    @DiXie - for the purpose of finding a new residence, I'd avoid mentioning breed at all if it's a problem where you live. Sadly, there are places where breed discrimination runs rampant because of the stupidity of a few. Anyone who knows English Bulldogs at all would realize they're not motivated enough to attack anything - outside of an unattended cheeseburger. Can't you just say you have a "Mixed Breed" dog and leave it at that?

    try pug mix? In essence you aren't lying because the old english bulldog was crossed with a pug long ago to help achieve the bulldogs we all love today

    years ago when we needed to rent, we had a Springer Spaniel and there was a weight limit. When we asked if there was any budge, they just asked to see and meet Gordon, I mean he was almost double the limit. But he was so gentle and friendly they let it slide.
    Even to day when I talk to people about our dogs, I have to back English Bulldog by saying.... you know an UGA dog. Check the breed limitations, most will say shepards and pits, that can be your arguement.

    Always with me

    I think people must be mistaking English Bulldog for some other breed. They obviously don't realize it's the cute, sweet, wrinkly UGA dog. I'd make sure to open with that. You'd be surprised how many people have no clue about dog breeds & just generalize all of them.
    But on a side note, I'd also be SURE to keep the dogs in your yard (fenced?) or on leash when outside. Sorry, I had to say it. Did your dog actually bite her? And the Border Collie bite the man? I would have insisted on seeing any alleged damage they claim to have had. I hope everything works out for the best!

    Good luck with your house hunting, and I would not tell them the breed unless they asked, and if they did then I would tell them an English Bulldog who is the sweetest thing you have ever met. If they say no or hang up call back ask them if they have ever met an English Bulldog, and not to confuse them with Pit bulls, and offer for them to meet her. Maybe it will help.

    Yeah before telling them your dogs breed I would ask to see their pet policy. Mine explicitly listed breeds that were not allowed (german shepards, rottweilers, dobermans, pit bulls, american bulldogs, chow chows, that's all I can remember but I feel like I'm missing some). Also its stated dogs had to be under 50 lbs. They were really strict about it when we were moving in and we needed to provide pictures of Brooke so they could verify her breed. But since then I've seen these rules go unenforced a lot. The bulldogs a few doors down weigh over 60 lbs and there is a white german shepard owned by someone in our complex that has to be well over 70 lbs. I've also seen some pit mixes around as well. I don't mind any breed so it doesn't bother me.

    Bwhahahahahaaaa! Yes! One of THOSE! What is that anyway, Mrs. Landlord. Do you think it's maybe a SharPei? hahahahahahaha

    It's unfortunate that the FEW have ruined it for the many when it comes to breed discrimination. It's always 20% of the people that cause 80% of the problems.

    Take my complex's little doggie area: it's a wonderful off leash place, about as big as a 1/4 of a football field, grassy, part sun / part shade. A dream really when it comes to doggie parks. There's even a little bench in there now. EVERYTIME I GO, I HAVE TO POOPERSCOOP OTHER PEOPLE'S DOG'S CRAP! I even installed a potty bag dispenser of sorts (doggie bag roll on a zip tie) and there's STILL POO ON THE GROUND. It's infuriating.

    But I have a plan.

    At the next board meeting, I'm going to offer to host a doggie area webcam - so we can definitively identify the errant crapper picker upper. AND I will offer to deliver the bagged poo to the doorstep of the individual who left it behind. How do you think that will go over?

    I have a friend who does not pick up her dog's poo. She's trained him - a ChowChow - to crap in ivy or tall grass as she believes this exhonorates her from having to find it and pick it up. I think it's so lazy and so rude and sooooo greater-than-thou. Grrrrrr. And when we're out together, she always feels she has to explain this too. "You know, I'd pick that up if I could FIND it....". Yeah. Riiighhhhttttt. I wish someone would write her a big ticket.

    @Vicaroo1000 That's why you should live in the boonies. haha At my townhouse complex I do have to pick it up, but at my parents house or my boyfriends parents house she can poop where ever she pleases and I don't have to worry about bringing bags. haha There is one negative though, the other night I was out with Brooke at my boyfriends parents house and had to scoop her up and run inside because we could hear coyotes howling in the woods nearby...

    @Sarah: yikes! I don't think taking down a bulldog for a meal would be anything less than a nightmare for the offending coyote. For Bo, it would probably be something like having his nails done and that takes 2 - and sometimes 3 - techs to make that happen.

    I think if I lived in the boonies, I'd still pooper scoop. If you've ever walked into the house with someone ELSES dogshit on your shoe, you'd have one giant magical reason why you'd do that. hahahahahahaha

    @Vicaroo1000 Brooke is a sissy and would run and hide behind me if we saw a coyote lol. But a basset hound did go missing recently. And it is sooo much the boonies that you have a better chance of stepping in deer poop than another persons dog poop. haha
