Bulldogs & Health

Folks if you are shopping for a puppy the first questions you should be asking the breeder is; What health tests have you done?  They will have certificates from OFA and you can search OFA website yourself.

Then you should go to the BCA (Bulldog Club of America) website and read all you can about Bulldogs.

If the breeder isn't testing, then find another breeder. All breeders should be showing a commitment to breeding to the breed standard, temperment &  health, not $$$.  If you hear these words;  Oh thats normal for the breed.....FIND A NEW BREEDER!
