The Herding Bulldog

A Bulldog with the soul of an English Shepherd

When one invokes “the herding breeds” the mental image that comes to mind is usually the medium to medium-large shaggy collie types and their short-haired cousins the cattle and heeler dogs.  Perhaps a thought to the sheltie and corgi types for specialized work.  There are so many herding breeds that fall in the BC/Aussie/English Shepherd family plus the type that clusters around the Belgian breeds and the GSD, and you might even think to the livestock guardian dogs.  But I doubt your mind pulls up a super short haired dog that’s blocky, muscled, and firmly associated with the terrier family.

But apparently there’s a bulldog with the soul of an English Shepherd. Fascinating.
