User's Bulldog Shepherd

tebow (Bulldog Shepherd) by Thomas :
My puppy is awesome. His name is Tebow. He is 7 pound's ( I'm American) his mom was a bulldog Shepard, and his dad was mostly lab. I also think he has slight Rottweiler in him from his dad. He is 10 weeks old and amazing

Eddie (Bulldog Shepherd) by Lee Cox:
Eddie is 6 mo. old. We were told he was an English bulldog mix with German Shepherd. They bred him that way on purpose because characteristics and the intelligence of both breeds. Very smart. We have 4 other dogs of different sizes and he thinks there all his best friends even if the small ones don't. He's all puppy play. Very strong, energetic, and as playful as a hyperactive boy. Loves to jump, play tug of war, fetch and brings it back for more. I can already see he's going to be on the larger side. He has all English Bulldog coloring. He seemed to have taken on a lot of German Shepherd Body Lines and yet the sturdiness of a bulldog if that makes any sense. House broke in 3 days. Playing we really didn't have to train, it came naturally. He loves our two year old grandson and doesn't seem to be as rough with him as he is us. He guys play rough with us if you let him and bite your arms and try to snap in a playful way which really has to be dealt with immediately. She sleeps next to me and is very protective and staying very close to me. He loves to digg, chews on branches and rocks, which we still have to try to break him of. My Vining rose bushes seem to be his favorites because he can tug on them. Hence chewing on branches. So far he doesn't seem to bark unless he he's a reason. I'm hoping that stays the same. I truly believe he's going to be a wonderful protective loving grown dog. We have been advised by the to socialize him by taking him to Home Depot or other places like that allow pets on leashes. He takes a lot of time to play with so that he can stay out of trouble and wear him out. That's part of the fun of his personality and breed. All and all I think we made a wonderful Perfect Choice.

Tigerlily (Bulldog Shepherd) by Yolanda McKinney:
We got our American bulldog/German shephard puppy when she was 8 weeks old.Her coloring is Brindle and she kind of looks like a boxer pup. She weighed 12.5 lbs at 9 weeks and 24 lbs at just a week over 3 months. She is very smart and great with my kids! Potty training was very easy and she learned sit,stay,and come very fast. I taught her shake and lay down in 3 days. Walking her has been touch and go...she is very interested in other dogs but gets scared if they bark at her.She has grown alot and my vet thinks that if she keeps going at this rate she may end up being a large breed. She loves to fetch,tug,chew, and run alot! If she gets overexcited she does nip but she is still a puppy and a stern no stops her on the spot.All in all she is an awesome dog and we get compliments all the time on how gorgeous she is.

Mojo (Bulldog Shepherd) by Brittany:
Hi I have a what the vet is estimating a 8-9 week old German shepherd mixed with old English bull dog is what we were told. Mojo weighed 16 at just 7-8 weeks and he goes back to the vet for his follow up shots this week no one can give many any good advice on what to feed him cause his mix is so uncommon no one has ever seen. He's going more and more, he loves to play and chew on his toys and play with his brother (our other dog) he's great with kids and was very easy to potty train and he knows his sit command already as well he's a great puppy I just wish there was more information about him.

Honey (Bulldog Shepherd) by Nancy:
Honey was given to us at 5 weeks of age. I wasn't planning on having another dog, but I didn't want her to end up in the shelter. We had her DNA tested and she came back as a German shepherd/American bulldog mix with some Labrador retriever, golden retriever and Siberian husky! We began training at 12 weeks with a professional trainer. Honey is a sweet natured girl who is very playful and does great with other dogs cats and children. She loves to chew and dig, so we give her lots of exercise like running and frisbee play. She enjoys playing tug too. She tends to be wary of strangers and will bark at them especially when on leash. She is smart and loves learning new tricks. Although we weren't planning on having a 3rd dog, we can't imagine life without honey now! Love our unique little beauty!!
