Spring Is Here & So Are The Bulldogs!
Bulldog Spotlight: Meet Chuck!
Eight-year-old Chuck was given to a family who gave him to another family who gave him to another family…. and THEN, he was finally rescued by a nice woman who runs a small rescue out of her home. However, she quickly realized that Chuck was very sick.

The Bulldog rescue group closest to her was full and couldn’t help, so she contacted Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. Our volunteer hopped in the car and drove 3 ½ hours each way to bring Chuck back to the DFW area and get him the medical care he desperately needed. As it turns out, Chuck had a severe case of pneumonia abut improved quickly after he was placed on the right treatment.

His foster mom writes: Chuck hates to be left alone. He will try to find any way possible to make it to where you are and stand right on your feet. No kennel or gate keeps Chuck from making the great escape. He absolutely loves my young son and the son loves him. This sweet guy can be very active. He has been playing more, and wants more and more attention. He’s a very loving guy, and falls into your lap when you do give him the attention for which he begs. I finally talked him into coming up on the couch with me for some cuddles but he was a little unsure at first. But once he figured out he could basically sit in my lap, he didn’t want down! Chuck just brightens our day. Everyday I am seeing little glimpses of him showing he is feeling more comfortable around us. Today, he ran out of his kennel and ran right outside and pottied. He came and jumped in my lap to see if I had a bite of lunch left, which is a first! And just the way he looks at you just melts your heart. Chuck is a great guy, and he makes this Foster Momma happy that he is happy and feeling better and loving life.

Why I Adopted a
Senior Bulldog:

• I know he spent 9 years with another family that decided they were done with him and dropped him off at a kill shelter.
• I know he was so lonely and frightened in that shelter that he became deathly ill for no apparent health reason.
• I know that he was scheduled to be euthanized at 2:00 pm on May 27, 2017.
• I know that when we got him from that awful shelter at 1:00 pm on May 27, 2017 that he was dying of a broken heart.
• I know that he smelled like death and was covered in fleas, ticks, feces, and vomit.
• I know that Dr. Larsen could find no medical reason that he was vomiting blood and had black, bloody diarrhea.
• I know that with a little attention and care, he flourished and became healthy and happy.
• I know that with a little love, he trusted again.
• I know that with a LOT of love, he loved again.
• I know I won’t have a lifetime with him, but the time I will have with him will be a life well loved.

Recipes To Help Your Pup Cool Off

1. Frozen Yogurt–Dipped Strawberries
This is literally the easiest frozen dog treat of all time. Are you ready for it? Fresh strawberries (with the greens cut off, of course), dipped in plain yogurt . That’s it!bUse a fork to do the dipping, then lay on parchment paper and freeze. So simple and so, so good.

2. Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treats
Some people think pumpkin should be saved for September–November only. For shame, we say! Pumpkin is good all year round, especially when you blend a can of it with a cup of yogurt , a teaspoon of honey and a banana , then spoon into ice trays (another great opportunity to level up your cuteness with some dog-themed silicone molds). Plus, pumpkin is good for your dog’s digestive tract. Can’t go wrong with that.

3. Frozen Apple Dog Treat
While we’re on the topic of fall flavors, let’s throw a frozen apple dog treat into the mix, shall we? This one’s pretty easy — slice two apples , ditching the seeds and the core, then chop up and throw in a blender. Add a cup of plain Greek yogurt and a splash of water , then blend, pour in an ice tray, freeze, and enjoy!

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.
