    No I don't have her. I wasn't even looking for a puppy. He contacted me yesterday and said they had found the murmur at a puppy visit. I bought my current EB from this breeder about 10 months ago so he said he thought of me immediately for this girl.

    The amount that he is asking for is obviously the down payment correct? And he is going to write it in a contract that he will refund all money for her if need be due to the heart murmur? And whatever he writes in contracts if he writes them. IMO, I believe since he contacted you out of the clear blue and told you of the heart murmur, then I would tell him of the cost and distance and the vet checks and the what if she has to go back and the amount of that cost as well. And ask that he take that into consideration if things don't turn out good, I mean she would still have to be returned. He sounds like he just wants to make money no matter what but he did tell you about her health issue. I would still ask him because he will either say yes or he will say no. I would leave it at that if he says no but I also am not the one who he is speaking to in regards to that adorable little thing Those little eyes sure are pretty and screaming please come get me lol.

    Oh my gosh, that sweet little face.... How can you resist? As far as her current diagnosis goes, she is still very young and could potentially improve. It is really a gamble though, a grade 3 is very borderline as to whether or not it will get better. A grade one or two is most likely an innocent murmur, and will go away. A grade 4 or 5 will likely not go away. So a grade three could go either way. If you do decide to get her, you really want to find out if the grade is true.

    An echocardiogram should not be done until she's older, I think around 5 months.

    I would try to think of it this way, so you can have a realistic outlook. Many times surgery is not an option, and possible medications daily may be needed. If surgery is an option, you have to make that difficult choice as well because they are high risk surgeries. She may only be given a life expectancy of a couple years, but you can give her the best life she can possibly have.

    Hi There! What town is the breeder located? You might check Lone Star Bulldog Rescue if the breeder is located close enough to Fort Worth/Dallas area. I am from East Texas - Longview. I know this is a tough decision for you. Let go and let God take care of it.

    I am going to try and see if I can find people in the Ok area to help get her closer to Tx so that I can go ahead and get her. I feel it's the right thing to do. Gives me piece of mind anyhow. I have contacted rescue groups and they would assist but if she was to go to them.

    I applaud you for wanting to help her. The breeder is really a turd, guess he/she has to make some sort of money. Wish he/she would be humane and just give her to you or someone else willing to take care of her.

    For those of you that may be wondering what ever happened to this special needs pup.....well the breeder didn't get back to me after all. I arranged transportation to get her to a local bulldog rescue here and even had a dear friend donate money to get her here but he just vanished. I pray she's safe and I thank you for all your concerns and kind words.

    I just hoped that he didn't sell to an unsuspecting buyer as a healthy puppy thinking that he'll be long gone by the time the owner figures it out.

    Yes I hope so too. I begged him not to do that but of course he's obviously not an ethical person. It's so frustrating to know people are willing to do this to animals and people that are well intended
