    Tate says he needs a new playmate too I just waited til Brutus was a little older to get another because they are very needy as puppies and I'm pretty sure I would go crazy trying to potty train 2 lol.

    You know I thought doing two puppies at one time would be busy but oh man, oh man, oh man was I wrong, it's non-stop fun! Ok who am I kiddin', two puppies at one time is a handful to say the least but we're getting through the potty training and teething all at one time. Although they're Brothers from Another Mother (Wilson=Bulldog, Jake=American Staffordshire Terrier), they'll be as close to litter mates as they can be. Would I have like to have waited until Wilson was about 6 months or so, yes, but only because it would have more one-on-one time with Wilson. Jake came to us a bit earlier but he was meant to be with us and we knew that the moment we saw him.

    Wilson was 8 weeks when we got him at Jake was 20 weeks (a rescue dog).

    Now I can't wait until they're both about 2 years and I do a sneak attack on the hubby and convince him we need another bully .

    Wellllllll when I first saw this dog through the rescue's website I fell in love with him instantly. We passed the house inspection and then went to go meet the dog. First off, the dog we met was not the dog in the picture. He was described as 65 pounds and he was white and spotted like Brutus. This mystery dog was brown, maybe 50 pounds, peeing on everything, ignored Brutus and then would growl at him when he got too close to a toy. I was soooo upset. I had my heart set on that other dog and this was not him....I was literally crying the entire way home. I emailed and called to clarify that if they put that dog back up, please put up the correct picture so people like me arent heartbroken. I was talking to the woman that showed him to us and she had no idea who could have put up the wrong pictures and then asked if that was a problem. I wanted to be like ummmm yeah this is a problem, this isn't the dog I called about lol. I must say I am a bit nervous about going to meet any other dogs now. My fiance just keeps telling me that if we are meant to have another bully in the house it will happen on its own time..I sure hope! Sooo yeah, sorry for being the Debbie Downer of EBN today lol.

    @NJBullyMommy,

    I'm sorry it didn't work out, and that the bulldog was not the one you were expecting.
    Like your fiance says, when the time is right for you to get another bully, you will know it and it will happen!

    Aww.. You aren't the Debby Downer! Like your fiance said, the right one will come along when he or she is supposed to. I am sorry you were so disappointed! It is hard when you get your hopes up and it doesn't work out. I am surprised she asked if it was a problem. Just keep your chin up and keep looking around at the rescues. I bet another one will win your heart in no time.

    Just wanted to share with you where I am with all this...

    If everything goes as planned, I'm hoping to bring a new little guy or girl bully into my household come October. That gives me almost 5months or so to "prepare"...and Tate will be 9mos old by then. I'll definitely keep you all posted as things go along...

    We got our first EB in the of March. I've been begging my wife for over 5 years to get one and she finally said yes. Now she is in love with him and the words came out of her mouth "should we get another one"! Well Bubba is now 18 weeks and as soon as my wife said those words I went looking for Bonnie, we found her and she is currently 6 weeks. I will be picking her up at the end of this month. I hope Bubba and Bonnie get along great. We have 2 indoor cats also male and female, they will not be happy about this addition.
