Well, hello all you bulldog lovers here we are Marley and Tut with our new family! That’s right, you read that right, we have both been adopted together by this crazy group!  

For the longest time we have worked at Bright Star Clinic. We have greeted everyone at the front door,  sat behind the counter, chased the cats up and down the halls and weaved our way into everyone’s heart who works there. Dr. Larsen in the back with the scrubs on with flowers has always loved us. Maddie in the green shirt gives us baths and makes us beautiful. Taylor in the black t-shirt makes us move out of the chairs up front so she can sit down, and Logan, well he’s the only dude at the clinic who carries us when we get too tired to walk!  Last but not least is our biggest fan. Her name is Heather.  Heather has gone the extra mile for both of us. She has loved us on the days we were not so lovable.  She has called us special, misunderstood, high maintenance, a pain in the ass,  and told us one day you will find a family!  Heather has kept us from meeting Jesus when we got out of control. She has calmed us down and has given us hundreds of treats trying to teach us to sit, be nice, and don’t fight. We must say she loves us the most. Always has, always will.  

It would be super hard for us to have ever left this family. After all, no one knows us better than this group right here.  So, today we have left our rescue family and we have punched the time clock with our new family. So, seeee ya later rescue! We got a lot more work to do with this amazing family right here. Love Marley and Tut!


Marley was adopted last August by the Hopkins County Sheriff Department and made a deputy in Dispatch. The dispatchers took turns taking her home. This arrangement worked well for a while. But Marley picks and chooses her people and what animals she likes. There was some changeover in the department and Marley did not adjust well to the changes.

So it was decided it was best for her to be returned to rescue and find a new family. She would prefer to be an only dog in a stable home environment. While she does not like smaller, fast and yappy dogs, she does better with larger and slower dogs. 

Like we said, she picks and chooses. If she chooses you, it would be like winning the lottery. She is just the sweetest snuggle buddy. And she loves to play dress up!

I bet you’re thinking that is a really big family. Actually, they are my staff. A lot of Bulldogs applied for the job, but they chose me.
First, there was an application, then a telephone interview, then there was a Bulldog-to-person interview. Last, but certainly not least, there was my salary to discuss. Once I flew past all of those hurdles with flying colors, it was all smooth sailing from there.
I did a lot of walking with different people and I looked in every room. Everyone told me what they did and how long they had been in law enforcement and I must say, I was very impressed.
My job is to roam the halls, sit with the ladies in the dispatch room and be the personal assistant to the sheriff. I have multiple beds in every room and I was fitted for my own vest.
Next time you see me, I will be in uniform. I’ll be keeping everyone in line and doing my job to the best of my Bulldog ability. Rescue was great, but this right here is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Gosh, I wish I could get a do-over! I wish that I didn’t feel the need to fight with my fur brothers and sisters. Why couldn’t I have just behaved? All those questions and more are running through my head.

I have been to a trainer, I’ve had behavior modification and I’ve taken behavior medication… yet, I still want to fight with other dogs at times. And when I do pick a fight, I am serious about winning.

I had the BEST family that any Bulldog could ask for…. Time after time, they gave me another chance. But this week, after one more fight, my family knew that the best thing for me was to find a family that was fur-free.

Today, with tears falling like rain, they packed my bags, all four of them, and I am now looking for a new family. I can’t undo the past, and I take responsibility for acting out.

Some details about me: I’m 3 years old and I love toys, treats and attention. I am 100% potty trained and I’m fabulous on a leash. Plus, no Bulldog is as sweet with people as me!

I want a home where I won’t have to be sent to time out. And please don’t think you can change me. We’ve gone down that road. I just don’t like other dogs. Or cats. I’m not a fan of those either.

Hopefully, there are some applicants who have fur-free homes because that’s exactly what I need. I come with lots of stuff, as I’ve been pre-spoiled. I know you’ll just love me to pieces.
