free or a for reasonable price? The inflated prices for pedigrees are ridiculous! My husband loves the breed and wants one badly and I hoped to get one for hum by Valentine's Day, but most ads are asking for over $1000.00 a dog! We dont want to breed it or care about pedigrees, it's going to be fixed and be a pet. I even tried asking for a mixed breed, older dog or contact some rescue organizations and even then the prices were above $500.00!

it is illegal to sell live animals on ebay and for breeders the idea that a person would simply sell a dog to the highest bidder not knowing the type of home they have is a very sad and bad thing .

if you want a pure breed you have to pay for one!!! I am a lover of the St. Bernard breed, and findong one under $1,000 is almost inpossible. You can try petfinder.com, they have good dogs there, but they are high priced. But you get great dogs!!! They are gauranteed from breed diseases and other problems. If you already went to the shelters and that, and they don't have one, find another breed. Sometimes mutts make the best pets!!!

That is a really expensive breed! I searched for you on puppyfind.com and saw a female puppy born 10-28-06 on there that was only $400 and that includes shipping. The breeder with that puppy is in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Their phone number is 305-581-6295 Good Luck!

I don't think you well find a pure breed bull dog for less then 1000. The breed requires alot of care not a easy breed to own or breed . They not only can not give natural birth all are done by c section a c section it's self can run around 800 or more in some areas of the country and they require x rays be took on top of that .Also they don't breed natural either they are breed by AI so you have to count about 300 or so dollars on there as well . As you can see the breed is NOT cheap to breed and the breeders have to pass the charge to the pet buyers . Rescues have to deal with the health issues of the dogs they place bull dogs can have a few health issues that require to be taken care of before the dog is placed .I really don't think you well find a cheap bull dog you might but it might cost you in the long run aka have health or behavor issues .
