Bulldog x Shih Tzu puppies
Living with a bulldog can be very rewarding, but you must be committed to meet its particular needs. As with other pedigree dogs, bulldogs require careful attention to their emotional and physical needs. In order to have a happy, productive, active and healthy bulldog, as an owner, you need to be aware of the various health problems it might face, as well as be alert enough to notice any sudden physical changes.
Here are the major bulldog health problems:
1. Brachycephalic Syndrome
This syndrome is often found among dogs with a short nose, like pekingese, pugs etc. It refers to a health condition that makes it difficult for the dog to breathe, especially after physical exertion or being exposed to heat. This medical condition can lead to suffocation, therefore, never let your bulldog become too exhausted or overheated.
The symptoms of Brachycephalic Syndrome include: sensitivity to heat, frequent vomiting, too much of snoring, and difficulty in normal breathing, post exercising. If the dog suffers from it, it probably has it since its birth, since it is an anatomical abnormality. However, cures can be found for it (like oxygen therapy).
2. Hip Dysplasia
Hip dysplasia is a degenerative joint disease found in dogs, cats and even humans! It can be found in all dog breeds but is mostly found in large breeds such as bulldogs. The most obvious way to find out if your dog has this disease is to carefully notice the way he walks. If he walks with a ‘bunny hop’ or looks uncomfortable while walking or running, you may want to have him examined by your vet. A good option to take, is to do x-rays on your dog’s legs.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce sufficient amount of hormones. This can lead to hair loss, weight gain, low energy levels, sensitivity to cold environment, antisocial/behavior problems and excessive shedding. These symptoms are easy to recognize and a blood test can clear all the doubts. This is among the simplest diseases, since it can be dealt with a daily pill, which must be taken by your dog for the rest of its life.

6 puppies abandoned in Ohio suitcase
TOLEDO, Ohio - An Ohio man accused of zipping six bulldog-mix puppies into a suitcase and leaving it next to a trash bin might have gotten away with it if he had remembered to remove the luggage tag bearing his contact information, authorities said Wednesday.
A Toledo Area Humane Society officer filed two misdemeanor charges of abandoning animals ...nd had not abandoned them, Dinon said.
The puppies were in good shape so must have been found shortly after they were left, Dinon said. The mother was a bit thin, he said, but that's not unusual for a dog nursing puppies.
The dogs will be sent to a foster home until they are ready for adoption.
Davis is scheduled to appear in Toledo Municipal Court on April 13.

"Fans send me things all the time — I've had sweets and bracelets and someone once bought me a French Bulldog, but I had to turn that one down because my mum, whose business is making cakes, can't have dogs in the house.
