* 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.

* 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 was intentional as all of the viciousness that made it such a good work dog was bred out as well as shortening the muzzle so that it won't be able to bite (which lead the breed to have both breathing and birthing problems).

* Defied in one episode of ''The Busy World Of RichardScarry'': when a bulldog kid named Billy Dog joins the class, everyone think he's going to be TheBully, and avoid him. At the end of the episode they realize that he's a [[FaceOfAThug pretty nice guy who just looks scary]].

This trope is prevalent in (but not exclusive to) old cartoons from the [[UsefulNotes/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]].

* In the fourth episode of ''Manga/SallyTheWitch'' Cub transforms himself into an angry looking Bulldog... with a cat's body. This causes the triplets to tease him and beat him up, until he turns into a full English Bulldog. They end up confusing him until he runs away.

However, when he's not performing onstage, he's working as Bletch the Walrus's bodyguard and thug enforcer. He is also shown to be quite skilled in melee combat, as seen during the MobWar near the film's end.

* Mr. Beefy from ''Film/LittleNicky''.
* Subverted in the Halloween sequence in the movie ''Film/MeetMeInStLouis''. When Tootie has to "Kill the Braukoffs," another child protests, "The Braukoffs have a fierce bulldog! She'll be torn to pieces!" After Tootie throws flour into Mr. Braukoff's face to "kill" him, the bulldog is seen quietly and unconcernedly snuffling up the flour rather than noticing Tootie at all.
* Averted with Chance from ''Film/HomewardBoundTheIncredibleJourney''. He is an American Bulldog but is the most energetic, friendly, and kiddie of the main characters.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', Harry's mean aunt, Marge, breeds bulldogs. She brings one of them named Ripper, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast which has some nasty implications]], when she visits the Dursleys, who used to chase Harry around when he was ten.

In that case of course, its more the owner who is the bully and the dog is a product of its upbringing.
