My dad was working a lot and I was living in a crate for many hours a day. I wasn’t able to get out and do my business, and I was, in general, just lonely.
Finally, I had a talk with my dad and told him about Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. I told him how they could find a girl like me a new family ~ one who would give me the time and attention I need.
I filled out the surrender paperwork and he dropped me off at a nice couple’s home. They even laid out the welcome mat for me!
I’m going to crash here until Monday and then I will head out to someone named Doc Larsen. I’m told I’ll be able to sit in her lap and tell her about all that ails me.
I’ve got a couple of issues going on back there that need some attention and word is this Doc Larsen is the “Bulldog Whisperer” when it comes to fixing up us Bulldogs. I’ll be looking forward to moving on with the next chapter of my life, but right now I need a nap.
5/4/21 Update: We can begin with confirming she is super sweet, calm and friendly. She is already spreading the love at the vet clinic.
While her spirit is amazing, her body is a 9-year-old train wreck! Her tail pocket is quite large and badly infected. Her tail may have to be amputated. Her lady parts may also need some corrective surgery and she also has four breast tumors that Dr. Larsen strongly suspects are cancer. She has a double ear infection, several bad teeth and she has several large skin tags that need to be removed. We are waiting for the lab work to get back to see if there are any additional issues we can’t see.
At her age and condition, Dr. Larsen has not decided which issues she will attack first and how many she will be able to correct in one surgery.
In the meantime, Sophie Rose will just continue being her sweet self!
6/8/21 Update: Sophie Rose is 9 years old, but she sure doesn’t act her age. She’s young for an older girl and very playful. She also rides well in the car. She was checking out the house and look where she landed…. on my bed! I was trying to make it up and she got up there to “help.”
6/15/21 Update: Sophie walks great on a leash! She gets along with my dog, sleeps most of the night and she loves getting pets. She eats well and loves chicken.
