I would say depending on the size of the house that sure it can be a form of excersize. If you have a large house that he can run freely. If you feel it isnt enough, take him for a walk atleast once a day. Dont over due it...He is a English bull dog they can be sensitive to extreme heat and cold. Only small walks!

Hi kwillie-I have a male English Bulldog aprox. 1 year old.

They do not require a lot of exersize. Mine too plays with our German Shepherd in the house and back yard. A SHORT walk every other day or so will be more than enough for your pup. Have fun with your baby!! Bullies are the BEST!

I could be wrong but don't believe this is a ligitimate organization.

I went to the web page and they have pure bred English and French bulldog puppies. I don't think anyone would abandon those types of puppies. They are worth way too much money. An English Bulldog pup can go anywhere from $1800-$4000 each.

Also, any reputable rescue organization will not ship English Bulldogs because they have breathing issues. This place says it is in the Philipines. A breeder or broker will ship...not a rescue organization. Do as you please but I would do a lot of research before i sent them any donations. Just my opinion : )

I have two english bulldogs. One boy and one girl, and they are both a year old. The boy will turn two in June, and the girl will be two in November. The great thing about the breed is that it doesn't take much to exert them. One walk around the block and they should be exhausted when they come home. As much as my two bullies play with one another, nothing compares to a nice stroll. Its a consistent excersise because they are continously moving. But like most people I don't do it every day, but often enough and when I have the time. If its nice out or if I notice in the evening they more energetic then I would really like them to be, I take them for a walk. I honestly would reccommend two to three walks a week. That's what me and my fiance do. But sometimes life events come up and they go on the back burner. But that's ok. Just as long as their guts aren't touching the ground, because that's when they can have serious problems with weight.

Also, I bought my puppies and they were shipped to me via plane...and my dogs are wonderful and healthy. There is nothing wrong with shipping dogs. Proffessional breeders are always importing sires from different countries to produce championship breeds, including English Bulldogs because of the cause interbreeding can have on the litters.

Hi Ange-My Bully Tank is 1 1/2 now : ) He was shipped to the breeder then I went and picked him up. The point I was making was that brokers and breeders will ship...not rescue organizations. Any rescue group I have ever had contact with (4)refused to put them on a plane so I thought the above post sounded a little fishy. They could be ligitimate...I don't know.

Another important thing for Bully parents to know...PLEASE do the scratching for them!!! LOL! Because of their compact muscular bodies, the poor things can not bend in half like a typical dog and therefore can't get their mouths on something that itches. My guy can't even get his hind leg up to scratch and he is not over weight at all. Poor things! lol. He will sit there in absolute bliss for hours when we give him his rub downs : ))

I have a question. I have a bulldog and I cant understand why he smells like a mixture between fritos and dirty socks even after you bathe him. 

Name: Dawn C. | Date: Apr 18th, 2007 7:16 AM
LMAO yveeb29!!! OMG...you hit the nail right on the head with that description!

Mine (Tank) gets that way too sometimes. Are you keeping his wrinkles dry? I wipe Tank's face wrinkles with UNSCENTED baby wipes once a day and put CORNSTARCH baby powder on him 2x a week. Try not to bathe your Bully more than once a week. I use an oatmeal base dog shampoo. Try this for a month and if he is still stinky, take him to a vet. He might have a skin allergy that is making him smell ripe. Allergies are common in Bullies and there are meds that will clear him up if that is the case : )

My english bulldog is 5 months old and walks weird. He drags his paws a lot when walking so if he is walking on a hard surface he swings his legs out to the side to avoid this. Is this something I should be concerned with?

Can anyone tell me where I can find a young adult male, already house broken to purchase?

Cj, For a senitive stomach or skin. We use Pro Plan. They have food just for this. You can call them if needed. We have great luck
with this. The food is a salmon formula. good luck to you and any one this helps.

hello! all i have been looking for an english bulldog for my daughter who is going to become a vet. i found an ad on the inter net and found an ad for free bullies. the thing with that is that i want to know if it is safe to send shipping money to this lady who lives in west cameroon her email address is [email protected] she wants me to transfer money to her so she can put the puppy on a plane. we have gotten a boxer shipped to us from breeders direct. which i feel they are not very thorough in researching their breeder and a lot of famous people buy their dog through them. we got our dog very sick. so i have been looking for an english bulldog who is free and i could possible come to pick the puppy up. we are not looking for gain in this we are wanting to love some little baby to call ours. my daughter has always loved the breed and has red up on this breed they take a lot to manage and she is will to give the time. she has been so disappoint in past few months with all these ad for free and they want plane air fare. which i wouldn't have a problem with if i could trust sending my money. if anyone can help us please let us know.
