    Default Hi...new here and first time bulldog owner!

    Hello Everyone,
    First time owner of a bulldog and I am sure I will have plenty of questions. I have run a boxer rescue for 12 years, but have always wanted a bulldog.
    They are so different then boxers!!! I have one question to start with before I bombard with my other ones...I am used to the boxer"wiggle" to show me when my dogs are happy and excited. Ernie(14 weeks) has nothing. His tail is that tiny corkscrew so it does not move...but there is no wiggle...nothing. I cannot tell when he is excited, happy, ....his body is pretty expressionless. Do they grow into a wiggle of some sort? So glad I found this board!

    You will have a wiggly butt, almost guaranteed, it may take some time. One of mine it took almost a year, but she's got one on her, I'll tell ya, especially when I come home, they all pull out a huge wiggle then.

    We didn't see a wiggle with Mabel after we adopted her, but see it pretty regularly now. It will come!

    Welcome! You will definitely start to see it, that badonkadonk will be able to knock things over soon. I just rescued Kiah a couple weeks ago, she is just over 2, she didn't jiggle until after the first week. You're gonna love it
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...

    Ooooh you'll see it! Tonka can barely wiggle his little corkscrew tail but he had been known to completely fall over wiggling his entire butt because he is just SO excited to be at daycare! Lol
