Catherine Tate investigates the state of one of the most iconic and loved breeds of dog – the British bulldog.
While its popularity rockets, its health is suffering, prompting Catherine to ask: ‘Are we loving this dog to extinction?’

A comprehensive look at a complicated problem that needs an urgent solution if we are to continue calling ourselves a nation of dog lovers.
