    Welcome to the site. Wow, Korea, what are you doing over there? Did you find your puppy locally? How exciting, your world will soon transform into a bully addiction!

    I crate and paper trained. I would crate only when gone, however my Bella has a medical issue that made me put down papers when home, just in case. Both worked well.

    I can't wait to see photos.

    Always with me

    Welcome! Can't wait to see pics of your upcoming pup ... the expectation here is to post pics the night of when you get him, so pls don't forget!

    I tried to paper train and crate train my Stig, but in the end we just had to continually take him out whenever we thought he had to go and just let him go free on the paper whenever he wanted.

    YAY! I can just imagine how excited you are. I am fairly new here and I can tell you that everyone here is really nice and they have a lot of great information so never hesitate to ask when you have a question.

    We litter trained Gator as well as crate training. I LOVED the litter box because when we brought him home there was snow on the ground. I crated him when gone or at night for bed and he never did potty in there (well, once) and then I put his litter box next to his crate so first thing in the morning he would go in there. After he had been here about a month and I had been taking him outside consistently, I removed the litter box and voila! Housetrained. The breeder got him started in the litter so that helped me but I would guess that you would do it the same as paper.

    Where did you get him? Do you have a name picked out? What is his coloring? Good luck and don't forget us when you take pictures!

    Thanks for the fast replies! This site has already been extremely helpful; I've just been lurking around the old posts and found so much information. Very glad I joined.


    I will definitely upload pics the night I get him which will be tomorrow!!!!!


    I left the US for Asia a few years ago for personal reasons (e.g. my outlook on the political and economic arena). I'm staying in Korea with family for a short time while I continue trading currencies and studying (learning Mandarin as well). I'll be moving to Singapore or Shanghai within 2-3 years.

    I'm checking out some online Korean pet stores to order supplies. Tomorrow can't come fast enough!



    Another thing I'm worried about is I have to go up to Seoul next week. I'm getting my boy on Friday (tomorrow). I live in Daegu but I have an apartment in Seoul also. Going to Seoul takes 1 hour and 45 min on train, but I have to take a cab from the station to my apartment which is about 20-30 min. Will I put too much stress on the pup if I stay in Seoul for a few days and come back to Daegu? Daegu will be his home. I also want to train him right and I'm afraid I might confuse the hell out of him if I have him switch apartments within a week.

    Ah, looks like I missed a few posts.

    I've been looking for bully breeders in Korea and was having a tough time surfing the Korean net. I went to a pet shop and they said they would bring a pup or two from a breeder in Kyeongi Do (South Korean province). Now that I'm asking for breeder information and asking a lot of questions, they tell me they can't tell me the breeder information or number. They have a contract together and that I have to ask all my questions through them (the pet store). They also wouldn't tell me the information for bulldog clubs in Daegu, they would tell me after I buy the pup. All these raised flags and have also been pretty annoying.

    I got a friend to help me surf the web and I found a breeder about an hour away. I'm going to call them today and see what's going on with them. All pups are adorable, but I want a healthy well-bred dog. Wish me luck! Any tips, I would be more than grateful.

    Honestly, I don't think it will confuse him to go from one place to another. I think as long as there is one constant, YOU, then he will be ok. Can you spend a few days bonding first?

    Don't buy from a pet store...period! You must see and get info on parents. Maybe if you pick one out..you could put off picking him up until after your trip to Seoul? I know it would be hard..but might help with settling in for new pup.

    Thanks for the replies again.

    I don't like buying from pet shops either, I ended up at one after failing to find breeders here. The pet shop owner told me that they were gonna get from a breeder, they're bringing a pup down today from a breeder (supposedly). I've visited the shop a few times with detailed questions about the breeder but they won't give a lot of info. I'm going to go in today and if they still don't give me any info, parents, registration, etc.; I'm not gonna pick him up (even though all puppies are adorable and it's so hard to resist). I'm going to be having my new best friend for 10 years at least and I don't want to run into health problems (or other problems) constantly. I also want to be able to get in touch with the breeder.

    I got in touch with a breeder about an hour away from here after an extensive search on the Korean net. "British Bulldogs" is their name and they have one male pup that's about 2 weeks old right now. I'm going to call at lunch to get more info. I have a list of questions but if there are any significant ones that I may have missed let me know
