    Well....I must be the luckiest person EVER! We paid $1800 for Jake..then got $100 off because he developed an umbilical hernia after I picked him. We were offered a refund or a different pup..but that hernia was nothing. She got a quote from the vet about how much it would ost to repair..$75 and took off $100. Now..they were neighbors and friend of a friend..they had the mom..and used sperm from a great breeder locally...andthe same breeder Jake's mom was from. But..technically I'm sure they would be called a "Backyard Breeder". This was their second and final litter. And all pups from first litter were very healthy. The pups lived in their home and were manhandled by their 4 kids! I went about 3 times a week to stalk Jake.. he is a very healthy guy and all of his brothers live in the neighborhood. No health problems at all and we all go to the same vet. See..I'm one of the lucky ones!


    I need to add..He has a great pedigree..AKC registered and DID come with a full health guarantee.

    If it were me? I wouldn't purchase a bully without a health certificate , certified for one year, and must be taken to your vet within 3 days of purchase. Wormed and vaccines.

    Me personally, I invited the people to come see where the pups are, but before they entered the area, I had hand sanitize set up for them to use.

    It's definitely your call, you should get guaranteeing that states that if the dog gets ill from genetics, a refund or another puppy is in order.

    If you are already set on this puppy, I will advise you to get these paper work's I mentioned. If it doesn't feel right? maybe it isn't . and find out why the other's passed, this is your new puppy, she at least owes you that.

    I can not comment on the cost of the bullys over in the USA, as I am in Australia and I paid $3,500.00 for Ftse which I did have a look at some for $1,800 and to me they did not look like a full breed and they could not show me any papers stating otherwise. But I would like to say about only 1 puppy surviving out of four when I had my pugs and she had her litter os 7 puppies only 4 survived the night 3 were born dead and then 1 0f the 4 died the next morning out of the three remaining puppies which I kept all three as I could not prt with them which made my total of pugs 5 and you are only allowed to have two where we live. they were the most healthy pugs around and they lived to the ages of 12 and 14 what I am getting at maybe it was just something like with my litter the vet put it down to a split litter as we has Tea-arnna artificially insaminated as they would not do it naturally and then within a few days later they did which they said resulted in two litters, I do not know if this is so and if this can happen but some of the puppies were extremely small.

    So we decided on the little guy we had our eye on. He came with a health certificate and coverage up to 1 year. We took him to the vet today and he's doing great! I'll be posting some pics shortly (need to figure out how to do it :p) So the others in his litter didn't make it due to breathing problems. Our little guy was the only one to come out and breath on his own. The nurses tried to help the other 3 but they just didn't pull through.
