We welcomed this guy into our home a month ago tomorrow.  His name is Kingston and he came to us from a friend of a friend situation after his first family couldn't care for him anymore.  He had a pretty bad case of dermodex on his hind end, but it is clearing up nicely with meds and twice a week bathings.  Since he came to us as a "teen" (he is almost 17mos old), we are slowly learning his temperment while working on creating good habits.  He is our first bulldog and the second dog to our family after the border collie my husband and I got as almost newlyweds passed a couple years ago.  We are fish out of water with this whole training thing, and the resources here have been a great help already.  I have quite a few books on my TBR list as well.  

This pic was from his first week here and we hadnt trimmed his nails yet.  I'd love to retake it, alas that particular rug has be an outdoors substitute for him on a couple rainy days when he found it more desirable to potty inside and is now banished to the garage under a good soaking of natures miracle.

ETA the rug…not pup

ETA the rug…not pup, regarding the banishment.  He finds the tile a less acceptable substitute and the only carpeted rooms are the upstairs bedrooms and offlimits.

Good luck with the training

remember to keep it fun for the both of you.

Glad to hear that you are not soaking your dog in Natures Miracle in the garage.

Welcome, he's a cutie.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.  He has brightened up our house. I do have to keep reminding the kids that he is OUR dog and does not belong to any specific person.  My 7 yr old begs to differ as they share the month/day for their birthdays.
