Normally, I'd be the first telling you to go to a rescue as one of our Boxers came from the Boxer rescue, but with an English Bulldog I'd really look hard at going with a professional breeder as EB's have the highest level of genetic issues (read expensive vet bills) of any breed. There's no way to breed out all genetic issues, but a pup from a backyard breeder or one with an unknown history is going to more than likely have more issues than what the breed is already known for. We have several family members and friends with EB's and the vet bills just are crazy.

You speak the absolute truth, and it should not be ignored. We made the mistake of not researching an EB breeder (who has since been run out of business), and by the time our female turned 4 earlier this year, she has cost us over $15,000.00 in vet bills.

I meant to add, though, that you cannot beat a bulldog for its disposition and character.

Co-worker just got one..............for $2500. Crazy. They can't breed on their own and have to get c-sections. I could find out where if you're looking to spend that kind of money. We got our boxer from Lone Star Boxer Rescue also.

I need to find the breeder I got my little girl from years ago. Vickie's Bullies, or something like that up north Houston off 45 and beltway somewhere.

I've had no problems with my bulldog, and she's 10 now. Maybe because of her size though. She's usually around 35 lbs. Her daddy was 75 and her momma was 55 lbs. Guess I got the runt.

edit: Oh yea. Poor baby had an ulcer on her eye about a month ago. We're still treating that atm, but it's going well. I'm not sure that has anything to do with the breed though.

Our male had eye ulcer problems due to his eyelid/lashes being rolled inward (common on several breeds with pudgy faces). Surgery to correct = $2,000.

I can't seem to find a legit company that doesnt charge an arm and a leg.
However, it seems that there are MANY people trying to run a scam

Good to know. This is the first she's had a problem, and the vet checked for eyelashes and didn't notice that. So must've be just something else.

The pictures looks like Boxer EB mixes. Great now you get all the problems of a EB with the added problems related to Boxers....sweet!!

Ran out of time to edit...Looks like their not mixed with Boxers, but instead with the following breeds with the stated ratio:

"The foundation crosses consisted of English Bulldog, 1/6 Bullmastiff, 1/6 APBT, and 1/6 American Bulldog"


If you're going to go this route, then please go rescue a dog rather than pay for this assortment of left over parts.

Good looking pup. I want to apologize for sounding like a d!ck, but that website pi$$ed me off because of it's claims of creating the most "freakishly muscular specimans" and the overall reinforcement of the whole "Bully Breed" mentality. If I ever find out what SOB came up with the term Bully Breed, I'm going to kick them in the sack. The stupid label of Bully Breed in nothing more than a made up category to capitalize on a marketing angle. The fact that this term has gained acceptance should be of great concern for all who own Pits, Rottis, Boxers, etc. as many of the proposed dog bans that cities have tried to enact have used the term Bully Breed as a catch all....kind of like the assault weapons ban which banned guns because of the way they looked, i.e. pistol grip, flash suppressor, bayonet lug, etc.

I have always had Boxers and Bull Mastiffs as I prefer dogs with those types of lines and build, however, too many a-holes get Pits and other similarly built breeds specifically because of the image marketed by those pushing this Bully Breed label. I went and did a little research on the Olde English Bulldogge and was happy to read that David Leavitt, the gentlemen who has been trying to re-introduce the breed since 1971, is also concerned about the "Bully" marketing surrounding the breed.
