    Default New from Ohio, looking for Breeder Information!

    Hello everyone,

    Nice to meet you all. I am a young professional out of Cincinnati, Ohio who is in the early stages of preparing to get an English Bulldog. I love forums of all types so I figured why not for this too. I currently do not own any dogs, but did most of my life. My parents actually met in dog training classes as they both showed Shepard's, so believe me, I've experienced a lot of dogs. I also own a ferret and have a 55g freshwater cichlid tank. Basically, I have reached the point in my life where I am financially, emotionally, and professionally stable enough to do it right. I had looked into getting a pure bred Pit Bull a few years ago but decided I was not ready for the commitment and held off. Now I have fallen in love with English Bulldogs. I hope to gather as much information as possible.

    I am looking for breeder's preferably in my area (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois) who are reputable and hopefully come with personal recommendations. I know adopting is generally more pushed in these forums, I made a personal decision to not on this one. My parents have adopted quite a few times with...sometimes less than desirable results and I want my first to be as easy as possible in theory. Any suggestions on breeders in my area would be much appreciated. I plan to lurk for quite a while. Thanks!

    so glad you are going to Lurk! just jump in whenever you like! While it's true..we do support a lot of Rescues..we don't push a Rescue over buying the Bully of your choice! We just want to help you be successful in whatever you choose. Rescuing is not for everyone and while we soooo appreciate these special people..WE love all our Bully's! You will find so much great info here to get you prepared for the new pup in your life. While we aren't allowed to recommend certain breeders..anyone who knows of a good breeder in the area you are looking in..can send you a Private Message! Good Luck!

    How exciting to be a first time bully owner. I thought I had read up enough to know what I was in for but I was wrong. Wish I had known about this forum before I got my pups. But lucky you! This is the best place to be to learn about all things bulldog and there are a bunch of lovely and funny peeps here. Hang on as someone with more expertise will be on shortly. It's been a while since mine were puppies. Stick around and you'll learn so much and have fun doing it.

    @Fontanafox Who you calling funny?

    Trevcam welcome to EBN. The Bulldog Club of America has an excellent breeder referral program. If you go to their site you should be able to find someone in your area that is capable of referring you to a reputable breeder that has available puppies. Good luck.

    I hope your search for a puppy is short. And your life together is long. And that you share it with us through pics and stories of your bully's adventures.

    Welcome to EBN! As everyone already stated, we love all bullies but we certainly try hard to find home for the adoptables. Our forum is made up of bulldog lovers in general, from owners to rescue leaders to breeders- it is all about sharing, helping and caring. Sorry I am in the west and cannot help recommend a breeder but good luck and keep us posted on your search!

    Thanks all! Let me reiiterate, I do not have anything at all against rescues by any means, It's just been my experience on forums with different animals/breeds that they push rescue very hard and somewhat look down on breeders. Obviously I want to find a reputable breeder who is interested in the breed and has a love for the animals. Thanks to Texkota for the Bulldog Club of America referral. It seems like a great place to start and find what I am looking for. If anyone else has any suggestions, please do not hesitate to PM me. I'd love all that I can get!

    Gracie11 is in Iowa, not Ohio,(or O Ho Ho as I so affectionately call it)

    Anyway to EBN. Glad you joined, you won't find another site that is more informative on English Bulldogs. One of our mods, @kazzy220, lives in Ohio and is also involved with a rescue there. She will be familiar with local breeders as well. I think you can get a list of breeders from the AKC website as well but not positive. Thanx again for joining and I hope you have fun and learn a lot here at EBN.

    EBN is not just another forum as you will soon find out. You won't find that sort of prejudice here..... besides, Lisa, David, Sherry, and a few others would kick our behinds if breeders were looked down on. LOL

    I have seen this happen on other forums and on facebook. Someone posts a puppy question and they get hammered for getting a puppy! We are all about helping bulldog owners in need. If that puppy doesn't get the help they need they will probably end up at a shelter. It's a Shame.
