The English or British Bulldog is an old dog breed that developed in Britain in the 16th century.
The breed was originally used for the popular ‘sport’ of bull-baiting, where several Bulldogs were set on a Bull in a market place (or arena) to bring him down mostly by biting and holding onto its nose. This explains the typical physiognomy of the breed such as thick folds of skin on a Bulldog's brows and folds called "rope" above the nose (so that the blood would not flow in the eyes and nose), hanging skin (so that if the horns of the Bull would penetrate the skin it would not damage the vital organs) and a retracted nose from the underbite (so that the dog could still breathe while hanging on the nose of the bull). The above combined with strong, stocky bodies, massive heads, strong jaws and superior tenacity typified the once ferocious breed.
The Cruelty to Animals Act 1835 prohibited this ‘sport’ and the breed became almost extinct.
In 1878 the Bulldog Club was founded, the oldest single breed specialty club in England. It promoted a breed that underwent a dramatic change from the formerly savage warrior dog to a very docile, friendly and gentle, yet still courageous animal perfectly suited as a family pet and show dog, which is what very much defines the British Bulldog of today.

The English Bulldog is one of the four national animals that represent England or the United Kingdom (as are the lion, the Unicorn, and the red fox). The breed has been associated with Winston Churchill (although he never owned one) and stands for the British Bulldog Spirit and was extensively used and featured in the propaganda during the two World Wars. The British or English Bulldog is also the official mascot of the United States Marine Corps and numerous U.S. universities (such as Georgia or Yale).

Fab Diamond, has been the official mascot of the White Spot division since 2010. She fronts our website, our consumer brochure and is used in White Spot PR visuals world-wide.

The British Bulldog pipes have been specifically created and manufactured to honour the British Bulldog, the national animal of Great Britain and in memory of Fab Diamond, the official Mascot of the White Spot division.

This Bulldog pipe - a classic Billiard shape in Group 4 (4103) - is fitted with a precious metal windshield in form of a remarkably realistic sculptured Bulldog head and an engraved precious metal band.

Further, each pipe is accompanied by a matching Bulldog “puppy” pipe tamper made from Briar & precious metal.

The highly collectable Bulldog pipes & tampers are presented in a prestigious leather bound book and come with a numbered and hand-signed limited edition certificate.
