    to EBN! Lucy looks like a sweetheart. You can teach them not to use those little daggers on you every 5 seconds but it take patience..... she'll be over it in about 2 years... LOL... Just kidding but it does take time and its quite exasperating... those little daggers HURT. I use PhotoBucket for photo storage and then transfer the link to my posts here. That works best for me. Anyway, ask all the questions you want,,, we really are here to help. Thanx for joining and jump right in.

    aw i think she is just wonderful. sarah does not have much of a nose rope either so i think bullies come in all sizes and shapes. there is a behavioral and training part of the forum you can post on for the nipping and biting.

    Each time she bites you, yelp as if you were a puppy, very dramatic. She does not want to hurt you, she is teething and playing. This reaction in puppy language means "ouch that hurts I have had enough"

    Welcome! She is 12 weeks so her body has grown a lot in the past month. The pics you see on the net are usually 6-8 week old pups who have grown extra skin in preparation for their growth spurt. Over the next few months she will continue to grow taller and sometimes you may even wonder if she is a boxer! Lol

    Bulldogs grow up first. Then they grow sideways and the wrinkles falling to place wherever they may be. You won't see her start to broaden out until she is around eight months old. Some bulldogs have more wrinkles than others. My Tidus never had a nose rope until he was three years old! Lol

    Welcome to EBN, I think she's perfect!

    to EBN she is a very sweet little girl. Like everyone else said give her time to grow and take lots of pictures, it's always fun going back and looking at the old ones and you will realize how much they change over the course of a year. Our Bacon just turned one and his first year was very trying at times, they will push you to see what they can get away with so be strong and remember you are the alpha in the house.

    @Texas Carol is right: she will change in a thousand ways on the road to adulthood. My Bo is like your pup -- long face with less of a nose rope. Meanwhile, his "sister" has so much nose rope it's a JOB to get under there are clean everything sparkling shiny.

    Your pup is beautiful.

    The "Mouthy" pup is a familiar post here at EBN. I think it's true with most puppies of any breed. All you can do is provide limitations (disagree with the behavior - redirect to an approved chew toy) and provide lots of exercise because a good pup is a tired pup. Remember teething is hard on the wee ones (human and canine alike) and look for things you can give her to make it more tolerable; frozen Kongs or other treats that might soothe that discomfort.

    My Bea was a CHOMPIE THING. Oh man. I know how you feel.

    Welcome! My Stiggy used to have a face like hers. Now he's very wrinkly and he's still growing more even at almost 3 years of age.

    Welcome to the site, your little Lucy is adorable!

    My Abby has a little bit longer snout, so her wrinkles and nose rope are not as defined, But I think she is a beauty. It doesn't take away from her bullitude at all. Besides she is much easier to keep clean!

    I can't wait to see Lucy as she grows up.

    Always with me
