    Default Rigg and I would like to say Hello!

    We are new to this site and wanted to introduce ourselves. My name is Mariah and my husbands name is Dylan. Dylan and I have been together for going on five years and have lived together for two, just recently we added Rigamortis (Big Rigg) to our home. Rigg is a white and brindle AKC registered English Bulldog puppy, right now he is currently six months old and a terror. We brought him home when he was six weeks old and realized he had a few area's of concern. When we took him to the vet they put of his vaccinations so he could be put on an antibiotic and a steroid for puppy shingles. Rigg was on the medication for a month and then was leaned off of it but the shingles came back again so Rigg got a long lasting anti biotic shot called Covenia which seems to have worked so far. He also was born with a dead right eye, his mirror behind the retina is cracked so he can see motions but is pretty much blind in it. An eye specialist has told us that sense it doesn't seem to bother him right now to let him grow and progress before we consider anything dramatic. And as if things couldn't get worse for my poor baby the breeder we purchased him from kept him on a grated floor for the first six weeks of his development which caused deformities in his bone formality in his front paws. Its been a rough six months but its all worth each day we have him!

    Well welcome to the site and I bet your baby is just too cute and can't wait to see pics of him. WOW sounds like your breeder is a puppy mill. Pups should never be let go that young and they should not have let them live on that grated floor. Poor baby boy. Hope his problems are just about over and he grows into a healthy boy.

    Hi Rigg, Mariah and Dylan WOW! You have had a rough start. I am so glad that you have found us here. I think we are going to have a lot to learn from each other. I am going to keep my comments about the breeder to myself. I am glad to hear that he is a normal 6 month old puppy terror which means he has normal things going on development wise. Can't wait to see some more pictures! Welcome! Feel free to ask a million questions!

    Rigg is too cute! He is also very lucky to have a great mom and dad . He has had a rough start but with your love and care he will be an amazing addition to your family.

    Oh and the breeder should be tar and feathered and put in a crate for 6 weeks grr.... See how they like it...

    Hey Rigg, Mariah, and Dylan, Welcome to EBN !!! This is a wonderful site, both in it's contents and concerned members. I have to Mirror Christies statement, Although Furious, I will keep my opinions to myself, and @Davidh is so right, he's one of a VERY FEW experts I would personally go to with a puppy problem, and I feel so sad for Riggs eye, I know it may not bother him, but it bothers me for him, I guess these guys and their quality of life is so poor< I want to give every one of them the most I can, they so deserve it with the love they give us in return, but you already know a lot about these children, yours being 6 months old, Being a Wholley Terror is a normal thang !! Like @Chumley, I can only guess how he got the name Rigamortis, although I find it Hilarious, I don't see any of these little guys laying around like they have rigamortis. He's such a handsome young man, and i can see the love he's bundled with, and the best part is they should come with a decal on their Tummy's that says, Personality Installed !! These guys are so wonderful, and Mariah, what your going through with Riggs, I hope is at its end, for both you and him, family alike. Please enjoy your stay, and I can't wait to follow your threads, I'll look foreword to Riggs progress in his future, please Enjoy.

    Wow it was truly nice hearing from all of you! Thankfully we are near the end with his health problems, what's crazy is Rigg was the strongest one while going through everything. He is such a good boy. Oh trust us we were furious; he played the good guy in the beginning and when we confronted him about the first problem he gave us 10% of our money back to help pay for vet bills and told us to stay in contact but by time we called back he was no where to reach. I just hope people learn from my situation that even if they have a few problems they are still perfect lovers. His name was his daddy's choice he wanted a strong original name, but Rigg is the sweetest almost doesn't match his name lol. Thank you all!

    So very sorry to hear your story but thrilled you & Hubby decided to keep Riggs.

    That 'lil bully is very lucky...as are y'all to have him. It's amazing how well dogs
    adapt to physical limitations, unlike us, they have no ego or self pity or fear to
    hold them back...they just accept it and go on...we could learn a lot from them.

    GOD bless y'all & Riggs with a long, happy & favored life together.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
