Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue
Live.  Love.  Rescue.
June 2016  
Summer is a GREAT time
to enjoy a bulldog!

Over 25 available for adoption!
LIVE.  LOVE.  RESCUE. 

Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue is a non-profit, completely volunteer-driven organization dedicated to saving and re-homing Bulldogs with loving families.
 
Hundreds of Bulldogs are lost, abandoned, taken to animal shelters, or surrendered to rescue every year. Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue accepts Bulldogs whose owners can no longer keep them, and retrieve Bulldogs from shelters and undesirable situations. Our Bulldogs are placed in suitable homes as soon as reasonably possible.
Adoption Spotlight

Written by Alumni Gabby

Yeah, yeah, a story written by a dog; I get your skepticism.  Haven't you ever seen a cartoon or Disney movie?  The moral of this story is for you humans to adopt more of us Bullies.  The world will be a better place for all of us because w e loved each other.   We will both be happier and you will never regret it.

We Bulldogs are the center of the LSBRC universe and it is high time one of us stood on her four feet and spoke up for those of us without a voice.  Consider this to be your 822 - that is 411 for you bipeds.

Most readers will recognize me from the story my fur-ever family wrote for the December newsletter.  My latest glamour photo shows why I am a superstar, a platinum blond with a gorgeous face, ideal physique, and animal magnetism.  When Mom and Dad take me to dog friendly venues like Home Depot, Calloway's, Pet Smart, the pool store, even dog-restricted places like the bank, I am a show-stopper.  Everyone wants to love me, pet me, slip me a treat, and have their picture taken with me.  They all remark about my plush velvet coat, grace of Virgin Coconut oil with my meals, but I digress.  A few of my fans have posted on Face Book, whatever that is.  

I decided to write this six month update, even though seven or eight months have passed since I chose to adopt this family.  We dogs are not much concerned with time.  I don't know what day it is or what to do on my day off.  My most pressing daily concern is what meat appetizer Dad is serving.  I have developed tastes for shell fish, duck, chicken, anything on the hoof, fin fish, fruits, basically anything that they eat - hey, I am not high maintenance, at least as far as menu choice goes.  

Writing this story was my choice.  The keyboard was a challenge for my big, rough Bullie paws so Dad arranged for canine voice translation software.  Apparently, it requires a woofer - little doggy humor there.  
Listen all y'all, I got it made here.  The LSBRC did a great job of matching us.  I hear a lot of talk about how adoptive families must expect we rescued Bullies to come with "issues".  Huh, like you humans do not have issues?  We see all your faults and love you unconditionally no matter what you may do or not.  When reciprocated, our bond is unbreakable and the relationship flourishes.
 

We adopted Bullies have often been abused, neglected, denied
proper medical care, nutrition, etc.  When we find a new fur-ever home, please understand that we have initial fears.  It takes time to establish trust.  During that trust period, we may resort to some "unwelcome" behavior.  Please love us through this transition.  We want nothing more than to be loved, cared for, and wanted in your home fur-ever.  We will return your love in ways you might never imagine.  Such is the love of a dog.

My adoptive parents are quite trainable so I taught them the important regimes.  After rising from a night's sleep in Dad's bed, I doze on my bed in his office.  Then it is off to the yard where he picks up after my "business".  Then it is breakfast and another nap before Mom rises and I love on her until she leaves.  After another nap, I help dad with his afternoon errands.  The work is tiring so I always need a nap before dinner.  

Sometimes, I want to play tug-o-war, fetch the ball, crunch my squeaky toy, or enjoy my many diversions.  After dinner, I like to relax on my love seat, lined with a cotton sheet and then chew on my elk antler.  When Mom and Dad settle onto the sofa, I jump into Dad's lap before applying the Bulldog hug, where I pin him back against the cushions by pressing my paws into this shoulders while seating my butt into his lap.  

Then, I show how much I love him by licking his face, lips, nose, ears, eyelids, any exposed skin, until we are both exhausted.  He then surrenders me to Mom, whose lap I lie in while she strokes me until I fall asleep.  Out again to do my business, back in bed with Dad, and so it goes.

Homemade Dog Biscuits

Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats 
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup boiling water 
3/4 cup cornmeal 
2 teaspoons white sugar 
2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules 
1/2 cup milk 
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten 
3 cups whole wheat flour

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.

Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, Cheddar cheese, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough has formed.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour as necessary until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Roll or pat out dough to 1/2" thickness. Cut with cookie cutter (I prefer bone shaped), and place 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. Store in a loosely covered container.

Senior Spotlight

Mojo is a beautiful eight year old brindle owner surrender that will take your breath away with his charm and good looks. Keep your eye on this dude - he's going to be looking even better soon!
5/22/16 Update:  Mojo is just about a perfect brindle boy! His only mistake this week was he thought he was still a "ladies man" and he chose the wrong lady at the house. It took Cassie all of 5 seconds to spin around, flatten him to the ground and let him know in a icy glare that that business will not be tolerated. Mojo slipped away quietly and has not made that mistake again! Any family will love this big boy. He is dog friendly, kid friendly and loves everybody.
Bulldog Care

English Bulldog Facial Folds
One of the most obvious and desired characteristics of the English Bulldog is their wrinkles. Most  would agree, the nose-rope, deep wrinkles on the face and folds canvassing his body are what make the Bulldog unique.

Sure, the wrinkles are attractive, but they may certainly pose a significant problem if they aren't kept clean. It can be easy to forget to clean them and if you wait too long, you'll get a smelly reminder.

Use unscented baby wipes 2-3 times per week as a preventative measure, but they do way more than just preventative care. They deodorize and sweep the wrinkles and deep crevices free of debris which promote harmful bacteria. This can also help prevent tear stains too.
 
When bathing your bulldog, make sure to get your hands soapy (tear free shampoo) and run them between the folds. Let the soap sit for a minute or two if possible. Gently flush the soap out with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Avoid getting water in the ears.

If you feel that the folds are already quite tender to touch, use something less abrasive like a make-up remover pad to soak up moisture. Don't rub already irritated skin, but gently press the pad into the fold and let sit for a moment.
