    Bulldogs are becoming very popular in advertisements/commercials.... kind of scares me. those not doing their research will start buying them and then .... ugh.

    Have you seen the new VW Jetta commercial advertising keyless entry? It insinuates that the bulldog has eaten the keys and the owner waves the dog in front of the door to demonstrate how keyless entry works. Totally funny to watch and yet horrifying at the same time as I wonder how life threatening that could be in reality. The commercial does end with the owner at the vets.

    I so agree with you and yes I love all the commercials especially the new Jetta one, but your worry is mine also.. Did you know that the no.1 most popular breed in CA is the EBN?? So many celebrities have them. When people say to me " Oh I want a EB like yours" I feel compelled to spell out the wonderful ups and the not so wonderful downs of the breed. I know there are fantastic breeders out there ( and on this site) but I worry so much about the EB's that are being breed by those not so fantastic breeders. I thought I did all of my research and still...... I love my Dublin and am truly lucky to have her but Oh! what a road it has been. I come from a family of breeders ( Boxers) and they are amazing and follow all guidelines but the stories they could tell..... I plan to adopt one of the ever growing number of abandoned EB's.... Please consider doing the same..

    I'll try to make this short in reference to people buying EB's b/c their cute and popular...

    My friend had a pit mix who was hyper and she (& her bf) took no steps to train or exercise her. So they were looking for a new apartment, in a town they just HAD to live in b/c of the school system (they have 2 children), found one, wouldn't allow pitbulls, (why they didn't keep searching for an apartment that did) they got rid of her (shelter or adoption place of some sort), the guy for the apartment 'backed out' and they didn't get the apartment (even though they put a deposit on it don't know how this happens or can happen), they eventually find another apartment back in the city they came from that did allow dogs and got another dog (pit/lab mix)..there really is a point So her bf says to me after seeing pictures of Lilly & Bruin 'I want an EB, that's my next dog' So at this point I'm irritated b/c I'm thinking 'you didn't train or exercise your other dog, which was why she was so hyper and you just got rid of her at the drop of a hat to live somewhere that you didn't even end up living!! Then you go get another dog like its nothing! And you want an EB that requires way more attention than you can obviously give'. So all I said was "yea they're cute, but really costly and very high maintenance" Then prayed my butt off that they don't get one. Let me just note that I haven't seen that friend or her bf since. I lost a lot of respect for them when they got rid of their first dog and got another one, all within a few months.

    You are soooooooooooo much nicer than I would have been -- friend or not, knowing all you do/did I would have flat out said you can not handle the responsibilities of owning an EB -- EB's are not pets they are family members

    Those kind of people should not "own" ANY dog. Especially a bully who is not just any dog....
