Not expecting a Bulldog on the GSD/Basenji website.
Buster is the HEART and SOUL and NAMESAKE of Worrywort Kennels. He is my first dog as an adult.

The day I picked Buster up and took him over to show my mom my new puppy, he was tugging and pulling on my shoelace..."no, no" and he pulled all the harder.  My mom's comment was that I was going to have my hands full with this one.

Buster taught me patience since it took him longer to learn things than my shepherds, he taught me humility since in the obedience ring it looked like dis-obedience and he taught me commitment since no matter what happened, he was there.

He is my ONCE IN A LIFETIME man! 

Buster has excellent OFA health clearances for a Bulldog:http://offa.org/display.html?appnum=819610#animal 
Including being clear of hip and elbow and shoulder dysplasia.
The bulldog breed is about 3/4 dysplastic for hips alone - http://www.offa.org/stats_hip.html

Please choose your breeder of your bulldog carefully.  Bulldogs are not meant to be dysplastic and most breeders do not do ANY health testing of their bulldogs.

Buster does have frozen semen available at the Cleveland ICSB-Ohio.  He was last checked for fertility Summer 2007 (90% motility, 576 million).  His stud fee is my pick puppy from the litter. 

I L-O-V-E this dog and would like to have an offspring from him!!
