Keiffer went into Southern California Bulldog Rescue with about 70% of his hair on his torso missing, paws so swollen they looked like they were going to burst, and limited sight in one eye due to a cherry eye that had been exposed for so long it literally turned black.
Keiffer's missing fur
Tami (Keiffer's foster mommy) tried her best to get his hair to grow back, but soon realized there was just too much damage done for too long, and Keiffer was going to be mostly bald. She said "I was so afraid that he wasn't going to get a fair shot at adoption because of his looks, and that someone would miss out on such a wonderful dog and companion".
Keiffer waiting for his forever home
Then the call came from a woman who said she didn't care what he looked like, she wanted to meet him. Kristin went to Keiffer's foster families home, sat on the floor, and was immediately in love. "Most people were afraid to touch Keiffer, afraid they might hurt him and afraid of what he would feel like. But not Kristin. She loved him and touched him like he was the the most beautiful dog on earth, and to her, he truly is" said Tami. Keiffer now lives the life of luxury in Santa Monica, CA. He spends his days hanging out with his bully sister, Kensi, and going on vacations to Palm Springs.
Living the life a Bulldog should
That is what rescue is all about, taking a dog with so much to give, and finding them a human who has a heart just as huge as theirs.
Here is Keiffer enjoying life!!!!
