The sex of the puppy is often a matter of personal preference. Many people choose a bitch because they fancy the idea of breeding a litter of their own. One should therefore know that this breed is not an easy breed to a start as a breeder.
As Christian Bruton points out the Bulldog is one of the few breeds in which often the males are more affectionate than the bitches. Also, bitches are usually not just loyal to their owner in particular, but to the house and the family as a whole and will therefore often be a better guardian of the premises. A dog instead, is especially loyal to one person in particular. A further difference between bitches and dogs is, according to Dickerson, that dogs learn more slowly but retain the lesson longer.
