We are researching the purchase of an English Bulldog and are becoming confused with all of the different breeders. We've found one breeder with beautiful pups but won't offer anything in the way of credentials or associations. I've asked for contacts of past customers with no response and he will only except payment via Western Union. Would you deal with this breeder?
Icky, find a new breeder. Check with the AKC/UKC or Bulldog Club of America to get breeder referrals, and learn about red flags. This is a difficult breed to be breeding, so don't take anything lightly with anyone you look at.
Good luck on your search for a new family member! :D Don't forget about Bulldog Rescues if you don't find a breeder to you liking.
Im a bulldog breeder in Arizona ( American bulldogs ) I just wanted to throw in my two cents...Ya that does very much sound like a scam to me.. When we sale a dog its registered aba and we offer a guarantee in writing and will stand behind it 100% If you cant pay any other way something sounds fishy As a bulldog breeder i know theres many forms of payment that should be accepted... Go find another breeder where you can see the dogs and some paperwork on the dog... at the price of english bulldogs $2,000 + id have to see it first hand myself Theres many health problems to look out for also in that type of bulldog ... If the nose is to short they usually will have a hard time breathing and dont do to well in the heat... Its because their heads are so large and nose to short... They have a soft pallet in their throat that can be removed to make breathing easier and less snoring.. In my opinion you should do your homework before paying that much for a puppy... and do your self a favor lose that breeders phone # and locate another one... Bill Anderson badazzbulldogs of Az
Thanks everyone for your responses. This breeder ran up a lot of red flags for me as well. I've found some breeders closer to home but most are a state awayl We'll try to make a controlled purchase. Thanks Again
