That just adds to the creepy feeling of all that.
Just curious as to the health problems these "Rare" bullies have, do they have them? I never read anything about them other than about color and DNA. Owners just promote that and I never see anyone asking what to do about such and such or giving advice when another ask a ? in reference to things that we are always asking about or giving advice on. I think the colors on these dogs they sell are very pretty but I believe in AKC standard and so I always wonder about health problems especially if your going to pay the amount of money they ask for in selling a puppy as a pet not to mention what they ask for when it comes to stud fee, wow.
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
It's not part of the bulldog gene pool so in order for them to get those colors, they had to have been mixed. In essence, they're mutts.
Also, the merle gene is responsible for a crapload of health problems like deafness and blindness and skin conditions.
If only one dog is the carrier, the conditions won't manifest. But if you're constantly breeding the merle gene in, eventually all bulldogs would become mutts, and after a few generations, half would be carriers. That would bring in a whole new set of health problems. I think our breed has more than enough.
I can't even begin to describe how much disgust I have for these breeders. They're doing it only for the money. The consequences of their actions, the fact that they're introducing an unhealthy gene in doesn't concern them. They couldn't care less about bettering the breed- pure scum.
It's so sad.
In Germany there are also people offering rare coloured bulldogs for higher prices (but not such categories as $28000)...
Lilac and blue can be linked with a genetic disease called 'Blue Dobermann Syndrome'. I'm not shure if meanwhile there is a test to test if an individual (lilac/blue) carries this genetic disease, but I'm sure all those nonreputable breeders, backyard-breeders and puppymillers will never spend money on any testing...
I feel especially sorry for the females who are rare coloured or who are rare 'carriers' and who are in the hands of such greedy people - those females are the ones abused and exploited for getting those absurd amounts of money...
Thank you for this information, nycbullymama. I didn't know they abuse it on their own behalf.
Cruel greedy people...
