Radley

Hi Everybully – It’s me Radley…I had my meet and greet and I met this wonderful family.  I was a little scared and shaking when I walked into Puckett’s,  but Foster sister said everything would be okay and I didn’t need to worry.  I will admit it took me a while to stop shaking and get up enough courage to walk up to everybody and let them pet me.  Of course, it helped that Foster sis gave them my favorite treats to feed me!

We all went for a walk… I ate treats… we all sat down… I ate more treats…we all took turns holding my leash…more treats and I finally settled down.  There was a lot of talking,  I heard something about “a big yard and lots of squirrels”,  and that everyone loved me and wanted to take me home.

So I was officially adopted and started my journey to my new home.  I was a perfect passenger in the car and I ran around the yard looking for these “squirrels”  when I arrived.

Thank you to LSBCR,  my foster family & my foster fur family for helping me find my furever family.  My birthday is on February 22nd,  I will be 2 years old,  so Happy Early Birthday to me!

Yes, I’m checking back into rescue. Foster Mom and Dad picked me up last week from my adoptive Dad. It was a sad parting, as I was really getting used to the snuggles, love and care from my adoptive family. But as I found out, part of being a family is to get along with everyone. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t stop picking on my new fur sister and she is older and smaller than me. So It was decided it was best for me to return to rescue and work on my manners.

Radley checking in….I have been adopted and living at my forever home for 2 weeks now, and I am doing great.  I moved to Austin and my new family consists of all girls and dad.  I have 3 human sisters, and 2 fur sisters, Sophie the pug-bullie and Phoebe the rabbit.  My mom is working with me on my jumping manners, getting used to stairs and letting her know when I need to go out.    I get to snuggle on the couch and I am learning how to “ring the bells” when I need to go out. Mom even said she would like me to become a “therapy dog”, since I love to snuggle and love people.  I want to thank the Rescue for saving me, Dr Larsen & the Clinic for taking care of my medical issues and my foster family for loving me.

Hello Everybully,  My name is Radley and Saturday was the start of a new life for me. I am 6 months old and I joined rescue after my mom called to ask for some help for me.  You see… I have already had 3 surgeries on my eye and my mom noticed that I now have a “hole” in the center of my eye. My mom knew that I would need more special help, so she called rescue.

I was picked up and whisked off to the Bullie Clinic to see Dr. Larsen. I had heard that she is wonderful and that everyone at the clinic will give me lots of hugs and kisses. Dr. Larsen checked out my eye and immediately went to work. One minute I was awake, and then I woke up and my eye was closed. Doc told me she had to “sew it shut”  in order to let it heal.  Just going to tell you, I am so glad I was asleep!  Doc is hopeful that it will heal and I will be able to see again.

As you can see I am pretty cute and I am a puppy, but I am a little scared. I can’t wait to start feeling better and be able to run around and play. I am going to hang out at the clinic for awhile, so I bet there will be a lot of spa days in my future. Hugs, Radley

9/30/19 Update:  I had fun at the last two events and I got to meet a lot of Bulldog people that gave me hugs and pets! I like that. I am settled into my foster home and I even get to share resident Brock’s spot on the couch.

Foster Mom is trying to keep me from jumping the gates in the house, but I just love to be where the action is… I am now having to stay in a crate when everyone leaves for work and to sleep. I don’t mind and I bark when I need to go outside. I get along with all the Bulldogs in the house and I almost have the Scottie convinced that she loves me too.

See everybully at the next event!  Love,  Radley

10/22/19 Update:  Hi all – I have been having a great time at the foster pad playing, eating, jumping, sleeping and playing some more!  I am on a mission to wear out all the bullies in the house!  Dusty is my best buddy and we always play and snuggle.  He is my big brother bullie.  I had fun at Bulloween. I got to ride on a wagon with Auntie Christi.  We made Auntie Dianne pull us around and I kept going for walks to make sure everyone was working. I also checked on foster mom & dad, because I just knew they needed hugs & kisses from me! I love to give hugs & kisses.

Now about the jumping—I have managed to hurdle the gates in the house and I am currently training to jump over the half-door in the kitchen. I train by jumping up when foster mom is making our food.  I jumped up one day and somehow a bowl of food followed me.  Well I felt I had to clean every nugget off that floor!  Scottie helped by eating some. I am a growing puppy so an extra bowl of food is no big deal.

If you need some extra helping cooking or a taste-tester, I am your pup. So far I have not found anything I don’t like.

11/20/19 Update:   Finally, the weather is bright and sunny and I can go outside for longer than 5 minutes! I am still being a “puppy” at my foster home and playing non-stop with Dusty and Marco. Eat, sleep, play, repeat… is my daily agenda. I am still waiting for my forever family to find me. I know they are out there and I can’t wait to meet them.

1/9/20 Update:  Radley is quite the snuggler and loves to be picked up & hugged.  Foster bro Marco is having his “stairs” upgraded and Radley & Dusty think they are pretty perfect for sitting and playing on!

4/12/20 Update:  I am still in rescue and waiting on my forever family. I know they are out there. I would like to have an active family with kids that I can run around with. I love to run and as you know, I am quite the “high jumper.” I mastered jumping all the gates and half doors at my foster home, but I am working on cutting back.

I get along with most of the dogs at my foster home. I just love Dusty (he is my snuggle buddy), but I like to chase and bite the tail of the resident smaller dog, “Little Scottie.” She does not like that and it can start a brawl when she tries to tell me to stop! I am just over a year old, so I am still a high-energy puppy. I do like to snuggle and will sit in your lap if you will let me.

5/18/20 Update:  I have been doing good at my foster home and even got to go with the boys (Dusty and Marco) to visit Dr. Larsen at the clinic. You know, I am a runner and a jumper and my back leg has been hurting lately, so I will limp on occasion. Foster mom was talking to me about slowing down because I didn’t want to hurt my leg/knee. She has had experience with “bad knees” in the family.

Anyway, Doc looked at my knee and told Taylor to give me a “laser” and I thought, “Yay, a new toy!” But instead, it was just something for my knee. Apparently, I have a partial tear in my left knee and if I don’t slow down, I will “blow it.” So, now I’m on some pain meds and have to spend more time in the crate, but I am OK with that, as long as I have my Benebone.

I did get to go out to the pool with the foster grand-kid, and I was a little scared. I put on this floaty thing and the water was cold. I liked exploring the yard, but I was told to leave the “bunnies” alone. What are bunnies? Hopefully, I get to go out to the pool when the water is warmer. It’s good therapy for my knee. I will keep you posted.

7/21/20 Update:  I am still chilling at the foster crib, trying not to run and jump. It can be pretty hard! When I have my crate time, I am just chewing away at the many Benebones that happen to be in here. Also, I’m still working on my “snuggle” game. Until my furever family is found, I will be here.

11/12/20 Update:  I know it has been a while since you have heard from me, but I was just resting and taking a break.

I went to visit Dr. Larsen and her crew last week to say “hi” and give hugs. Then they said I needed some shots! I said, “No, thank you,” but that didn’t stop them. Well, I guess this is what I have to do to stay healthy and keep away those worms that want to eat my heart.
Doc says my leg looks good and I have the OK to look for my forever home. She said I can be active, but not go crazy with the jumping and flying through the air. I could still hurt my leg again and that would not be fun.
I like to go outside with Dusty and Brock and I am really good. I do get a little anxious when I am in my crate with all of my toys, and I really don’t want any doggy near them. I will be good as an only dog in the house. Then I will have all of your attention! I could possibly be with another dog, as long as they are the same size or larger (no small dogs or animals).
2/2/21 Update:  Radley entered our program in August 2019, when she was just 6 months old. She had to have an eye removed, so now she’s a one-eyed wonder! Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find her a perfect family. She would do best in a home without other dogs. Can you offer that? She deserves her happily ever after.
