    Default Our first Bulldog! and Nervous

    Well we got our first bulldog today. He's about a yr old fawn brindle color. I've named him Gator!!! But for some reason I'm definitely nervous. Mainly because I hope my other dog gets along with him! Any suggestions?

    Just want to welcome you. All my dogs grew up together so I don't have any advice but hang on someone should be along shortly with some tips. Soon as you are able post some pics of Gator. Fawn brindle is mighty pretty. How did you find Gator? What kind of other dogs do you have and how old are they? Well stay tuned and let me say this is a great forum for new bulldog parents!

    Take them on a walk together before entering the house. Give your new boy praise and love in front of your other dogs to show them you have accepted him as part of your pack. I am still learning the pack leader stuff so I will also tag @Vicaroo1000 who is really good with this stuff!

    Here's our big guy i named him Gatoe cuz i love the tv show Swamp People. He's about 1yr old. I got from a lady who worked at an animal hospital he was brought in by his owner told the clinic to put him down, due to his penis being inverted.... Well the loving lady who's a vet tech said she'd take him in. Well he's had his surgery and was also fixed as well. The tech and her family are actually moving out state where it snows a lot and didn't think he would do well there. So i ended up with him... He was a gift to my husband for Father's Day... let me just OMG match made in heaven I have 2 other dogs as well Spot who's a 5yr old Aussie/boxer mix he's not liking Gator much right now but we're working on it. and i have 2yr chihuahua mix (whom my mom will be taking) Gator thinks he's a cat and well my chi isn't havient it at all LOL

    so last night was hard of course cuz the dogs just wanted to know who was who and who's boss and i just wanted to sleep lol But i'm trying to find something to help with Gator's shedding i've swept my floors no doubt 5 times today already...

    He's very handsome, if you made it through one night without incidence, you are half way home. Relax and keep calm and assertive. No stress necessary. It's your house, not their's and only humans are the boss. Don't put up with any crap and enjoy all the love they give you. Welcome to the wonderful world of Bulldom

    @lakermarie I agree with @Sherry. You have to be the leader and let them know what is acceptable and what is not! I have a 5 year old pitbull when Brutus was brought home and no doubt they tested the boundaries but I had to let them know what was accepted. The bad behavior has to stopped before it happens if possible(most times not) You will do fine! Great pictures of him...He is sure a cutie pie! @Vicaroo1000 will have some good advice for you!

    So Gator thinks the chihuahua is a cat? Mr. Wilson sees little dogs as prey too. Funny cuz I have four indoor cats and he doesn't care about them. You say he has a problem with the doggie door. You mean you have to pull him the rest of the way in? I've always wanted to put in a doggie door but I'm afraid my BabyGirl would just go outside and lie in the hot sun or chase stray cats. I let out Mr. Wilson out last night and he walked right into a stray cat. Boy those strays are tough! It came at Wilson hissing and scratching and I was just trying to grab hold of Wilson so it could run away but it came to Wilson swiping and scratching. Wilson got a nasty scratch just next to his eye and he already has eye issues from his allergies. Gave me such a scare. Now I go outside to make sure no cats are roaming in the yard before I let them go outside to do their business.

    Welcome to the site and congrats on your new pup. It will take some time for them to find their pecking order but be calm and you be the boss. It is also good to take them on a walk together, it will help. Plus I see you live in Arizona, so if you are not a stay at home mom and can watch him all the time, loose the doggie door. Bullies love to go out side and sun and will get too hot and instead of getting up and coming inside, they will just lay there and die of heat stroke. It doesn't take long either. That being said I would love to see more pics of your cutie.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    @ fontanafox I have to help him get his back legs up and over, but seems he prefers us just to open the door instead! @Davidh oh I never leave the doggie door open when we are gone my other dog stays outside he has his own bed and house and pool for the swim well more like one of those old school blue kiddie pools but I only fill it enough so he can get his paws wet.. I should have more pics up this week!
