Now I think your just trying to be hard headed. No one ever said don't socialize your dog. I have just said in every one of my posts that a bulldog should never be off leash when not on your o ( or some friends ) private property.
And yeah your dog is a little young if you can remember i love to know how the same two dogs you talked about today get along 2 years from now.
You can be safe with your dog and respect the history or you can be irresponsible and add to the negative stereo types. With that being said I don't look to argue with folks on forums I think you may have missed some things I said I never said do not socialize your dogs... You should just do so in a controlled environment, not at the park or the lake or what ever public place. No need to get defensive.
Just curious How is this pup bred? If you don't mind me asking.
