Selecting the best puppy question
Hi Iím new to this site but I have a few questions about how to choose or selecting a English Bulldog puppy that none of the 8 books I have answers. What Iím dying to know is ďphysicallyĒ what distinguishes a potential show quality puppy from one that just going to be a pet? Considering that a puppy is often sold at 8 weeks or more and has good general health and temperament aside what physical characteristics do breeders look at? As far as I understand it most bulldogs donít show their potential as prospect show dogs until about 3-6 months of age. So how does a breeder decide which ones to keep for themselves? I understand breed standard guides; I have several however they only apply to adultís not the cute adorable wrinkly, chubby puppies.
The other thing I canít seem to find is an accurate photo coat color chart for the breed? Does anyone know where I can find one online or from a book?
