Hi everyone!

I am very interested in getting a Valley Bulldog puppy. The only breeder I have found is Emerald Coast Bulldogs located in Loxley, Alabama.

I want to be sure that I am getting a healthy puppy from an honest, responsible, and reputable breeder.

Any thoughts, opinions, or information will be very much appreciated!

Thanks so much!!!

In addition...

Also, if anyone knows of other Valley Bulldog Breeders in the Southeast, I would love to hear about them!

Thanks again!

Go to IOEBA.net , then go to registered kennels, there will be listings of various kennels, the state they are in, and what they breed. There are some valley bulldog breeders there.

Thanks...

I did check there, but it looks like the only "Valley" Bulldog breeders in the SE was Emerald Coast. All of the rest were Olde English.

From the research I've done, it sounds like an Olde English Bulldog mated with a Boxer is NOT the same as a Valley Bulldog...is this right?

So what would these dogs be called... part OEB/part Boxer... so are they technically "mutts?"

An OEB X boxer is a mutt. I thought that Rio Bravo bred Valley's also?? Maybe I am wrong. Let me go look and I will get back to you.

I like the Valley Bulldog because, from my research, it seems that they do not have a lot of the health problems that EBs or OEBs have.

Because they have the boxer bred into them, they are a little more energetic, do not have the breathing problems (because their snouts aren't as "pushed in"), and are a different size.

I really like characteristics of both the boxer and the OEB/EB, so I thought that a "mix" of both would be perfect for me. And it seems as though the Valley is that dog.

(Plus, the Valley's apparently don't drool as much as the EB, which also is a plus to me!!) :eek:

Ok I have no advice for you lol but I can tell you that the valley bulldog is does not have a "set" standard so you could easily get one that looks more like an EB or OEB with the short snouts!! f you look at there "standard" you'll see there is quite a range in size, weight ect.

If you find a good breeder, the OEB's do not have the problems like the EB's. OEB's are just as energetic as the Valley's, believe me, I have two! The most important thing is to find a GOOD breeder! Good luck in whichever you choose. :D

My boxer is 3 years old, and luckily, knock on wood, she's never had any issues. The only problem she has is right at the beginning of spring, when everything is starting to bloom, she gets a mild case of allergies, and I have to give her benadryl, but other than that she's been perfectly healthy! :D

My boxer is almost 3 as well and to date is healthy and such but with boxers in general, they can have problems with blindness and deafness (especially the white boxers) and then they tend to be prone to cancer as well as hip displaysia because of the larger breeds. When searching you want to look for a dog that has had eyes and hips cleared as well as they have been checked for heart murmurs... I am not too familiar with EB's and OEB's but this is what I know about the boxers

Everything ive heard is OEBs have litte health issues, and you would have alot easier time finding a good OEB or AB breeder then a valley. My boxer is going on 7 years and has only been to the vet for regular check ups and one time after he got attacked by the neighbors dog.

My Valley "Chopper" is registered IOEBA and CKC. Chopper has never has any health issues fortunately. He is 5yrs coming in Aug and very active.
He does not drool unles you have a hersheys kiss. Ha! They are great dogs. Very smart and loving.
Chopper came from Dogbluff Bulldogges line, by Angela Roberts. She has been raising Valleys for at least 13 years. Check out her website at http://bulldogges.tripod.com You will see Chopper there also.
Good luck in finding your Valley baby.
