    Default just got 2 english bulldog puppies 2 weeks old bottle feeding help

    A few days ago my fiancée and I responded to an add we saw on cregislist about English Bulldog puppies who were being bottle fed because the mother had a csection and wont nurse them or have anything to do with them. I bought 2 they are 2 weeks old today eyes not open yet. I am starting to question if they are purebred or if I was scammed. She brought 2 bull dogs with her when I picked up the pups but the puppies really don't look like the parents mother is all white with a little brown spots here and there and dad is brindle with white face chest feet. All 8 puppies were fawn black masks white on chest some have a white strip on face and a white foot. Can people post pictures of what a just turned 2 week old English bulldog pup should look like. both mom and dad had very large nose wrinkle and were very wrinkley where pups are not showing very many wrinkles and no nose wrinkle at all. Is this normal at just turned 2 weeks old today.

    First things first at 2 weeks old they should not be away from their mom yet. Why did they sell them at 2 weeks. Normally you can not take them home until after atleast 8 weeks?? Even if they will not nurse they need to hear her heartbeat

    You can easily Google pictures of baby bulldog pups. A better question is why in the heck were they selling puppies that are only 2 weeks old! That's awful! Poor little babies They should be with their mother and littermates until at least 8 weeks.

    Holy smokes, it's criminal that anyone would sell puppies that young but Craigslist is full of them. I have to agree with Tasha if you google 2 week old EBD puppies you'll get pages of them. I would take them back and get your money back and rescue a bulldog or find a reputable breeder.

    Legally, the puppies are not to be separated from their mom until at least 8 weeks old. To have a C-section is the norm so really not an excuse. The mother rejecting the babies is possible but being the mother, she should have milk that the babies can consume and with the help of the humans in the household, the puppies should be nursing. Something is not adding up. The babies are way to young to be separated, end of story.

    Because I feel bad for these babies, I'd be scared to take them back, bc who knows what they will end up doing with them. I can tell you that bullies don't have wrinkles yet at that age, they slowly get them as they grow older. Also, have you done research on bullies this young? You are going to have to feed them every couple of hours, and if possible get something like a heating pad, wrap it with blankets and put it with them. I hate to scare you, but as all others have said, they are far too young to be separated from mama, and I fear for their lives Can you search a local bulldog rescue near you that could possibly assist you? Or at least give you some good advice. Your main concern should be getting these babies healthy, and keeping them safe with round the clock monitoring... not so much that you got ripped off or if they are purebread. Just saying.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    You were scammed no matter if they're pure bred or not. They should be with their mother (nursing or not) and litter mates until at least 8 weeks old. Why would you go and buy pups that young?

    Yeah I'm not sure I would return them either. I would feel too guilty about what could happen to them. Google everything you can about raising pups this young and be prepared to do a lot of work to keep them alive. I would also be calling your local aspca on the people.

    Do you have a veterinarian set up to help with these young pups yet?

    You need to take these pups to a vet IMMEDIATELY… 2 weeks is WAY too young to be taken from the mother, but it's besides the point now. A reputable vet will let you know if he believes the pups are purebred or not AND advice you on how to care for the babies IF they were truly rejected. Whoever you purchased these pups from should be held accountable… most states do NOT allow you to sell pups before 8 weeks of age. Did you receive any paperwork regarding these pups… AKC registration?!!

    Wow, I cannot believe how this happened, but I do want to support you through this so you can raise these sweet babies to be happy and healthy. The breeder should be ashamed of themselves!!

    The best thing to feed them right now would be goat milk, it is the closest thing to mom's milk. They cannot regulate their temperature until after 3 weeks of age, so you must keep them warmed with hot water bottles, heat lamp, ect.

    Here is a couple of pictures of 2 week old pups. The first picture is a 2 week old pup and a 4 week old pup-- as you can see they are twice as big in size in just a couple weeks.
