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.

* 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.
