When your English bulldogs are actually … Latvian?

Beware of hot links that say “NEW! Click here to see English puppies!” They might actually be Latvian.

Hayward hills bulldog owner Ulla Jensen was apparently one of several people tricked by a Tennessee dealer into buying imported English bulldogs, some with severe health problems, according to a federal indictment and a recent news story.

Reached at her workplace, Jensen said the FBI has asked her not to talk about the case.

But the scam hasn’t dented her love of the bulldog.


Her current dogs Gracie (above, in a bathing suit) and Rocky are the subject of a loving profile by San Jose Mercury News pet blogger Linda Goldston.
