Please welcome 2-year-old Ambrosia to our rescue family! Ambrosia finds herself needing a little more medical care than her dad could handle.He knew she needed more than just medicated baths to get this beautiful lady in tip top shape. Ambrosia has some skin problems and some ear problems… somewhat typical Bulldog problems. But she’s now headed in the right direction to get the help she needs. It will be great to watch her put on some weight and get her skin and ear infections under control. Then, it will be time for a new family for Ambrosia!
9/3/18 Update: I am out of the vet’s bed and breakfast and I have moved into a foster home! And let me tell you, I am the queen around that place. No crating for me because I bark! I mean, I bark LOUD! So, pretty much I have run of the house. I know my manners and I know what and what not to chew. I am so happy all of the time!
I had some skin problems and they have been addressed. I have a special shampoo for my baths, some wipes to keep my self fresh and clean and a special dog food (that when you add a little cheese, I love it!). And the only other thing you might need to know: I like to be the boss. However, I am very small and at my new foster home, no one takes to my bossing, so I just duck my head and walk off. I have learned that playing with the other Bulldogs is a lot better than trying to boss them. It’s been a hard lesson to learn, but I am a fast learner. I’m 2 years old, the picture of perfection and looking for a perfect family to love me!
11/27/18 Update: We are hoping to we can bump up her weight and get her skin under control. Her eyes will need meds for the rest of her life. She is selective about other dogs… some she likes, some she doesn’t.
1/23/19 Update: Miss Ambrosia here, and wow, I am hyperventilating on a freedom high. Pardon me while I catch my breath (pant, pant, slobber, slobber)… Ambrosia is a Greek word for sustenance that cleanses the flesh of Gods and Goddesses. My name has not lived up to its billing thus far. But, I am determined to live a heavenly life with a fur ever family.
My memory is fuzzy on much of my past. I am between 3 and 5, but genetics and history have not been kind to me. Upon entering the clinic in May, I was heartworm positive and suffered severe coat and skin infections. Currently, I am working through some digestive issues which have made me too skinny. With the help of a cabal conspiracy hatched by accomplices from LSBCR, I busted out of the Doc shop and hitched an Uber to the encrypted address smuggled out with me.
My temporary residence is Chez Maison Ménard, a BB&B (Bullie Bed & Breakfast). Other Bullies live here too; how cool is that? I have doubts, insecurity, and fears of what will become of me but the fur sisters here comfort and encourage me with their advice. For now, I am on a restricted diet of rice and soft boiled eggs until digestion issues improve. The resident queen and the visiting princesses belong to a pack. I am working on my social skills. Temporarily, I have a private studio apartment with dining nook but want to join the pack.
My dogtor’s orders require gaining weight. Soon, my portions will be plus sized, uhm-hmm good. My goals are to reach a healthy weight, gain confidence, socialize with the pack, graduate to full member status, and become adopted. I have been here long enough to know that my foster parents want and love me. Living in a real home feels SOOO good. I am naturally affectionate will have more news later, after getting to know these foster peeps better. Stay tuned, more coming.
