French bulldog for vicious and fearless nature

The Bulldog was so-named because this type of dog was ideal for the English sport
of bull-baiting, which involved tethering a bull to a stake in the ground and
encouraging dogs to try to bite the bull's nose. Bulldogs were well-suited for this
sport because of their vicious and fearless nature. A breed of compact muscular
short-haired dogs having widely separated forelegs and an undershot lower jaw
that were developed in England to fight bulls. Bulldog is called somebody tough,
tenacious, and gets things done, especially in the face of adversity.
