    Two of the answers apply to Gracie. We found her in an online Classified ad. She was listed as a retired breeder.
    We were exploring the options of purchase vs adoption. We called the breeder in Missouri and after getting additional pictures decided she was exactly what we wanted.
    Only a few months ago, but we've learned a lot more here than we ever knew before about puppy mills/pet shops/backyard breeders etc.
    Would we get another dog from the same place? In a heartbeat...if we were in the market for another and could afford another..but we aren't and can't. Gracie is going to be an only princess for now.

    Well I placed an ad for a horse for sale. I had a lady answer it come see the horse and email me back and forth for a few weeks. She finally said I cant pay for the horse right now, she said I do breed dogs, (at this time I had 8 dogs) I laughed it off, told the hubby and he said no way.. Well I was nosiy and asked her what she breeds, She said Yorkies and English Bulldogs.. I freaked lol always having been around my uncles EB's I always wanted one. Hubby always said no im not spending the money (but he bought me a 13,000.00 horse?) ok lol... So I asked for pictures of the parents etc. After talking with her that she really wanted my horse ( and I a pup) She came back out to my house and we talked more. We decided to do a trade. Well this was in July 08... I let her take the horse home and we did a contract. We brought Chief home in Feb 09. I think that I got the better end of the deal. They are a great military family that came to Ca from Az...

    Ireland, Well I was not really looking for a pup at that time, but then I saw her picture, ( I just sold another horse)(last one) So I called the breeder, she gave me her website etc, we talked and then the kids and I went to see her (stopped at the bank first just incase ) Well when we got there It was love at first site.. I had already loved her from the pictures. This breed has been into bulldogs since 1972. Has lots of show dogs etc. When I saw the parents that sealed the deal...

    I have seen loads of EB's at pet stores and have wanted to purchase them just because I knew their fate..

    @desertskybulldogs.... I think that I talked with the same lady in Vegas, they had 2 bulldogs. I almost talked myself into going and seeing them. But something told me no....

    "H" was a rescue from Buddies Thru Bullies. I got it in my head that I wanted an EB about 7 months prior to getting Handsome, but I couldn't afford to get a registered puppy, nor really wanted the trouble of potty training and 24/7 attention. Little did I know that "H" would require that and more.

    But my son and I fell in love with him when we visited him at his foster home, and we couldn't resist. The rest is history.
