English Bulldog Adoption Process

Through years of experienced we have developed a tried and true adoption process devoted to matching the correct puppy with their adopter family.  We are strong advocates of thoroughly understanding the adopter family dynamic and preferences and guiding each family in the selection process.  Successful adoptions are never accidents and ensuring the bulldog puppy and their family are compatible matches is essential. 

Steps of our adoption process:

1. Verbal Interview – adoption questionnaires have historically been a responsible dog breeder’s “go to” for getting to know a potential adopter.   Over the years, we have found that almost all adopters, both good and bad, know the correct answers to an adopter form.  In reality, effective screenings are much more nuanced than a static form allows for.  For this reason, we believe verbal interaction via a phone conversation really cannot be beat. Potential English Bulldog puppy adopters should expect to talk about work schedule, family/pet structure, and expectations to ensure a Bruiser Bulldog is the best fit for your family.

2. Deposit – We require a non-refundable $500 deposit to join our waiting list for the next English Bulldog puppy available.

3. Selecting your English Bulldog Puppy – Once an adopter has made their way through the waiting list, we will begin the puppy selection process. Prior to the selection, pictures of available English Bulldog puppies with be shared.  We will discuss the personality of each potential puppy in detail via a phone conversation* (details on personality profiling are below), and the strengths and weaknesses of each potential English Bulldog  puppy candidate will be weighed before a selection.  Ultimately, the final decision is made by the adopter family, but we will do our best to provide support and information to help along the way.

*English Bulldog Puppy Personality Profiling – In order to ensure we understand (and correctly match) each bulldog puppy with their correct family we must understand each personality.  We conduct our personality profiling by spending a large amount of time with each puppy and noting both their energy levels and dominance/submissive levels.  This process requires each puppy to be around 4-5 weeks of age before we can confidently profile each puppy’s personality correctly.  Some adopters request (and we deny) to choose their puppy as early as 2 weeks of age.  This selection approach is short sighted and often ends in disaster as the adopter has no idea what kind of English Bulldog they are purchasing before their selection.  

4. English Bulldog Puppy Prep and pickup information

Once we have matched an adopter with their English Bulldog puppy for sale, we will transition to preparing each adopter for their new puppy.  We will coordinate a pickup date and provide the adopter with a puppy supply list that includes all the basics they will need before getting their new English Bulldog puppy!

Bruiser Bulldog’s Reviews

  • I've grown up with english bulldogs my whole life. I am familiar with common and uncommon health problems they may face so when my boyfriend and I decided we were ready to adopt our own english puppy finding a reputable breeder that prioritizes health was most important to us. Erica and Mitch of Bruiser Bulldogs are just that. They are experienced, ethical and quality breeders. I was referred to them by my friend that I trust after I saw their gorgeous healthy puppy. Our Puppy Primrose is the light of our lives! Bruisers was there to assist us every step of the way. We would highly recommend Bruisers Bulldogs to anyone looking for their own happy, healthy pup!

  • We, like many of the other people who found Bruisers, did a lot of research to find a responsible breeder, especially since English Bulldogs can have health issues and because there is a trend now for "trendy" bulldogs (blue, etc.) which have even more health issues. We were lucky to have come across Bruiser Bulldogs and even more so the fact that they were near our family and hometown made it even better. We have had Clementine (Callie) for four months now, and she is a wonderful dog. Her personality is amazing, and I think part of it is breeding and the other part is Erika and her family lovingly raising the puppies in their home with plenty of attention and snuggles. I also was impressed that, rather than send the puppies out right at 8 weeks, Erika kept ours for a few extra weeks because she was tiny and not read to leave her mom yet. It's that care that differentiates Bruisers from other breeders.

  • We found Bruiser Bulldogs after researching healthy breeding line for bulldog puppies. Erica was easy to work with thru the entire process from application to adopting and now beyond as we host our new family member, Chief. Her on-call support and willingness to provide open, honest advice to all of our questions and concerns continues to be appreciated. We would highly recommend Bruiser Bulldogs to anyone looking for an English Bulldog to join their family.

  • Bruiser Bulldogs is a 5-star breeder in every way. Erica and Mitch are trustworthy, excellent communicators, fair, passionate, and produce the best bulldogs.We were at the top of the waiting list for months and Erica reached out every litter to see if we were finally ready for a bulldog. When we were, she was very easy to work with. Her knowledge on bulldogs is outstanding. We had many questions on the process and she always knew what was best for the puppy.We've had Penny (formerly Blair) for two months and she is very healthy, energetic, playful, and sweet. She is great with other people and dogs. We are so happy with our pup.When we are ready for bulldog #2, we will only consider Bruiser Bulldogs.

  • We waited a while to write this review so that we had a better sense for the overall health of our Bruiser Bulldog “Bowser”. Bowser was born April 2020 and is an integral part of our family. When we were first exploring English Bulldog breeders our biggest concern was the overall health of the dogs. We decided to work with Erica at Bruiser Bulldogs because we liked their focus on improving the breeds breathing abilities and the fact that the puppies are raised within her family environment before coming home with their new owners.As for Bowsers health, he’s a health energetic English Bulldog that has no problem keeping up with the kids, going on 2 mi walks and camping with us on a regular basis. Bowser also breaths clearly and our vet was impressed with his overall health from the moment we brought him home. All that said we know English Bulldogs have a predisposition to many health issues and that his current health can not predict the future. With that In mind its important to start with a breeder that open to answer any of your questions as Erica has ours, and that strongly believes in improving the breeds overall health profile.

  • After the loss of our first English Bulldog due to health issues it was very important for us to find a breeder who did not breed only for aesthetic but more importantly for health. My sister ended up finding Bruiser Bulldogs and we knew right away that they were the breeder for us.In September we ended up driving 9 hours to pick up two Bruiser bulldog puppies- one for my husband and I and one for my mom. Jackson and Penelope have been nothing but a joy. They are very social and very friendly to everyone they meet including kids and other dogs/animals. They are both very athletic and healthy. They are also HUGE snugglers and always want to be with you. It is an absolute pleasure having these two bullies in our lives! My sister and her fiancé also fell in love with them and now are on the waitlist themselves for a Bruiser bulldog!Erica is very knowledgeable about the breed. She is very hands on throughout the process and is just overall a kind and honest person to work with.With all that being said I cannot recommend Bruiser Bulldogs enough!

  • We fell in love with our puppy the moment we saw him. One of the reasons we chose Bruiser Bulldogs was due to the claims about breeding for health. During our first visit at our vet's office, he told us that our pup was one of the healthiest English bulldogs he had ever seen. He is healthy, happy and social. Would recommend to anyone.

  • What an awesome experience! We seen our dog on their website and sent them an Email. Mitch called us and personally walked us through the process and made sure we had the right dog for our family. We couldn't be happier when we picked up our dog Ramsey, Erica made sure we had everything we needed and then some. They are truly amazing people who breed truly amazing dogs!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Bruiser Bulldogs are known to be healthy.  As English Bulldog Breeders, how do you breed for a healthier Bulldog?

Like all things in life, breeding for health is simply a matter of priority.  We are blind to many of the breed priorities that distract other bulldog breeders from improving the health of their Bulldog.  We focus on health and personality and very little else.  We are not interested in winning a blue ribbon in the show ring.  Rather, we test for things like elongated soft palates, narrow tracheas, stenotic nares, luxation in the patellar tendons, heart defects, cherry eye, optic cilia, entropion, ect.  We focus and prioritize creating healthy bloodlines, therefore our bulldogs are typically much healthier than the breed as a whole.  While it’s not rocket science, it is a uniquely different take within bulldog breeders and all of our AKC English Bulldog Puppies for sale reflect this value set.

 

After breeding for health, what other priorities are you focused on?

Our true desire is to create the perfect family bulldog.  We believe a healthy bulldog = a happy family.  We also believe a bulldog bred for the correct personality is essential to the family unit as well.  A Bruiser Bulldog is bred for intelligence and playfulness.  We want our bulldogs to be full of personality and some quirk.   We believe a full personality along with a little stubbornness is the true North star of the bulldog breed and is what makes them unique among other breeds. We look for these personality traits in our adult bulldogs and continue to create bloodlines that reflect these qualities and produce high quality English Bulldogs for sale. 

   

I have been looking for English Bulldog Puppies for sale near me.  Where are you located?

We are located in the Northeast corner of Indiana.  We just happen to be about 2.5 hour drive from the Illinois state line and specifically Chicago.  We are also about a 30 minute drive from the Michigan and Ohio state lines.  Other major cities within 2.5 hour driving distance are Indianapolis, Detroit, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland.   If you are looking for an English Bulldog puppy near you and happen to be in one of these areas we are certainly within close proximity.  

 

What if I am not located locally?  Do you offer delivery services?

A large portion of our adopters are located on the East Coast and Southern states.  While many do make the drive to pickup, we also offer a delivery service to those with extremely busy schedules or limited ability to travel.  We personally, hand delivery our AKC bulldogs to our East Coast and Southern adopter’s homes to ensure they arrive safe and stress free.  We also utilize our own flight nanny for our West Coast adopters looking to have their puppy hand delivered.  Whether through pickup or through delivery service, we try to be the type of bulldog breeder that is ethical and responsible to both our bulldogs and adopters.  If you are looking for an AKC English Bulldog for Sale, we have several safe options for delivery.
