IS BULLDOG A PERFECT CHOICE FOR YOU?

What you will want from your canine companion is the first factor that should be put into consideration when looking at Bulldog breeds. If you’re looking for a dog to take a 10-mile walk with you, swim across the lake, go on field trips in 99-degree weather, climb over high hurdles, or hunt and catch prey. Then a Bulldog isn’t your best choice. However, bulldogs can do an outstanding job of finding T-bone steaks on the grill!

Most bulldogs are laid back, quiet, and comfortable. Heat is the greatest threat to the Bulldog. If you live anywhere that summer temperatures are above the mid-80s,
an air-conditioned home is required. They withstand cold weather well, obviously within reason. Bulldogs love to ride in the car and sleep at the foot of your bed, sofa, or easy chair. Bulldogs will require plenty of caring and socialization, giving you the same in exchange. Bulldogs are very alert, even when they seem to be dosing and snoring. If all is not fine, bulldogs will rise quickly! Bulldogs usually get along well with kids, pets, and people. We seem to like and to be part of the family. Bulldogs are breeds that hold to their “beauty” as adults and as a puppy. Most dogs look nice but lose some physical appeal as they age. The Bulldog looks excellent always! They’re not known as guard dogs at all. Nevertheless, they will protect the people they love and provide some protection.

The Bulldog is a medium-sized breed belonging to the Non-Sporting dog breed community. They are always excellent in a home setting or a flat. Bulldogs have a
short-hair coat and shed some, but with regular brushing, the shedding will be less of a nuisance. Face folds and wrinkles should receive daily care. I will highly recommend that you find a veterinarian with plenty of Bulldog experience so that your dog gets the best treatment for his peculiar anatomy. Bulldogs sometimes require c-sections for puppy birth.

Bulldog Cost

A Bulldog’s average lifespan is ten years. It depends on food, exercise, wellbeing, and other factors as they can live more or less than ten years. Bulldogs are an expensive breed to purchase, the late 2005 price ranging from $2000-$3000 for a healthy and quality bulldog in most of Australia and internationally. Remember, in most situations, you get what you’re paying for but beware of buying Bulldog puppies for a few hundred bucks. Endeavor to stay away from people trying to sell “Mini Bulldogs,” registered Bulldogs with a background you’ve never heard of, puppy mills, pet stores, dealers, and dogs that don’t look like bulldogs. Show standard British bulldogs are priced several hundred dollars higher. Everything depends on how the contract/sale bill is written. Co-ownership, conventional pet, or full ownership with a potential puppy(s) pack plays a role in the bulldog price. An average cost of a bulldog puppy should be around 2500.00 for a good quality pet. Note that pedigree(heritage), health screening, sire, and dam also play a cost role.

There’s the cost of keeping bulldogs, an expense that will prolong the dog’s life. You will likely spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on vet bills, many people never spend any money on vet bills except annual check-ups, but it’s possible, and you should understand the breed you are having. Start always with the right quality puppy and health guarantee. An excellent option for the person who wants a Bulldog but can’t afford a hefty sum for the initial purchase would be a Bulldog rescue. There are many local clubs, animal shelters, rescue groups, and other organizations that need a second chance at life for Bulldogs. Rescue is one of the best things a dog can get from humans. Recall the spay/neuter option when you get your dog. If you’re planning on this, it’s best to have it done within 6-month-old of age.

Nevertheless, it can be done reasonably safely later in the dog’s life. The breed is registered with the Australian National Kennel Club only by the name “British Bulldog,” though many also refer to the kind as the English Bulldog. It’s not a significant deviation of the term.

There is no greater joy than being the owner of a legendary Bulldog.
