Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Location: Anna, TX
This girl was born on 11/21/17 so she is about to turn 2 years old. She was advertised as running with male DDB and could be bred. We rescued that male as well. Time will tell if she goes over to maternity manor…

Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue, Ursula!
Let’s talk about Ursula and what we have discovered. She had an exam last week. She is only 2 years old, and yes of course she’s had puppies before, and she is potentially carrying puppies again right now.
Here’s the kicker though she has a bad heart at least a grade 4 to a grade 5 murmur. Dr. Pena examined her and said he could feel it through her chest without even listening with a stethoscope.
She is scheduled for two ultrasounds next week, one on her heart and one on her uterus. We are so hoping there are no Bordeaux babies in there but we will have to wait and see and make decisions from there.
Puppy mills suck and I would like to once again warn the public when you’re buying a purebred puppy you better know where that puppy came from because these people don’t give a damn what conditions their breeding stock have and they just breed them anyway.
After all the public cannot see if a dog has a heart problem that is congenital that she passes on to her pups.
All that matters is that it is a DDB pup and it is sold to the unsuspecting ignorant consumer who needs to know better, but continues to not do better, and buy puppies from places like pet stores and the internet that sells mill puppies.
