    Congrats on your pup, she is adorable. As long as you get a good bloodline from a show breeder, you chances of having an unhealthy pup goes way down. Usually the problems come from people who just breed to anything and pass down the undesirable traits

    Almost five years ago, I was in your shoes, about to bring Arnold home and posting on this very site. LOL, Now I have 3 bullies, 2 English and a Frenchie. I have learned a lot from this group. IN fact, I usually walk into the vet's, only with Bertha btw, and tell them how I want the treatment to go. Arnold and Petey are very healthy. Bertha is a weird problem magnet, some not associated with the breed at all. I think your biggest concern is how will I only have one bullie, lol

    She is a beauty!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Welcome to EBN! You've joined a very breed knowledgeable site & wonderful, caring members
    that truly care about helping you & your bully be happy & healthy. An easy site to navigate &
    lots of great articles to guide you, and plenty of bully puppy education. Any intelligent person
    would naturally begin to worry about health issues once researching this breed, so much back
    yard breeding has truly caused horrors & heartbreak. However, I've been amazed at how many
    bulldogs that have been issue free during their lifetimes & the numbers of 10-13 year old bullies.

    Your baby is so adorable, can't wait to see more pics of her growing up! Can't wait to read about
    your visit tonight either Again, welcome here and don't be shy...we're certainly not, lol


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    She couldn't have been any cuter. She was fussy when we picked her up and then she just gave in and passed out. Can not wait to get her!!

    I see where your coming from with the worry and like everyone has said good food, great vet and keep them healthy us all you can do I have been very lucky with FTSE just a few food allergies which we have sorted out and Cherry eye which was fixed. I had way more problems with my pugs than I have had with FTSE he has actually been a breeze after my pug Tei- Arnna.

    Once you bring that precious baby home all your worries will disappear and you will fall so in love with her, she is absolutely gorgeous

    Oh goodness, she is CUTE!!!!!! I wanna squeeze that little face!

    Don't worry, that's the first step! Figure out her quirks, likes, dislikes, keep her on a good quality food and treats and you should be just fine. Everything else with bullies is manageable. Ruthie and Brutus couldn't be more different. One has health problems, one doesn't. One is a perfect angel, the other is a hellion. Make sure your vet is well versed in bullies and you should be just fine! Best of luck with that little baby.

    Congratulations on deciding to be owned by a bulldog. Most of the folks have mentioned a high quality food, make sure you have metal bowls for food and water, a crate to crate train and keep them safe while you aren't watching them. What I have found with my girls is just watching them to make sure they have a safe environment to live in. That means keeping things up they cannot swallow so no obstructions; we try to bully proof the house as much as possible which also meant we live with the bare and I mean bare necessities. hehe; bullies are curious and check out everything and will get into everything; they are worse than having two year olds so, multiple a two year old by 3 and that is what you have. They will destroy things, shred things, eat your shoes, woodwork, drapes, shower curtains, children's toys (my daughter had a brigade of Barbie amputees growing up), anything they can get into their mouths they will eat or try to eat it. DO NOT TAKE your EYES off your new bully, always know what they are up to all the time and that should eliminate some of the health situations. No stuffed animals until you know how your bully acts, they may eat the stuffing. As long as you know what they are up to that is 3/4's of the battle. Good luck!!

    Omgoooodness! Watch out- I picked up Lockjaw and 6 weeks later headed back to my breeder to pick up his sister. Lol
    Have you checked out your breeder? We're both parents on site? Did they have health certificates? Vet records? Make you sign a contract? If they have that, you can see how healthy the parents are and if they had any problems. That will help determine the health of your baby.
    The only issue I move had so far with either of them was that Lockjaw popped a cherry eye. Other than that - no real problems. Parents both had wide nares, but mine turned out with narrow nares. Just like someone suggested in an earlier post- we had both their nares widened during spay/neuter surgeries. Now we just tell people they both got nose jobs! LMBO- anyway, coconut oil is awesome to start her out on. It helps keep their skin and coat nice and soft aside from al of the health benefits it offers. Apple Cider vinegar in her water. That has tons of benefits as well but really helps prevent bladder infections. With hazel wipes to wipe folds daily. If you start everything early on- she'll be used to it and it'll be an easier transition. Any transitions with food should be slow to avoid tummy issues and diarrhea.
    You'll learn as you go, you can never do too much research and this forum is AMAZING!!!
