    DefaultNLR - For those BYBreeders who think "Just one litter!"

    I've just heard from a co-trainer in our obed classes. She's quickly making a name for herself on the East Coast as one of the premier breeders of French Bulldogs.

    About six weeks ago, one of her females whelped a litter -- and passed away in the process. Not sure what all the details were, but there was a lot of trouble and the vets scrambled and the girl was lost.

    Six pups survived; however, there were significant problems with them internally. They looked fine, but over the ensuing six weeks of their short lives, they passed away in relative quick succession. Seizures etc. and then they were gone.

    Our friend is undestandably heartbroken and will probably wait a good long while before breeding anything to anything again -- and she's a pro. Imagine the horror, folks, of BYB's who think this would be a 'cool' thing for their kids to experience. Her kids are now bereft over the loss of an entire line of good dogs. And what about those who want to make hard-cold cash on these litters? She's now up to her eyeballs in vet bills and has not a single salable dog left.

    So very, very sad....

    RIP, Rosie and your cute, brindled litter. May you mother them forever at the bridge.......

    Not necessarily.* Some bitches can free whelp, but it is less and less common.* English bulldogs are almost exclusively C-section.* With Boston Terriers there is a risk for a C-section, but many can be free whelped.* I would think it is about the same with Frenchies.* To preserve the (large) skull shape and size, c-sections are becoming preferred for many of the bulldoggy breeds.*

    Frenchies are often prone to even more health problems than BTs.* That is so sad, dweck.* With breeds like Frenchies there is always, sadly, a huge "what if".* I love my babies too much to think about what might happen on a gamble for pups.* There is a much greater risk with these dogs than with more common free whelpers like labs.
