I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about these wrinkly puppies that are able to make even the toughest human heart melt! Haven’t you ever noticed that English Bulldogs, also known as British Bulldogs, are often used on greeting cards and advertisements?

Often used in commercials, these puppies are relatively easy to train, are obedient, and remarkably irresistible.

Corgi’s as adults are dogs that have been used to herd animals such as sheep, but long before their days as herders, Corgi puppies were born with a natural instinct to be involved with a family. They are very affectionate and will tail your every move as much as they can. Because they have a natural tendency to want to please their owners, they are easy to train and hungry to learn. Having short little legs and ears larger than their bodies don’t hurt in making a human fall in love with them.
