Adopt a Bulldog


My name is Bernadette. Bernadette is a German/French name that means “brave as a bear.” That’s me! I have had to be brave to face the world each day. I lost an eye, but it’s been so long ago I don’t remember how. But I recently found myself in a shelter and no one seemd to want to take me home. But then this nice man showed up, hugged me and told me everything would be alright.

So here I am at the vet clinic. I got a nice warm bath. What gal doesn’t enjoy a little pampering? I have lots of skin issues so I hear I will get lots more warm baths! I also have an ugly thing hanging down from my belly. And there are some other issues that need to be addressed. I’ve been neglected for a long time.

I am eight years old and very underweight (32 lbs.). It will take me a while to be where I want to be, but I will get there. My name is Bernadette and I know how to be brave like a bear. I will never give up fighting until I am adopted and safely home in the arms of a loving family.

11/27/18 Update:  I am going to see Santa at the mall today. I need to tell him that all I want for Christmas is my very own family. I hope he brings me one because I have been such a good girl this year …. despite the fact I was picked up by animal control and my family never came for me. But, my health is so much better now! I started gaining weight, my skin is looking better and I am happier. I had some needed surgeries, I have meds for my good eye, and life for me is good ~ except I still want a family of my own. Hopefully, I can pack my Christmas dress and join a family that loves a beautiful Bulldog like me.
