    Think about the best dogs you ever had. How did you come by them? The best dogs I ever had were given to me by their breeder! Deal was if I did not like them or could not keep them for what ever reason they went back to the breeder. Most all (except for 1) the dogs I ever paid good money for turned out to be junk! LOL !!! I bred a couple of good dogs that I liked a lot but was never in the position to be a large scale breeder w/ enough time and space to be able to build up my own line. How about you ?

    I've had some good ones given to me and placed with me. I've purchased some as well.

    Keystone - I've only been with this breed for just over thirty five years and still learning. Had as many as 17 dogs and as few as 1. The breeders that gave me dogs/pups I knew well and knew their dogs. The dogs I bought were mainly in the begining of my years w/ bulldogs and I went on what others said about their dogs and the pedigrees. Your last question(s) I'm not sure how to answer? An OK deal is a breeder standing behind their dogs and me standing on my word to that breeder. I guess if I had foreknowledge of what was junk and what wasn't I wouldn't have gotten them. I do however have 20/20 hindsight and tried to learn from my mistakes.

    OLDDOG, good answer. An OK deal is a breeder standing behind their dogs and me standing on my word to that breeder.

    As for me the best dogs I've had were given to me. All those I've bought with the exception of my youngin I have now are no longer. Luckily I haven't spent much $ on dogs @ all & nothing over $500 either. I've been blessed to have contacts that either Give me dogs or are willing to let me take charge of them. Now that I have my litter I hope to not have to spend $ again. But we all know that's not a reality. lol

    I think Young Muscle made the right differential. I've had more than a few that happened to overcome odds to accomplish what they did, and those that were keepers and produced their asses off. Favorites and best can also, often be the same dogs.

    True, Speedo. But that saying, IMO should be extended with "But you are more likely to find them in some places than in others." LOL

    Best dog I ever owned was a gift given to me after J of strictly biz couldn't keep him. Best bitch I ever owned I bought as a grown dog for a reasonable price.

    Best dog I ever owned I paid $400.00. He turned out to be an "ace" said by some, and produced very well. I have spent upwards of 2k to get garbage. I probably will never own another dog that doesn't have my 400.00 dog in the pedigree or a relative at the very least.

    Yes you will. A relative, at least. That's a promise.
