    Default Did i get scammed?

    I bought a English Bulldog Puppy on craigslist i always wanted one. He said he have to rehome it fast the mother ate one and two got crushed on the phone he said they where 8 weeks when i got there his wife said he is 5 weeks. I was so happy i am about to get a English bulldog that i was not even looking at the puppy right he has a long tail and i think i got scammed.!? Can somebody help me and tell me if this little boy is purebread? he also has flees i will bring him to the vet on Monday and what can i do for the flees right now? I bought puppy formula and he is eating. Can i add a pic of him anywhere so you guys can tell me what think? this is the add from him -00i0i_iv3oxhcnajf_600x450-jpg-00000_87nrzfqguwo_600x450-jpghttp://jacksonville.craigslist.org/wan/4901203460.html I fell so stupid now

    well I don't know if you were scammed but you know the old saying if it sounds to good to be true it probably isn't
    As far as The puppy is concerned he doesn't look like a 8 week old pup I cant see his tail real well and some bulldogs have a little bit longer of a tail (I have one girl who has a tail that is about 3 inches long) and as for the flees you can give him a bath in dawn dish soap the blue one or in pert shampoo but make sure you do it in a room where it is warm and you dry him really well you don't want him getting a chill at all. other that that he is a cute little guy if you could post a better pic of his face and tail it might be easier to tell. Did you get akc papers with him?

    you could try it as long as it says it is safe for puppies I usually stick with dawn or pert when there that little at least he is white makes those fleas easier to see on him. That is sad that people do that especially when he is so little. My brother had someone do something similar to his (not a bulldog though) but the guy claimed the pup was 8 weeks and according to the vet he didn't think the pup was over 4 weeks the poor little thing didn't even have all his teeth through yet when he sold him. So sad but at least your little guy will get all kinds of loving now

    Hmm. It's too young to tell if it's a purebred EB right now in my opinion. It looks like a bulldog to me it's just the tail seems pretty long though ? But it's a adorable one! Maybe by 8-10 weeks old you'll be able to tell

    Hi Ramona, he looks like a EB to me, and he's absolutely gorgeous. I have actually seen a EB with a long tail.
    Maybe he is an OEB

    He does look like an EB, or at least mostly. He's a cutie and a longer tail can be a blessing.
