Spanish Bulldogs are a large breed of dog whose origins can be traced all the back to the 5th century; a group of nomadic Iranian people known as the Alani had recently traveled to Spain for the first time, bringing a distinct breed of large dogs along for the trip in order to protect their livestock and themselves. These particular dogs would go on to sire another breed of canines who would eventually become known to the world as Alaunt dogs. It's from this now extinct Alaunt breed of dogs that Spanish Bulldogs, also known as Alano Español in their native homeland of Spain, descend from. Spanish Bulldogs possess a number of the same physical and mental traits that made their ancestors famous back in the day, allowing them to excel at a wide variety of physical activities.
Spanish Bulldogs can become great companions for the right kind of person; so long as you can treat these dogs with respect while also being able to put your foot down in order to let them know who's the leader of the pack, they'll respect your resolve and will fall in line. You'll also need to be able to present your Spanish Bulldog with a number of physically strenuous activities to keep them from getting too restless and out of shape. If you can do those things on a regular basis, then the Spanish Bulldog will reward your efforts with loyalty and respect in kind.
