    Default A Newbie minus a Bully

    Well I've been browsing for the last few days. There were a few threads that I though I could contribute to so I thought I should register. I don't currently own a EBD but the plan is to have one sometime this year. I am new to the breed so I'm doing my research and this site has helped tremendously. I'm not necessarily new to dogs though. As a child I was owed by a pitbull, doberman and bouvier but as an adult I was owned by cocker spaniels and most recently a yorkie. So an EBD will be somewhat new territory.

    We've chosen a breeder already and our puppy won't be ready until August since the litter is still in it's planning stages. We've built a great relationship thus far with our breeder and hope that our new addition will be just as great.

    We live in Atlanta, (my daughter and I) and look forward to chatting with you guys.

    Bravo on doing your research before getting your baby. I hope when you do he/she is everything you hope for. Most of us around here have found that to be true.

    Welcome, I did the same thing and this group is very helpful and knowledgeable. I'm anxious for you because the Bullies are definately different from other breeds but well worth the extra effort. Remember we love picts!

    I truly admire families like you that don't jump into it. It took me a long time to learn that lesson myself over the years! Welcome to EBN!

    Love when research is done prior to the commitment.... Bulldogs are a very different world -- they are beyond wonderful but come with a great deal of maintenance; however, it will all be soooooooo worth it.

    Bestest snugglers in the world.
