    I bought a pet store dog once (not a bulldog). We loved him, of course. I regretted our decision for a long, long time though. He never did housebreak at all. I used every technique known to man, and I mean EVERY technique. After two years and HUGE investments of time, energy, and cash, we rehomed him. It was terrible, traumatic for the kids, cost us a fortune in cleaning and hiring professional trainers, and made me feel generally like hell for a long time. After the puppy had been peeing and pooping in his cage for weeks during that formative age, his basic desire to in any way avoid his own excrement was permanently overidden. So, yeah, I don't recommend it at all.

    And that doesn't look like an English Bulldog to me, either. Cute dog, though. I wouldn't take a pet store dog if someone paid ME, though.

    What a wonderful thread to read. While I always feel sorry for the ones that are in pet stores, if society keeps buying them then the puppy mills will be able to continue to flourish.

    Congratulations on your new guy.....he's gorgeous!! Can't wait to hear his story.
