    Default Newbie!

    Hi everyone I'm Tony and I'm getting my first bulldog pup next Saturday. We currently have a pug so I'm somewhat familiar with Brachycephalic breed issues etc. but I can't help it they warm my heart and makes me laugh. We're looking so forward to getting "Abby" next Sat. Any advice on food or harness vs collar etc. would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the site. A month ago I was in the same position as you are today counting down the days until I was able to hold my Harlea for the first time. This week is going to seem like Saturday is never going to get here and drive you nuts. Take this time now to read up on foods, allergies and general health and care for Abby as there is a lot of information that needs to be processed so you are ready for your 4 legged butterball of love.

    Hi and welcome to you and Abby. You will love this site, there are a lot of great people to give advice and share information, and there are many Forums that you can read through to find out about dogfood ratings, products for your bully, health and nutrition and so much more. I've learned so much on here. For your puppy's food, you want to feed her a high quality puppy food, and also a food with a 4 or higher star rating. Puppies need the extra calories, vitamins and minerals found in puppy food for their rapid growth and development. You can switch to an adult formula when she is 6 or 7 months. A lot of people on here feed their bullies Fromms brand of food, they have a Fromms Puppy Gold Formula. Go on the nutrition forum and read the ratings on dog foods. As for leashes, most people use a harness for their EB.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
