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 is at the vet clinic to get checked out and his shots updated. He then will be ready for his foster home.
Very soon, he will be looking to be matched with his perfect forever family.
2/24/19 Update: Foster boy Chumlee’s colonoscopy results came back and we learned he has inflammatory bowel disease. We’d like to start him on Cerenia to calm his GI tract, but he needs a daily pill and the cheapest source we can find has it priced about $3.40 per pill. Our doc has called the company to see if we can get some type of discount. In the meantime, she’s started him on Reglan, which is similar, but not quite as effective.
3/20/19 Update: Chumlee is ready to leave the vet clinic and head to his foster home. For the past month, he has been tested and treated for inflammatory bowel disease. Since we started him on a new medication, his tummy has settled down and he has not had any problems at all. He is such a sweet boy and gets along with almost everyone and everything. But he is a Bulldog and gets a little bullheaded every once in a while. He just needs some structure and guidance, and a foster parent who will take charge.
