He gets bacterial and fungal infections in his skin because his folds and wrinkles trap dirt in moisture. This can cause sensitive and hurty skin and loss of hair.
Because of his squished up face and deformed palette in his throat, each breath is labored and is not exactly the proper way to breathe. This makes it dangerous to even EAT!
His body structure causes pain and problems such as hip dysplasia.

Plus, because of the way his eyes are set, they dry up and get itchy. They can also develop Cherry Eye. There has been a case when his eyes have actually popped out of his head because of tight squeezing on the neck. There have been cases when people have abandoned their pups because of the expensive care. And since they have been abandoned, they end up dieing very quickly.
A bulldog"s folds need to be cleaned every day to avoid infections. If your pup gets an infection, the treatment may end up costly. If it gets too severe, he will lose hair.
Since they are prone to allergies, many pups need special food. That can and will end up very costly, and if you are not careful, you may end up hurting or eventually killing him.
And, in addition to the expense you already pay, they need a couch. Yes. A couch. Don"t forget to add that on to your needs and wish list.
Plus, they need to be kept in very strict temperatures. Since they cannot pant like other dogs and excessive folds of skin, they easily overheat. They do not take very well to the cold either. Mother bulldogs cannot give birth without c-sections. This can be a very dangerous process. In some cases, surgeons end up killing the mother and the puppies!
Plus, females cannot become pregnant without help. Without the right equipment, the whole breed would die out!
Even more, in puppy mills, they don"t care about the conditions of the parents. They breed the parents again and again until they cannot reproduce anymore or die. Then they discard the parents. This can result in many birth defects, and is plain cruelty to the parents too!

the only reason you would get infected is if you got bit . how do you get bit by bieng stupid and making silly disisions around dogs well if a dog is agressive then stay away from it and make a dog trainer proposal .some dogs come from bad pasts you shouldnt be mad what if you were the dog then how would you feel if someone set fancy standards on you if you were only scared of people becouse of your past how would you feel

I'm talking about the dog silly. plus, they die because of abandonment and many sicknesses stuck in their genes. it's not their fault they're sick. this time read my whole entry. I'll give it to you again. He gets bacterial and fungal infections in his skin because his folds and wrinkles trap dirt in moisture. This can cause sensitive and hurty skin and loss of hair.

if you are around dogs you must know a little about dogs . I think that it is stupid to be around a dog then just suddenly get bit if a dog is aggressive then you probably would see the signs.

1.growling
2.barking
3.attack stance
4.thrust forward

Well, the dog is the one with the infection. He gets all of these from genetics. And yes, I own one dog, so your argument right there is practically useless.
These are problems of the dog, not human.
1. Joint pain
2. fold dermatitis
3. He cannot breathe right
4.His eyes cause eye problems (cataracts cherry eye etc.)
5. Even short life
