    Question Bulldog puppy may have landed in my lap....Feedback please!

    Hmmmm... so you know, I was thinking of my next dog being a rescue...but this weekend at a family party, my uncle's girlfriend told me her daughter was thinking of selling her EBD puppy...she said her daughter was 'tired' of the dog and now the dog has gotten 'big'. WTH? She asked if I wanted to buy the dog from her daughter. They know I have Petunia and had Samson before that...so they know I am very familiar with the breed.

    She bought the dog from a breeder for $1500 and I don't know if she is willing to sell the dog still for the same amount, but I am really disturbed about this.
    I am tempted to just buy the dog because who knows how she will treat the poor thing. I gave her my number and told her to tell her daughter to call me before she did ANYTHING but I still have not heard from her.

    Thoughts?

    RIP Samson el Torito and Petunia Belle

    How old is the pup? When you say you wonder if she will sell for the same price, are you thinking she will be trying to make a profit off the dog? If anything, she should obviously ask for less than she paid. She sounds like a horrible dog mom and I really hope you can take the puppy and give it a better life!

    Matt, I have no idea how old the pup is...All I know is that her name is Molly. I am worried that she will want to make a profit off of her. However, I am more worried that Molly will have a terrible life with people who don't give her the love and attention she deserves. Most breeders I know will BUY BACK the dog they sold you if you find you cannot keep them for whatever reason...but again, I don't know the particulars.

    I really DO think I would take her...sight unseen!

    wow..can you imagine how many thousands of stories there are out there similar to this? they would have some nerve asking for that money or more back but I totally agree with you the biggest thing is getting it away from her and with someone who loves her. poor dog. Good luck!

    I would do it in a heartbeat. Wow Petunia could have a sister!! You have a heart of gold to do something like this. If you can handle the costs I think it's a fantastic idea!

    I would try to get her info and call and tell her you are serious about buying her dog. I think I would take the dog no matter what she asked just because i would not be able to sleep thinking the dog wasn't cared for. good luck
