Australian Bulldog Temperament
The Australian Bulldog, or Aussie Bulldog as its commonly referred to, is a medium sized dog that loves being part of a family. They are a loving and loyal breed with a sound temperament. Good with children and fun-loving, this breed is pretty easy going.
If they have been properly socialised as a puppy, they generally get along well with other dogs. It is important that the owner is aware of the type of care that is required for Aussie Bulldogs to minimalise health issues, and prepared for the snorting, drooling and flatulence that is generally associated with this breed.
Australian Bulldog Health Issues
Hip Dysplasia: A common disease where a malformation in the hip joint results in the joint rubbing and grinding. This can lead to irritation, pain and impaired walking ability.
Dry/Itchy Skin: Some dogs, especially those with a shorter coat, can be prone to dry, flaky and itchy skin. This can be helped by using an oatmeal based shampoo and conditioner. If this continues to occur it could be related to a food allergy or parasite, and should be seen by a vet.
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome: A medical term that relates to multiple upper airway problems experienced in short-nosed, flat-faced breeds. These issues are due to the physical characteristics of these breeds, such as narrowed nostrils, an abnormally small windpipe or an overly long, soft palate.
