    CKC as in the Canadian Kennal Club or Continental Kennel Club? I'm going to guess the continental kennel club since your breeder is in the U.S.
    You should ask why they chose that as opposed to AKC.

    Wellie, our bullie that was re-homed to us came with ACA papers (American Canine Association). It's not a real club as far as I'm concerned and the only
    reason it was used is because it's cheap, and his "breeder" runs a puppy mill in the mid west.

    These days, I would carefully screen even breeders that use AKC (after all of Blue's issues, I'd insist on a breeder who health tests), but those that use any other organization..well- I'd run the other way. There's never, ever, ever,
    ever, a good reason for a purebred dog to be registered with anyone other than AKC in the U.S.

    In the end, a dog is a dog, it's not the papers it comes with. I don't love Wellie any less than Blue, he's my little man and I adore him. But I guess I do equate AKC with quality (even though I shouldn't) because they're the only legitimate club in the U.S for purebred dogs.

    In the end, a bulldog with a perfect pedigree can, and most likely will, have at least some health problems. So regardless of your choice, just be prepared for that.

    I posted in my other thread, but I guess I'll copy here, as well... Of course, when we went to see the puppies... We came home with one ))
    Have you seen not photogenic bulldog? Well, ours sure is! She is so cute but looks like an old grumpy bulldog on the photos ) and I am a photographer, so it's embarrassing!

    Here are couple of iPhone photos

    Her name is Masyanya (Masya, Manya for short), and I am sure only Russians can pronounce it lol

    So, she thinks she is a lap dog, every time somebody sits on the floor - she climbs up )



    we planned on taking another girl... But she looked so scared, tried to hide from us... And we have a very loud family, so we didn't risk getting a dog that would be stressed from all the running and yelling...

    Masyanya is so cute and loving, she is sleeping by me as I write this...

    I am not sure she'll grow up to be the perfect bulldog, but if she stays this loving and nice - I don't really care...



    She is holding her ears back a lot... Is she supposed to do that?
