They are so worth it! Unless you are absolutely sure you want a puppy, you can also look into Bulldog rescues. We got Jackson from a rescue and he was already house trained and knew basic commands. Also, he has very few health problems (thank God) and nothing serious that can't be handled. Please don't get a bulldog if you are not 100% sure that you want one. That is how they end up in shelters and rescues. They are a time and financial committment, but they are soooo worth it!
