    Default Just adopted my first EB!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to this community, and just adopted my family's first English Bulldog puppy!

    He's only 8 weeks old, and he was the runt of the litter, but he is adorable. We fell in love with him instantly.

    My husband has always wanted one, and it took me some time, but I saved up the money and purchased Brisket from a local breeder.

    He did not come with papers, and he's a little on the small side, but I saw his parents and they looked like purebred EBs.

    I am not too concerned about whether or not he's purebred, he has the look of an EB and though he is small, he is feisty! Is that an EB thing? He's also very nippy! He bites everything! I contribute it to his teething and hoping with some training it will dissipate.

    I was wondering if you guys can provide some feedback on our Brisket about whether or not he looks purebred, and about his breathing? He tends to sound a little congested sometimes when he sleeps, but when he's up he doesn't at all. I have a vet appointment set for Friday but was hoping for some reassurance until then.

    Thanks!-img_3118-jpg -img_3108-jpg -img_3116-jpg

    Why thank you! I’ve had some time to adjust to my new home and my new big brother, Oreo the miniature schnauzer seems to be kind of a grumpy Gill but my new mommy and other siblings are just so fun to chase! I love chewing on their shoes and trying to lick their toes ��. I am so happy to be here and learn about your bully babies and how you spoil them too!

    Welcome!
    Oh baby brisket you little heartbreaker!!! So adorable!

    I’d definitely get his breathing checked out on Friday at the vet might be just a little cold.

    And yes, bully puppies are biters and have what I call “terrorist teeth”..it sucks...for a while...

    Haha terrorist teeth, that’s clever. I like that!

    I will definitely get it checked out at the vet. I have taken video of his breathing to show the vet. Hopefully they will provide some clarity and it’s nothing major. I was hoping it didn’t have to do with worms, but he was dewormed at 6 weeks so hoping that won’t be the issue. I worry considering the Brachycephalic breeds.

    Oh my goodness! Jake is BEAUTIFUL!!
    I know they change a lot, and it really does not concern me how big he gets as long as he's healthy and happy. My husband and I just love the way they waddle and wiggle when they're excited

    Thank you!!

    We came across that name when we were looking to adopt a rescue and my husband loved it! He had wanted an EB for as long as I have known him (13+ years) and he wanted to name it Mr. Beefy when he got one (from little Nicky), but when I mentioned that name, he loved it! He had it picked out before we had the puppy picked out lol. Then it just matched perfectly with our little guy. He responded to it right away too!
