    Default Does the amount someone pays for a bully really secure a good home?

    I dont know why but some people seem offended when I tell them Mr. Beefy was given to me. Its kindof like you didnt pay alot of money for him so you wont be able to afford to care for him. I dont understand this? Can anyone shed some light on this subject.?

    No, I do not agree with that at all. However, the owner should have disposable income for emergencies and give their dogs the best food and care possible. If they do not have these things- they should not own an English Bulldog. I met someone once who wanted an English Bulldog, but she did not even have a phone!!!!

    That is so my night mare....Someone that can afford a bully may not have a good home at all for them....so it can go either way .... I know I am being way to careful and selective on where my girls wind up..... but I know in my heart someone somewhere will wind up with a wonderful puppy and will take great care of them. I have to believe it or they will stay with me .....

    I dont think you can be to selective, when the guy called me about Mr.Beefy I gave him vet references and let him come to my house and see where we lived and meet my girls. I have contacted ALOT of breeders in florida looking for a deaf or cleft bully pup but most breeders will not place those puppies. its sad

    My little Bertie didn't cost me much....all I had to pay for were her 1st shots. She was given to me by a Vet. Her mother was left at the vet for a C section and after the puppies were delivered, the owner never came back. She left the mother and her folder with the AKC papers and the pre registered papers for the puppies. I guess she just couldn't afford the dog and figured if she left it with a vet it and the pups would get a good home. All I had to pay was $40, so I do not agree that you have to spend a lot of mopney on a bulldog to give them a good home. My Bertie has health insurance, gets quality food, and gets lots of attention from me. I have a cocker spaniel also and they love each other so much. They are always playing or curled up sleeping. Usually you will see both dogs and teh cat all curled up wherever they are in the house all together. My cat thinks he is a dog too.

    I have seen people that can afford to pay a few thousand for a dog, but I wouldn't trust them to give an animal or even a real kid a good home!

    That is soo great ..Your Bertie is in great hands , I wanted to buy a puppy from breeder and asked if she would take installments and i was laughed at. The puppy was deaf and being that i've had a deaf dog before it would have went to a great home and been able to thrive but all the person wanted was upfront. Makes me sad i still think about her

    Look at all these people that paid thousands of dollars for bullies and they are now in rescue. Take Norman for example. His whole entire family are champions... I'm sure the original people that bought him paid thousands... and I paid 50 bucks for him from rescue!

    It was not the amount of buying a Bulldog it was the medical bills that concerned me. I have wanted a Bulldog for many years, but being divorced and raising my 2 boys I knew I could not afford the up-keep. I re-married last Sept. after being divorced for 13 years. My boys are out on their own (23-26 yrs old) and My birthday is in Oct. when my new husband ask me what I wanted I KNEW not only would Vegas have a fantastic home with lots of attention and love, but I could now afford one. So on my 46th Birthday I got my Vegas!! I waited many years to be a bully owner because I had enough sense to know when I was able to provide a good home and HEALTH care.

    I agree with everyone here and being able to spend thousands on a bully does NOT make you a good bully owner. But I kinda can see where if you dont know the person that does show a breeder that maybe you do care enough about the dog to save the money up for one. If you dont have much to go on as far as who you are selling to that would be an indicator I suppose. Not very accurate like was posted, these dogs are ending up in shelters regardless of their blood lines.

    I would think if you got your Bully for free or a small fee, you'd be able to give it a better home because you'd have a couple thousand still in your pocket. I think they're just jealous because they didn't get a free one.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
