So I “won” a bill dog yesterday from a free raffle. I went expecting a Frenchie puppy, I got a English bulldog mix, about 7 months old with no name even yet, he walks funny though Ans his front feet are turned out we have a vet apt this week but just wanted opinions for now he plays and runs with my other dogs so he doesn’t seem to be in pain.

What a cutie! They are a lot of work, but the affection they give is tremendous. Best wishes!

Be sure the vet you choose is bulldog savvy… they are special cases and can have long list of health issues. With the feet turned in.. I believe that is a malnutrition problem… if you are willing, you should find and feed him a good raw diet to help get him on the right track.

He is a beautiful boy. I think you really did win first prize! With a little bit of something else mixed in, he could be healthier than your average bulldog!
My dachshund has "Charlie Chaplin" feet. It just adds to his charm! Good luck at the vets and as mentioned, make sure he is Bulldog savvy, it makes all the difference.

This is actually a common misconception, concocted and spread by aspca/peta/etc.

??? More info please. I have heard that a bulldog mix is often healthier as for starters their nose is usually a bit longer.

A preservation breeder, doing health tests on their stock and making conscious decisions on matching, will ALWAYS produce healthier pups than the (at best) random chance a backyard breeder gets. When you mix breeds you INTRODUCE MORE issues and MORE unreliability. Having no idea at all of a dog's pedigree puts you at a major disadvantage as an owner.

The current trend of "doodles" is a great present-day-crisis example of this.

He’s absolutely beautiful. At the end of the day, he will have less breathing issues cause his nose is a tad longer. He also has less nose rope, less bulging eyes……in a nutshell, less issues ”if” any, to go through.

Enjoy, he’s sure is a cutie ❤️

I would go further and say I agree 100% with what I posted above. The article only very briefly touches on my main point:
