Welcome ! from a neighbor ! (we live in Delaware!) and we will keep you in the loop with bulldog activities in New Jersey (There is a Bullypooloza, and Bullyfest each spring !)
My only cringe while reading your post was 'tri-color' there are breeders out there breeding for 'tri-color' as the main reason, and Not for health or betterment of the breed.
If you have any questions this is the place to ask we have some members in the Philly area, and there are atleast 2 bulldog 'meet ups' (Philly and South Jersey)
