Descriptions of the English Bulldog breed say that they only bark for a good reason, would you say thats true for your bully? When Samson and my beagle play he will occassionally playfully bark back at her. Other than that he only barks when someone knocks at the door or he hears something odd in the backyard. At that time he uses his tough guy bark, it's very deep and he stands really straight up and stiff. It's very cute!
