just today my 4 month female, unspayed American Bulldog has been having a hard time urinating. although she tries multiple times, she has only alittle if any to give. i have noticed some mucus(?) around her vagina also. like i said she is trying like crazy, every 30 seconds when we are outside. is this something normal for a young puppy?

Not normal, no...sounds like she might have a urinary tract infection, 1ironwarrior. Time for a vet visit.

Poor little girl! UTIs can be miserable! :o I hope she's better soon--and when she is, I hope you'll post some pics! I'll bet she's cute! :D

ironwarrior,yes please,posting pics is easy,I know for a fact we all love American Bulldogs(well,any other breed or mix too)..
Please take her to the vet,if she has UTI,it can be quiet painful.
