>>"Is it possible to get a bulldog that isn't bread that way? What I'm asking is if you can get one that doesn't have all of the problems."
Best advice would be to research not only the breed, but the breeders. The better the breeder, the better the overall quality and health of the dog will be. But, no, you cant get one that will not potentially have some of these problems.....unless you go for the american bulldog.....they arent as wrinkly, and their faces arent so smooshed.....they are also a bit taller....not so "squatty".....the american is where the english breed originated from in my understanding. (I may be wrong....could be the "old" english bulldog Im thinking about),.... anyway,They just kept taking "abnormalities" that they found appealing and breeding them into the dog until they came up with the english bulldog.....sadly, no one took into concideration the health of the breed in doing this. It is sad, and they do not live the best "quality" of life because of this. But , they are soooo cute, and thew sweetest things in the world!
