Our hearts go out to the family of alumnus Tonka Justin. He’s now tucked in their hearts forever.
His mom writes: Wanted to pass along some sad news… we lost our precious boy Tonka rather suddenly yesterday afternoon. We are so grateful for the 10 months we had together. He made our house full again and we miss him dearly. Want to thank you for your help and support in his adoption.
3/15/21 Update: Just checking in after my first night in my foster pad… I’m getting used to my new place really quickly. I found the back door right away, so I can tell Foster Mom when I need to go outside and do my business.
I have a little Bulldog sister and she’s OK, as far as sisters go. She barks at me a lot. I think that means she wants to play or something. But right now, I just want to explore my new place and lounge around with my stuffed polar bear.
Foster Mom says my Bulldog sister could learn a few things from me because I’m very well behaved. I do everything she tells me to do.
And don’t let my size fool you. I’m as sweet as they come. I surprised Foster Mom one time with a big, juicy kiss. She wiped it off right away, but I could tell she loved it. And I snuggled up right next to her to go to sleep last night. My polar bear and I could get used to it here, at least until I find my furever family.
3/22/21 Update: It’s been an exciting week for me! I met my human brothers and they love me. I have to say, the feeling is pretty mutual. We like to play tug of war together. They are pretty good at it, but I always win. One of foster mom’s friends from the rescue stopped by to take my stitches out for me and I look handsome as ever now. Foster mom has taken me on a few short walks and says I’m a pro at walking on a leash. When I’m not out for a walk or playing with my human brothers, I love to lounge around the house. There are so many good lounging spots that I can’t pick a favorite. With the weather being so nice lately, I like to sit on the back patio and enjoy the scenery. My bulldog sister still tries to get me to play a lot. She just barks and barks at me, but I ignore her and go back to sleep or back to chewing on my polar bear.
Foster mom took me to a pizza paw-ty this weekend and I met lots of other bulldogs and people. There was a lot going on, but foster mom says I did great with the other dogs. I just hung back and watched everything going on. Of course I let plenty of people love on me. Hopefully one of them will be my furever family. I’m a pretty chill guy. If you need a big furry couch potato to love, I’m your guy!
3/27/21 Update: Foster Mom decided to give me a bath. I don’t know why. I think I smell just fine but she insisted. And boy, did she sure regret it! I’ve been such a good boy since I came to live with her that she was surprised when I wouldn’t sit still or do anything she said while I was in that bath. I just wanted to get out quick! Thankfully, she finished up as fast as she could and gave me a treat when I was done. Now, I’m all nice and clean and ready for my forever family!
3/30/21 Update: Part time dishwasher seeking long term employment.
Whenever foster mom takes me for a walk people stop her to pet me because I am so handsome. She says I’m such a good boy. I’m totally house trained, crate trained, and I know several commands. When foster mom gets my harness I get really excited because I know we are about to go on an adventure together. One day she took me to school to pick up my foster brothers and I did great around all those kids and a little bulldog puppy who was there.
I do enjoy my foster home, but I’d really love a forever family that wants a big, sweet snuggle dog to love on. Could it be you??
