Welcome! As for starting with pup or older bully... Depends on what you are ready for. When hubby and I decided to finally get our baby we called a few breeders off the bca list and 1 had puppies and one had a 9 month old who she was thinking of showing but had too much on her plate at the time. We chose the 9 month old cuz he was house trained etc already. Dont get me wrong he still was a puppy at heart at that age but Cutty had been past that puppy biting and crazy stage. Still chewed no many things in the house, couches, baseboards, pillows, dog beds etc but probably would have been a MUCH bigger challenge had he been itty bitty. We got Miila at 1 year old also so I still have that need for a baby bully someday but nothing wrong with getting them older at all. Certainly dont love them any less and I think when you get them at an older age they tend to love you more if they had a rough background cuz they know how good they have it. The reward is greater in that case. There are SO many in rescue that need homes, if you are thinking of an older one I would look thru your local rescue and see what they have available to start.
