ON TEMPORARY MEDICAL HOLD
I may be a classic case of neglect. Thankfully, I somehow ended up in a shelter. That led to my new and much better life in rescue.
I was covered with fleas. My eyes, ears and everything else were a mess. I am very underweight for a boy my size. I also tested positive for those nasty heartworms! But they told me at the shelter I could get medicine to kill them and I will be as good as new.
I love being around people and will follow right beside you. I also get along with other dogs.
So I am off to the vet clinic to get checked out and everything treated. I trust it will not be long until I am fat and happy again. When I am, I will be ready to be matched with my forever family. I am just looking for one that will love me and take good care of me. Are you willing to give me a chance?
5/8/19 Update: Hello, everyone! Ferris checking in from my foster home. Wow, my first week in my new digs has been a-mazing! I have great, healthy grub to eat like I’ve never had before. Foster Mom also gives me these things, called satin balls and they are so tasty. She just gives me one after the other, mumbling something about covering up my bones. Hey, I’ll play along if it makes her happy. I also get to wear some cool duds since I am a little itchy. My second favorite thing about being here is that I get all the loving any bullie could ever want or need.
I must say, I’ve been pretty starved for affection at this point. I just can’t get close enough to my humans. I get kisses and belly rubs galore! I like this life much more than the one I had on the streets. I heard foster Mom say that I need to get fattened up for something called heart worm treatment. I choose to concentrate on the phrase, “fatten up” right now, thank you. Keep the satin thingys coming, I say! I do have some other guys here that look like me and I really do like them. They are nice to keep warm with on a fluffy bed. I’ve been going outside to do my business, but she says I still have some work to do, so I will take her word for it. Gonna go take another long nap while the rain is here…makes me sleepy!
5/20/19 Update: Ferris had a great week in his foster home! He continues to be a loving Bulldog, following you around to every room you go. He simply adores his people. He is getting along great with his foster siblings and learning that foster mom can love on the other dogs and not forget him. Ferris continues to gain much needed weight and his skin improves daily. He is a champ at taking his medicated baths and even having his nails done. Ferris is a pleaser and all he asks for in return is your attention. We are still working on the house training, but he has had much improvement. Next up for Ferris is having his heartworm treatment, followed by 30 days of rest for those pesky worms to die and dissolve. Ferris has such a bright future and will be an amazing addition to a family.
6/17/19 Update: I’m checking in from my 30-day confinement to get rid of these nasty heartworms once and for all. I really dont mind the rest because boy, am I getting pampered. My meals are brought to me in bed, toys are also ushered to me with just a wimper and I’m getting all the snuggles I can get. A Bulldog could get used to this!
Foster mom says that after this, I will be looking for my forever home and she said it will be as amazing as I am. I haven’t had the easiest life, having been a stray on the street and all. I tell you what: I sure am appreciative after leaving that old life behind and I sure do show it. I will snuggle with you all day, if you like and foster mom says I give the best kisses. I just want to be with my family… that’s not asking for too much!
I am still working on my house training and I’m walking well on my leash, though rest is what is happening now. I love to eat and I’ve put on 10 much-needed pounds at this joint! My skin is looking so much better with baths that I love to take. It’s just another way to get petted… with soap and water!
I’m thinking I’d like to be the only thing with fur in my forever home. I’m still making up for all that time on the streets with no love, so I just don’r want to share. I do think some smaller humans would be great to live with because I’d get more snuggles!
