Fast forward to the other evening when I ran across the website of a breeder who lives fairly close to us. I e-mailed asking if they ever sold the older dogs after breeding age had passed (this happens often in kennels) and was told no but that they had a puppy that they were willing to let go for cheap, if we were willing to come pick her up. And I mean cheap...like actually in my price range cheap. I never wanted a show dog or one for breeding so this would work out perfectly. And while I would like to say that I adopted her from the humane society I do want to point out that in this case I doubt I would ever find a bulldog at the pound. They truly are rarely seen in shelters and the rescues are too far from us to even consider getting one from.
So we now are the owner of a third dog. A "little too much", as hubby says, but come on...I've always wanted a bully! This little girl is an Olde English Bulldog, which means she should have less health problems than a regular English Bulldog. The Oldes are a bit taller and don't have as many breathing or eye issues. Her tail isn't docked so she looks a little more like a pitbull at this point but who can resist the face of a bulldog? She isn't named yet so I'm open to suggestions! Update: Puppy has been named Weezy.
This photo is where she is wrapped up in a blanket for her nap, thanks to Jacob.
And here I unwrapped her for her debut. I'm sure more photos will surface of her when she is awake soon. She is such a sweetie and all the kids are having a blast with her.
