    Default From Today’s Daily Telegraph UK

    A sad day for English Bull Dog Lovers

    The only way I could post this was the screenshots. I couldn’t get a link to work. Just click to enlarge.

    That link didn't work for me initially until I logged into a UK server through my VPN. Now it seems to be working. It said the Dutch kennel club banned from registration 12 flat faced breeds including French bulldogs, English bulldogs, pugs, Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Pekingese,Japanese chin, shih tzu, griffon Bruffellois, griffon Belge, petit brabancon, affenpinscher.

    Maybe this will be a wake up call for breeders to produce healthier breeds that look roughly the same.

    Not surprising, many vets in US are also pushing to stop the breeds of ‘flat face’ breeds

    I got one of those lifetime VPN offers from Stacksocial for something like 25 US . The one I'm using is called Windscribe which when installed puts an icon on my web browser that I can click on and change which country I'm connecting to.


    I think the KeepSolid VPN for 40.00 would be pretty reliable, and there's a 20% sale off on stacksocial this weekend with code SUMMERSAVE20 .KeepSolid has specific VPNs for Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney, etc. if you wanted to watch Netflix UK for example

    They don't need to ban them, just push for healthier outbreeding to modify the flat face somewhat. eg. I was reading that Valley Bulldogs from Nova Scotia are an old half boxer half English bulldog cross breed that have inherited the best features of each. They don't look as cute as English bulldogs though.

    Or bantam bulldog, like @helsonwheels has

    Definitely Nyala has a lot less breathing issues than an EB. Nowhere near. Heads is much smaller with a tad longer nose n they do have a bulky chest. She’s on the taller side. Why she needs to lose a good 5 lbs. Sadly a lot never heard of that breed. They’ve been around since 1800. Hard to find but they’re out there. I doubt very much I’ll be getting another EB once Jake goes. I do agree the breeders needs to get back on track with EB. It’s ridiculous having a dog with so many issues. One issue brings another issue. From my experience with EB, I say it often, it’s also what you feed them. If you get them as a puppy, I wouldn’t even screw around with kibbles anymore. Go raw all the way. Really helps a lot especially for that breed. It is a challenging breed and why it’s not normal for any breeder keeping that nose as flat as they can, the bigger the rope the better, that massive crown n a massive wide chest. All that needs to change. Just not healthy n extremely costly for some owners. There’s a reason why there’s tons for adoption in the US. Here in Canada we don’t have any for adoption. Idk if people here are more aware or it’s simply not a fashionable breed here. I really don’t know why.

    Interesting and complex issue. I wonder how efficient such a stop of registrations will be, though, since not all owners care whether their pup is registered or not. I guess there is a risk of creating an increasing market for bad breeding practices.
    @RiiSi - how do you look on this?

    Nyala was at someone’s private house in Edmonton n not at the breeder’s who’s 1hr further north. It was an ad from the breeder who knew someone in Edmonton. I drove down to go see this 3 month brindle pup. I walked in she was playing with a massive 80lb brindle EB. I figure that’s dad. Anyway, it took 3 visits as I wasn’t 100% sure. Nyala didn’t look like an EB even though that lady said it was. I’ve read back then like we say here “they change” as they grow. So I brought Nyala home on the 3rd time visiting her. According to this lady, no one seem to one want her as she was over 3 months, didn’t look like an EB, dark brindle, smaller head n longer legs. Each time I visit her she n that big EB male were running around like brats.... free for all type, Nyala jumping on the big guy, grabbing his ears, he jumped on her which I freaked out at that weight he was. Like 2 Denis the Menace. But did she ever stood her ground with him. So I brought her home... Few days later I get a phone call from the breeder who is the one I got Duke n Jake from. She said there was an error made by that lady who didn’t know Nyala was a bantam n not an EB. She wanted to take Nyala back n refund me. There was 2 Frenchie n one EB at the lady’s house but sold n one on standby. It was the standby that was the for sale puppy. Lady was confused from what the breeder said. After that issue, the breeder never left her pups there anymore. It was one of them friend of a friend thing. She doesn’t allow anyone visit her acreage as she got broken into once and the took back then her only blue Frenchie female which one had anywhere. Took years to have one. Now if someone wants a pup she brings them to her vet. Except for me. My breeder great friend is also a breeder who has cancer n my breeder was helping her out while she was going through chemo. That’s were the confusion was n I ended up keeping Nyala. The friend doesn’t breed bantams anymore as people have no clue what they are n harder to sell. Too bad as it’s a fantastic breed n again nowhere near issues like the EB... So that’s my baby brat’s story..
