Hello All,

I have been doing a lot of research on English Bulldogs, as my fiance & I are going to pick up our sweet boy, Lester, in 2 weeks from a breeder in upstate New York. I was wondering if anyone has a checklist of supplies / preparation before bringing home a new bully puppy.

I've been surfing this forum all day & have acquired so much information already.

Thanks!

Oh he's so cute. And LESTER is an awesome name!

There are some good links and info here http://www.bulldogsworld.com/ specific to EB's. There is a puppy check list too, gotta scroll down to see a list of links.

I don't know what you are going to feed him, but there is a recent thread that this link was given http://www.bulldogbreeds.com/discuss/viewtopic.php?t=12569&highlight= and it is AWESOME for reviewing the different foods.

The standing rule here is lots of pics!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

We can't wait to see him, and welcome!

WELCOME! Lester is a cutie and his name is awesome too! I htink one of the most important thing for any new dog is a good food...bully breeds are known for digestion issues (seriously, they have the most obnoxious gas! blech!) and good food can help elminate those problems as well as skin issues (also common to bully breeds). Check out the food link CowBella posted. Also, find out what food he's on now, so you can be sure to have a bag of that and do a gradual switch if you decide to change his food (the breeder may have him on a great food already). Puppies LOVE to chew, so having a few different kinds of chew toys is a must. A favorite of many dogs is a Kong...they come in different sizes and you can stuff them with treats, peanut butter, etc...it keeps them busy and satisfies their need to chew. A crate is a good idea as well...get one appropriate for his size, or one that can have a divider, so it's not too big for him (they're more liekly to soil in their crate if it's too big). A crate will give him a place to call his own and keep him out of trouble when you aren't home or can't supervise him 100%.

Good luck and PLEASE post pics when you bring him home...we LOVE puppies and the natives get restless when they haven't gotten enough puppy pics

:wink:
