    Default Hi there from El Paso TX

    My name is Ana and 2 months ago I adopted two beautiful english bulldog puppies, they are 16 weeks old now and getting big. My male is about 26 lbs and female about 22 lbs.. Do you think their weights are ok? I have been feeding them raw and they really like it, they sure can eat though.. little piggies! My female is a traditional colored bulldog, the male turned out to be a chocolate dog, or dudley as some call it, even though my intention was never the show ring, I was very surprised when he arrived. Not sure why the breeder never mentioned it to me. he is so beautiful, just stunning at least in my eyes, I got weekly pictures from her, but very tiny cell phone kind, and looking back it is impossible to tell the coloring of his leather. Anyways, I love him too much, just as I do my female. ALDO is very calm and sweet, loving in a quiet sort of way, and just stares at me with those green eyes and melts my heart. KATARA is the playful active kind, but also the one to cuddle next to me when we nap.. they are both great with the kids and they love them, KATARA right now does not know her strength and does knock my 24 month old over all the time. I tell her "NO" but she gets all excited when she sees my baby and she can't help it. My daughter cries but I bring her to me, sit her with me and handle Katara, calm her down and let her pet her. My older daughter that's 5 gets knocked down once in awhile too.. Any suggestions to help her calm down? I am thrilled with my pups and I think they are a great addition to the family. They are crate trained and also nap with me during the day (since I work nights). I am wanting to learn everything about this breed and am considering breeding Katara to a healthy, certified stud in the future; Aldo is getting fixed d/t his coloring problems. I have more than a year to think about this, but more than likely I will get another puppy/dog to be Katara's boyfriend. Not sure though.. It's a big decision.. I am so glad I found this group.. Is anybody from EL Paso? I would love to have a meet up sometime,

    And here are my lovely dogs, first when they arrived as 8 week olds with Alana and Alexia in their halloween costume




    And just a couple days ago.. so sweet and BIG already

    Im not sure... I'm fairly new here also. i know they have a monthly photo contest and I think pictures are taken from there to make up a calendar.

    Others will chime in soon and let us know exactly how that goes....

    Welcome ..





    PD: I was just kidding about the scale. I dont tell her that at all. It just made my post read nicer ...

    Hello Ana,and welcome to the site. we are glad to have you here. Let me say your little bullies and skin kids are just precious. As far as your bully knocking the kids down, that's just a bully thing, they are little bulldozers and some times play rough. If they do get a little rough just stop the play and redirect their attention to a nylabone chew toy. If you have not read it yet here is an excellent article to read about bringing home a new puppy. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...-Bulldog-Puppy Just remember no rawhide chew toys or anything they can chew and break off into small pieces that can get lodged in their throats. You mentioned breeding your female, here is another article you need to read before breeding her. Breeding bullies is a lot different from any other dog, and very expensive to do it right. Plus you take the chance of loosing your female and maybe all pups as well. You need an excellent bully vet as well. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...hat-takes-291/

    Thanks for the pics and we will be looking forward in seeing more pics of your beautiful bullies.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    yes Davidh, I had read that article before, that's why I'm still thinking about it. I would love to have that experience of breeding her once, responsibly though with a good stud that will produce quality puppies.. commit my time to take good care of them and find them the best homes possible, even if it means I will end up keeping them if I can't. I wouldn't just jump into it, it's only a thought at this time. I read you are a dog show judge; what do u think about my dog Aldo and him being chocolate and the breeder selling him without acknowledging this? I cannot lie and say I am upset about it; like I said before I couldn't love him more, and maybe if I had known I wouldn't have bought him, so maybe this is how it was meant to be. I love the breed; they are truly something special. Thank you for posting!

    @acarabias I am not a dog show judge, the title under our names is one generated by the site as we gain points. The more you post the more point you get, and your title changes. I am a bully breeder though, and the breeder you bought your bully from should have told you this. Did they show you pics before you bought him? He is a beauty, and if you are not going to show him, then it does not matter. I just would not stud him out. Both your babies are just too cute.

    lol!! I'm too new, I guess it's just too obvious!! Yes, she sent me pictures every week, but they were tiny quality pictures and since the nose was mostly pink I couldn't tell. Even now, looking back I can't see it in the pictures. I do think he is adorable too! I just worry a bit that his health will be affected somehow by this, but he is my cuddle bug and wouldn't change him now that I know him. But I still am a bit upset at the lack of honesty and openness.. I am going to try to create an album of my human and paw babies since I am just too proud

    @acarabias I think an album is a great idea, and you can share pics of them with us too. If you haven't heard yet we love pics here.

    Your family is Beautiful!


    I have to admit I can't see anything wrong with Aldo's color. I would see a dark Red/white....why is Chocolate a problem for bullies? Guess it's a good thing I'm happy just being a spoiled bully owner and have no desire to ever consider breeding.


    Oh and the user title thing is a per post thing except for a few of us. You will only see two of us that are HRH's minions.

    I am with @LariP, I can't see anything wrong with his color either????? I think he is so HANDSOME and unique looking, I could just sit and stare in his beautiful eyes!! He is perfect in my book!! And I love your Halloween picture, how beautiful of all your kids, and what a great idea. Welcome to the site and please share lots of pictures we are fanatics on here.

    Oh and P.S., I am NOT a BullyWood Movie Star as my title says either..., as @Davidh said, you earn a title the more you post, so post away!!
