This life-size bronze English Bulldog statue bust was originally sculpted in the mid 90’s and produced in resin. In 2005 it was then reworked and produced in bronze.
The study for the Bronze English Bulldog Sculpture was our pet, “Tank”. Later I had AKC “American Kennel Club” Judges and breeders critique the sculpture in order to perfect the confirmation before I delivered it to the foundry.
Per the AKC standards, this breed is recognized for their loose-jointed, scuffling walk and huge, short-faced skull, the English Bulldog is known to be composed, stubborn and distinguished. These are not considered lap dog, but would like to be! They are one of the most well-liked breeds according to AKC due to their adorable and calm nature and loveable wrinkles. The Bulldog coats vary from brindle, white, red, fawn, fallow or piebald. The red brindle and reds being the most popular colors.
This breed is a very popular mascot for many organizations, such as schools United States Marine Corps and sport teams.
The Bronze English Bulldog Sculpture sits on a marble and solid walnut base. The total weight is about 50 to 60 pounds.
Our family has owned English Bulldogs since 1983 and breed them up until 2006.
This breed is one of a few that were breed for the so-called sport, “bullbaiting”. A bloody and inhuman event in my opinion.
