    Praying for you and little Roscoe. I hope he makes it. Puppy mill people don't care about anything but $$$$.

    Hope your puppy is improving. My little guy had a bad case of pneumonia too - it can be especially dangerous for bulldog puppies - but he came out just fine. I'm praying for yours as well! please also consider getting him pet insurance so you'll never have to worry. Trupanion or Healthy Paws are the best imo. take care!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. It's so heartbreaking when your puppy gets sick. I'm also sorry that you got scammed by SugarPlum Bulldogs. I spoke with that woman when I was looking for a breeder around here before I got Ruckus. Having had bulldogs before, her whole story sounded shady. After asking around about her, and actually talking to someone who is heavily involved in the bulldog clubs and shows up here, I learned she has a terrible reputation. It's unfortunate, but her breeding goals are not for a great dog that carries on the best traits of the breed; she just wants to make money. She actually isn't a breeder either, she's a broker. She owns a "breeding facility" -- as she called it, aka puppy mill -- in the midwest and she breeds something like 10 dogs at once, which is why she has upwards of 40 and 50 puppies available on any given month. Once the puppies are close to 8 weeks, she transports them to her property in Virginia and sells them for a high price. The entire operation is disgusting. This is all before you realize that she breeds "mini" bulldogs -- breeding runts and sometimes mixing in Boston Terrier to keep the size small.

    I'll stop my rant about her and just say I'm so sorry this is happening to you, but if your pup has pneumonia he needs to be on medication and under a vet's care. If you have a good vet, they aren't "scamming" you about this little guy having pneumonia. I hope he gets better and that he has a happy life with your family. Do what you think is best, this must be so hard for you. My thoughts are with you!

    Just reading this post now...hope you get it. We got Duchess from Sugarplum a few weeks before you with the same exact issues. Lumps, pneumonia, allergic reactions, puppy strangles, bacterial infections... Would love to swap stories, see how Roscoe is doing, and if we can get anything out of Morgan.

    Here is what we went through in the beginning
    When she first arrived, she had an allergic reaction to her microchip, which caused a tennis ball-sized lump on her shoulder blade and her vaccination site to abscess. Her lowered immune system earned her a light case of pneumonia. She also had two parasites in her stool. After a couple rounds of antibiotics (three different ones), she seemed to recover.


    Enter Red Face. Her face started swelling and get red and itchy. The vet said she had allergies to whatever toys or food we were giving her. Her Highness, like most Bulldogs, already can't handle grain or gluten. But apparently the Duchess also didn't like her grain-free chicken food. Now she is on dog food that only contains Rabbit, Peas, and Tapioca. Her treats were switched out accordingly and toys updated to get rid of any rubber/plastic products that could also trigger a reaction.This seemed to be working.


    Enter Red Face 2: Red Harder. Things were starting to get better, but then she got red again and started getting lesions on her face. This time, it was Juvenile Cellulitis, also known as Puppy Strangles. WTF-- who calls a disease puppy strangles. It occurs in puppies with a weakened immune system and includes swelling, lesions, and itching of the face. Prednisone to the rescue for this one. However, we had to treat the secondary symptoms. Because of the cellulitis, she grew out three (THREE! The overachiever) bacteria on her a face: a staph infection, a strep infection, and psuedomonis. The issue here was no antibiotic treated all three of the bacteria. So, we went on a couple more rounds of antibiotics. And things started to look it better.


    Enter Red Face 3: Red Face with a Vengeance. You guessed it, red and itchy again. This time, the skin tests showed she has skin mites, transferred to her by her mother, and thankfully, not transmittable to humans. Now she is on some other antibiotic for this.

    We are almost over the skin mites and she was able to finally get her rabbies shot without a reaction. But we have to do Parvo shots all over again because she was too weak to complete the treatment earlier.

    She did also successfully get spayed. Though the vet did find a urachal remnant that had to be removed as well.

    Hope thing are going well with Roscoe...Duchess, knock on wood, seems to be tiring the corner.

    @oldbaystyle Whew! You and your Duchess have sure been through the "mill" (as in puppy mill) but her picture now-she looks great! She sure is the million dollar dog!
    I am sorry that you had to go through all this-but it shows what a good person you are to do so-many people would have dumped her.(except the ones who join here!) We all care for our members and their babies-and really wish we could be close enough to really help-but the support that is received "long distance" is so much help! I would also like to know about the pup from @Helpmeplease and hope no one ever buys from that so called breeder. God bless you for what you did for Duchess!
