French Bull Dane History

The French Bull (or French Bulldog) is a medium-sized, short-coated breed of domestic dog, and is the largest of the Bulldog-type dogs. It is descended from a cross between the English bulldog and various older, now-extinct bull-baiting breeds, mainly the now-extinct White Parisian, and hails from Paris, France. # What is the history of the Boxer dog breed? The boxer is a deep chested, medium-sized, square-proportioned breed of domesticated dog that originated in 19th-century Germany. The origin of the word “boxer” is disputed, but it is thought to be derived from the Old English term “bæc” meaning “farmer”, “peasant” or “peacock”. The modern boxer descends from the now-extinct Bullen- and Bulldog-type mastiff breeds, and was selectively bred for sport, companionship, and protection. The heavy-boned and muscular Boxer was originally developed in Germany as a fighting and guard dog.
