    I want an English bulldog so fucking bad. I know that they are gross deformities and all but I heard that breeders are trying to reduce their breathing/skin problems through reducing the amount of loose skin and making the underbite less pronounced. No idea if it's true or not but it's what I want to believe. They seem like the best dog out there for me.

    My dude is in my avatar. Atlas, a Boxer I got right after graduation. Best doggo ever.

    I've also got a rescue dog (Theo) who is a mutt of the highest order. He's got husky in him so his coat is thick as balls, but also got the shed genes from one of the other dogs, so he doesn't do the bi-yearly shed huskeys are known for... he just sheds ALL THE TIME. So don't always believe people tell you that purebreds suck and mixes are just better in every way. At least with purebreds you have a sense of what you're getting into (trait wise, personality wise, etc). He's a good boy however.

    We have two cats we got while we were apartment dwellers. I've always been a dog guy, but I enjoyed having animals so I let my wife talk me into cats. I'm sure this wont' be popular with the cat fanciers on this board but if I'm being honest, now that we have the dogs, I'm just done with them . I guess once a dog person, always a dog person. To spite me they will live to be 25. (don't worry, I'm not going to set them lose on the streets, they're here till the end). They are good cats tho. One is a Russian Blue type like the OG KingKat!

    I can't stress this enough. We got the puppy that was running around playing and he is 5 now and no signs of slowing down. Good news is we got a big back yard where he can rip all the time love him just the same though.

    I've got 4 Cockatiels, 2 Pugs and 1 kitty(literally from Nicaragua), should be 4 cats but Coy-wolves and Owls killed 3 of them.

    If you guys are serious about the English Bulldogs, I have a friend who knows a breeder, they seem really nice, always posting on her facebook, etc... just saying.

    Cats do whatever the fuck they want. We're pretty much door service/food servers/bathroom cleaners in their minds.

    Maybe you shouldn't have bought him another because he sounds like an asshole. I can't stand people that choose to own these creatures and then treat them like disposable bugs. The females of many species live longer than cats and dogs FFS.

    He was a kid maybe 17... he loves his pets including them. I was 20 I think, I warned him, they/he peer pressure got to him.

    Edit: Stoners wanted to see me freak out.

    What I was getting at in my post about not getting purebreds was more so pertaining to a very large number of those purebreds being born in and sold from puppy mills, which is the most disgusting practice of dog breeding out there.

    If someone wants a purebred, is willing to shell out the crazy amount of money to get it and the breeder is beyond reproach when it comes to credentials, I have very little problem with that.

    My wife's cousin, who runs the animal shelter in my city, literally just spent like 5,000 importing a Czech Shepherd from Europe, because it was the same bloodline as his previous dog from a breeder that trains dogs to be border control animals.
