Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue                   October 2017

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 surrende red 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.

First Time Foster and 
First Time Adoption

In March, daughter Brie and I drove 6 ½ hours to rescue Gertie, an underweight 38 pound sweet and loving vintage Bulldog.  It was our first foray into fostering.  Who knew what the future had in store?  Gertie was in good shape except for a few easily remedied hygiene issues.  Over the long term, she needed good nutrition and medical care.  Above all, she needed security, comfort, and a loving home.

A few days ago, we learned that a family in Houston , a previous LSBCR adopter, wanted to adopt Gertie.  During a conversation with the family, in which I stressed all of Miss Gertie-girlie's woes, the more they heard, the greater grew their desire to adopt.  My heart leapt with glee that Gertie might have found a furever home.  Later that day, sorrow over flooded the glee.  My doubts were not about the adoptive family as I was certain that they were ideal.  Instead, I was worried about losing a Bulldog that I had come to love.  

All of us in LSBCR understand that it is never about us but always about the Bulldogs.  Gertie is a special needs girl: deaf, arthritic, incontinent, and "loves you like a cat".  Bulldog lovers are blind to any such impediments.  

We are happy that Gertie will have a furever home, yet sad to see her go.  She and fur-sister Gabby bonded so there will be a canine broken heart at home too.  Gertie communicated via the dog/foster spirit line upon departure that she would always love us.  She thanked us for how we had changed her life.  She let us know that loving her was a highlight in her life, that we were special bipeds, and that she would be furever grateful to us.
We are sad to see Gertie go to her new family and home.  We are even happier that Gertie has found her furever family.  It is time to foster another loving Bulldog.  We will be blessed to do so.

Meet Sweetie Girl
Sweetie Girl here, just lounging around getting my belly rubs. Wherever the people are, is where I want to be. Foster mom likes to play a game to see if she can walk somewhere in the house without being followed. Well, let me tell you.... Foster Mom: 0; Sweetie Girl: 12! Are you looking for a pocket Bulldog shadow?

I assume, if you are looking at me, you want me to be right next to you, so here I come! My foster family thinks they have all of my quirks figured out, like how I need appropriate back support at all times. Whenever I go to sit somewhere, it has to be against a wall or a cushion. My foster mom likes to provide the beep-beep sound every time I waddle my back end against something. 

My potty manners continue to be perfect. When I want to come in, I scratch at the door and then I go sit to the side so you don't have to worry about getting me with the door. Foster mom says I have to learn to use the dog door, but I don't think this face can risk getting any more smushed pushing a door open, do you?

I am a very happy girl in my foster home, but I want a place I can call my own. While I wait for a forever family, I'll just keep trying to convince my foster parents to lift me onto the couch, even though I am perfectly capable of getting up on my own. 

I'll just sit here till you come to take me home.

Senior Spotlight--
Sunnee Dee

Sunnee Dee is such a sweetheart, but she is fighting mad that she is still without a family. At age 10, Sunnee still has a spark about her. Unless she gets old over night she has many more good years ahead!
Either the dryer shrunk her tutu, or she has been having one too many banana splits while waiting for her forever family to find her, as she has put on a few pounds since entering rescue. She is really the total package: looks, charm, healthy as a horse with personality plus. She is great around other bulldogs, kids, cats and big people. She is a clean plate eater. She cleans up after anyone if they don't want all their kibble. Like a ninja, she swoops right in and like magic she cleans it all up!  So, please if you need a clean plate eater, a ninja in waiting, or a lazy bulldog babe, send in a application for Sunnee Dee. 

Sunnee Dee could not be any cuter if she tried. There is a family for her out there. She will not be happy until someone finds her and adopts her! When Sunnee finds her family, they will be the luckiest family in the world!

Consider Becoming a Foster Family 
Our ability to rescue dogs from undesirable conditions is limited by the foster homes available. We always need more caring homes in the metroplex to help these precious dogs begin a new life. For more information on how you can get involved, visit our Volunteer page on our website.
