    I got my english bulldog when he was 6 weeks old and immediately noticed a bit of aggressive issues with him. He was very fond of nipping which I only rationalized as his teething stage at that time but what alarmed me was that he would growl at everyone who would try to pet him or raise the finger at him. He's now 14weeks old already and has improved remarkably well but still has a bit of aggressive issues, especially when you try to get his toys or food. He starts with a growl and will nip if you dont correct him immediately. We're all trying our best to correct him by making him realize that he is to accept us as his alpha yet my question is: are english bulldogs really like this? Do they really have this temperament? When I got him from my breeder, he assured us that bulldogs were very gentle and child friendly. Is it just my bulldog thats naughty or should I be expecting him to be like this naturally? Thanks in advance for any indisght :)
