First of all, I'm so sorry about Bentley. It doesn't matter that he never made it "home".. You still had fallen for him! I totally understand the reasons you want a pup. You certainly don't have to feel guilty or uncomfortable around us. Rescuing a Bully will happen if it's meant to be. I don't have much experience searching for a breeder..Jake came from the neighborhood and through word of mouth.
I would encourage you to let people here know you are looking for a good breeder and I see you are in Ohio. While we are not permitted to recommend a breeder to you on the forum, members are certainly able to send you a private message with any recommendations or info they might have. I will tag a few members that might have some tips for you too.
Hang in there..the right pup will find you!
