We have a four year old English Bulldog (Sir Winston Oliver Campbell of Stongate) whose eating habits have become increasingly harder to meet. My husband has spoiled him just a bit and now all he'll eat is pure liver. If I grind it up and mix it with veggies he'll go hungry first. I am concerned about his health as I am sure a pure protein diet is not good for him. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did they over come it? I love this dog!

So your letting this dog dictate to you! He will quickly become deficient in important vitamins and minerals if fed a liver only diet. I'd set down his proper dog ration and don't worry if he doesn't eat it. He figures you'll cave in and give him what he wants so of course he won't touch it. Let him go a few days if necessary. He won't starve. Just make sure he has plenty of fresh water.

I vote with takelbaby. You've got to do what is best for the dog, not what the dog wants. If you had a child who only wanted cake for every meal you would dream of giving in. As long as you allow this dog to be the head of the house he'll do it.

Yeah I agree also, he's not gonna starve his self, but I know how we love them dogs like our kids. Have you tried slowly mixing a little can dog food in with his liver slowly over the next few days or so? Good Luck.

All 3 of these responses are right on the money. The hardest part is YOUR part. Just remember, animals have an extremely high survival mode in them. They will only let their stubbornness dictate them so long, and then they wiill do what is necessary to survive.

Dogs' systems are not designed like ours tho, and people food is not good for them. An occasional small treat (mine get a small people treat MAYBE once or twice a month) won't hurt them. But it sounds like yours needs to come COMPLETELY off of any kind of people treat at all for about 6 months till he gets the idea that you aren't going to submit to his sad eyes.
Another thing, it is possible to train them to clean up their own food bowls before you'll give them a treat of any kind. Mine will ask, but if I look at their bowls and there's food in them (mine have dry down 24/7), I tell them "Nope, go eat your food". And they do. This holds true for people treats or doggy treats, including rawhides.

LIver is not only pure protein, it's got a toxic amount of Vitamin A. Your dog is just not hungry enough, so withhold food until his appetite is normal.

Bashful is a 10 month old English Bulldog. After weeks of looking for the right puppy, Bashful came to us through a fellow friend. It was one of those rare but special coincidences.

Bash loves to play with other neighborhood dogs and chew on his favorite stuffed animal. He also has a lazy side, which includes sleeping anywhere and in any position, haha. Bash is sweet and loving!

Our English Bulldog, Gus, was looking way too handsome to get in trouble for breaking through the screen door.

Gus is 3 years old. Gus flew all the way to the US from Ukraine 3 years ago when he was a puppy. He likes to pass gas, snore and eat.

Your Pet's Breed
English Bulldog

How and when did you get your pet?
I rescued Kira last year from an abusive home. She was kept in a kennel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and was not fed adequately because her owners didn't want to clean her mess.

What does your pet like to do for fun?
Snuggle in bed and go on rides.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
Kira is one of the best dogs I have ever had. She lives on a ranch with me and enjoys being a country pooch.

Lucille is 2 year old English Bulldog. Lucy was stuck in a puppy mill here in Ohio. Her breeder was breeding about 8 different breeds and it was just horrific. I drove 3 hours on a Sunday night to almost West Virginia. The moment I laid eyes on her, I knew I was in love and would do any thing to get her out of that place.

She is the best friend I have ever had and is my reason for living and she has actually saved my life. Lucy loves to go for rides in our VW bug convertible. She has a baby car seat and always rides shot gun, and we go for a cheeseburger at the golden arches and she is in heaven.

She and I went to put in bay this summer and she got to ride on a ferry boat and loved it. She also adores her babies and sucks on them like they are a pacifier when its time for nighty night. She will stare at me and moan to get her jammies on and get in the bed. She also drags her blanket around like she is Linus, it cracks me up. She is also the star of my you tube channel, mypinkrainbow. Come and say hi to her. One last thing, her nick name is roo roo like roo from winnie the poo.

Lucille is very intuitive to my health and she never lets me out of her sight, she goes everywhere with me and has a service dog certification so that we do not encounter any issues. She loves to go to the hospital and see the people and kids, and she rides in her stroller sometimes, cuz bully's get out of breath.
