and smooshy, cuddly bodies. Another interesting fact, this particular type of bulldog rarely barks, making them very quiet and agreeable companions.

If someone is told, "you have the tenacity of a bulldog," it's because of this breed (think tough, tenacious, and doggone determined), though they tend to have silly personalities when socialized.
