The Olde English Bulldogge is a sweet dog but can also be protective over their family and property. Great with children and family members, this breed loves to please and to be with their family at all times. However, with strangers this breed varies: some of them love strangers, some ignore them, and others may be aggressive towards them. This range of possibilities makes it essential to socialize them thoroughly at a young age.
