    He looks like a bulldog to me but he's so young, I'm thinking younger than 8 weeks. The tail though.. hmm.. I know some bulldogs have longish tails. Could be he does as well and he'll just grow into it. Either way, too early to tell yet.

    Another sign of a scam would be the location. Backyard breeders will often offer to meet you somewhere to ‘make the distance less’ for you but really they just don’t want you to see the conditions the dogs live in or they don’t want you to see the parents. did you pick up the pup from the house, or did they meet you somewhere? Did you ask to see both of the parents, or pictures of both parents?


    How did your vet appointment go today?

    He's too young to really tell, he could be a mix or his tail could just be a longer tail. Some bullies have them, it's rare because it's a trait that is purposely not bred for. The breeder sounds awful -- it makes me furious when babies have fleas and are taken away too early. If she ate one and rolled onto one she wasn't being watched and cared for properly. The mother probably doesn't have a great life. Poor thing.

    5 weeks is really far too young to be away from it's mom, I doubt he was weaned properly. I'd suggest seeing a vet ASAP and you might need to supplement with formula -- although I don't have any experience with pups this young. He's super cute! Full EB or not, he looks like he'll be a great family member!

    Ok i called the vet to see if i can bring him in but they said to wait one more week he is to young for shots and all this other stuff. i should just bathing in with down. And bring him in next week. But he is fine and doing good. So we will see next week when he is 6 weeks old what the vet says on 4 March . And i called the Lady back and ask her why dose he have a long tail and she got rude and told me if i don't know nothing about english bulldogs i didn't had should to get one. And she kept changing her sorry. She told me they just got the mother from a friend and they did not know was pregnant and he just had english bulldogs so it must be a eb?! And than she said her boyfriend told me he dont think he is purebred. He never said that to me and i ask bouth if it is a purebred they both said yes. I don't trust them i don't know if he is or not. She also said bouth parent have long tail!? And yes i really was thinking to report her i think in florida they need to be 8 weeks and have o be vet checked before they are sold. Sorry my english isn't that good.

    I would be willing to bet that it is a mix and an accidental one...but, that is not all bad. You could end up with a healthier dog and some of the great personality of an EB.

    very good point. If there is a mix in there, not being a purebred could be a blessing due to the lesser health issues. I am with you on that.

    Winnie's manners class had an American Bulldog and she had a long tail like your puppy. She was really sweet and cute.
