Rocky Top

Rocky Top

Dreams do come true! Rocky Top knew something was up today. He jumped in the car as fast as he could and loved every minute of his ride — looking out the window. 

He walked right into his furever home where he was greeted by the best Bulldog family you could imagine. 

These former Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue adopters had recently lost a precious Bulldog and have so much love to give Rocky. He went right into his new condo, checked out the backyard and plopped on the floor to cool off. 

Thank you to all of his furever fans for praying for such a happy new beginning!

 

Howdy all!  Bet you didn’t think you would see me again!!!  I didn’t either but sometimes things just don’t work out. Anyways, here I am, back at this crazy guy’s house settling in and I want you to know, life rarely gives you second chances so if you were looking for the perfect pup, get your applications in soon and I could be the pup for you!  Hug a Bulldog for me and remember, “No Bulldog Left Behind!”

Man, do I have a story for you. 

First, my particulars. I’m a 6-year-old big fella who is completely happy and healthy…. maybe too healthy at 70 pounds, but hey, my food’s just so yummy!

I have lived with the same family my whole life, since I was a puppy. But as you guys probably know, life comes at you fast. 

My best bud grew up and left home to start his life and I just didn’t fit in the picture anymore. No sad faces for me though because that rescue truck pulled up and BAM, it was time to roll!  

When I got to Foster Dad’s house I got to meet another big guy who called himself Boss (man, is he gonna learn a lesson…hehehe) and another fur sister and they both seem pretty cool. I get along great with other puppers, kitties and little humans too. I’m pretty big though, so they gotta watch out! 

I do all my “business” outside and I absolutely LOVE having my own crate. It’s like having my own bedroom and who doesn’t love that? 

I am working on a little habit that I’ve heard isn’t really appreciated. I get excited real easily and the only way I know how to express it is by humping. Boss said Foster Dad is a little on the crazy side and he bets that this guy can help me out with that. 

Boss just told me something I thought was pretty cool, “No Bulldogs left behind.” I like that. Anyways, ta-ta for now!

10/25/21 Update:  Well a BIG Howdy Doo everybody!  Rocky here with a little review of my new digs. Since I moved in last week I have really come to kinda like this place. Foster Mom and Dad cannot stop talking about how “cute” my face is!  I prefer “Handsome”, “Stunning”, “Striking”, “Sexy”, you get it, but it’s ok, at least they’re talking about me. Foster Dad keeps telling me how proud he is of me because I haven’t had a single accident in the house. Well of course I haven’t, Dad. I do have some home training after all. I am really bonding with my bud Boss, we even moved into a Bulldog condo together and have sleepovers every night!

I’m a pretty shy guy and I love to lay around and nap all day long. My favorite spot is my crate!  I really feel safe in there but hey, I can nap anywhere.

Foster Dad is a little worried about me though, I have been limping quite a bit since I got here. It hurts a little but he gives me massages every night. I get to see this Doctor person I keep hearing about on Wednesday and I hear she is a miracle worker so I am really looking forward to it! I have a little patch on my side that is kinda irritating too but Dad keeps that medicated and he says it will go away real soon. That’s all for now folks, me and Boss have some games to play before bed. Hug a Bulldog for me and remember, “No Bulldog left behind!”

11/4/21 Update:  I wanna say a big Howdy to all my fans!  Foster dad said we have to get cleaned up this weekend so we can go to something called a Bulldog Bonanza!  I’m not real sure what that is but I like Bulldogs, and I love Bonanzas so I say Sign me up!!!  I can’t wait to meet all you folks this Sunday so make sure to come out and say Hi!!!!  Remember, “No Bulldog Left Behind!”

12/3/21 Update:  I’ve been busy this past month. I made an appearance at the Bar 2909 rescue event and signed some autographs for my adoring fans. I also took a trip to see the one and only Dr. Larsen, as well as helped out with an obedience class as a demonstration pupper! Yup, yours truly is famous!

One hiccup though. After I saw Doc, she told me I had encountered a nasty bugger outside and contracted Lyme disease. She told me not to worry though and gave me some medicine that would kick its butt very soon. My foster mom and dad have been making me special treats to go with my medicine, so to be honest, it ain’t too bad!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I know I did! After my appearances this past month, you might want to get your applications in early because I know people are wanting to be matched to me! Keep us Bulldogs in your prayers and remember: “No Bulldog Left Behind!”

1/5/22 Update:  Here’s Rocky Top refusing to budge. As I attempted to get this human-sized tater tot to move out of the front seat and out of the car, I fell victim to his sweet kissy face. He got to stay in the car a little longer.    

But, yes, Rocky did finally gets his big booty out of the car with a little help from his favorite snack: CHEESE.

1/25/22 Update:  I’m nervous, happy, scared and a bit sad. Keep me in your thoughts because yours truly has a meet-and-greet this week! 

That’s right, I may have found my forever family. I can’t wait to start the next chapter of my life, but I have to admit, I’m a little sad that I may be leaving my foster mom and dad. 

They hugged me and told me I would be OK. They said this would be the most amazing life I could imagine and that they would miss me terribly. I’m normally not one to cuddle much, but I’ve been attached to my foster mom these past few days. I gave her a big hug and told her I think I’m ready. Let’s go!

I’ve got lots of Bulldog brothers and sisters looking for good homes, so don’t wait to get your applications in to get matched to one. Hug a Bulldog today and remember, “No Bulldog Left Behind!”

2/5/22 Update:  I was supposed to meet my potential furever family last week, but my foster dad got sick. I had to stay with him and nurse him back to health. He’s better now, so I am excited to interview these good folks this weekend. 

I’m not sure if you all know this, but there was some CRAZY white stuff falling outside yesterday. Some of my fur brothers and sisters were excited to go play in it, but when I stepped outside, it felt like a freezer. Nope, nope and nope. That stuff ain’t for me. 

Foster Dad lit a fire in the fireplace and I absolutely LOVE IT! I parked my wiggle-butt right in front of it and didn’t move. Now THIS is living!

Anyway, I wanted to write one last time and tell you folks to keep on doing what you’re doing. All of us Bulldogs wouldn’t make it without you. With it being so cold, do me a favor: hug a Bulldog and remember, “No Bulldog Left Behind!”

6/1/22 Update:  Look at this beautiful hunk of bulldog. Rocky Top is almost 7 and weighs in at a perfect 70 pounds. This big ‘ole teddy bear has the most gorgeous, soft coat – and loves people. On our walk today, he just decided he found a door that looked like home and wanted to be let in. Will you let him in yours? He just wants his own place to call home and it can have other furry friends too.

6/3/22 Update:  Foster boy Rocky Top is 73 lbs of pure joy and happiness. He recently went on a ride and he just purred in the back of the car until he fell asleep. Once we arrived, the big boy even jumped out of the car on his own!

6/13/22 Update:  Look at this mug! Foster boy Rocky Top is ready to find his furever home. 

Top on the want list for this Top Dog is a comfy bed and a crate where he can lounge and relax. 

This big ol’ hunk of Bulldog just wants to be your companion – he’s super easy and deserves a soft place to lay his gorgeous head. 

6/21/22 Update:   Foster dog Rocky Top is a big ol’ hunk who likes to cool off on the cool tiles. The truth is he makes any space look cool!
