Hi all I've just joined this forum and hoping you could all give me some advice. My husband and I have decided we would like to get a puppy. We have never had a dog in our own house although we both grew up living with dogs so we are both beginners buying and looking after puppies and dogs ourselves. We both like the look of bulldogs and we have bought books and have been looking on the net for advice but there are so many conflicting reports on there that we are both confused on weather the bulldog is ideal for new dog owners. We also have two young children a little boy who is 5 and my youngest who is 2. Please could somebody give us some advice on weather a bulldog would make an ideal pet for our family and if not any breeds that may be more suitable. Thank you for any advice you can give as it is so important for us to make the best choice both for us and for any dog or puppy that may come to live with us and we want to be sure we have all the right advice and infomation before hand.
