    How many of you out there have older Bulldogs I"m just curious. It would be nice to talk with ppl who have older babies and share stories and how their doing in their senior years.

    Well not me personally, but you know how bulldog people just seem to find each other? Well I was walking Poppy and this lady ran out of her house to talk to me. Turns out she has 3 bullies, momma was 19, her son was 15ish, and the 3rd (unrelated) bully was 7 or so. The momma has since passed but I was just so amazed. They all seemed very mobile, even the 19 year old. She was going bizerk barking at me through the window (well they all were). I have also met a lot of 10-13 year old bulldogs, they seem to have a smaller body size in common. Maybe 30-40lbs.

    19?! Wow...I seriously have never met a bulldog older than 10. I love older bulldogs though. Bre is 7 and prior to her I had a senior guy (estimated age was 9ish) who was in terrible shape when he made his way to our family. After a couple years we had him put to sleep because life just got to hard and painful for him but he was such a sweetheart. He got me hooked on bulldogs

    Hearing about these older Bullies makes me feel a little better knowing it"s possible to have them longer than 9 or 10 I wish I could keep him forever.

    I think older bullies are even better than pups. Don't get me wrong, everybody loves a puppy but...older bulldogs are such sweet souls. Bre sleeps a lot but she is super attatched to the family. She follows me from room to room and lies down wherever I end up. Tank is 2 and he is crazy...he is all over the place all the time!

    We rescued Maxwell last month at 6years old. He is a total momma's boy, always at my feet and pushes
    People out of my seat on his reclining loveseat.We figured out if we leave the leg rest out it is easier for him
    To climb up. He has lost 10lbs in the month we have had him and got clean bill of health from vet. He also climbs stairs now like a pro since he dropped to 50lbs. I love puppies to, but my lil man just stole my heart on first sight!
