The Victorian Bulldog is large-headed and thick-boned, only to the point that it does not impede vigor. It is broad muzzled and short-faced, but not so excessive as to interfere with breathing. The hindquarters are somewhat higher and not as heavy as foreparts, but not so as to destroy the symmetry of a muscular athlete. The head should be large but not exaggerated out of proportion to the body. The cheeks are rounded and extended sideways beyond the eyes.
The face is measured from the front of the cheekbone to the tip of the nose, long enough for unhindered breathing. The muzzle is broad and turning up, undershot but not to excess. The nostrils are large and wide, black is preferred but dudley acceptable. The flews are broad and hanging over the lower jaw at the sides. The canine teeth are large and wide apart. The eyes from the front are set low and wide apart, never bulging or sunken and never with the haw be visible.
The ears are either rose or button and are never erect or cropped. The neck is thick, strong, and arched, with loose skin forming dewlap on each side. The shoulders are broad and deep. The Victorian Bulldog has rounded ribs with a wide chest narrowing towards the loins without exaggeration. The forelegs are muscular, straight, and wide apart, not bandy or curved. The hind legs are strong and muscular. The hocks are slightly bent. The feet are round and compact and either straight, turning down, or screwed. The coat is smooth and short. Colors include all brindles, solid white or pied, solid red, fawn, or fallow. Black or black and tan are not acceptable.
