Welcome! And thank you for your service to our wonderful country! Your new Bully baby is just precious! I bet you can't wait to get home, for so many reasons, but the new puppy is just that much more to look forward to. I was new to this breed and this site back in July. You have found the absolute BEST Bully site there is. I joined right after I brought Gertie home, and thank goodness I did! I have learned soooo much here! I've had a number of other breeds in my 55 years, and there's nothing like a Bully. They are stubborn, but so sweet and personable, you just can't ever stay mad at them! I think the most important thing to do with a new puppy is get him on some good quality food. Bullies tend toward allergies and skin issues, so I find I am feeding my girls far differently than I've fed any other dogs I've ever had. I add things like salmon oil, plain yogart, and canned pumpkin to their meals, they eat lots of fruits and veggies. So far it's paying off. My two girls are 8 months old and they are both allergy free and very healthy, happy Bullies. I feed Nature's Variety Prairie. They like it and it's readily available in my area. There are a lot of members who feed grain-free, but so far my girls haven't had any issues with grains so I haven't had to go that direction. Can't wait to see future pics of you and your new Bully! So glad you found our group!
