Lula Rose

Lula Rose

Lula Rose found her prefect family!  Not only did they come with bulldog experience, but they knew all about those pesky allergies that can get out of control.  Lula came into rescue with red, itchy, inflamed skin and miserable.  Our rescue vet got her all fixed up and her perfect family has had her a month already.  She’s even had a great birthday party!  We have no doubt Lula is the queen of her home!!

Lula Rose here!  At the age of 3 I am just about everything someone would want in a lady—beauty, brains, sometimes kinda shy. I love other dogs, am completely potty trained and I love to play dress up!  That’s how I ended up here, I wanted to get dressed up for Valentines! I felt like it was my time to step out and show the world that I was ready to find my forever love.  My Mom was amazing. She loved me. She cried big tears when I hopped in the SUV. But my Mom knew it was the right thing to do for me. As long as I can remember I have had skin problems.  I have scratched. I have rolled the hair off my back trying to get relief. I have had shots,  medicated bathes, tried different foods, taken medication, yet here I am still an itchy mess.  The envelope that held my medical care looked like a book. It was mine and my mom’s decision that I needed something else. I needed to join rescue where there was a group of people that knew all about skin, and itching and how to fix me. So today you will find me sitting in Dr. Larsen’s lap where we will be going over a treatment plan so my fur will feel like silk, my ears will not be red, and I will be on my way to finding true love on Valentine’s Day! My name is Lula, my friends call me Lu. And you are sure going to love me.

2/27/20 Update:  Lula Rose is a 3 year old, petite girl who weighs 48 pounds. Like the the old saying: the “best things come in small packages” … well, that’s our Lula Rose!

Lula Rose joined rescue because her mom had tried everything she knew for her skin allergies. She decided that Lula Rose needed people who understood Bulldogs and their allergies. Dr. Larsen has been trying different medication and food to see what works best for Lula Rose. She is already doing much better. Her itching has subsided and her hair is thickening.

When Lula Rose came to rescue, she was timid and shy. She didn’t want to come out of her crate. Then, she made a Bulldog friend at the vet clinic that helped her come out of her shell. Her friend moved to her foster home, but Lula Rose didn’t hesitate by making a new friend in the vet clinic. She paid it forward to a new Bulldog that had come into rescue timid and shy. Now the 84 lb. Mr. Finley is her best friend. It is the cutest thing to see this BIG boy follow this LITTLE girl around.

On picture day, I opened Lula Rose’s crate and she just looked at me. Finally, she decided to step out. She slowly looked everything over and decided we were OK. She was ready to have some fun. She wore her costume like a champ, except the hat. She hated the hat. Every time we put it on her, she took her paw and knocked it off. I put it on a couple times just to see her knock it off again. We then got out the squeaky toy and she would jump for it. Not up, but forward, like a frog. She jumps off her back legs, forward, just like a frog. It is the cutest thing to see. I finally had to stop playing with her and start taking some photos.

Lula Rose is easy with you when she first meets you. She looks you over, then when she puts her stamp of approval on you, she considers you her friend. That’s when she opens up and shows you her Olympic frog jump abilities.

She’s moving to her foster family soon and applicants are being considered for her now. Maybe you’ll be her perfect match. It’s nearly spring and Lula Rose is BLOOMING!

3/30/20 Update:  Checking in from Cox Casa. I will say this place is OK, as far as temporary digs go. I’m a petite queen and would prefer less fur companions around so I don’t have to share the spotlight. I deserve the spotlight. Just look at me! I have the smokey eye down, along with my irresistible charm!

I’m house trained and love a good snuggle. I made myself right at home by grabbing a bone and making a drool mess on the floor. I’m truly a little girl, as far as Bulldogs go. I’m a little wider, but I’m not much bigger than the silly French Bulldogs in this place. I may have a little bit of a stubborn streak, but that adds to my charm. I did trot away from my foster dad yesterday when he wanted me to come inside, but it was a nice day to be out sunning!

OK, I do have allergies and require medications to keep my skin healthy, but I’m so close to perfect that’s no big deal. I wonder how many people will want to take me home forever?
