I am planning on purchasing an English Bulldog puppy for a pet. This will be my first purebred dog purchase. I have been watching the ads on this site, but would like any information that could be given about choosing a breeder. I live in Arkansas so I would prefer to get one in one of the surrounding states so I can pick him up personally instead of shipping. I have small children and have read that this is a good breed, any information on this would also be very helpful. I know that they can have health issues so I want to make sure and find a good honest breeder. Any information about the breed, training, or health issues would be very beneficial to me.
