Thanks everyone again..will try to keep you all updated.
    Bring him to the local animal hospital that is open 24 hours in your city. Forget isolated private-practice vets. ER doctors knowledge is worth its weight in gold.

    If it could be separation anxiety, I suggest you use a wind-up clock and place it by him in his bed. The ticking sound of the clock resembles the mother's heart beat.

    I believe phenobarb is step one for seizures. That is the first medication my shepherd was started on for seizures.

    Is it possible that he is blind? How does he sleep? Does he only pace at home or in the car and outside as well?
    If he is hydrocephalic, he needs to be treated immediately as the water on the brain will only increase and cause other problems. There has to be a VCA specialty hospital near you. You may want to research some Yelp reviews of vets near you to see who specializes in bulldogs. If you happen to be in CA, Davis Medical Center Vet school handles all these things. If not, find out where the nearest veterinary medicine university is and make an appointment with them. Thats where the experts are and it is usually more reasonable in price for bigger procedures. Did you contact the dogs breeder?

    I would call the breeder asap let them know this is going on and ask about what vet the recommend.
    I hate to say it but this early on I think I would be looking at a replacement from the breeder before I got any more attached if that is an option. It may sound heartless but I have kids and we suddenly lost a puppy and it was devastating to all of us.

    Well the vet said today that he could be going blind and he did pace in the car in a circle on the way to the vet yesterday,and we contacted the breeder about it and they don't want to take him back because he was healthy when he left them..he's getting snappy when u try to pet him too.He paces like all day then lays down like earlier he had been pacing all day then finally he went over to where his bed is and was moving around and then finally laid down.

    Ok well first sounds like you're breeder stinks. Sorry second did you have a contract with them? If not the third question is how did you pay because if it is with a check or credit card you can cancel the payment and this may get their attention so that they are more apt to help you
    All that aside the snapping is not good . My immediate response is to tell you to find a trainer who will help you work with him to calm down but unless his medical stuff is sorted out that may not be mush help. I would still find a good trainer and give them a call. The are usually really knowledge about health related behaviour issues and may even be able able to point you in a direction where you can get him some real help because right now all it sounds like you are getting is your wallet squeezed

    If he have problem with eyesight or is in any sign of pain snapping could be the cause of this
    Get him used to the touch -touch him as often as you can -even when hes sleeping
    Im so sorry about your breeder
    You were given great advice -and i think a full tests should be done on the puppy by a vet (not sure what they can do as i never experienced this myself) to get to the bottom of everything xx

    Where do you live? There is an amazing bulldog specialist in indianapolis. His name is Dr. Curt Phillips and he is THE BEST
    Even if you don't live close you could give him q call explain the situation and ask for his advice and a referral. He is very kind and helpful so I'm sure that would not be a problem. I can give you his # if you decide to give him a call pm me

    Their website says 1 year health guarantee on all puppies, But exchanging texts they said 3 months or older they dont have a guarantee. They also said no refund or exchange because he was "perfectlly healthly" when we bought him.

    What does the contract that you signed say? Please look into the Health and Safety code section for your state that governs the lemon puppy law. California has one. Any contract that is at odds with the state law is invalid. If your little puppy has started snapping at you, he is in pain. If he is going blind, there is a medical reason. Dogs born sighted don't go blind for no reason. I feel so bad for your pup.
