Bulldog Spotlight:
Meet Corey!

From Corey:  I know these things happen, but I never thought it would happen to me. My family always loved me. But they were displaced from our home and had no where to go. I told them I would go join rescue and they would not have to worry about taking care of me when they had no home.

My name is Corey and I am 2 years old. I am a little thin and I have some bad spots on my skin where my hair is all gone. We never could figure out what caused it or what to do. So I will be spending some time with the nice ladies at the clinic for spa treatments and a little surgery. They said they would give me plenty to eat!

I love kids and other dogs and love to play with them. I am not a fan of sudden or loud noises. So I will hang out at the clinic until I feel better and then I will be ready and eager to find my next home. I sure hope my old family makes it.

From Foster Mom:  At this time, we are living in his world: "The World According to Corey.” His antics have us laughing and his manic foster mom's words have been “Corey, stop. Come. Stop. OK, fine. Corey. Corey. COREY!"

Corey decided to skip that second nap he usually takes after a well-balanced breakfast and dive right into the sprinklers. He even sat on it! The World According to Corey.

He can be a busy body. He has this need to check things out and sometimes gets himself stuck. You know, like going up the stairs and somehow get stuck at the top. It doesn’t look the same going down. You've been there, right? Or possibly falling in between the bed and bench. Geez, we’ve all done that, right? For more information on Corey, check out his page on the website.
Are You Having Dog Behavior Issues?

It is not uncommon for rescue dogs to have a variety of behavior issues. Most are dealt with in their foster homes. But some will need continued attention and work long after their adoption. Their foster can be very helpful with this process. But sometimes you need more.

We were recently contacted by someone in the northeast looking for a dog behaviorist to help him with a behavior problem. As always we recommended he contact Scott Sheaffer to see if he could recommend someone in his area. 

He checked out Scott’s website and responded,  “Wow! This is excellent information. I just finished watching the first 50 minute free video of dog language. I plan on watching the other pertinent videos and will pay for them gladly. Scott Sheaffer is the real deal. Genuinely wants to pass on valuable information to those of us who want to understand and remedy relationships. 

Thank you so much for your help. You have no idea how many videos, trainers, vet recommendations I have sought out. 

I also will be making a monetary donation to your Rescue Club on behalf of Freddy Spaghetti my sweet but challenging Bulldog!”

We highly recommend Scott Sheaffer (CDBC, CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA) for your dog behavioral issues. If you live out of state he now does training via Zoom. You might want to subscribe to his excellent monthly newsletter, read his past newsletters, view his free and low cost videos and check out the other resources on his website. USA Dog Behavior  
Hot Weather Advice...

As we enter the hot Texas summer, please remember to follow these safety tips and learn to recognize the signs of heat exhaustion in your pets.

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 102°. 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.

Other Things to Remember:
  • Walk your dog in the morning hours, before the sidewalk becomes too hot for your pet's paws.
  • Don't overexert your dog. If your dog begins to lag behind or tries to sit down, STOP and allow your pet to rest.
  • When dining out with your pet, bring along a water dish and find a shaded area to sit.
  • NEVER leave your dog alone in a parked car. It only takes minutes for a car to heat up to deadly temperatures, even with the windows cracked.
  • Be prepared - know which emergency vets are nearby in case your dog needs IV fluids or other life-saving treatments.

If you have a Pug, Bulldog, Pekingese, Boxer, or any dog with a “short face,” be aware that they are at a higher risk of overheating.

The structure of their airways means that they are unable to pass air quickly over the tongue through panting to keep their bodies cool. These dogs take special care, and that means absolutely no exercise outdoors in hot or humid temperatures.
