My husband and I are looking into getting a french bulldog and have spent months researching. We would like to welcome one into our home in July as we are traveling up until then and I am off in the summers and would have a lot of time to get to know him/her. We have been overwhelmed with the process of finding a breeder, particularly, because there don't seem to be many breeders in our area, NJ, (although we are willing to drive a couple of hours). We feel hesitant about getting a puppy that will need to be shipped to us (something doesn't sit right with us about not meeting the puppy first). But, if anyone has thoughts on this, please share - this would really open up our possibilities. So...advice on acquiring a Frenchie when the timing of it is a large factor. Thanks!
