Shrinkabulls — bad genetics in breeding
I bought a beautiful rare tri color english bulldog and it cost me almost $15, 000 and it died of genetic issues at 2 years old. I was heartbroken when it arrived with pneumonia and I took care of him for 3 months and took him to get blood tests and x-rays every week until he was well and free of pneumonia. That cost me over $2000 dollars and that was not the end of his health issues. He had an elongated soft palate. Interdigits, inverted laryngeal saccules, stenotic nares. If you are thinking of buying a dog from shrinkabulls... Dont unless you can spend $35, 000 and up because those are the only dogs that they really take care of. I also bought another english bulldog and he was 1 1/2 months older than stitch and he was abused by whoever was taking care of him and had inverted legs and petrified of everything when he arrived. The people representing shrinkabulls hire nannies to take care of their litters and depending on how much the dogs are worth, is whether they give them the proper care or not so if you dont have $35, 000 to spend on a dog, do not do it because they are a puppy mill & are very friendly until you have a problem. I spend over $20, 000 on my beautiful stitch, in order to try to save his life and because of all his genetic problems, he died on february 19th and was only 2 years old. My heart is still broken and I still cry for him and I believed that shrunkabulls was a reputable breeder but when you do intense research, they are not even classified as a breeder but as a hobbyist and that is how they get away with selling unsuspecting buyers a defective dog and then have no consequences. The healthy dogs are given to celebrities that pay over $35, 000 and they do that so they do not get sued and get bad publicity but they do not care about regular folks that fall in love with their pet and lose them because of bad genetic breeding!!! All I can say is... Buyer beware!!!
