If you are a fan of the English Bulldog, either because you are a Marine or you just love the breed's appearance, you have probably been searching for a puppy locally without a great deal of success. It makes sense to take your search online to puppyfind.com. However, finally finding English Bulldog puppies for sale is only the first obstacle.
Once you find your puppy, you may have to wait a bit to get it home. Airlines limit shipping on all breeds during the hottest times of the year for their safety. So, even if you were planning to ship in a Pointer, you'd be out of luck in July.
With their squashed in noses, Bulldogs have trouble breathing even when it isn't hot, which means that airlines usually limit the times this breed can be shipped even further. Don't be surprised if you call your airline to check on shipping, only to be informed that you can only ship your puppy during a few months of the year. While this may seem silly to you, it is really a necessary delay because of the unique way Bulldogs are built.
While you may be tempted to get around the problem by shipping your dog by truck, you really shouldn't use this option unless you find a service that will pick up your puppy from the breeder and take it directly to your front door. The stress of waiting through 20 or more other puppy pickups and deliveries could really be bad for this breed.
