    Hello and welcome to EBN.... as others have said, no rawhide or bully sticks... very dangerous. Use antlers, marrow bones or nylabones all are safe and very enjoyable.
    He most likely vomited due to it being too much on his tummy.... as for the name, as Vic stated.... dogs live in the moment and easily adjust to new names

    The redness on his face could be due to the food he eating but I don't know enough about the foods to be able to explain really what signs to look for as far as not agreeing with him. My girl had a really red face after I brought her home and I changed her over to a different food. I have her on a food now that totally agrees with her and the redness has almost gone away. I use to deal with the red eyes and itching as well and that to has gone away. There are a lot of people on this site that will be able to step in an help you with your questions once they read your post. You came to a great site and you will learn tons about your EBD.

    Thanks everyone! He has been a great dog so far besides a couple hiccups. To be expected in a new home with new faces. His redness I have been concerned with as well, gonna switch diet since he is almost outta food and see if it helps at all.

    Welcome to EBN...so glad you joined us...there is great information here so check out the different
    articles. Have you had a bully before or researched much on them? I, too, am concerned about his
    face redness, most likely an allergy or sensitivity to either food or environmental causes. Most bullies
    need a GRAIN FREE food and a SINGLE source of protein. A great quality food may cost more BUT it
    is concentrated so takes less quantity to feed, they poop less out because they digest more instead of
    it just passing thru them. You save on Vet bills because they stay healthy! Please check out the list of
    best rated foods here, many Bullies do great on Fromm Beef Fritta, can be ordered thru the link here
    to PetsFlow but there are others too. Many bullies are allergic to Pork, Chicken & sometimes Turkey.

    Ask anything and good luck!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    to EBN! Nismo is gorgeous and while it's sad that the previous owner gave him up it's good to know he was looking out for the best interest of his bully. By all means change his name and do it now. Every time you say his new name pet him and touch him and when he makes eye contact with you say it then too.

    Stay away from the rawhide!!! If you have any please please throw them out. Not only are they dangerous for regular dogs, they're more dangerous for bullies due to their mouth structure. I fished many out of my pitty's mouth as he'd get a piece chewed off and then it would get stuck like cement to the top of his mouth partially down his throat. Also, stay away from Bully Sticks. They're just as bad.

    He's just gorgeous!!

    I am so late in welcoming you! As everyone said..names don't matter to them..he will adapt easily! My hubby is famous for bringing home stray dawgs and they have all been well on in years. We've never known their names and just picked ones that fit..all did fine!

    As far as the food..don't wait until you run all the way out to start switching. You need to do a slow transition otherwise he will have trouble with his tummy and his Do it over 10-14 days..gradually increasing the new while decreasing the old. And I would stay away from any food with chicken as the protein..lots of Bully's have problems with chicken. Good Luck and so happy you found Nismo...and us!
