    Super common stuff with bulldogs but a few things:

    First, he's YOUNG so still a puppy. And bulldogs stay puppies for a LONG time, which may not be good with your son because he'll be spunky!

    Second, he could still develop other health problems.

    Also, they make a good point about the food. It's something to think about and something I really didn't know before I got into bulldogs. My parents always just bought dog food at the grocery store. We fed our family dog Kibbles and Bits. Fast forward to now and we spend $70 a bag on California Naturals Kangaroo and Red Lentil because our bulldog's allergies are so bad. You will see COUNTLESS threads about what to feed them!

    Finally, I would ask if his eye will require medication. Some cherry eye repairs require a lifetime of eye drops to keep the eye properly moist.

    That said, it's a great find in that it's a young dog for a very reasonable adoption fee. Plus in Chandler. I think it's worth it to ask about him at least!

    Thanks for the tips. I just heard back from them and they said that Alvin is way too interested in cats and probably wouldn't make a good match for us.

    I hate when they say that stuff...honestly, ALL of my bulldogs have been interested in cats. But cats are fast and can jump, and bulldogs can't! Plus all of mine were good buddies after they warmed up! I think smart introductions are the key but eh, keep looking!

    I bet your kitty would rule the roost! When Truman was a puppy, we had a 14 year old male orange tabby and a newly acquired 10 year old female orange tabby...we were a retirement home for orange cats! Anyway, I was so worried that he'd be to rambunctious and they'd hide. Well the male did for a bit but our female, who is still with us, gave Truman a few well placed, claw-free, whacks every time he stepped out of line and boy, he learned fast about who was boss.

    It was the same with our first bulldog, Bentley. We had a little 8 pound gray tabby who literally backed Bentley up into a corner so he could check out the dog's food bowl.

    Bulldogs are so funny. They're big and strong but just like big toddlers!

    Now my Linus, who was 80 lbs of love, he liked to play with the cats. At first it scared me but I'm not sure I lived until I saw an 80 lbs dog playing with a 6 lb cat.

    I'm rambling...many fond memories of our animals together. I've had to pare down since we have two little kids now so we just have one dog and one cat.
