    Welcome!
    How do your parents feel about this?

    You are in the right place to learn lots about the breed! Training tips, common health issues, what to feed, etc. are all over the forum. Ask any questions you come up with.

    Hi! Welcome to EBN! It is great that you are thinking about getting a bulldog and that you are doing research before actually getting one. They are a lot of work and tend to be high-maintenance, but are incredibly loving. They tend to need a lot of attention so you want to make sure that you or your family have lots of time to spend with them.

    This site is full of lots of bulldog owners with tons of experience. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions at all!
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    I'm a new Bulldog owner, but I have owned other breeds of dogs. Bulldogs are completely different than any other breed. They often have allergies which can lead to skin problems and tummy trouble. They require grain free food which is more expensive than dog food you find in the grocery store. They also cannot be kept outside, especially in the heat. They also tend to have breathing difficulties.

    I'm not trying to convince you not to get a Bulldog. I believe the more you know about Bulldogs, the better owner you can be.

    I have a 22 year old daughter who used to think a Bulldog was her "dream dog." Once I got my first Bulldog, she changed her mind because she realized how expensive they can be, and they snore!

    @big b...Hello!...Welcome to EBN and sincere condolences on the loss
    of your cat.

    Reading your posts on wanting a bulldog, don't blame you at all, they
    are fabulous! All the members have given you great advice on why it's
    best to wait until you have the time to spend with one. My 1st adoptee,
    Brutus, had been in several homes before mine, none of them had any
    time for him so he had a lot of issues to work out, very sad.

    My suggestion is to get a cat until you're out of school and volunteer at
    the Bulldog Rescues and/or go to the Bulldog Shows & learn about this
    breed. Many here waited years to get their 1st bulldog, as did I, better
    for you & your future bulldog. You're going to be very social in your next
    few years, enjoy your life and wait until your settled & have time.

    Until then cats are fabulous, low maintence and very loving, as you know.
    Best of luck to you!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Hi there Big B
    Ya know i was just a bit younger then you when My Grand Mother got Her Bulldog a Female her name was Chance the lucky thing for Me was My Grand Mom lived with us , Chance was My best friend for years we did everything together as there were not a lot of kids my age on the street I lived on in Toronto On CA. Those days I came home from school for lunch so as I was eating on the couch watching TV Chance would get up and put her head on My lap and go to sleep till it was time for me to return to school , after school she was on her rope waiting for Me to get back from school on the front lawn could she ever get excited to see Me come over the top of the hill and start towards our house lol.
    Once a snack was consumed by the both of us and I got My nap sack with a couple bottles of water and a bowl we were gone man , we spent a ton of time in the parks walking everywhere lol
    You came to the right place to ask questions or read on your own my friend tons of articles about what and what not to feed your dog , certain ailments Bulldogs might have you can learn about , the history of the Breed is another amazing topic , they are quite a breed if you take the time to explore where the Bulldog came from . Big B you can see hundreds of pic of the various sizes colors wrinkles ect ect here a great place and everyone cares about the breed here bud . So enjoy KEEP POSTING you thoughts and questions , Oh did I mention Girls really like Bulldogs , think Now a day they call them Chick Magnets but I am sure your not interested in that sort of stuff ........ lol Have fun Bud !

    EWW girls have cooties. Nah I'm messing with ya, I am interested But I am gonna hold off for a few years to get my first bulldog. I think I should familiarize my self with the breed by volunteering out with them at a shelter like yall said. Even though I won't have a bulldog anytime soon, I like the site so I will pop back in every now and then.

    Do that when I was thinking of retirement I knew from the story I told you that it was the breed for Me sort of a gift to Me for retirement and a 2010 Camaro I got both bud lol , My point is it took Me two years too just decide on a breeder alone that breeder is a 12 hour drive for Me so it was that important , they also are with you for life a good breeder is pure support for you and your dog OR should BE so make a good choice ok . Another thing in My view if it sounds to good to be true IT IS ok so price if true breeders like mine are selling pups for $2500.00 and you find one for $800. ya might want to think there might be something wrong right , I have never seen from a true and proper caring breeder sell a pup for under 2500.00 and there sometimes more bud so if it sounds to good to be true do not do it !

    Big B that is My new pup that I will pick up from My breeder in the middle of Sept , she would be 18 days old today.
    We lost our precious Tilly a few weeks ago near crushed Me she was just turned 4 years old and passed from Cancer total bumber bud .
    We decided to call the new pup Primrose ( very English name , remember what I said about checking out the Bulldog breed history ?) her short form name will be Rosie , she is a very large female as big as the males in the litter ( her brothers ) and way larger then her sisters . Ya she is pretty cute more pics of all My dogs ( have 4 not including Rosie at this point ) in My albums help yourself go see .
    Rosie was born 1 day before my Birthday which was pretty cool if you believe in Karma M8 lol

    Great plan -- please do stay with us and soak up as much knowledge as you can. These babies are special and require a lot of care and special needs due to allergies and breathing concerns
