Our community is a peaceful community for families & lovers of English Bulldogs.
Although the administrators and moderators of the English Bulldog News Community will attempt to keep all objectionable messages and posts off this forum, it is impossible for us to review every message, topic and post. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners nor the staff at EBN will be held responsible for the content of any messages, topics or posts. If you see a post, topic, blog or any content you find to be questionable, please report it to EBN staff by hitting the report button that is located on each post.
#1. Don't "Bully" Other Members. We are here to help each other.
#2. Do not become confrontational or the topic will be closed
#3. Do not advertise puppies or dogs for sale or post words of intent to sell. No breeder links OR breeder names are allowed on the sites, as we do not openly recommend any breeders. We cannot do this unless we were to periodically investigate breeders for quality and living conditions, because not all breeders are what they claim to be on the internet.
#4. Do not post stud services or intent to offer stud services
#5. Do not join just to promote a voting contest you are entered in. Contest promotions on members with under 50 forum posts will be removed.
#6. No racism, foul language or blood/gore
#7. No pornography or sexual content of any kind
#8. Do not post unsponsored links to other websites.
#9. Photographs cannot be watermarked with Breeder Name or Kennel Name. (Photographer watermarks are allowed)
#10. Public postings of fundraisers other than for 501c3 dog rescue organizations are NOT allowed. Any posts asking the members of EBN for funding will be removed. Fundraisers for rescue English Bulldogs are welcome so rescues and volunteers, please continue to share any fundraisers for your rescue.
If you are not sure if your post would be deemed appropriate, please contact one of our staff members to find out if it is allowed. Usually though, if you are questioning it, then you probably should not post it.
Many of our members offer advice on health issues. You should always seek the advice of your veterinarian with any information you find here, and EBN cannot be held accountable for any misinformation or bad advice given as each bulldog owner has different experiences.
