I'm so sorry, Tina, I understand your feelings and definitely agree,
bulldogs can be scary and more so, if you don't know them well and
even more so, if you don't know their background! It'll be fine, you
to slow down and let all calm down, settle down and find their places
in the family dynamic, it's not been very long and there's plenty of
time for love, trust & bonding to happen and it will
It sounds like neither of you have formed trust FIRST before moving
right into a relationship, I am the Queen of rushing things and I also,
made this mistake with my 1st bully, Brutus, that I adopted. Bonded
right away (mutually) and he was very sweet with great manners.
But....he'd been very neglected, mostly caged, wasn't potty trained (I
think shamed, screamed at & abused for this) wasn't played with, no
toys, really had just been 'the forgotten bully in the corner in his cage'
and just passed on & on & on, all to apparently, very busy people.
Including the nurse I got him from (she got him off craigslist), why do
people do this?!!
So, of course, I was going to 'save' Brutus & 'fix' him, certainly not why
or what I intended but realized later, had happened.
Please tell us more, how old is he (and your other bully's age), neutered
(other bully?), do you have kids, other pets, etc
Then I'll tell you what happened to me & Brutus
