|Not sure about Canada...but when we were looking for a bulldog puppy, we contacted a local AKC breed-club and they were incredibly helpful.
I can't stress enough the importance of going to a reputable breeder....Watch our for breeders from Russia (or anywhere overseas)...also be very wary of breeder who will "ship" a puppy to you. I have heard horrible stories of excited folks having their hearts broken after receiving a very sick puppy.
Ask the breeder LOTS and LOTS of questions....Expect LOTS and LOTS of question in return from the breeder.
Are your Puppies Registered?
Do you have the litter Registeration forms now?
Do you have a Pedigree available for me to see or have.
How Long have you been breeding Bulldogs? (if only a short period of time, from where or whom did you learn about bulldogs?)
How many litters have you raised?
Are the father or mother on your premises for me to see? (you should see at least the mother)
Have your pups been check for entropian?
Are you a member of any recognized Bulldog clubs?
What food are you feeding the pups?
Where does the breeder keep his Bulldogs, Inspect their living conditions.
Do you have a sales and/or breeders contract?
What type of health guarantee do you offer?
Do you provide some type of "Care Package of Instuctions", to help me care for my new puppy?
How is the puppy being sold, Limited or full registration, and/or a spay/neuter contract?
Do you have a record of the shots, med's, Vet visits, etc., that the pups have had?
These questions should be asked and answered to your satisfaction. The same will apply to the breeders questions to you.
Sorry if I ramble on and on......Please PMail me if you have specific questions.
