    Default Im a new english bulldog owner

    hello everyone, we recently adopted a new member to our family, his name is philly he came from resscue facility in miami fl. He is my first english bulldog, we used to have a dalmatian back home. He is very quiet always asleep, i think he's a little stress out, philly is very close to his rescuers, still looking at the door, we went to some short walks, he has a limp so i want the vet to check it out first. hopefully philly will adjust soon to our family.-philly-jpg

    Philly is a very handsome fella. Bulldogs are as a rule generally quiet and reserve, needing little exercise. some may sleep 20 hours a day. They don't do well in heat or long walks. Stainless steel dishes only and a chicken free, grain free diet is best. The folds and tail areas must be kept dry everyday. There is no other breed like them. On the home page you will find so many do's and don'ts. So much to learn. Don't be alarmed just read up and you will have a much better idea of how to care for your new family member. And welcome to EBN you have come to the right place.

    Welcome to EBN, you will get lots of help and support as I have...I am new here
    and own my 1st bully and he is an older adoptee, not a rescue and so has less
    issues but he has had 3 previous owners, some of that time has been excessively
    crated, his teeth worn down prematurely from chewing on wire kennel. At 4? y/o,
    he didn't know how to play and wouldn't have anything to do w/chew bones or toys.
    We had a few accidents in the house but on a schedule now, he's been here 2 months
    and is so loving and eager for love, he's pure JOY!

    Hang in there w/Philly, no matter the issues, be patient, consistent & let him know
    WHAT is expected of him, love on him & praise lavishly and he will be loyal and love
    you like no other pet you've ever had...English Bulldogs are the best!

    Congratulations! He is very handsome and GOD will bless you for opening up your
    heart & home for him, you are a wonderful person and I wish many great years for
    you & Philly to enjoy each other. Texas Carol & Mr Brutie
    is


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Welcome to EBN!

    Give him time to adjust, soon he will recognize you as his family.

    He's certainly a doll baby!
    If you canít adopt Ė foster.
    If you canít foster Ė sponsor.
    If you canít sponsor Ė volunteer.
    If you canít volunteer Ė donate.
    If you canít donate Ė educate, network, and crosspost.
    EVERYONE can do something large or small, to help save a life.

    Hello -- welcome to EBN and the wonderful world of bulldogs. Give Philly some time, take him on short walks , maybe just down the street and back.... he will come to love you as much as you love in him in no time. ask the rescue workers if they know about the limp and you can give him joint supplements to help till you get the vet to check him out.


    THANK YOU SO MUCH for saving this handsome boy and giving him a new fur-ever home
