    Here is why i DO NOT like breeder 1.
    -"GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT.... DON'T MISS OUT", an english bulldog is NOT a 'present', they are a 8-14 year time love and patience commitment!
    -They refer to the dogs first by number, then by name. Like items on an invoice?!
    -Each pup is pictured on a different surface like desertsky pointed out. that's weird.
    -"CHECK OUT THEIR MARKINGS......WOW!" seriously? sell me a sham wow while you're at it.
    -No picture of mama or daddy.

    I know i'm weird, but i just get a bad feeling from them.

    -Lastly, if ANY of the dogs are being kept outdoors in the winter, heating lamps or not, that is no place for a bulldog.

    I noticed the "selling points" too @sheila - pets should never be encouraged as Christmas presents. It seemed kind of sketchy.

    And....come on! Why not give us a photo that is actually in focus? I'd like to see if the eyes and nose are clear! You don't get to see any of that with the photos from breeder 1. @TomnZon

    I'm thinking if you go visit #2 first then you won't even need to go visit #1.

    I am thinking I want the second male, with brindle eyes and the brindle spot on his shoulders... def. go to the breeder #2's house- forget about breeder #1. They sound like bybs to me.

    Well I am late on input and everyone has said everything I think. lol. I agree go with breeder #2, They sound much better than the first. My boys would never sleep outside with a heater or not so why would a puppy? Big no no to me let alone all the other things pointed out that I didnt even notice.

    Well said Desertskybulldogs and Jillh10. I like both your statements...I would not even go to #1 one of the pups has bad eyes... sorry JMO they look runny. Being keep out side is a no-no... Where is all the hands one when they are out side. you need to watch these guys at all times when they are little.... I am not so into natural bith with them but some can do it....Cadi lost one as she went into labor the moring she was to have her C-section... you could lose a whole litter by not getting her to a vet in time.... (I am venting here I think) but that all being said and done.... pups are ok now so that is of no matter. Call the vet that has seen them for shots, askthe vet questions about the litter .... litters should be registered, but new owner registered the pup when they get it. ask to see the mom and dads AKC regisrations too seeing that shows you they are the parents... make sure they are the parents, watch the pups make sure they play together well. well that is a few things to think about.... make sure you take the pup to the vet for a health check right away too.
