Please welcome 6-year-old Bella June to Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. Ten months ago, this Bulldog-savvy family found her for sale. They said it was obvious the owners did not want her and were not treating her well. They were also afraid who might buy her and what might happen. So they bought her and took her home.
They were told she was three, but they soon realized she was much older. As the months passed and more old health problems surfaced, they decided her care was beyond their capability. So they reached out to our rescue group for help. They knew we could get her fixed up and find her the family they were not able to do.
She is a little stiff in her joints and needs to lose a little weight. She has dry eye and will be put on a different medication for that. She also needs some dental work done. But she loves her humans and will do anything to please.
1/1/18 Update: What a great couple of weeks I have had in my foster home. Lots of warm blankets to snuggle on with my foster parents, great grub and several foster siblings to play with. I would say one of my foster sisters I kind of clash with… Foster mom says it’s because we are alike ~ we both want to be the QUEEN! My foster brothers are really cool. They just go with the flow, so I hang with them.
I keep hearing this term, “diet,” and that it will be good for my joints. My knee is a little wonky, so I hear having a couple of pounds fall off will be a good thing. But the green beans? Nuh uh…not eating them! I am house trained, crate trained and mom says the most lovable creature she’s ever snuggled with. Woohoo… I win! Happy New Year!
1/12/18 Update: Foster girl Bella June says good morning! She’s sad that she won’t get to go to our Bulldog Bonanza tomorrow, but she has a bum knee that needs rest. Instead, she will stay home on her throne… er, couch and pillow!
2/5/18 Update: Bella June here! What a week I have had with my foster family. I have discovered that I LOVE going for car rides. Every time I see one of my humans going for the door with keys in hand, I get so excited, wiggling my tail as fast as it can go. Sometimes I don’t get to go where they are going, but that’s okay. There’s always next time. Foster mom has been taking me to a place where they rub a light over my knee, and boy does it feel goooood! See, I have a tear in my ACL and the humans are working hard at getting me better for my forever home. I’m not crazy about being on a diet, but I DO feel better. And after my knee surgery, I will be looking for YOU!
3/4/18 Update: Bella June had a great week! With her knee surgery out of the way as of ten days ago, it’s all uphill for this little spunky girl. We must admit: she is a little hard to keep calm and resting. I think she is feeling better and she just wants to dance! We tell her that will come soon enough, but now is the time for rest and rehab. Bella’s personality is as big as they come and just as loving. She adores her people. And other dogs? She tends to be boy crazy on that topic! Along with such a big personality, she can clash a bit with an equally outgoing female, so we are saying only boy pups for her. Stay tuned in the next coming weeks, as this sweet 6 year old grows strong and well, slimmer!
