How to choose a healthy English bulldog puppy

You are finally ready for a companion or a family pet English bulldog puppy. You already made the decisions on whether you want a dog ,male or female, . Now you are looking for just the right animal. Do you know what to look for in a healthy English bulldog?

What type of disposition will fit your lifestyle? Your final decision will probably be one of the heart, but I can give you some suggestions to guide you as far as health and temperament on an English bulldog.

Age and disposition

The best age at which to buy an English bulldog puppy is from eight weeks of age to 16 weeks fo age. They have become self-reliant, but are still impressionable. It is also a good time to establish some bonds of affection and begin training. The young bulldog puppy learns rules of behavior and how to relate to others from his littermates and his mother’s reactions. The overly aggressive pup will probably be aggressive as an older dog; the withdrawn, inactive bulldog puppy will probably remain timid. Although care, feeding, and socialization of a bulldog puppy after purchase are very important, you can determine much from their behavior at eight weeks of age. Pick a Bulldog puppy that likes to play, is eager for attention, and reacts positively to affection.

The head

Examine the condition of the bulldog puppy. Is the nose cool and damp, or are there signs of a nasal discharge? The gums should be a bright pink; a pale color can mean anemia or a problem with worms. Are the teeth clean and straight? If the upper and lower teeth are undershot or overshot, the problem will not correct itself. Eyes should be bright, clear, and look straight ahead. White spots or visible lines on the surface of the eye can mean problems. Check for redness or inflammation of the third eyelid, or eyelids that roll in or outward. The ear canals should be clean and odor-free. A build-up of wax and dirt, head shaking, or tenderness could indicate ear mites or infection.
