Great dogs!

However make sure you get Pet insurance. I bought mine four years ago. I spent 5k in Vet bills the first month. Since then it hasn't been too bad. They do shed like crazy. Clean their wrinkles and ears at least every few days.

Mine has never shown any sign of aggression at all. I would suggest getting some books too to help you when they are puppies.

Also their ability to attract chicks is second to none.

Good luck!

 They can be great dogs if you dont mind the constant snoring even when they are not sleeping. They also due to the breathing issues tend to be VERY prone to gas and tend to be kinda stinky, cleaning the wrinkles helps with being stinky. Every bulldog I have ever met is absolutely hillarious personality wise. But overall as a breed they are very prone to a ton of health issues. Pet health insurance for them is a MUST.

They are awesome dogs. Best advice is pet insurance and do research. Ensure the breeders do a ton of health screening. Phone Post 3.0
