    Default If 1 more person says my dog is funny looking,ugly, or wrong, I may CHOKE them.

    I am sooo tired of hearing aww he soo ugly. Are you sure he's a bulldog? Is he a boxer? Is he supposed to look like that? Are you sure he isn't a mutt? He's an English bulldog? Are you sure? He's awful skinny. .These are comments I have heard by people with bulldogs for crying out loud. Even though he is a rescue , I'm sure he is a pure bulldog. I have akc papers , I talked to the breeder and the vet that delivered him! NO he is not fat but fat isn't healthy. He is a very healthy weightt .Yes he is a little tall but the vet says he will grow tall first then wide,and he is just going to be a big boy. No he probably isn't a show quality dog, but I got him out of someones garage and I couldn't care less if he meets breed standards. I couldn't care less if the vet told me he was actually a goldfish! He is MY dog. No he is not ugly. Yes i'm sure he is not a boxer. DOOR KNOBS! Sometimes people can be so rude , often without meaning to. It makes me so mad. I don't tell you that your kids are ugly (even though I often think my dog is cuter than they are) Sorry just needed to vent.

    I think he's very handsome! When Bertie was a little pup, I heard the same thing...people said she looked like a baby boxer, and they asked if I was sure she was a English Bullie. She even got kind of tall (I thought so anyway) and then she grew into everything, her face grew into her muzzle, her body grew into her legs and now....there is no doubt to anyone that sees her that she is an English Bulldog.

    I have had so many people ask me when i first got Blake if he was a boxer. I got aggravated real quick so I know what you mean. I agree he is cute. that is all that matters

    I also get confused looks as my Bulldog is taller than most. He was the largest of a litter of nine pups. I purchased him from a breeder and I saw his mom and dad and they are standard size.

    @dozersmama from 1 beautiful bullies mum to another beautiful bullies mum Dozer is adorable
    He is a growing baby and, I am sure everyone will agree, our babies grow up first then out

    As for others maybe you should start saying " hmmm your daughter seems freakishly tall....are you sure she's human?? Could she be part alien or something like that?"

    And i'm sorry but Bully owners that question authentisity of another persons dog are not only rude but Snobs
    Tell them to go take a jump in he river

    Weeeeeeeeeell, just like my Duke (who is now almost 7 years old and weighs 87.6 lbs.) they are definitely English Bulldogs. English Bulldogs have two distinct styles........short body........and long body........Duke is a long body.......just as yours is. It took two years for Duke to completely fill out. The short bodies are not as healthy (in most cases) as a long body. That is simply because the short bodies have more of the dwarf genes found in their DNA makeup. More and more long bodies (thanks to breeders efforts to to try and breed out the dwarf genes) are showing up in litters. So much so, that the AKC has been looking at changing some of the standards of the breed for show competition. Another words English Bulldogs are still in development stage of a mixture of what they represent today and changing back to the original standards of the AKC almost 150 years ago before dwarfism caused all the genetic changes. Great looking bulldogs!!!
    The only difference I see (and this may be because of your camera angle) is the amount of wrinkles in their faces......Duke has 5 wrinkles....which is 2 more than the average bulldog. When he was growing everybody thought he was a Sharpi.

    People on facebook all the time tell me what a cute boxer I have my brother is famous for saying my bullies are so ugly they have a face only a mother could love ..probably why I only talk to him 3 times a year.... People often speak without thinking. I chalk it up to poor upbringing and walk away.

    Yep there are so may people who are just rude out there. I dont get many of the boxer thing but that is probably cuz Cutty is the stocky type. Tons of people just dont know what he is. I get tired of that comment "wow, he is fat." No he isnt fat, he is almost perfect in weight. ugh...

    @mike bayblock have you noticed how many more wrinkles they develop as they get older? Cutty is 5 1/2 and I actually just noticed a new, deep one that I swear was maybe a crease before. When he was young he had a couple but boy now they just keep getting deeper and more of them. lol. Guess its like us, wrinkling as we age.

    OMG!!!! It makes me soooo mad!!!How many times Ive had people tell me ,what an ugly dog-Unfreakingbelivable! before I would not know what to responed, but know I am just as rude , if someone makes a comment like that about Mocha I just snapp back, how would you like it If I said your child was ugly?? It is rude and hurtfull. i even had an argument with family memebers(including my own Mother) over this on facebook. Now that Ive made it clear to them I havent had a problem. I went to Petco after work yesterday with Mocha and a lady came over and said -your dog is fat- In said -Oh you think so, yours looks a little scrawney

    my mom (we aren't the closest but see each other often) calls Bullet "homely". i've told her how rude she is when she says that. personally, i could care less what people think as i think he his beautiful. oh, but she does talk and pet him when she comes over so i know she likes him. thankfully Bullet doesn't talk and tell her how he thinks she looks.
