    Ask for Registration documents with the UK kennel club, are they a registered breeder if so ask to see the MoM and Dad , references from other purchasers , ask for there Vets phone number and call them about the pup . I am sorry I use only reputable breeders, I do not buy from Kijiji, Craigslist list and or similar sites pet stores ect ect you have no idea where the pup has come from . Here in Ontario Canada , Old English Bulldog pups start at app $2500.oo Canadian dollars not sure what that equals in EU or pounds but it is a lot , so if it sounds to good to be true it could be . Contact a real reputable breeder ask what they sell there pups for to give your self a idea of cost , also keep in mind these dogs can be expensive in vet bills , some never have issues some do like anything else .
    Spend some time on the site here read all the advice you can find if you have a question ask , everyone here loves the breed and will help, some have multiple Bulldogs . there are tons of pics of bulldogs here lol were anal that way we love pics, look thru them see what ya think M8

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    One thing I did notice in your pics and I might be totally off base here is your dogs tail ( maybe someone else here can give a better opinion ) but I have never seen a pure bread Bulldog tail strait out ( first pic sixth pic and last pic ) -june17dogs-025-jpg-july-13th-033-jpgName:  Rosie29daysold.2.jpg

    Hi, Natski has given you great advice as to,which questions to ask, and who to contact. He looks like a Bulldog, but I also noticed the tail is longer than usual on a EB. I don't have any experience with breeders and breed standards, so don't know if some EB's have a longer tail? He could be an EB mix? He is very cute though, and looks like an EB.

    He is a cutie, and believe it or not, but the straight tail is a desired tail. That one is a little long, but not that much and it's no big deal. The thing that concerns me is his face. It looks like they have injected fluid into his folds around his nose to make them look bigger. Some puppy mills will do this. That could be his natural look, but I would definitely take notice of that.

    I was trying to figure out what did not look right to me.... his face does appear 'swollen'. thanks David. And, this pup is in th UK where I thing the straight tail is more dominate. Our sweet Mia had a straight tail and if was the first time I had seen one in person (not just a picture)

    Cute pup! You've got good advice; if you want a purebred dog you must make sure he has proper registration papers and that you meet the parents.

    I cannot say if he's purebred from the pics - just like the others I noticed the long tail and the rather swollen face. I didn't knwo about injections - sounds absolutely terrible. Anyway, our Castor has a straight although not as long tail. This is what itl looked like at 9-10 weeks:
