    If by "greedy" you mean he eats all his food really fast, I would say that's very normal. I've had four Bulldogs thru the years and mine have all eaten like that. They also have run over to my other dogs' bowls to gobble up their food the second they are through eating. I have never been able to stop any of my bullies from doing that, so I always feed them in a separate place from the other dogs. I'm still feeding Winnie in her crate. So, greedy is normal at my house!

    Tyson is 8 yrs old & greedy as hell, and he has always devoured his food the second I put it down. I think bullies are greedy period. With everything, toys, food, owners. LOL I think its completely normal, as long as he's not vomiting afterwards from eating too fast! Then I would do a slow feeder bowl

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Mine belong to the "greedy eaters" club too! I place one of those slow-feed-balls into their food bowls which slightly helps them slow down on the gobbling.

    yes they go through food like it is their last meal and they are scheduled to be executed next. That is A OK. We want our dogs to have very good appetite not a picky one. As one member said, so long as he is not throwing up, then all is good.
