my heart is breaking over peanut & so is my kids & my hubby, as most of you guys in here know i purchased peanut 3 weeks ago from a breeder thinking she had a uti, and that she has been living in diapers she's a 3 1/2 month old english bull puppy. she is soooooooooo beautiful i just found out that she has spina biffida ( might of spelled it wrong ) i was hoping and praying to god that we was gonna get years out of her life , but i just found out that she will not have but just a very little bit of borrowed time with us and we love her so much , i change her diapers at least 3 times a hour , soak her bottom at least 3 times a day , but whats gonna get 2 her is infection that will keep going up her bladder well not infection going up but germs from wet diapers & from when she does poopy in her diapers and if i'm not right there 2 change it immedieatly it lets bacteria up there to her bladder, i am hoping to find me another bullie before we have to have her put down with the grace of god watching over us i know some how some where we will find us one , we are all going nuts , the past 90 min her legs have gotten a lil stiff , but she still wants to love on us , i have tried sooooooooooooo hard with my lil angel. thanks all
I'm so sorry to hear this...Have you talked to the breeder? You should have gotten a health guarentee and this definetly fall into that. I know you love the puppy, but the breeder should have sold you a healthy puppy. Also they need to know for future breeding.
i have left her tons of voice mails but she will never return my phone calls it's like she wanted 2 push this problem off on someone else & like i'm not a human with a heart or feelings , i guess she thinks we are overly rich & can afford bullies left & right , which we can't we had 2 save up 2 get her and that took awhile to even do that , now i just don't know what to do my heart is broken into a zillion pieces so is my hubbies & my daughters cause she is deffiently a huge part of our family ...
Is she a registered breeder with akc? If so report her to them as she is responsible for the health of your pup, and the rest of the pups in the litter. I know that doesnt help you and your family and the pup but she needs to be responsible as a breeder. All my furries and I will say a little prayer for all of you.
trust me i did contact akc on her right after i 1st found out that she was incointent & she would not return my calls, we drove up to her place like 8 times already and noone is ever home , i have even left messages with the neighbors of hers..i call her house her cell phone i even called from friends houses & payphones also incase she has caller id
I thought spina bifida was when the spine didn't fuse together? How did the vet explain what is actually going on inside her? I agree to go after the people. THey should have found out what was wrong before selling her.
joce they found out from x-rays i wasn't supposed 2 have em done till this fri but i ran her right up the rd from where we live at cause she seemed to be a lil still 2 day and the done x -rays thats what it is fussion causes spina biffida , they took intense x-rays of the pelvic area.
I found an informative website about this topic. It actually is a bulldog website. They list different spinal abnormalities in bulldogs. Spina Bifida is listed about halfway down. I'm not promoting this website. I wanted to list it purely for the purpose of informing people about this disease in dogs.
tyvm hunter the worst case of sb describes her to a t the butt rash & all. i am sitting here crying my eyes out now cause i even went to look at her fur & it's like that also. i just love this lil girl soooooooooooo much, i have grown one hell ( excuse me 4 that but i'm crying my eyes out ) of a bond with her by doing the diaper thingy , soaks in the tub daily cause of the rash , meds from the vet for her rash on her butt.desitin so on so 4th. noone will ever know the bond i have with this lil girl and she is soooooooooo beautiful.i swear i feel like it's the end of my life. i have been more worried about her than about my husband. i even make her boiled chicken , rice , hamburger , canned punkin to try 2 get her bowels firmer , i'm just lost 4 words here.
I am so very sorry you are going through this. It just bothers me to no end that this so-called breeder is not returning calls or emails. I would do everything in my power to end her breeding days. She must have known that little Peanut was not well when she sold her to you and did not want the burden. But to put you and your family through this heartache, this woman has no heart and no brain.
I hope things work out for you and you bring this woman down. I would plaster her name/kennel name all over so other people don't have to go through this.
Please give Peanut a hug :)

took a ride tonight up 2 the breeders home, pretty funny no 1 would answer the door but seen tv on & heard it,but no answer thats ok i left her a present omg i am usually a very laid back easy going person but i left her a dirty diaper with a note on it saying this is from peanut & her mommy. that we would love for you to call us very soon & we do love you something like that or mom is gonna take my dirty diapers to court with her . i wanted 2 throw it at the door but bob ( my hubby ) said not 2 do that.
Oh Bullie, My heart is breaking. I just turned on my computer this morning and read your post. =( I know how frustrating it can be trying to get ahold of your breeder. I can not get ahold of the people who gave us Max. They will not call me back either. I am so sad for you and I love my little peanut pup pal too. She is so adorable and does not deserve any of this she has been through. I had to chuckle about the little visit you made last nite. I know it is a very upsetting situation but it made me laugh that you did that. I hope you got your point across. If there is anything at all that I can do to help you, just ask. If you just want to talk, we will. I am just so upset. Do not feel all alone in your pain, we are all here with you.
Bullie, I am so sorry that you are having to go through this heartache. I have never had to deal with anything like this, but I certainly know how it is to try to contact a breeder, and to be totally ignored.
I am so sorry to hear all you are going through and your puppy as well. I would make sure I would report this breeder to the Better Business Bureau and maybe they will have some advice as to what you should do. This lady must be stopped! ((Hugs))
