    I just know you will be successful!

    We got HRH as a retired breeder from Missouri. Had her shipped here via transport. She was 3 1/2 But most retired girls I've seen offered since have been about 5.
    she was "mostly" potty trained, we concluded the piddle accidents at first might have been UTI related.
    She was well trained and very well mannered although she has unlearned some of those manners. (its Daddy's fault)
    She does have MAJOR fear issues, but we have come to the conclusion that it's just part of her personality.
    I'm sure it depends on the breeder what they do with their girls when it's retirement time, but it's another avenue that sounds like what you are looking for.

    Thanks for the support! Just surprised that there isn't a rescue that covered WV and SW/Central Virginia.

    Thanks LariP! That is almost exactly how we found Buddy. We emailed a bunch of breeders to see if they had any retirees. We lucked out that Buddy's original family ran into some unexpected allergies and so he needed to find a new home!

    I didn't even think of that this time!

    I am in the same position. We would like a 2nd bulldog and would like to potentially adopt from a rescue but have run into the same problems you have outlined. I live in West Michigan and we are also "out of the territory" to be considered by most neighboring states. I would like to hear the advice you get because maybe it will help me as we'll.

    Yes, sometimes breeders will have retired girls to adopt out. We do every once in awhile. Just like Little Bee, who we think we may have a home for.

    @Trod1 I would contact Detroit Bulldog Rescue as I'm sure they cover Michigan area. They are on facebook so you can contact them direct through there.

    Thank you kazzy 220. I have applied to the Detroit Rescue and haven't gotten any response to my application or emails. I know it is not necessarily a fast process to adopt through a rescue, which I completely understand, but there also does not seem to be many dogs available through the Detroit rescue compared to neighboring states. i appreciate the advice though.

    I know they have a lot of bullys in, but many of them are on medical hold. In fact right now they are full with no open foster homes. I don't know how long ago it was that you put your application in but if it's been a couple of months then you might want to follow up with them. As with most rescues DBR is run voluntarily by people who already have full-time jobs and families. So that is the main reason why it can seem as if things take a while to happen.

    Maybe you could apply to foster? It is a very rewarding experience to take a bully that has been neglected and see it blossom and become healthy under your love and care! DBR actually has a plea on it's facebook page for more foster families. Just a thought .......

    You might also want to try and contact Courtney who owns Carolina Pet Pantry. She has set up her own rescue ... Bullies2TheRescue. She will adopt out of state.
