    I got Bella from a breeder that lives about 3 hours from me. I consider that local.

    We got Agatha Gump from a breeder outside of Athens, GA. Although it was only 4 hours away, we took our vet (orthopaedic specialist) to give the okay. Best (sober) 8 hour road trip in the history of the universe.

    LOL! That might be my own weirdness. But, considering I live in the DC Metro area and I can spend over an hour going anywhere in DC, MD, or VA, I kind of loosely call the breeder local. The breeder isn't DC Metro, but he is in Virginia and my Bella didn't have to be shipped! LOL

    I know this is awful and I hope y'all don't hate me, but I found Winnie on Craig's List. This was a guy (local) who had a female bully that he bred to his friend's male bully and she had a litter of pups. I know I broke the rule of no backyard breeders. I did see mama, who was very friendly and still letting the pups nurse at almost 8 weeks old! I asked about health issues, skin problems, and cherry eye. The guy assured me that neither mom or dad had any of these issues and I took his word for it.

    It was funny, when I first called the guy, he wanted to meet me somewhere. I said if I couldn't come see the puppies and their mom at his house, I didn't want the puppy. He said his parents were afraid to have someone to come to their house from Craig's List! We ended up going to his house.

    This kind of brings up an issue about bulldog puppies though. Most people know they should look for a reputable breeder for a puppy. We don't want to encourage back yard breeding and certainly don't want to support pet stores, who are notorious for getting their puppies from puppy mills. And those online sites where you pay the money and they ship you a puppy are terrible! When I started researching breeders, some of whom I knew, none of them had any puppies available at the time. I think the demand for bullies is way higher than there are litters available from reputable breeders and I think that's one reason people end up buying from questionable breeders, or importers, or puppy mills, or whatever they find online. A lot of those online puppies are very expensive and likely to have more than their fair share of health issues, but people still pay the big bucks for them. It's too bad.

    Anyway, I don't know why I got on such a rant on a simple poll question! I guess justifying why I got Winnie the way I did. Sweet Winnie will never be a show dog--we didn't want one. So far she doesn't have any health issues, but that's always kind of a crap shoot with Bulldogs. And she did need a home....

    I got becky in the buy and sell she was bought over from Hungry. Funny thing I know a fella who owns her sister. She is from the Rizi bizi golden bulls kennels Hungary i nearly lost her last year just before xmas due to her eating a wasp and being stung internally had to get an emergency tracheostomy done as the swelling from the sting closed off her airway all very touch and go but thankfully she is alright now she was 3 December. MJ was got from england from infallibull kennels in England she's a great little dog energy for days loves flying about the place. If I won the lottery id have an army of them

    Ruby is a breeder cast-off. We contacted a local breeder when we began our search. The breeder said she had an old puppy(5months) she had intended to keep for color, but it was obvious at 5 months that Ruby's proportions were off(her torso is long). A think of her more as a rescue...than as a choice from a breeder.
