Congratulations to Sara and Joe with Penny for being adopted by Cash on May 27, 2010!



Louden
ADOPTED!

 

Gender: M

Age: 10 Restrictions: No Small Children, No Pets


Louden was welcomed into the rescue as a shelter pull on February 6, 2009. He enjoys short walks in the yard and loves car rides, but will need a home with few to no stairs for his arthritis and elbow dysplasia. He will also do best in a home with no small children or other pets, as his eye sight is less than perfect and loud or sudden commotion tends to startle him.

After much time and thought, we have decided that Louden should remain with us at the rescue permanently. With the severity of his recent medical emergency, added to his aggression issues and the normal maintenance of his eye infections and shoulder displasia, we feel it is important for him to continue to get the care and attention he has grown comfortable with over the past year here.

Congratulations to us (Jen, Mitch & our bullies) for being adopted by Louden on April 1, 2010!

Gender: F

Even though she is in her golden years, she is still very healthy and very active. No one can believe she is actually 10 years old and in such great shape! In fact, she is quite the little scrapper and would be happiest with no other dogs and no small children.

George was welcomed into the rescue as a shelter pull on April 8, 2009. He is a well built and strong young guy who loves playing with toys and other dogs of all sizes. He has made a full recovery from his neuter and tail amputation to correct the pain and discharge associated with an infected hind end. He has no other health concerns and loves to play with other dogs, especially little breeds.

Congratulations to David for being adopted by George on May 7, 2009!

ADOPTED!

Matilda Jean, or Tilly, as we have lovingly nicknamed her, is our first official rescue with Bully for You. She was posted on Petfinder.com by a county animal shelter in the upper peninsula, where she had been tied to a donation box and left overnight in the freezing temperatures, underweight and in the middle of a heat cycle. We were aware she had some medical issues, and would obviously need to be spayed and brought up to date on vaccinations. Upon further inspection during the first of many baths, we observed several lumps on her mammary glands that turned out to be cancer. Things looked optimistic, as she thrived at home with us and our bullies, steadily gaining weight and romping through the yard. But when it came time for her surgery, the vet made us painfully aware of the grasp that the cancer had on her. It had spread through her entire body, filled her lungs, and lowered her blood pressure to an alarming rate. So low, in fact, that they were unable to proceed with the surgery and Tilly returned home with a grim prognosis. Expected to only be with us for several more months, we will be searching for a home with a family who fully understands Tilly's situation and has made the decision to ensure that her last days are filled with comfort and only the happiest of memories. This experience with her has only made me more determined in the fight to rescue other bulldogs from neglect and denial of medical attention before they end up like our Tilly.

Congratulations to the Palmers with Winston for being adopted by Tilly on February 15, 2009!

It is with heavy hearts that we were forced to say goodbye to Tilly on June 24, 2009. We are comforted with the thought that she will never be forgotten and are thankful to have played a part in giving her a happy last six months after being rescued.
