All of the LSBCR foster families know that “fosters come and fosters go” and occasionally one of those grab your heart just a little more than the others. Well, our Dazie Duke did just that. We only had her for 3 short weeks, but she quickly wormed her way right into our hearts. When we were told of a family wanting to meet her, we selfishly thought that maybe we’d just keep her ourselves. But then we remembered why we are rescuing and fostering these precious Bulldogs and that there are at least 15 or so waiting in boarding or the medical clinic to move into a foster home so they can find their forever family too. So, we met the wonderful Greenlee family and knew immediately that our Sweet Dazie Duker was going to have a perfect life with a loving new Mom, Dad, teen-age Brother and Sister, as well as a silly little Bulldog brother named Otis. That is why we foster – to give these babies the life they deserve and might not have had before coming into rescue. Thank you, Greenlee Family, for loving Sweet Dazie just as much as we do, and we’ll see you all at Bulloween!!
My name is Dazie Duke, kind of like the one from Dukes of Hazard. I am one beautiful 3-year-old lady.. soft, sweet and fabulous!
If you’re wondering why I am in rescue, wonder no more. Plain and simple? I need a new family that appreciates all I have to offer.
First of all, taking a walk outside today was not happening. I bolted back to the door. That’s why all my pics look alike. I said, “If you’re going to take my picture, you better be fast because me and the heat are not friends.”
My family found me on Craigslist and they were sure I was the one for them. They did love me, but they were not prepared for a big ol’ sassy lady, like me. My family had a small child and, wow, can I make a child move when I hear it’s supper time. I about ran her over. After all, I need food too. No one ever taught me to walk, not run, and when I see a hand with food in it, I just assume it’s mine.
So with tears in our eyes, we said goodbye. My mom knew that I needed a family without small kids because I don’t understand the whole “not sharing a sandwich thing” yet. But I am willing to learn.
I need a few medical things done and then I will be looking for my family. I feel confident everyone is going to love me!
9/10/19 Update: Hey all you Bulldog Peoples! My name is Dazie Duke and I just moved into my foster home. I’ve been in the hospital for about 4 weeks getting all kinds of surgeries and medical care but now I’m feeling so much better and ready to get on with my new life. My Foster Ma says I’ve been living the lazy life while in the hospital and got a little “fluffy” whatever that means. She put these things called green beans in my dinner and breakfast kibble and I wasn’t too happy about that and managed to pick around them looking for as much kibble as I could find. I guess I’m going to have to learn to like those green beans or I’m going to get real hungry! I heard my Foster Ma say I’m a sweet, happy girl but that I have to learn not to pee on my beds. I promise I will work on that. I also figured out that I like to snuggle with Foster Pa in his chair – it makes me feel really special. Anyway, I’m off to play with my foster sister. She retrieves the frisbee and I chase after her. Foster Ma says that’s good exercise for me so maybe I won’t be so “fluffy” when my forever family comes looking for me!
9/24/19 Update: What’s a “meet-and-greet,” Foster Ma? Oh, you mean that’s when my forever family comes to visit me, falls deeply in love with me and realizes they can’t live without me. Right? And I will need to be on my best behavior and show them how adorable I am, with my toys always hanging out of my mouth. Right? And I will need to show them how I love to sit in their laps and give them kisses. Right? Well, good – because I got all of that covered. All you have to do is give me a bath and put that pretty lavender-smelling stuff on me and I’ll take care of the rest. Now, if Saturday would just hurry up and get here!
