    Default Hello from San Francisco

    Hi There!
    Just wanted to introduce myself and my babies Leo and Lola to everyone. Leo, my red brindle boy, is 7.5 months old and Lola, my pi-bald girl, is almost 9 months old. We have always had dogs but these are our first bulldogs.

    We got Lola at 13 weeks old. She turned out to have so many allergies that we couldn't even bring her outside let alone to the dog park (grass, weeds, pollen, dust, allergies). We felt so bad for her and her lack of doggie friends that we got Leo to be her companion when she was 6 months old. They love each other and play all the time. Lola has recently had allergy testing and is now on desensitization therapy for her allergies and both dogs are now visiting dog parks a couple times a week to socialize.

    Anyone else notice that non-brachycephalic breeds tend to "shun" bulldogs? My dogs can always find a friend in boston terriers, frenchies, and other flat faced dogs but most other breeds tend to ignore them. My vet seems to think that their weird grunting sounds tend to confuse other dogs who don't know what to make of them.

    Anyway, nice to be here and thanks for having me!

    Hello to you I'm in marin county I have heard about something called chesting for a trainer along time ago.
    other dogs with a longer snout don't get that close on frist meeting, and it is a dominant move.
    I don't know about you but when you get on the ground at dog hight our bullys do look father big
    hope to meet you soon at the beach! Victoria and Torrin

    to the site. I can't say that any breed we have run in to with Harlea has shunned her. Normally they are come to see what the heck is up with her.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I've heard people say that too that other dog breeds are intimidated by all of the snorting and loud breathing. Leo and Lola are so cute!! from So Cal! Happy you found us.

    to EBN!!! Your babies are adorable… I have taken both my boxers & bullies to doggie parks, and funny thing they seem to gravitate to other brach breeds. I have heard that it's because of the snorting, breathing noises that can sometimes scare other dogs but that seems kinds crazy to me… LOL

    Welcome to the site and your pups are beautiful. I have noticed a few dogs with normal snoots do kind of shun the bullies. We had a Beagle who loved other dogs, but she for the longest time did not want anything to do with the bullies when we first got them.

    YOur babies are beutiful.... and yes, as others have said, Bulldogs tend to be 'different' and some other breeds will be either hesitant or ignore all together.

    Thanks for the welcomes everybody! I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that bullies tend to get the cold shoulder from snouty doggies. The "chesting" theory certainly makes sense now that I think about it. Its kids sad seeing your pup get ignored at the dog park. Almost as bad as seeing your kid not being included on the playground. lol
