You will hear puppy millers and other disreputable breeders suggest to you that a pedigree
doesn't matter.  They don't offer to send you your puppies pedigree or maybe they send it and
there are three champions in it.  While I am not suggesting that all bulldogs should be show
dogs and therefore, eventually champions, I do strongly feel that a bulldog's pedigree is a
strong indicator of the future health of your bulldog puppy.  

A bully that can't walk, see, behave (bad temperament) or has a bad coat cannot become a
champion.  The judges go over each bulldog with a fine tooth comb and choose the best.  In
order to become a champion, a bulldog must beat in the ring, fourteen bullies of the same sex
two different times, called a major, and nine other times beat at least two bulldogs of the same
sex. Although there are usually more, this is just the minimum.  Therefore, based on the
number of bulldog champions in the pedigree, you know that for the most part, these bulldogs
were all healthy and good physical specimens of bulldogs.  And, those genetics are passed
down from bulldog to bulldogs and as my Daddy says, "blood will tell."  This is my theory on
bulldogs health.  Although it is not faultless, this is a breed that requires pampering,  it is a
good tool to help with purchasing decisions.  When someone calls about purchasing a bulldog
puppy, this is the advice I give them.  And, as always, Buyer Beware.  Any reputable breeder will
have a good health guarantee.  

I have had lots of people look at puppy mill pups and then mine and say, wow, they don't look
at all alike.  That is the breeding and that is why you will never be embarrassed to show your
bulldog to anyone. My puppies will grow up to look like English bulldogs. :)
