    Question Webbed Feet?

    I am so sorry if this sounds stupid.. I've been wanting to ask but.... yea.. So, Frankie has webbed feet. I asked the man I got him from about Frankie's parents and he said they both have webbed feet but not like Frankie... The webbing between his toes goes all the way down to almost his nails... Now, I know EB's aren't usually good swimmers but I'm wondering if this may make a difference? He loves bath time and has a blast in the water but I am too paranoid with my Bully Baby to try it out.. What do you guys think?

    I'm not sure if it will help with swimming, it's the build of being so front heavy that makes bulldogs sink like a brick....and let's see a picture!

    I know Labs have webbed feet but not sure about other breeds. If he likes water, I'd certainly try it with a life jacket. My vet said that Bulldogs are not usually good swimmers because of the short neck & snout. When they raise their head up high enough to keep their nose out of the water then their back end automatically goes toward causing them to sink.
