    First of all Welcome and I'm glad you found this board. Weezy is precious and I hope he feels better soon.

    From what i've seen less for a bully means health problems, not necessarily breeding/showing rights, the differences in price i've seen on those is around $500. My vet told me specifically to be careful of cheaper bullies because of health issues but if he is from the same litter as more expensive puppies, the breeder must have known about the murmur.

    Hope you got good news at the vet. Did the breeder give you a health gaurantee? I'm surprised that the breeder would send you home with a puppy they thought was sick.

    I'm so glad that his cold symptoms aren't bad... just keep an eye on it so it doesn't progress into pneumonia. As for the heart mur-mur... there are LOTS of human infants born with mur-murs also and they grow out of them without a problem.

    You are a very good bullie parent for finding out as much info as possible. Please keep us posted on Wheezy... and lots pf pictures aren't a bad idea either.
    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.

    First congrats on your new baby. I have some experience with heart murmurs as when I brought my bulldog puppy to the vet he had a heart murmur as well. I took him to a Cardiologist as my regular vet informed me that the only way to tell what kind of murmur it is is with an echocardiogram. You cannot tell from the sound or severity of the murmur whether it is a harmless murmur that he will outgrow or not. It turned out my Midas has mild-moderate pulmonic stenosis. So in my case the murmur will not go away but according to the Cardiologist as long as it does not get any worse than it is right now he will be fine. If it does get worse he will need an operation called Balloon valvuloplasty which will help open up the hole leading from his heart to his lung..kinda like an angioplasty on people. Luckily I did purchase him from a
    WONDERFUL breeder who as soon as I notified her refunded my money right away and gave me the option of returning him or keeping him...my choice..so of course I kept him.

    His condition hasn't slowed him down at all. He is now 8 months old and weighs 59lbs...
