    Default Brand New from Saskatchewan Canada!!

    Hi There!

    I just wanted to introduce myself a little bit!

    My name is Christine, I am the mom to 2 girls (8yrs and 10 yrs), 3 dog fur babies, 2 cat fur babies, and 2 horses (boarded, we don't have an acreage).

    About 6 months ago, I adopted a 10 year old Rottweiler from a local SPCA (about an hour from me), and he is amazing. I added that SPCA on Facebook, and looked through the dogs posted as found or for adoption, and gave updates on Taz our Rotty. One day they posted 2 dogs that were "found". One of which looked like a Bulldog/Boxer from the picture, and I thought she was pretty cute. I asked the manager of the SPCA to let me know if she wasn't claimed. She got back to me later that day. It turns out that the person who "found" the 2 dogs was actually the owner, and she didn't have the nerve to say she wanted to rehome them (thank goodness for small towns). I went to go meet her the next day! Imagine when I got there, and met a full English Bulldog!! Very affectionate, good with kids, cats and other dogs, not dominant at all, about 1 year old....I adopted her. Her name when we got her was Frenchie (wait...what? She's an ENGLISH Bulldog), thankfully she didn't know her name. She was in very good condition, but didn't know her name, or any commands at all. I have had her for about a month, and taught her to sit, to lay down, and to shake a paw, and she knows her name.

    She is a total cuddle bug, but has been getting a bit over-hyper lately, so it's time to work on some new tricks. She will be going into agility this month. While I was at the vet's to get meds for my Rotty, one of the vets stopped and patted Tia, and said she was the nicest Bulldog he had seen, in temperment and in body condition! Made my day!

    I joined here because I adopted this girl while knowing NOTHING about the breed (it all happened VERY quickly). I knew that she made me smile and laugh right away, and that was that. I figured, here maybe I could learn more about them, and about food, training, etc!

    That's all I have right now. My Rotty has been really sick (like knocking on death's door) for 2 weeks. He is recovering now, and I should be able to get some NICE pictures of Tia I hope!

    to EBN!! What a beautiful girl Tia is.... love the name!

    At 1 yr old... she is coming into the teenage years and also getting comfortable in her new surroundings/home - so more of her personality is coming out and she is looking to push the limits. Agility is great if she has the energy - most Bulldogs do not, but i have seen in person, a Bulldog that was great at it, and it was the only time he would run

    This easy training technique will totally help with her - http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...ning-technique

    Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings

    Hi Christine, and welcome to EBN. Thank you so much for rescuing sweet Tia. You are awesome. I'll never understand how people can just abandon their babies. You will absolutely love this breed, they are so loyal affectionate, and comical. My guys make me laugh all the time. You'll love this site as well. Lots of great Information, and lots of great members who are always willing to help with questions, advice, and experiences. I'm looking forward to seeing more of you and your babies on here, and please share your pictures.

    Thanks everyone!

    I am excited to learn more about the breed, and to meet other bully lovers. My husband calls her "fugly", and she is getting a bit rambuncious these days, but when she is calm and cuddly, I think he secretly likes her. I think agility will be great for her, she's a pretty energetic girl. My daughter will be taking our border collie cross too, and my best friend will be bringing one of her mini aussies (between me and my daughter and my 2 friends, we will occupy half the agility class). Registration is in 5 days!
