Bulldogs originated in 13th-century England. They were used for bullbaiting, a blood sport in which a pack of dogs fights a staked bull. Bulldogs were utilised for illegal dog fighting after the 1800s ban.
The Yorkshire terrier originated in 1800s Yorkshire and Lancashire. It's a blend of Skye and Dandie Dinmont terriers.
English hunters in the 1500s had both enormous and little hounds. Small hounds became beagles. In the 1800s, little hounds were bred for their hunting power and amiable appearance.
Larger springers were employed to flush birds and other game for hunters. By 1902, the English springer spaniel was legally recognised in England.
English nobles' country estates were the target of poachers in the 1800s. The solution to this problem was to create a large, athletic, and brave dog that could track down and subdue any intruding poachers.
These small dogs were originally bred in litters with larger springer spaniels, which is how the breed got its name. Woodcock is the primary target of this species, which is why it has that name.
Coal workers in England were interested in hunting and dog racing in the 1800s. However, huge canines like the greyhound were out of reach due to their high costs.
From these crosses came the bull terrier, utilised in illicit dog fighting. Breeders softened its features and disposition to make it a popular pet.
Airedales originated in Northern England's Aire Valley. In the 1800s, mill workers bred huge terriers to be sharp, hardy, and brave hunters.
