Please light a candle and send your love to Sassy’s family, as they recently lost their precious girl.
Sassy’s furever momma writes: We said goodbye to our sweet Sassy last Friday, who we adopted from you all in August of 2017.
We knew when we adopted a senior dog that we wouldn’t have much time with her. But is there ever enough time? (There is not). Five years was not enough.
When we first went to meet her and other dogs the rescue matched us with, it was comical how quickly the meet and greet ended. SHE chose US. We didn’t need to meet the others. It was apparent to us and the foster family (Rey) that we were meant to be.
She ruled her corner of the couch from DAY ONE. She taught my rowdy boys softness and gentleness and how to be calm. She snored like a drunk sailor and farted like one too. She sneezed into our eyeballs and smooshed her face print into our hearts.
In the end, the brain tumor became too much for her small body, so with compassion and wretched sadness we said goodbye before she suffered anymore.
Thank you for bringing her into our lives.
Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue was contacted by a friend who had a friend in bad physical shape. She needed to rehome her two Bulldogs. The woman has to have her fifth back surgery this month and she could no longer take proper care of her two Bulldogs. The owner is a delightful woman who absolutely adores these dogs. They are her family, and this decision was extremely hard for her to make. But ultimately, she knew she was no longer in a position to give them the care they need and deserve. There have been tears shared over the phone and hugs and tears shared in person during this difficult surrender.
Sassy is 6 years old and weighs 46 pounds. She will need to be spayed, be treated for a UTI and have a mass removed. Gunner is 5 years old and weighs 48 pounds. He needs to be neutered and continue taking phenobarbital twice, a day for seizures. Thankfully, he has been seizure-free for years. Sassy and Gunner have never met a stranger and love all things with fur. They are potty trained also. We would like them to be adopted together because they have always been together. After watching them for just a bit, it is easy to see how bonded they are.
1/29/17 Update: We have had a relaxing week. Sassy went to get her stitches out last week and Dr. W said she looked amazing. We finally got to take a bath this morning. Getting rubbed and scrubbed is our thing. It is taking us a little while to get used to all my new foster brothers and sisters. We like our space, but this house I’m in has awesome media chairs. Most of the time we get our own chairs. Doing better on not having any accidents in our crates. Cuddle time is great! Exploring this new home is fun and the treats aren’t too bad. LOL Just kidding… they taste delicious! Had our first photo shoot with my foster pops. Tell me what you think. Please fill out an application if you want to adopt or provide a foster home for others like us.
2/10/17 Update: I am a laid back kind of girl, but do have my moments where I need to show my dominance. Being in a household with so many others is exhausting. I have to break up play battles and be momma hen. Trying to get quite time is what I long for. I definitely would like a family that can adopt my brother Gunner, along with me. We have enjoyed our foster home very much. Hope to meet you soon.
3/3/17 Update: I am doing good thanks for asking. I am a laid back kind of girl who loves attention. You won’t complain about me because I have excellent manners. I love to venture outside every now and then. Taking it easy with plenty of naps is my idea of heaven. I try to be as social as possible, but it’s a little exhausting. If you let me beside or on your lap I will be ecstatic. Love to meet you one day and my brother Gunner is amazing. We are like peanut butter and Jelly. Not saying whom is Jelly, but if I can get some peanut butter that would be awesome! If you would like twice the amount of joy please give us a furever home.
3/20/17 Update: Sassy checking in: I am an elegant addition for any couch. I am fully house friendly. No accidents or chewing for me. I have a beautiful, soft, short hair coat. My brother Gunner and I are still searching for that lucky family. Being the older sister I look out for my younger brother. He tries to show off sometimes, but he knows whom the boss really is. I have enjoyed my time roaming around in my foster home during the day. I always get excited to see hoomans and love getting petted. They have this brush that I can’t get enough of. Feels so good getting my undercoat taken care of. Please share our story.
3/26/17 Update: It’s me Sassy, I have opened up this week so much. For some reason I am an attention seeker. Falling in love with getting my back and sides rubbed. Being so good, I now have full range of the home with my foster sister Shelby. Gunner and I are still searching for that special family. Following around my foster pops is keeping me slim. Definitely getting my steps in this week. Well I’m off to watch some tv and enjoy the outdoor weather.
4/16/17 Update: Hi, everyone. Sassy here. I’m a sweet natured gal looking for a home with my foster brother Gunner. I have a wide stance and soft coat. Seeing my sour mug will melt your heart. I would love to be brought into a home where I can be adored. If you a seeking a pair of Bulldogs that will brighten up your life on a daily basis, we are it. I love going outside to stretch my legs and explore. Luckily, my brother and I don’t bark at weird things outdoors. Hopefully, you can also take me for walks with him.
5/1/17 Update: My sweet Sassy, it has been a joy since you have entered my life. That sour, yet beautiful, face has captured my heart. I now know that Sassy is the perfect name for you. You’re definitely the most head-strong Bulldog I have come across. I love that you yearn to go on walks and be daddy’s little girl, following me everywhere and just giving me that stare. I look forward to coming home to you everyday so I can see how excited you act. The color of your coat is so unique and your wide wishbone stance is gorgeous. I hope a family will find you and Gunner irresistible as I do.
5/30/17 Update: Hello, it’s Sassy. How is everyone? Just checking in to give you an update on me. I have been relaxing for the most part. Now that it is summer time, I will be venturing outside a bit more. Not sure what to make of the new swimming pools in the backyard. I see the others going in them and having fun, so I might give it a go soon. I love exploring under the big tree myself. Looking for anything that may pop up out the ground, I guess. I seem to have made a new friend in the house named Pinky. Thankfully, we both can fit in one seat on the recliners. Hopefully, I can get a meet and greet scheduled this week or next. Please put in an application if you would like to meet me or one of my friends.
6/12/17 Update: Hello, it’s Sassy. There has been so much going on with me this week… where do I start? We have had two foster dogs adopted out, then two that joined us. I like the new ones because they are more my cup of tea. Slow and calm is how I prefer life. I love the new ramp my foster pops made! I am the expert of it in the house. I’m so happy I can get up in the bed and snuggle anytime I want. And sleeping on a Tempur-Pedic bed is amazing. Now if he could just leave the door open when he is at work. He tells me it’s for my own safety, but I think he is just over-protective. I had a meet and greet on Saturday and I think it went great. I am still waiting on their decision and I’m feeling anxious. I keep looking at my foster pops to see if I can read the text messages that come through on his phone. I have been enjoying Mother Nature lately.
6/23/17 Update: Sassy checking in again. It has been so busy in this foster house lately. We have gotten some new fosters in and my brother Gunner was adopted! So happy for him and now it’s my turn I can feel it. Kinda crazy yesterday here with fun in the sun time. We got new pools and these funny fosters I live with couldn’t contain themselves. So funny you show them a little water and they act like they lived outside all their lives. Not me I’m a little more mannered in my opinion. I was taking on the referee role. Someone gets a little rowdy and I am quick to break it up. My motherly instincts always seem to kick in. I am foster pops lil helper. He can trust me to keep everyone in line without hurting them.
He is going to take me on my walk today and so thrilled to have our time alone. I love to explore around the neighborhood early in the mornings. If you adopt me you can expect a companion for life. I am a well mannered girl, but would prefer to be the only furbaby in the home. Not saying I can’t have another brother or sister. Just looking for the calmer side of life to spoil my new parents with my loving. Please share my story, so I can find my furever home.
7/2/17 Update: Hi, Sassy here. I wanted to let everyone know I am patiently waiting to find my furever family. I don’t mind if you’re tall or short. Believe me, I love to make you feel good when you get home. I love to go on walks and even chase some toys. Haven’t understood why my foster pops wants me to bring the toy back. I mean, he threw it and I chased it. It’s mine now, so he needs to come get it. Please put in an application, so hopefully we can meet.
