    Default Getting female littermates, are we crazy?

    Hi, I'm new here, but have been lurking for a little while. My beloved bully, Madison, of 11.5 years passed away last August. She was my first baby and I still miss her everyday, I always will. She taught me so much about life and how to be a mom actually. I always want/need to have a bully in my life (I'm sure you all understand this) and my husband and I have decided to get two girls this time. We have picked them out (MacKenzie who seems to be pretty easy going so far and Rooney who is going to be trouble, even the breeder says this, in the most endearing way of course but she is always getting into stuff already) and they come home in 3 weeks. So the night after we left the deposit, I googled raising littermates and was stunned by what I found. Are we crazy? Wait for the next sentence to answer that. We also have a baby girl (human) that just turned 6 months. So now...are we crazy? Well, whether you answer yes or no, we're doing it So I would LOVE any suggestions, tips, tricks, anything to help us navigate babies and bullies and bully female littermates...let the adventure begin!

    Congratulations on your decision - i must say it be tough-bullies are not quick learners-and times 2 -it will hard + your baby -i think if you all pull in together as a family everything should be easier to manage
    Good luck and keep us updated ;-)

    You are young and have plenty of energy. It will be a hectic life, but once you figure out a routine, it will work out! In someways, it is easier to raise two pups at a time, because they have each other to play with. Best of Luck to your "active" family. Hubby will have to pitch in and help.too

    Two or more is always better than one, I always say. It will be hard, especially with the 6 month old. But put up baby gates to keep the pups out of areas you do not want them in, like the babies room and play area. This way the bullies will not have the opportunity to swallow a toy or something else that might become an obstruction.

    Congratulations!! We raised one at a time; got Amber and then a year later went back for Ruby plus I have a one year old grand-daughter.......good times are had by all in my house. WOOHOO! You are going to have a rock and rolling household but it can be managed with a little patience and everyone pitching in. Good luck and you have been given great advice about baby gates; they are a must have item!! We have them on all the bedroom door frames and in the hallway get to keep the bullies safe from things they aren't suppose to get into. Again, good luck and let the games begin!!!

    Thank you everyone for the advice and the support. We definitely needed to hear someone say "go for it." Maybe you just have to be a "bully addict" to get it. I will keep you updated and post pics...I'm sure we'll have lots of super fun pics. Here are the girls at 4 weeks.

    Yay Congratulations!!! They are beautiful girls!!!!!

    My best advice is ... from day 1 the second they get home, set very clear Rules, Boundaries & Limitations and be 100% Consistent!!! have a potty schedule that is set in stone to make potty training them easy on you and with the rules, boundaries & limitations they will learn right away what is expected of them and they will be happy and well balanced family members

    I'll be a new bully mama starting this Friday, my boyfriend and I will be bringing a little girl River home, she just turned 10 weeks yesterday. It seems from all the research I've done that this breed is a lot to handle but well worth it! Sounds like double the love, double the entertainment, double the fun for you! Or TRIPLE rather, what an exciting adventure. Best of luck! xx
