B. English bulldogs were originally bred for the brutal sport of bull-baiting, but they are now cherished-----in the non underlined part we have its--so pronoun number error

D. the English bulldog was originally bred for the brutal sport of bull-baiting, but it is now cherished---correct
E. the English bulldog, originally bred to bait bulls for a brutal sport, is now being cherished---sounds awkward ...
