GOOD FOR YOU! They have so many health issues. One article I LOVE to cross is
"Pedi - greed" the defecs we have bred into dogs is criminal. One of those hardest hit is the Olde English Bulldog.
One of my fav breeds, the PUG, is also victim to this. The snout was built close to the head to prevent the bite from the hearding cattle. This facilitates difficulty in breathing and many other facial abnormalities. The short snout is not a 'natural' byproduct, but rather a man-made deficiency.
I rescue genetically defective dogs, a COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE defect ,and am a tad passionate about the ability to PREVENT this defect. With English Bulls, it's more a pig in a poke. You don't know until you know. With my defect, it's a given in 25% of offspring.
I am excited as you are about the outcome, and when I was a child we HAD an olde english bull. So! Looking forward!
Health issues are non-issues on this baord, as you have see!
Me too, google-holic
Love that googler!
