Catching Up With Addi

Six months ago, we came home from Texas with a shy, uncertain four year old. For all but three years of her life, she had known nothing but loneliness and neglect. For almost four years, all she knew was forced breeding, painful cesarian sections and having her babies taken from her way too soon, just so she could do in all again. And when they decided she couldn’t do it any more, she was to be cast aside and forgotten. She had a name but didn’t know it because, to the breeder, she wasn’t a pet let alone a family member. She had never experienced the loving touch of someone who just wants to cuddle. She had to endure thunderstorms all alone, with no one to soothe her and let her know she was safe. The day that Lonestar Bulldog Club Rescue liberated her, all that changed. Forever. 

Once she got to Dr. Larson’s, she knew nothing but love and kindness and caring. When she arrived at her foster’s parents house, she was shown what her life should have always been like and what it would be like from that point on. They called her by her name and she slowly began to recognize it. They found out she loved Fig Newtons and they let her have (almost) as many as she wanted. They showed her unconditional love, something she had no experience with. She had to learn that being inside was a good thing, a comfortable thing. But she also had to learn that the sounds that we all take for granted, normal living-in-a-house sounds, were not something to be afraid of. She had to learn how to play. It breaks my heart to know that she had to wait four years to be able to play!

When we were considering a second bulldog, we thought about adoption. We were aware that there are many, many wonderful dogs that need a loving home. Our boy, Otis, needed a playmate. We just weren’t certain if we wanted a dog that “had baggage.” We came close to buying another one (Otis was purchased from a breeder) because there are no bulldog rescues in Arkansas. But after doing some research, I found Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. We weren’t sure if we would qualify, since we are out of state, but I figured a small application fee was worth finding out! Boy, are we thankful we did! We can’t imagine our lives without sweet, sweet (and a little sassy, too!) Addi!! It was, by far, one of the best decisions we’ve ever made!

When we came home with Addi, she was scared of just about everything. She would either hide behind the couch or choose to stay in a different room than the rest of the family. We would have to feed her wherever she happened to be. She wouldn’t walk down our hallway, but would have to be carried. She certainly didn’t play or even seem remotely interested in playing. She had a huge fear of our kitchen and would run through the dining room when either going outside or coming in. By leaving the light on all day and evening and using her leash, we were able to get her over the fear of the hallway. Little by little, we noticed her joining us and even playing a bit. Just in the last month, she has finally conquered her last fear – the kitchen. Now she prances and dances when meals are being prepared, almost as if she was never afraid in the first place. She runs, plays, barks, rough-houses, gets butt scratches and sleeps in the big bed with us on occasion, especially when it’s thundering. She has finally, after close to five years, learned to live the life of a loved dog and I can’t describe how grateful we are to have been a part of that!

I’ve shared our story for a few reasons:
  1. I’m so proud of this girl and how far she’s come in such a short time!
  2. I’m so thankful and grateful that we were chosen to be the ones to help her reach this point
  3. If you are thinking about adding to your family, please, please, PLEASE consider adopting! Adopt an older guy/girl. Take a chance – you will be rewarded in ways you never imagined!

Thank you LSBCR for what you do! We look forward to many happy years with our sweet girl!

Bulldog Spotlight--
Meet Chumlee!

It is a story we hear often: a Good Samaritan steps in to rescue a Bulldog from a family member or friend unable to continue caring for them. Only later, they find themselves in over their head with either health or financial problems and they need someone to take the dog. We were glad to take 7-year-old Chumlee into rescue. He is beautiful, fairly healthy, house trained, leash trained, and as sweet and friendly as they come.

He states: “What up ladies? It’s me, Chumlee strollin’ in for an update. I’ve been in my foster home a few weeks now and I must say I’m kinda diggin’ it. Wisdom comes with age and I’m the wisest and if I say so myself, best looking Bulldog here. I let my foster pawrents know exactly what I want, whether it’s to go outside to do my business, go for a ride in the truck, eat or my water bowl cleaned. I also don’t hesitate to let them know what I don’t want, like to be in a kennel or told no I can’t go for a ride. You don’t have to worry, I am past the chewing stage and I don’t have accidents. I’m not hyper and I’d rather not be around those that are. I’m definitely a catch of a lifetime for the right family.”
Fosters Needed:

Why foster? Fostering is an important step on a pet’s journey to their forever home. A home environment is best for their health and wellbeing. Fostering dogs allows them to thrive in a home environment and practice forming bonds with their caregivers. For pets who have been waiting longer for adoption, foster caregivers can help reassure adopters that these pets are a good fit for a home and speak to the type of home or family that would be the best match for the pet. We are always looking for additional fosters in the DFW metroplex.
