    Default Hi from Spokane, Wa

    Hi, our family has been contemplating adding a bulldog to it's midst for a couple years and it is looking like we may finally take the plunge. We are a blended family with 8 kids between us (luckily most are out of the house, lol). We also have 2 grandkids, though I don't feel old enought to be a grandma!! The boss of the hous, or at least he thinks so, is our Westie. We are very aware of the importance of genetics and impeccable breeding as well as the possible associated medical problems with Bulldogs. Hence the long contemplation period. I have thoroughly researched bulldogs but now I am asking for any advice from the pro's, all you bulldog owners. The breeder I am possibly buying from is Silver Butte Kennels, here in Washington. Please help!!

    Welcome! It sounds like you have certainly done your homework on bullies. They sure can be a handful, but there is nothing else like them in the world! I personally adopted my dog from a rough situation, but I would love to have a puppy sometime in the future. You have come to the right place for advice and answers to all of your questions!

    Hi...I have no info about the breeder but maybe you could ask for references from previous people who own one of their puppies in my opinion you can't go wrong with a bully they are the most loveable loyal dog I have ever owned i wouldn't trade my bullies for anything!!! Good luck and hope all works out for you

    I always wanted a bully and my only regret of getting one is why did I wait so long? They have their own little personality, like no other breed. They are a little more time consuming than some other breeds, face washing daily and brushing because they do seem to shed, but I enjoy all of it. You can eliminate alot of the health issues by starting them off on a great food. Food makes a huge difference and eliminates alot of issues. Just check out the article on food and the food ratings page. It was a lifesaver to me and taught me so much!

    Usually for the cut-off for age is 8 for rescue. But good for you for getting a Bullie!!! They ROCK!!!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    They are the best dogs ever, most loving and great personalities. Yes they are a little bit of work but well worth it. I think I would ask for references of previous owners of the breeder, and see if they will show you the sire and dam. Good luck and you will love them.

    You have lots of good advice already. If you seriously want a rescue, most organizations will look at you as an individual so that even if your children are younger than the cut-off they may still consider you.

    I don't know anything about the breeder but the suggestions of the others are good...maybe get references as well as ask to see the parents (keep in mind the sire may not be on premises). You may also want to browse the articles (link at the top of the page) I think there is info on finding a puppy.

    Good luck and I hope you find your bully soon!

    First of all,, to EBN. Glad you joined and I hope you find exactly what you are looking for. With bullies quality is most often reflected in their cost. Quality breeders go to great length to breed out some of the negative health issues of the breed.... and you pay for their effort. Most times it is worth it in the long run not to go the cheap route with bullies... Also, beware of the scam... their are so many scams out there for bullies its unbelievable. Take your time and be careful but have fun in your search. Bullies are worth every penny except when they eat your shoe
