One thing you should know before you get a English Bulldog (I have 2) is that they are very high maintenance dogs healthwise. They have a plethora of special issues that you will have to deal with on a regular basis.

The 2 I have now are very healthy for bulldogs, but I still have issues with allergies (meaning special $$$ food), elongated palates (meaning surgery), entropion (meaning eye surgery) and a host of other problems. They are extremely sensitive to heat and can't swim. You will have to plan on wiping out their facial wrinkles on a daily basis, giving a medicated shampoo 1x per week and putting powder on their feet daily.
My 1rst EBD had a soooo many health problems, I spent a fortune and she died at 5 1/2 years old. I was absolutely devistated. Still I love the breed and wouldn't trade them for the world.
I don't want to dissuade you from getting a bully, I just really wanted you to know what being a bully owner entails. Feel free to send me a message with any questions about the breed that you may have. Depending on where you live I may be able to refer you to a rescue group.

You'll have to pull up online for breeders, shelters or rescues in your area. I do know alot of rescues will not adopt out of area. Best of luck.
