* In the novel ''Literature/WhiteFang'', the wolf fights a bulldog in a dogfight.
** Cherokee the bulldog subverts this trope because he is [[http://london.sonoma.edu/Writings/WhiteFang/4chapter4.html described as neither vicious or bullying]]: "Cherokee did not seem anxious to fight. He turned his head and blinked at the men who shouted, at the same time wagging his stump of a tail good-naturedly. He was not afraid, but merely lazy."
*** He's more an instance of KillerRabbit with a side ImplacableMan, calmly wearing White Fang down to the strangling point.

This is a DeadHorseTrope now. Bulldogs ''were'' vicious many years ago when they were still bred to fight bulls for sport, hence the name. When this sport was outlawed, bulldogs had their viciousness bred out of them so they could be kept as pets. It's reflected in fiction, too: Modern "mean dogs" are almost always Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, Doberman Pinschers, and German shepherds.

* DonaldDuck comics have this in almost every issue. Normally it's someone climbing a fence just to notice he's landed on the bulldog territory. This is a stock scene, and is sometimes parodied. It might not be a bulldog, but an equally vicious poodle for instance, or even if the dog is just a sleeping puppy, the character is terrified.

* Believe it or not, bulldogs are cited as being very friendly dogs, especially for families with children. They'd actually prefer to sleep on someone's lap and wouldn't leave their yard without a human companion.

This trope is prevalent in (but not exclusive to) old cartoons from the [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1940s]] as both WarnerBros and {{MGM}} had a surfeit of bulldog characters. Generally they were [[AngryGuardDog vicious guard dogs]] or [[TheBully bullies]], esp. toward [[PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize cats and littler dogs]].
