I met this new Bulldog bulldog breeder the other day. He purchases his dogs from overseas. His male pup was very geogeous and he is getting him ready for show. But the pup is sick with pneumonia and was coughing up green mucus. Then he preceeded to tell me about his females and all their complications like cherry eye, colds etc. These guys live outside in his backyard in pens. We live in California (in the valley) and our summers are extremly hot. I worry about these dogs and this new breeder. He also told me that he only purchases dogs that can whelp on thier own and will deliver thier own pups. His vet is going to let them labor and if complications Adminse then and only then will a cesarean be done. Is this normal in the bulldog world? I have rarely came across bulldogs that breed/deliver on their own. Also, could these dogs be getting sick because of the change in environment. I know one came from Russia and one Lithiuania (not sure if spelled right)? I know this breeder will probably stumble across this posting but I would like to get a feel from others out there on what they think. He recently registered with AKC as a breeder and belongs to many clubs and organizations. But something seems not right, and I feel like people should be aware of shady breeders. If you want to know the name of his company you can email me.
