Kayla joined rescue as an owner surrender. She is heartworm positive so she will need 30 days of strict crate rest. Once that is complete she will begin her search for the perfect forever family.
11/1/2015 Update: Kayla is on bed rest right now while she completes her heart worm treatment but that’s not going to stop us from giving her rave reviews. Kayla is very sweet and gentle with everyone. She will come up to you and sit at your feet to wait patiently for scratches. She loves to chew on Nylabones and will get a little feisty with foster sister even though she has 3 sitting in her bed. It is all bark and no bite and they stop as quickly as they started and everyone will politely go back to their corner to resume the gnawing. Kayla is completely potty trained and will sit at the back door to let you know she needs to use it. If you don’t see her she taps the door with her paw. Even the rain didn’t stop her from going outside. She sleeps in her bed at night and doesn’t move so there has been no need for a crate. Kayla LOVES car rides and eagerly obliged when we had to pay Dr. W a visit to get her spay stitches out. If I’m unloading groceries I always will go out to the garage for another arm load and Kayla is sitting in the car ready to go. She doesn’t like that I make her go back in the house and lay down. That’s no fun for her. Kayla loves food and gobbles her bowl in 10 seconds. Flat. No joke. Kayla has been the perfect houseguest and her 30 days of rest will fly by because she is so easy going and low maintenance.
11/15/2015 Update: Kayla is doing great! She is my little shadow and has decided that she even wants to sleep with us now. That’s ok…we’ll always make room. Kayla is the first Bulldog I’ve ever had that comes when their name is called. I’m betting she thinks she’s getting food but we’ll go with, “Kayla is a good girl who follows instructions.” Yesterday was bath day and Kayla did just fine. She didn’t fight, squirm, or try to jump out. She stood there and took it like a Bully. Kayla loves her foster sisters and even gives them a nightly cleaning. She licks their ears and paws and head and whatever else she has time for. We’ve really enjoyed our time with this lady!
11/22/2015 Update: Kayla has had another great week! She is looking for that cuddle buddy now that the weather has turned more favorable for the Bullies. Kayla thinks she’ll make the perfect Christmas present and you don’t even have to stand in those silly Black Friday lines for her either. Her coloring will perfectly accent a nice red bow!
11/30/15 Update: The theme for this week is, “It’s Over.” Every single thing has come to an end. Kayla’s “heartworm rest” is over. She is a healthy girl that is ready to move on to her next chapter. A very healthy girl! She has done fantastic this past month and I’m so proud of her! The “winning streak” is over. Kayla is very potty trained and I had no problems leaving her out… & about all day or night because she knows when to go outside. Until today. Apparently (Kayla herself did not confirm this) she had enough of the wet fur & soggy paws. The weather did her in and ended it all. I have full confidence we’ll get back on track.
1/3/16 Update: Kayla thinks Adele said it best, or Lionel Richie (depending on which era you are from), “Hello. It’s me…” Kayla is still hanging out with foster mom & family waiting for her family to come along and take her home. Lots of people came into town for Christmas and some brought their fur babies. The only thing that meant to Kayla was more playmates. The leashes got brought out more than usual because everyone wanted to walk the dogs and that didn’t bother Kayla one bit. Kayla still needs a family that will make sure she knows she is a family addition and not the boss. But seriously, who doesn’t want to be the boss? Kayla can have her bags packed up and ready to go if anyone is interested. Just give her a shout and say “Hello” back.
