Quality isn’t cheap and cheap isn’t quality!
Did you know: French bulldogs do not breed naturally?
You pay for semen unless you have an in house stud and we know we get what we pay for! And even with "in a house stud" you have to hand collect him and artificially inseminate her. By inseminating I mean-you have to know EXACTLY what are you doing, otherwise, you will thoroughly penetrate internal organs of your bitch through and through and may kill her. That testing must be done to determine breeding times and date for possible c section you can repeat 1-5 times to determine this at $130 each. Most breeders confirm via ultrasound and / or x-ray. That health testing is a significant cost. That bulldog whelpers are up 24/7 for the first three weeks.
French Bulldogs must have c sections which vary in cost! Prices can be as high as $3500. French Bulldog moms are not left alone with their babies unless supervised as they can inadvertently smother them. Bulldogs are supported with expensive equipment such a incubators, oxygen concentrators, nebulizers, suction devices, progesterone machines, and ultrasound machines. Moms go home on antibiotics and pain meds and often puppies are sent home with antibiotics. Your breeder may have to administer IV fluids, colostrum, and may have to bottle feed or supplement through tube or sponge feeding. They may provide nebulizer treatments for respiratory issues. Your breeder is on lock down for the first three weeks. Your breeder does not allow visitors because breeders have been killed, you can bring parvovirus into their house which could wipe out litters. Your breeder loves and takes care of your puppy and wants a home for them that is financially secure as they want their puppies to receive all the care they need. Thus all the questions. Did you know that for every person that buys a bulldog your breeder has touched base with 20 other folks who have no intention or means to buy a puppy. Did you know your breeder does endless loads of laundry a day! Cleans puppy areas etc to keep your puppy healthy. Did you know your breeder has researched the breed and spent hours, days, months, and years trying to be give you the perfect puppy? This includes evaluating vets, studs, etc. Did you know that your breeder has a plan A, B and C for every birth? Did you know your breeder hand delivers many puppies door-to-door or works with a puppy nanny (a special person to fly with your puppy and hand deliver for your Breeder) to get your puppy to you? Did you know you breeder considers no question dumb and is available for a life time of support? Did you know this is not a get rich quick scheme! Puppies die and we mourn the loss of everyone Your breeder is offended when you ask for a $1000 puppy! And should be!
