The bite was not really bad, but a bite is a bite and now the owner (who rents) needs to re-home him and won't consider the pound. He is altered and current on his vaccinations.

Can anyone in your network help Max. I don't have a pictures but I can get some.

I sent you a PM!

Oh my gosh......don't some bullies have to small of a back end because of bad breeding? I don't know that for sure but it seems like I've heard that. Must google.

Where will you find the time for puppies. You do so much already. Is there a foster that can help? I hope so.

Bulldog puppies must be born by C-section or there is a good chance both mama and babies must die. They're not like any other breed!

I know EBD are notorius for needing C-sections, so when my vet gets in tomorrow he will hear my panicked phone call telling him I need his home phone and cell phone and mother's phone and neighbors phone and the phone of the grocery store he shops at and his pharmacy........... I think I may have gone a bit overboard in total shock and fear.

I have no clue where the time will come from. I'm freaking out. We just had 11 massive dogs dumped on us by another rescue today. And we've got half a dozen still getting over kennel cough and they're on meds twice a day. I don't know where I'll put the EBDs. And puppies? OMG. They take so much time. And you've got to be so careful about transmission of disease. I have no clue what the heck I"m going to do! Gah!!!

I guess I need to start begging my fosters to each take in an extra dog. If I can get at least 10 of them moved out of my house and into fosters I can dedicate the entire living / dining room to them. I'll just have the kennel girl bleach it down really good. Gah!!!

*deep breath*

im so sad..i wish i was closer....we just went through a process trying to adopt the sweetest little bulldog from our local shelter. Her name was Hermoine. She was such a love! We just adored her and went and visited several times. We passed the first phases and were put in the pool of applications to adopt her. Then waited for even longer while it whittled down more and more, and were SO hopeful when they told us we were in the top 5. But in the end, they found someone else they felt would give her a better home. sigh...its very sad to miss a dog that we never even had live here with us.....
good luck in finding forever homes for these little sweeties...and wonderful you for taking 2 dogs that really need more attention/care than most. well worth it as they are imo.

Not all bulldogs need to have a c-section. Our male's dam gave birth to 8 puppies naturally. But most have it done just as a precaution which is probably a good idea.

Also I'm not sure if you know this or not, but someone will need to be around the mother and her pups for the first couple of weeks, the mother can accidentally smother them.

I hope you will be getting some help, I wish I was able to. Bulldog puppies are the cutest!

I completely agree. There is nothing cuter that a Bulldog puppy. I miss PC as a baby, he was stunningly cute! While I'd love to have such a tiny, cute little puppy again, we decided long before PC came home that he will be our one and only puppy, the rest we'll get as adults. PC was way too easy as a puppy, no way we'd be that lucky again!

Mrs1885, this is what you'll have soon. PC is on the right, with his tiny little legs extended. He was only a couple of hours old in this picture.



4 day old PC:


3 weeks:


Our first time meeting him, at 5 weeks.


His first few days home, 8 weeks.
