    Default Really Really Random Question- puppy thoughts.

    Hi friends. My title starts off my question. Basically my rotten husband had to go and buy himself a "toy" car. It's all good, I'm teasing him. He works way to many hours at work of required overtime. He had one day off all of July! Man, If anyone else works like that around here I feel for you. Anyway..... Jacob, told me that I could get another bulldog! Again, joke, deal breaker, we don't play each other with, "you get, I get." It's been a topic for a long time. He knows how attached I am to my Bentley and that there will be more bullies in the future.

    So we have had Bentley for a year, and the talk of owning two has always been a conversation if everything went well with Bentley in our home. So I don't think last year was a good time. Now I'm almost back to school. I want to wait until next spring or summer, again, if all goes well. So my questions are,

    Is there a way to know if Bentley will accept another bully. He likes playing with other dogs on the street.
    Bentley is four, is that to much of a age difference?
    How soon do I have to plan for another fur family member?
    I know we cannot advertise breeders, but can anyone recommend how I get in touch with someone?

    Assuming all goes well, I physically plan our home for a bully baby later, So I'm not worried about those questions. Bentley is my number one priority. I don't want to change his life with another bulldog if it will hurt him. I'm just curious hearing about your perspective and experiences.

    tagging @g8erjackie , she just brought in another puppy and his boy, Ruckus totally accepted the baby sister with no issues. Hopefully she'll chime in with her experiences.

    For breeders, the names are not allowed to be published but I believe they can PM you.

    Good Luck.

    We adopted our Elsa a month before our Buster turned three and I can honestly say that it's as if they've lived together all of their lives. Elsa is completely blind and that might have something to do with it but other then that they sleep together, eat together, play together and everything else without any problems. Adopting a bulldog is a supper rewarding experience too and I totally recommend it to everyone who has a chance to get another bully. My advice is, if you can afford it and you feel the timing is right, just do it.

    I would suggest having a friend with a dog come over to your house. A dog may be friendly and accepting of another dog on the street or common area, but it could be an entirely different story in Bentley's home. Start introductions with a walk outside and then move to the yard and finally into the home. If Bentley has no reaction to this, you should be good to go. Good luck.

    Hey Krista, ever think about a rescue maybe?

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Yep! I need to figure out Bentley's allergies. Also, I read a long time a go a forum on Pet Insurance for our babies. I can't remember who said it, but I like the idea of Bentley having his own saving account. I'm working on creating an emergency base for all and any of his needs. Plus the possibilities of the new guy needed anything. I feel like that would be the responsible thing to do, peace of mind. I would like to wait for summer break next year, so I can be home everyday to train and care for the dogs. I plan ahead, I'm a weird list person! I know asking you guys would help adding to my list. Thanks!

    @TyTysmom Totally! Bentley was adopted. I looked at Detroit English Bulldog Rescue. I think that would be the closest option for us. Everyone I read about needed special attention or family environment. I always read no cats or small children when I checked it out. We have two cats, and I hope kids are in our future. I didn't think I would be a good fit for the rescues. I could call and ask.

    @TyTysmom, I haven't been to their site in a long time. I have our home working of of Dave Ramsey's plan. My goal after debt was to sponsor their program, assuming I wasn't a good fit. Do you know anything about the rescues?

    Yes, its true that many rescues tend to have health needs, etc. But from time to time you will find a younger or even close in age that does not. Mostly owner surrenders, etc. The only thing is that you have to constantly watch for updates. You could also submit an app, but tell them what you are looking for. It does take time for reviews, home inspections, etc but I know you said you were planning ahead. Just a thought, that's all. Also, even if you get a pup from a breeder, there is not guarantee they won't have any health issues either, even if the "claim" they won't. Ya know? Look at sweet Bentley, you lucked out with that stud muffin

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    @TyTysmom Right, I knew that when I was trying to find one before Bentley. Health issues are always a concern. I'll go ahead and give the Detroit rescue a call. I would like to explore a breeder option too. I don't want to be selfish but I would love to experience a puppy once. You are right that the recuses change frequently and they have a variety in age.

    Nice to hear from you today!
