About Our Partnership Program
On occasion we find an exceptional family to adopt, free of charge, one of our puppies with the intent of partnering with RedWhiteandBulldogs. In essence, this partnership allows a loving family to take in a Bulldog puppy as it’s own while still leaving her available to RWB for breeding purposes. RWB realizes with each new addition to it’s already large family of Bulldogs there is less love and attention to go around for it’s existing members. When a partnership of this kind is formed, RWB may more easily continue to provide families with quality, home raised puppies while at the same time not compromising it’s commitment to excellent care and socialization for it’s Bulldogs.
What the adopting family can expect during the breeding process and after the puppies have been born.
- The adopting family will take physical possession of the female, but full ownership of the Bulldog will remain the right of RWB until RWB has finished it’s breeding program with that female. RWB typically stops breeding it’s Bulldogs at or around 4-5 years of age, but this is subject to change. The Bulldog will not be bred by RWB more than 2-3 times. When that time comes, akc registration papers as well as any other applicable documentation will be transferred to the adopting family.
- When the female goes into heat we ask that the adopting family notify RWB as soon as possible. This is crucial At this time the female will be transported back to RWB where she will remain for a period of about 2 weeks for progesterone testing. The burden of transportation lies on the adopting family, but if necessary, other arrangements can certainly be made.
- When testing and breeding has been completed, the adopting family will be requested to retrieve the female and return her back to their home.
- Please let RWB know when you see signs of pregnancy on the female such as a larger stomach or a lesser desire to be active.
- At or around 1 week before the female’s due date, the adopting family will be asked to once again return the female to the breeder so she can more closely be monitored and eventually be taken for her c-section. The start of this day until the female is ready to return with her adopting family could be as long as 2 – 3 months.
- After giving birth, the female and her puppies will remain at RWB until the pups have been weaned and RWB deems her ready to depart. Weaning is usually completed at 6 weeks of age.
- Now that the female has been taken home she will be given ample time to rest before she is bred again. Typically RWB does not breed it’s Bulldogs with every heat cycle, but rather, they skip a heat in between breeding.
General agreement between the breeder (rwb) and the adopting family.
- The adopting family takes responsibility for all routine vet bills except those related to the breeding process. Vet bills that the breeder will not be held responsible for may include and are not limited to, traffic accidents, lacerations, and fees generated if the female should become lost or stolen.
- The breeder is only responsible for bills related to the breeding processes. Some vet bills the breeder is responsible for include progesterone testing, c-section etc. Things like cherry eye or a heart defect are beyond the adopting family’s control and will be the responsibility of RWB.
- RWB holds the right to declare acceptable treatment for all health conditions even denying treatment and/or payment for treatment in the unfortunate event of a life threatening disease or accident.
- The adopting family is responsible for giving excellent attention to the female in regard to her hygiene. Brushing, bathing, cleaning between the facial folds, nail trimming and ear cleaning are just a few important aspects in Bulldog care in which the adopting family will be in charge of.
- The purchasing of food for the female is the responsibility of the adopting family. The family agrees to leave kibble and water accessible to the female at all times unless other agreements are made with consent of the breeder.
- Under no circumstances will any of RWB’s Bulldogs be allowed to enter water that is deeper than that of the Bulldog’s belly for fear of drowning.
- The Bulldog MUST be on a leash at all times when outside unless there is a fenced enclosure to prevent the dog from escape.
- RWB holds the right to remove the Bulldog from the adopting family if at any time the adopting family is found unwilling to follow these guidelines.
