Nick (now Cooper)

Nick (now Cooper)

Some of our very own Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue volunteers and former adopters in Houston decided they needed some good puppy energy in their lives and Cooper (formerly Nick) is up for the challenge!
Upon meeting his new mom and dad, Cooper was instantly smitten – and the feeling was mutual. Cooper packed his bags, took a few pictures, said goodbye to his foster family, and was ready to hit the road!
Cooper is going to have the most amazing home that comes complete with a loving family, three fur siblings, and from what I hear, a ton of toys! Happy tails, sweet boy!

Hello everyone my name is Nick and I have joined rescue.  And I am 4 only months old. As you can see I have some skin problems that need addressed and I might be on the thin side, but both of those things will be taken care of soon.

In a couple of photo’s you will see a beautiful bulldog lady, her name is Noel. Noel hopped in the rescue wagon with me and off we rode. Our family was not able to take care of us any longer and they wanted us to have the best life ever. 

I will be the first to tell you I am super scared. New place, new food, different people find me trying to hide a lot. Today when the food truck rolled around Noel jumped up and had her a heaping helping of food, where I sat frozen with my eyes darting back and forth.  I think Noel is comfortable because she has been places,  and me, probably not so much.  

Noel also has some lady parts that could use a good pair of “spanx” to hold them up!  I know you might wonder if Noel is my mother? I really don’t know. All I will say for sure she is my best friend. Noel tries to sit as close to me as she can because she knows that I am super scared.  

Watch me as I travel thru rescue and watch my transformation. Trust me I am really excited to start my journey!

12/21/21 Update:  Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s a good thing they’re cute?” in reference to a spirited toddler or adventurous child? That saying is true for Nick, too. 

I put a new, clean tablecloth on the table and before I could set the table, Nick stole the tablecloth off the table, hid it in the laundry room, and fell asleep! 

Thankfully, foster girl Noel Nutcracker is very patient with his puppy antics. When she was gone for her spay, Nick brought all of the dog toys in the house to the crate and waited for her. 

We are continuing to work on potty training, walking on a leash, and not eating people’s fingers or toes. Like the other dogs in the house, Nick has kennel cough and is being monitored/treated per Dr. Larsen’s instructions.

12/29/21 Update:  Nick continues to be a spirited pup with boundless energy. His cough started to get worse, so we started him on antibiotics, too. The antibiotics kicked in quickly which made Nick a happy boy. 

Nick loves all of the toys that came in his Christmas bag. He sends a big THANK YOU to all of our donors! We are still working on potty training and not using the humans as chew toys. 

This week, Nick figured out how to get on the couch, but once he’s up there, he just stands around like he’s not sure what to do. Silly boy!

1/5/22 Update:   All of a sudden, Nick has found his voice! One night, after we had all settled down for the evening, I thought that we had an intruder in the house because Nick was barking and carrying on. 

Thankfully, the only intruder in the room was Nick’s shadow. Once I found the offending light and turned it off, Nick settled down and all was quiet again.

We are adding more food to Nick’s daily diet because he is still a bit on the skinny side. Nick approved this increase immediately! He goes in for his neuter and microchip later this week, so please send some quick healing vibes his way.

1/10/22 Update:  Nick’s neuter hasn’t slowed him down for a second! He must have heard that there’s good news brewing and he has a very important meeting coming up soon. Keep your fingers crossed for Nick!
