Summer Is Here & So Are The Bulldogs!
Bulldog Spotlight: Meet Dan!

Dan was found dumped on a dead end road. He was laying on a old bedspread with a man's tie as his leash. A farmer that was mowing a nearby pasture picked him up because he is too weak to walk. He was covered in ticks and fleas. We named him Dan, after the man who found him.

He seemed to be shut down emotionally. We don’t think he’s ever been inside or through a door. It took 30 minutes for the vet staff to patiently get him outside and back in his first day. He’s a big boy... 81 pounds to be exact. He has a massive head and his paws are as big as your hands. His teeth are beautiful, so we estimate him to be about 3 years old.

Within a few days at the clinic he roamed through the clinic to see everyone and everything. He passed crates and sniffed and had no reaction. He went outside for a while to take care of business. Well, really, he took care of some of his business half way down the hall to the door! He stayed outside for a while and craved attention, as Dr. Larsen sat and petted him. When it was time to go inside, it was one quick trip around the yard to finish his business, up the steps, through the door and back to his kennel.

He is heartworm positive. :( Just a little bummed by that, but not surprised. If all goes well, he should be neutered soon, have entropion eye surgery and be ready for a foster family in a few weeks. 

Please remember this gentle giant and follow his progress through rescue.

Editor's Note: Dan is just one of many who are heartworm positive and needing additional and costly treatment. Please consider making an additional donation for his care and the care of others. Donate Now!
Baby Update!

Some dogs come to us with the saddest stories. This is not one of those. Baby is six years old and has lived with and was loved by with the same family since she was two months old. But a lot of changes have taken place in the family these past six years. They now find themselves in a position where they feel it would be better for Baby if she were in another home.

Baby has struggled with flank alopecia or some skin disorder for years. Their vet had run tests which showed no abnormalities. They have tried different shampoos, ointments, and dog foods. But in spite of it all the problem persists. But Baby is certainly not bothered by it. She is the happiest and bounciest girl! 

Two months later, Baby is ready for her big reveal! Her skin and fur are beautiful! Baby loves to play with toys, ride in the car, go for walks and is also content to snuggle up and watch TV. She owns every piece of furniture in the house and prefers the people bed.

She is completely house trained and crate trained. She gets along great with all the dogs in the house, but she just does not and will not share with them. The toys are hers and the food is hers. She will stand guard over me when I am making the meals and won't let any other dog near me. She gets fed in her crate so that we don’t have issues. If you are looking for an CUTE, CUTE, CUTE, little compact Diva, we have the girl for you!

NEW MERCHANDISE HAS JUST ARRIVED!
 
Be Careful During the Hot Summer Months!

Heatstroke in Dogs:
Know the Signs

  • Raised temperature (101.5° is normal)
  • Rapid breathing and panting
  • Excess salivation and thickened saliva
  • Fatigue or depression
  • Muscle tremors
  • Staggering

If you spot these signs, get your dog inside and contact your vet.
Wrap your dog in cold wet towels, especially the underarm/belly/groin area. A fan may be used on the dog during the cooling process.
Check your dog’s temperature every five minutes and end the cooling treatment when the temperature is down to 103°. Avoid cooling too rapidly to avoid shock. Allow access to cool water, but don’t force your dog to drink. Your vet may push IV fluids if dehydration is a concern.

Dehydration in Dogs:
Know the Signs

  • Sunken eyes
  • Lethargy
  • Dry mouth
  • Depression
  • Gently pinch a fold of skin at the top of the neck. Is it slow to snap back?

Not all signs of dehydration are easy to detect. If you suspect your dog may be dehydrated, a trip to the vet is recommended. Offer clean cool water. Try different bowls, adding a splash of carrot juice, chicken broth, or pieces of a favorite fruit to one of the bowls to encourage drinking. Some dogs enjoy a few ice chips in their water dish.

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 retrieves Bulldogs from shelters and undesirable situations. Our Bulldogs are placed in suitable homes as soon as reasonably possible.
