If the $2k price tag worries you... EBD is not the dog for you. We've had almost a dozen in our family. They are wonderful funny dogs with the best personality... But they require a special owner who understands that vet bills are probably going to be a significant part of the ownership experience (note that I said probably, I realize that somebody had a brother who dated a girl who worked for a guy that had a bulldog that was 28 years old with no health problems). That having been said... If you avoid the typical EBD pitfall of letting them get fat because "it's cute" you will drastically reduce the potential breathing/hip/joint problems that plague the breed.
