Adding What-A-Bully-Bulldogs.com to the bulldog page[edit]

I have been trying to add a link to this page for three days. The link is what - a - bully - bulldogs .com. This website is not just a breeders website. The is a lot of information about the breeding standard and about how to care for bulldogs. The woman who owns What-A-Bully Bulldogs is NOT a commercial breeder. She has maybe one litter a year. She will also give advise to ANYONE who has a bulldog. All they have to do is call or email her. She will help even if the owner of the bulldog did not buy it from her. She will help people find their local Bulldog Club of America. Or if they do not what to buy a dog from her and have it shipped to them, she will help them find a breeder in their area. I have heard a lot of wonderful things about this woman from so many people. Please do not delete this link again.

  • That's nice, but it's not what the 'general information' section is for. It's reserved for websites which offer general Bulldog information ONLY, and not for breeder websites which also happen to have a page or two of breed info stuck on them. Also, Wikipedia has nothing to do with a 'nice breeder' who doesn't mind if people phone or email her. If she creates a web page which is solely devoted to general information on Bulldogs, come back and add it. Frogdogz 09:32, 06 June 2007

Bred to be Deformed[edit]

How about the fact the bulldog in its current force bred and manipulated state is a mess and evil done by dog breeders to get an absurd dog that has been bred to be deformed and the massive amount of problems the enforced changes made over only 50 years has caused. Before then it was not a deformed, genetically inferior or the look the breeders wanted.--Thelawlollol (talk) 07:46, 31 May 2016 (UTC)[]

This fact has been and is being addressed, albeit slowly by kennel associations and breeding associations. Perhaps the way to approach this is by placing the emphasis on the new standards and new guidelines that are coming into place to improve the quality of live of animals and overall health.C. W.

Talk:Bulldog Page Evaluation[edit]

I am posting an evaluation on this article for a class WikiProject. There were a couple facts referenced without a reference, such as the comment made that "They [Bullogs] can become so attached to home and family, that they will not venture out of the yard without a human companion." This claim is not supported by any sources in this article. Also, I felt that the Bulldog as a mascot section was not relevant to the information in the article. Aside from these two critiques I feel this article was informative and gave a neutral point of view on the Bulldog breed. Madison King (talk) 23:24, 23 October 2016 (UTC)[]

It may just be the echo chamber of the web but these sites say the same thing' [1][2][3] My personal experience confirms these observations. C. W. Gilmore (talk) 14:45, 13 October 2017 (UTC)[]

Semi-protected edit request on 26 April 2017[edit]

Breeders should also provide healthy foods such as only dry foods and no treats to avoid complications Eeland3 (talk) 18:49, 26 April 2017 (UTC)[]

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. JTP (talkcontribs) 20:04, 26 April 2017 (UTC)[]
