The wife and I want (or maybe need) a dog. She likes little ones, I want a real dog. We have researched, and an english bulldog seems to be the best choice for us.
We realize that a bully is not exactly a little dog. Short, yes, but 50 pounds is not small. Still, everything I have read to date indicates that they are suited for apartment living.
I'm just curious on thoughts from bulldog owners, past and present. What do you think of these guys? Do they work well with apartments? Would you get another, or make the same choice again? Do you have any reason to sway me one way or another? Any special tips on selecting one? Male or female?
If it helps, there are two adults in my household, my wife and I. We live in a pet friendly apartment. We both work day jobs, I am usually able to come home for lunch. We don't plan on children for at least a few years.
Also, I a curious about the purchase. I have found many online sources, but I'd like an outside opinion. We will go to a breeder, not a petstore or mill. What do you feel is a good price, what is to cheap (raising flags) or to expensive? We won't be showing or breeding the dog? Anybody know of good breeders in the Kansas area (we live about an hour west of Topeka)?
Thank you in advance for any feedback, and feel free to PM me if you have any breeder info.
