The Dorset Olde Tyme Bulldogge is a medium-sized dog that embodies strength, confidence and pride. Standing tall and proud, it weighs 59 to 90 pounds and stands 48 to 61 centimetres. Its body is compact and well-muscled, having the traditional bulldog look. It has a large head with a slightly convex top, prominent cheeks, strong muzzles, rose-shaped ears that are set high, and a broad nose with opened nostrils.
The Dorset’s coat is short and close lying, often compared to that of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier’s. It comes in the following colours: white, black, brindle, slate grey/blue or a combination of these colours. This breed has low grooming needs and would benefit from a weekly wipe and brush to keep it in top shape. Make sure its wrinkles are cleaned regularly to avoid sores that can lead to infections.
Since its coat is easy to maintain, owners have a lot of time care for the other parts of its body that need attention. This specifically includes its teeth and gums. Brush its teeth twice a week to avoid dental problems. Also clean its ears, trim its nails and ensure its skin does not have any bumps. You also need to watch out for fleas and ticks especially if your dog interacts with other pets outside.
