Because of unethical greedy breeders, they are going to ruin it for the ethical, responsible preservation breeders that breed for health and not for money. It's only a matter of time before other countries start banning them too along with other breeds.

Another method of control. Did anyone see a few speeches at DAVOS? The climate control "big shots" They said the REAL WORDS outloud. "You will have NOTHING and you will be happy!" One control at a time. Why not just have a stricter standard to improve? Another ploy for govt. control.
Thanks for the article @helsonwheels, you 've got me riled up!!:facepalm2:

There is a strict standard to follow. The issue is that backyard breeders do not follow it, they don't do the recommended health testing on their dogs before breeding and all they care about is money. THEY are the problem. Ethical and responsible breeders health test their dogs before breeding, breed to the standard and breed to better the breed. Those are the breeders that need to be preserved and those are the breeders people should be looking for.

I understand that, @Cbrugs you are exactly correct! So why ban ALL? Enforce the standards-inform the public. I am not a genius, but I researched, spoke to the breeders veterinarian before buying.

As long as people keep buying poorly bred bulldogs, then backyard breeders will continue to exist. Local clubs and the parent club, Bulldog Club of America, are great resources for education and we try to educate the public every chance we get.

Unfortunately, there are many unhealthy bulldogs out there and that is what everyone sees so they now have a stigma around them that as a whole, the breed is unhealthy, which we know is not true. We need everyone to see all of our healthy, well-bred bulldogs and let people know that they do exist. We need to educate people looking to add bulldogs to their family in what to look for in a responsible breeder and what questions to ask. We need to educate people on the bulldog standard and that is what they should be looking for in the breed.

When I got Duke, he was the normal EB on the red side like all his siblings but his brother Jake, he has a lilac fawn coat n some merle ears. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Where did that come from? Who knows. The breeder said you only need that one gene n it can happen. Yes definitely too many bad breeders out there n definitely not only the EB that was modified. When Duke pass, we visited my breeder n Nyala went straight to Jake n sat there without moving. I think she knew it was Duke’s brother. All this to say, Jake was on his way to Ontario as someone wanted him for breeding. My breeder was hesitating shipping him to Ontario. Her gut kept telling her no. She did say she was worried Jake would be used for colour pups. She decided on the spot to let us bring Jake home. She didn’t even make a cent on him. She wanted to make sure he goes to a good home. BTW Jake’s made one litter n all 4 was like Duke.

I was wondering about the back and forth there the last couple months but turns out the op article was a year old

This is still very much a real struggle for the breed around the world.
