    Default Going to pick up Tank on Friday from Missouri

    I've never owned an English bulldog but always have wanted one. He was supposed to be home earlier but there was some confusion with the pet transportation company so we are leaving from Ohio Friday morning. I have been doing a lot of research he is currently eating nitrate source puppy food. He comes from bulldog pros a very good breeder so he is currently on all shots until he is 12 weeks. I'm so nervous cuz I want him to have the best possible care. I need some advice on what it's like bring a bulldog home and making his adjustment easier on him. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Oh, share your concerns but they are the best ever breed to have. Lots of luv and snuggles..... He will know he is boss in a few days, haha. Good luck! PS. Don't worry about the breathing, I thought all the noises Brosco made, he was dying, drove our vet crazy for about a week, it's just them. He also wined the first night so we broke the golden rule and let him sleep with us, probably don't want to do that....eventually got him his own room and put the bed on the floor so he doesn't have to jump. He has his own tv and likes animal planet.....

    Might that be NutriSource? It looks like decent food...it's grain free and that's a good start but both Puppy formulas primary ingredient is chicken. We avoid chicken in Bulldog food. Over the years chicken has been the single most "allergic to" ingredient for the rescues and our own. Some Bulldogs are OK with it, many others not. Deer, Duck, Salmon have better track records in our experience. There's a lot of info here about preferred foods...enough to overload anyone! It all comes down to what HE tolerates well and doesn't make him itch.
    Until all his shots are done, keep him close to home and minimize his exposure to other dogs, dog parks, areas where other dogs do their biz, etc. There will be plenty of time to show him off/socialize him once he's fully immunized.
    Establish a regular schedule (eating, sleeping, playing, peeing, pooping,) for him and keep at it. Less accidents that way.
    Enjoy!

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    So exciting, can't wait to see pics of Mr. Tank in his new home!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
