  • Rescue Stories: Meet Butterbean

    Meet Butterbean

    Let me introduce myself, my name is Butterbean and I am the spokes-dog who inspired the formation of English Bulldog Rescue of Georgia. This non-profit organization has made it their mission to help abused, sick and neglected bulldogs just like me.

    My story starts off like those that we rescue. Letís just say that I have a tale to tell. I was found in an abandoned lot with severe demodex mange, malnutrition and dehydration. I was rescued at a mere 6 months of age. My little feet were swollen and made walking very painful. I was taken to the local vet who wanted to put me to sleep. But one of the assistants at the vet wanted the vet to give me a chance. I was transferred to Florida English Bulldog rescue and then to my new family (now English Bulldog Rescue of Georgia). When I arrived I know I smelled horrible, and eventually all of my fur fell out. Once I was with my new caregivers, I knew they were going to keep me forever. I had them wrapped around my swollen paw! I went on a strict food trail with the doggie doctors and eventually I got on a specific dog food that helped with my condition. After 1 year of being treated, I am healthy and happy now in my new home. As a result of my past I have a hard time being on my little feet and my breathing makes it difficult and sometimes impossible for me to get out and go places.

    As the spokes dog of the English Bulldog Rescue of Georgia it is important that I get out into the community and let everyone know about the need to help rescue the bulldogs and all animals from pain and suffering. Since I was originally rescued from the Florida English Bulldog Rescue, I want to tell them I love & thank them for giving me the chance to live, and to be a part of something so important!

    If your bulldog has any patches of hair loss/itchiness, you may want to get them checked for Mange. The sooner it is found the easier it is to treat. Even extreme cases of mange can be treated with a little love proper daily care. Don't give up on your bully!

  • I Rescued A Human Today

    by Janine Allen

    Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

    I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

    As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

    She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

    A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

    I would promise to keep her safe.
    I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

    I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

    I rescued a human today.
