The English Bulldog’s past can shed some light on why the breed desires more sleep than most of its other companions. Bred more than 500 years ago by crossing the feisty pug with the dominant bull, the English Bulldog was quickly discovered to be more of a gentle soul than a fighter—mainly because the bulldog’s body is not meant for high energy activities. In fact, because of its larger size and shorter snout, it is the only dog breed to be diagnosed with sleep apnea.
