My daughter wanted me to add that "They're Cute" too.
When I was a child, I was DEATHLY Afraid of 'BLUE' a neighbors bulldog, I wouldnt get near him at all, I was SURE he was gonna eat me!
My wife had a bulldog years ago, and always talked fondly of her, so when we got the chance and rescued Gizmo...the rest is history (then we rescued Hershey) like they say, ya can't just be owned by 1 bulldog !

I have wanted a bulldog for as long as I can remember. I started buying books about 5 years ago about how to properly care for them. Two years ago I got very lucky and had an opportunity to get one and i jumped on it. I couldn't be happier, Bella is a great dog.I bring her to work about once a week and everyone loves her there, she get excited when she sees I am wearing my causal Friday clothes.
When I was stationed in Japan we baby sat a bulldog named Clara and Kristana was just a baby (picture is below taken almost 9 years ago). We now have a friend that has a bulldog named Mickey and everytime we went to visit he played with Kristana non-stop until we left. Kristana has been fasinated with bulldogs since she was a baby. Their loyalty, commitment, playful antics, and just the way they interact with all the family members had us hooked and knew we had to have a bulldog. Now we are owned by Amber and Ruby and that is just fine by all of us.
My son started dating a girl that had a 3 y/o male bully, Bruzer...they dated
3 yrs and I babysat him when they went on wkend trips & once for an entire
week when they flew to Chicago. Bruzer is a great bully & just so handsome
but as most here know, it's their personality that gets you! I started researching
and started looking for a rescue/adopt situation and adopted my Brutus almost
8 months ago and tragically lost him in surgery in Jan/2012.
A week ago, I adopted Cami, a 5 y/o retired breeder, her family's circumstances
had changed & they liked that I'm disabled & home w/her. She's wonderful and
I'll be posting her pics this week & her introductory post.
We were blessed & fortunate to find Brutus and feel the same about Cami.
My 1st bully, Brutus
RIP beloved boy.
My bf and I had been talking about getting a dog but couldn't agree on a breed. I like little lap dogs that dont need long walks/runs every day, especially since we were in an apartment at the time. My bf preferred bif manly dogs, like a pitbull or boxer, but apartment life wouldn't have been fair to a larger more active dog. We both knew it also had to be a breed tolerant of children. I startes researching, came across bulldogs, and thought they were a good comprimise. The bf took a loooong timee to come around, but my obsessive compulsive research and begging eventually changed his mind. I partially can thank ebd news bc his final caving remark was "im mean ny god you are already in a forum with more information than we will ever need". And of course as soon as we FINALLY found Mack, thr bf fell in love. They are even more bonded with each other than Mack is with me! So I always jokingly call then traders :-P

First, I love smooshy faces. We had a boxer for nearly ten years. Five years ago my son got an Olde English Bulldogge. He travels a lot, so she comes to Grandma's house for visits. She is a wonderful dog. So...my husband and I decided on an English Bulldog. I know they are a responsibility as my son's OEB has many of the same issues (allergies, etc). It's taken me almost a year to get over losing Gimli (boxer), but I knew I was ready to open my heart again. I really, really, wanted to rescue. I contacted rescues in Oklahoma and Missouri (I live in north central Kansas), neither one would do a home check outside a two hour radius. I was contacting and checking out different breeders when I found Lucy. One of the breeders had a picture of Lucy on her website. Lucy had been returned to the breeder when the couple that bought her divorced. The breeder has a stipulation in the contract that the dogs aren't resold or given away. I fell in love with her pictures. Four days later we drove about 2 1/2 hours to meet her. We fell even more in love with her that day. She'll be 10 months old next Monday and we're seriously thinking of getting another EB in a year or so. I love everything about EB personality.
Pete wanted to get a bully when we first started dating, its all he talked about. He even had a bulldog tattoo. Well, I did all the research, looked into all the health problems, and found the breeder. I was convinced that I did NOT want a bulldog, because they had the chance of having so much go wrong.
But at the time we were just dating, living in separate houses. So for Valentine's Day I bought him HIS very own bully.
Well, needless to say, it wasn't his for long! I fell in love, now Pan is considered my baby because he likes me more than he likes Pete. I take him everywhere with me. As I type Pan has his head laying on my lap and his behind pressed firmly against Pete. In my house, Pan is MY cuddle buddy and I wouldn't have it any other way!
