    There is an organization in New England that helps with bullies, rescues, transports etc. Drop me a PM and I'll give you their information, oh they are all over Facebook too!

    rescues will take the bulldogs if there is room, but they will not pay for them... so someone needs to get them out of those homes and then take them to a rescue.. it breaks my heart..

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    I got both Bullie and Angus from craigslist.

    Bullie's mom contracted multiple sclerosis and it was very rapidly advancing. She went from normal to can barely walk in under 2 years. Bullie would brush against her legs and she'd fall down. I got Bullie when she was already 3 years old. She gave me a thick envelope full of every single vet visit complete with receipts. It even had her first tooth in it. I got her blankets and pillows and toys and food and clothes and collars, etc. etc.

    Angus was the opposite. Angus' dad got him as an 8-week old puppy from a reputable breeder then a few days later lost his job. Angus was 9 months old when I adopted him. Because of the dire circumstances his dad was in, I did not get a single thing with Angus. He didn't even have a proper food bowl. He tried to keep Angus - even forgoing his own food... but he felt bad for Angus so he decided to swallow his pride and get him adopted.

    Most ads for EBs I see on craigslist are backyard breeders trying to sell off their puppies. They usually ask over a thousand bucks for them. Some even make the bold move of putting it in the For Sale section instead of the Community section! You can usually smell these ads a mile away. Especially after the first contact.

    What really FIRES ME UP is the inconsiderate POND SCUM that I've seen on there offering their EB FOR TRADE... I think I saw one the other day for an iPhone or something similar. I normally hit "flag as spam" and move on because Lord knows if I reply and they tell me where they live or say something stupid, they'll come up missing a Bulldog. Posted about this before...I JUST DON'T GET IT. I don't see how anyone could own any animal and just put it out like trash.

    I just saw a wonderful EB ad on Craigslist yesterday. The guy was selling his man cave stuff and a trailer so he could afford surgery for his EB. Made me wish I had money to go buy his stuff to help him out.

    The rules on craigslist say you are not to sell AKC dogs but you can place a dog on their site and ask for a rehoming fee or an adoption fee. Normally when they have a EBD it is a spammer however there have been times that an actual dog really was up for adoption. The site/people will also flag people who try to sell dogs such as and EBD and like I said more often it will get red flagged from somebody on that site (the ad will then be taken down once flagged). I have spoke to several people who have found great homes for their dogs because I do not like seeing them on that site either and would rather they go to a rescue home.

    There's pro's and con's to it.. just like everything else I suppose. A few years ago my boyfriend and I were in search of our second bully. He found a craigslist ad for a full breed EB. So we decided to contact the owner. It was horrible.. she was locked in a cage too small for her. you could tell the owner abused her, she was shaking and soo afraid of the owner. plus we could immediately tell she wasnt a full breed. My heart went out for that poor doggie! I left soo angry and told my hubby never again would we answer a craigslist ad because it just breaks my heart the way people treat their dogs I called the local rescue on that guy, hopefully they took that dog away from them!
    .Peace.Love.&&.Bullies.<3
