    Default Question Our puppy comes home today!

    Hello everyone!
    Im brand new here. We are bringing home a 8 week old female puppy today.

    What kind of tips do you have for us? We have a large family (5 kids ages 15 down to 1) and 3 chihuahuas.
    In the past our bullies had no problems with the other chi's but we only had 3 or 4 kids around then.
    One bully we brought home as a pup the other was a rescue.

    Its been a couple years since we had a bulldog pup in the house and I'm just looking to see what everyones' tips are for acclimating and house training.
    I wont have all kids and all dogs out when she comes home this afternoon, but will introduce one at a time so puppy isnt overwhelmed.
    Im sure I have more questions but any advice you all have is much appreciated!

    Welcome to EBN
    first off we will need lottsa pics lol
    As you are bring home a pup only thing that would be the top of the list for Me would be make sure as you have a very busy household is make sure the pup gets a lot of rest they need that at a young age and everyone will want to play, cuddle ect ect with the pup but it should be limited for a bit , one other thing buy GOOD pup food remember the allergies they can have a good food will go a long ways in producing a strong fit dog later on . Great news let us know how it is going .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    there

    From what im reading you will know what to do. I wouldn't worry. As you know just make sure the Brady Bunch dont all want to hold on and pull puppy left n right. It's hard to not want to hold n cuddle a puppy. Everyone gave you great advice up there. Have fun and we're here for you.
