    I read this the other day and couldn't believe what I was reading, just was astonished that some people are so money grabbing that they would put animals through that. Poor dogs and poor puppies bred to look like they do. On one photo they look like they're struggling for breath. Trying to scoop air in with their tongues because of the shape of their faces.

    I wonder how many of these poor, deformed dogs were forced to produce the 67 litters in 6 years for these scummy people.

    ETA: What the authorities need to do now is start investigating the network of people involved in this type of breeding, shouldn't be too difficult seeing as most of them are braggarts who post pictures of their dogs (& the material trappings they accumulate from selling said dogs) openly & frequently across social media sites.

    This was in Wales Online a few days ago. They are still active on Facebook and Instagram. So I dont think it's had much of an impact on them at all to be honest!

    They changed their FB page name from Posherbulls to Bulldogs Worldwide or something like that, after loads of people left negative reviews it's now saying they're 'permanently closed'.

    It's also worth reporting their IG account.

    Makes you feel ill just looking at those poor creatures.
    I expect it won't stop them though, far too lucrative.

    Yeah, I reported their IG account but apparently they aren't breaching any guidelines....

    I despise the breeders of these poor dogs with every fibre of my being but why do people keep wanting to buy them?! They are bred purely for financial gain so it will continue for as long as buyers are prepared to pay the crazy amounts for them. And the dogs will continue to suffer

    Am I the only one wondering how many people read this article and think "oh, good way to make some extra cash!"
    Should newspapers really be advertising that people will pay this much stupid money for a particular breed?

    My reaction was more along the lines of finding it unbelievable that anyone would pay £20,000 for any dog. What sort of people? Not the type I mix with.

    Nope, I agree, & I think the punishment is far too lenient, 400k is likely barely a dent in their assets & the moneymakers (ie: the dogs) are still with them & will be recouping those costs in no time.

    To them, the dogs are nothing but 'investments' & the sole purpose is to make money from them, usually as soon as they come into season, I imagine there's a lot of dirty money involved too.

    It's basically MLM with dogs.

    When I think back 40 years,
    my first house , 3 bed semi detached ex social housing, cost £19,500
    £20,000 for a dog seems incredulous.

    Edit to add; said house recently sold (summer '21) for £195,000 plus change

    I think the only other dog I’ve seen going for a similar price was a fully trained sheepdog capable of doing a very important job for the next ten years or so, even then I was open mouthed with shock.
    Our first house (1 bed terraced bungalow) was £6,500 in 1973

    About 10 to 15 years ago you'd have had no difficulty buying a house for £20,000 in some of the more run-down Lancashire mill towns. And I remember a 4 storey house, 5 mins walk from the sea in Morecambe being sold for £6,000 around the same time. It wasn't really habitable, needed about £30,000 spending on it, but even so - a house that size for the price of 2 bulldog pups.

    Good, I hope it hurts having to pay back all that money, it may send a message to other greedy vile people.

    Our first house was in 1976, 3 bedroomed with nice garden and garage, I think it was £7000. If it had been the other side of the river it would have been £10000
