This is Jack, my chocolate lab. He will be 7 months old on Dec. 2. We've had him since June. Have to say he's the best dog I've ever had....hope the picture works, I always have trouble with that. Well, I tried 3 times to put his picture here, it wasn't the BEST picture of him, but was the most recent, took it yesterday...but can't seem to get it to work. Take my word for it, he's a good looking dog :)

Got a purebred German Shepherd beginning of September. Here he is the day I brought him home (8 weeks). He is the runt of the litter and was much smaller than the rest of his litter mates.





And here he is about a month ago playing in the leaves. It's crazy how fast he has been growing lately.

He's finally starting to grow into them a bit. For a while he looked pretty ridiculous...

Where did you find this guy? I have been interested in getting a bulldog since I bought my own place 3 or 4 years ago but haven't been actively looking. I get discouraged by the 2k+ price tag.

I looked all over the Great Lakes region for months, I wanted a mostly white one this time (we've had two others, one is 4 now) and I wanted to see the parents. I used SearchTempest.com to look through regional CL ads, I used Google to find puppy ads, I search MLive.com too. If you can find an AKC English Bulldog for less that $1500 then I'd be cautious about the dog's lineage, also it may be from a puppy mill. Look at your local area Bulldog Rescue for older dogs, the older Bulldogs seem to accept new families pretty well and do fine.

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.

Its not necessarily the money up front that worries me it is, like you said, the extra costs associated with them. If you end up with a lemon(which can happen with any breed) it can be devastating to be in the situation where you spend thousands on vet bills or put the dog down. My current dog was free and hasn't been to the vet in about 5 years and is the healthiest 9 year old dog you have ever seen.

After our English Springer passed away last winter it was time this fall for a new puppy.


Lucy will get to about 35 pounds and like 18-20 inches tall at the shoulder.

I am afraid the only manly part of this dog is her Carhartt Coat. She is a labradoodle.

I hope my dog gets big lol. My buddy has a lab and that damn thing is huge not far but just big.
My labs not an akc pup. But personally I'm new to getting a dog. We had a husky got hit by a car when I was young then two labs right after and they both passed away about 2 years ago.

I don't know what makes an Akc dog an Akc dog.
What I'm getting at is what's the difference between an akc dog or a dog where u know both parents are a pure breed?
Like my pup for instance both parents were pure bred black labs?
What's the difference?

I know a few people with Labradoodles and they are not fat and over 50 pounds.

An akc dog has to have so many generations on a pedigree. And the dog must nearly be perfect, coat color, shine, size and weight proportion, stance, no health issues ( teeth, joints.. Ect) lots of stuff lol.
