    Like an infant they can feel your stress and frustration and will act accordingly so its really important to be calm and let him come to you. And thank you for giving a beautiful fur baby a home. Hugs and prayers and we are all usually hanging around here some where private messages come straight to my phone and I'm sure all of us who use tapatalk are the same Congratulations your adventures begin.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Ok. First things first. By the power vested in me by the state of New York and and the Jack Webb fan club I say welcome to forum. It's a one stop shop for all your bulldog question, concerns and even a good laugh and cry from time to time.
    Ok. Enough vaudeville.
    If I was you I would bring the little guy to a vet straight away if you haven't already. Not for the heavy breathing. That can be common for bullies under stress (like the kind you get changing homes and parents) and can be normal for bullies period. That being said..... You always want to get your new friend checked out ASAP. It's just good business. Bully's got/get issues and the sooner you know what you got, the sooner you can correct it. Im sure your boy is just fine as far as his breathing.
    Good luck and welcome aboard.

    If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

    Hi Rosalie and welcome to EBN. You have already gotten lots of great advice and comments. I agree it is probably stress from his new surroundings, and adjusting to a new family. Bulldogs are very sensitive and any changes in their routine, surroundings, or food can cause them stress. Just keep an eye on him, and he should settle down. Please keep us posted on how he's doing, and share your pictures of him.
