    Hi Celene, I know it is disappointing when you have you mind set on something only to find it is out of your price range. I would think very carefully about trying to go for a cheaper option, a bagain is not always what it seems, ask yourself if the pups are half the going rate, why ? Bullyb explains the cost of raising a bulldog litter in a thread under breeding, entitled bull dog breeder.
    Nicci has given you a good link above, well worth looking into.

    Be carefull also there was someone on here the other day who had had 3 of her litter of bulldogs stollen out of her home they were only after the pups as other things of value were left ,so the thing is if someone is selling without papers or being able to see mom with the pups or on the cheap you have to ask yourself WHY !!!! But good luck with your search maybe wait till xmas and have your birthday pressie and xmas pressie rolled in to one .

    I have three Olde Tymes, and certainly wouldn't lead people into thinking that they are the 'healthier' option, owned these dogs for quite a few years now and know some Olde Tymes can have all sorts of medical problems, from Deafness, to hip dysplasia and in certain lines Wobblers Syndrome! I would advise anyone looking into the Olde Tyme Bulldog to do lots of research, speak to lots of people/breeders and not just those whom have been with the breed for just a couple of years, but those that have been into these dogs since the early 1980's. A well bred Olde Tyme does cost more than £700, I paid more than that for my oldest Olde Tyme and he's almost six years old.
