    Default personality trait?

    Hi everyone. when I picked up Buddy my male bulldog at the airport almost 3 years ago I couldn't believe how bold and fearless this little guy was ! He walked around my place like he owned the place and had lived here for years. Very cute. now I swear he is a scary cat. Anything that he is unfamiliar with scares him. Balloons. when I take out the trash. The other day I had hung a new painting in the living room and he knew instinctively that is was not supposed to be there and started barking. Is anyone else's bulldogs like this? Is this a common trait? I don't want him to be a coward and hope that it isn't anything I have instilled in him somehow to make him like this. He is like day and night compared to the first day I brought him home !

    It isn't you, that's just how they are. Everything has to be in it's proper place. LOL! Buster will kill any balloon and trash bags are the devil to him. There's ways that you can make them less scared but it really is the way they are. It's their world we're just living in it.

    Not you at all!!! Bulldogs tend to be very very OCD about their surroundings. Bocephus barked for an hour at a sweater I hung on the back of a barstool this weekend. They are just funny babies

    My husband hung his suit coat on the front of the closet last Saturday and Winnie freaked out--continually barking and wouldn't go near it. Some things she is still fearless about. They are just like that!

    Canelo and my two pugs Chug and Lola don't like things out of place and get upset. I don't acknowledge it most times, keep acting like normal and they don't react as much for very long.

    Very bulldog, he may grow out of it or not. Some have success in being very calm
    & downplay emotion and some bullies learn to be calmer but others not. Just love
    him however he is, it's not about being a coward tho, these dogs were bred to bring
    down bulls & die before giving up! They just don't like change & certain things, lol

    RIP beloved boy.

    Our old bullmastiff once walked out on the deck, saw the table umbrella that had been there all summer and freaked out, refusing to go out again. You just never know!
