Best English Bulldog

The first attempt to describe a bulldog standard dates back to 1864 and was intiated by the Birmingham fancier Jacob Lamphier.  In 1865 the members of the original Bulldog Club (G.B.) compiled an authoritative description of the breed known as the "Philo-Kuon Standard." It was intended to be an accurate - actually somewhat idealized - description of the bulldog that, due to its peculair bony and muscular structure was perfectly adapted for combat with the bull.  

Ten years later the Bulldog Club (by then incorporated) issued an improved Standard, that aimed at 'tidying up' the Bulldog, so as to render him a more presentable dog for the shows, while at the same time carefully preserving all the really essential features of the old English Bulldog.  There have been minor revisions from time to time, which have resulted in only negligible departures from the original, with the sole exception that in Great Britain the premissible weight has been raised ten pounds.  In 1986 the Kennel Club revised the Standard, with the aim to explain things in plainer English.

Nowadays, the majority of the countries have developed their own Breed Standard, based on the one originally drawn up by the mother club - The Bulldog Incorporated - and published on 27 May 1875.  The bulldog breed standard is now used to outline the bulldog's morphology, character, and temperament.
