The second straight premature death of an Uga mascot, this one after serving just six games, has prompted a lot of discussion both inside and outside the Bulldog Nation about what’s wrong with Sonny Seiler’s proud line of all-white English bulldogs.

The ebenbullies dot com web site is a fraudulent English Bulldog web site and should be avoided. They are using the family photo from the reputable Puppychase Kennels as “their family photo.”  This is an exact replica of the elibulldogpups dot com web site.  The owner of the elibulldogpups dot com (email is info@elibulldogpups.com) refuses to remove the photo, saying it is theirs and that the site is mirrored on over 60 servers – if that isn’t enough evidence of a scam, I don’t know what it!  Also the web domain edenbulldogpuppies redirects to the elibulldogpups web site.

Please visit Puppychase Kennels Beware of Fraudulent Breeders page to see a list of known fraudulent bulldog sites using Puppychase photos and information. If you come across an English Bulldog scam, please email webmaster@puppychase.com so it can be added to their list.

Finding a Quality English Bulldog Breeder January 29, 2011

You have your heart set on a cute, wrinkly little English bulldog puppy, so where do you begin?

Quality bred English Bulldog puppies are not cheap and breeders should be researched thoroughly before a decision is made. If you were looking to purchase a television that costs from $2,200 to $4,500, you would do a bit of research first. You would read reviews, ask questions and compare different brands.  It is no different when looking to purchase an English Bulldog puppy.

If you have local bulldog breeders, it makes sense to start with them since you can easily visit their kennel or home and meet the dogs in person. However, your local breeders may not have an available litter, may offer bloodlines you don’t want or have a long waiting list. In this case, the next step would be to look further afield.

The Internet definitely makes searching for a bulldog puppy easier, however, it also increases the chance of coming across uncaring breeders or outright scammers. While this seems daunting, there are some common sense rules you can follow that can make your search for the right English Bulldog puppy successful.

Do not base your decision on picking the lowest priced puppy you can find. It is an expensive proposition to breed English Bulldogs as most bitches must deliver puppies via caesarean section. Also, around the clock care is needed during the early weeks as the mother can roll on top of the puppies and suffocate them. Scammers try to attract buyers by stealing photos from reputable breeders and attaching a very low price tag. Remember, you will get what you pay for, which in some cases may be nothing at all.

Ask questions! English Bulldog breeders that are passionate about what they do will expect you to ask a lot of questions. On the other hand, they will also ask you questions and discuss the “ins and outs” of raising an English Bulldog puppy. A knowledgeable and caring breeder will want to make sure their puppy goes to a loving home with owners who understand the special concerns of the English Bulldog breed.

Look for a breeder that does not just focus on breeding for the “bulldog standard.” A responsible breeder will also breed for health and temperament and not just conformation.  Make sure you ask about the genetic backgrounds of the parents, any health guarantees offered and which initial health care measures will be included (shots, worming, etc.) .  Also, make sure that they will are willing to stay in contact and provide lifetime support .

Try to find customers who have purchased an English Bulldog puppy from the breeder. Honest breeders will readily provide contact information for past customers and likely post testimonials on their web site. But perhaps one of the best methods is to check out the Facebook page of the breeder, if they have one available. On Facebook,  many customers will comment and post photos and videos of the puppies they bought from the breeder.

One last piece of advice is to take your time when choosing a breeder from which to purchase your English Bulldog puppy. Don’t get “bullied” into buying if you are not sure the match is right for you. An honest breeder will appreciate that you are committed to making sure the puppy you choose is the one of your dreams!
