The Bulldog most probably sprang up centuries ago in the British Isles, and was employed for bull-baiting until 1835, when the cruel sport was abolished by law. Its low-slung body protected him from the thrusts of the bull, even as his short nose and long, heavy underjaw made possible the celebrated lock grip. It is a smooth-coated, massively built dog having a thick-set, low-slung body. Its head is quite large and broad, Its face exceedingly short with thick, pendant chops, or lips that totally overhang the lower jaw at both sides. His tail could be either straight or chicaned. It moves in a rather loose-jointed, shuffling, sideways motion, granting the characteristic "roll."
