    Default Brindle-advice/help please

    Hi everyone this is Brindle. -imageuploadedbytapatalk1358436573-916292-jpg

    His owners got him from a rescue who didn't know anything about him. We're all good friends, and they are wonderful loving Pawrents to my God dog, Lola. When they adopted Brindle they discovered he was very aggressive. They are a young couple and didn't want him to go to yet another home (they were #4) but he was too aggressive and tried to bite anyone he didn't know well. Crystial and I talked and she was really upset but thought it best to put him down, because he was still so aggressive and they had him 2 years and nothing had changed.

    I told her to give me until the end of the day, they were leaving for vacation and they didn't want to board him and then come back and do it. So, I put my word out and found a guy. He lived alone and didn't have much company. Sixteen year old daughter who visited once a month or so. He had bulldog experience and sounded like an ideal situation. Well things were going great. Then he got married, became a grandfather, etc. now he knew and was fully aware that Brindle had issues. He was boarding him a lot and has now given him to someone else. I am so upset at this situation right now I could just cry-well now I am. It's not his fault that he was abused and now he's being passed around like an unwanted baby. This is not what we had in mind for him at all. He's happy and good with adults, mostly. Not kids. He needs a single home with no kids and he prefers men. I don't know what to do. I'd have let her put him down if id have known it would be like this!

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    Ugh this poor baby!! First, the person who has him now.. Does he want the bully or is he just temporary? I don't really know where to begin with all if this because even if he does want him, and knows his whole history, who's to say his lifestyle won't change like the last owners did. Are there any bulldog specific rescues in the area? They might be able to help, at least with advice on what to do.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Is the home he is in now a forever home?.??? Or is this a temp. Does he get along with other dogs??? I stay home and have a female bully Ava who is fixed. My husband also works from home we have a large large fenced in back yard , I have also fostered bullies before. We have never been defeated by a bullie before lol. We live in SC and would meet half way and he would have a forever home. Let me know if this helps otherwise I'm not sure.

    Would be wonderful to get him help! How wonderful for you to offer!! Sounds like he will need special care to work on his behavior issues. It breaks my heart to hear stories like this.

    Brindle sounds like he's been through so much. I would think his past behaviors of biting have to do with how he was treated (or mistreated) growing up. I know he can be rehabilitated (not to sound like Cesar Millan), and I really do believe that there is a right family for him who is willing to work with Brindle and give him the loving home he deserves. @kspencer, that really would be wonderful if you would be able to take this boy. So @Jackieshoes, what is the next step here?

    @kspencer let me see what the situation is...I know that he prefers men and does NOT like cigarette smoke, or children.do y'all have any kids in your neighborhood, children who want to have kids, etc.... I would have taken him in but I'm 26, and plan on having kids one day. I know that they had 3 bullies at one time but when he tried to bite Crystial and Lola (she was a brand new puppy and being puppy) that was kind of the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak. Crystial is an AMAZING pawrent and the ONLY reason they let bully #1 go was an expected job change and they could only have two dogs, and Lola was a baby I think, and the other bully is extremely laid back and is happy in the new home (we both know the new pawrents and they are just as in love and have a little boy). Crystial is just as upset as I am if not more. She and I have really connected over our love of our babies, kinda like everyone here. WE JUST WANT WHAT'S BEST FOR THE BABY. How old is Ava? I'm not against this, and that's why I turned here. I talk about this forum all the time and trust you all.

    Now, there is NOT a bulldog rescue in Mississippi. Does anyone on here run a rescue for bullies? I'd like to talk to someone about some things regarding that too. Anyway, I'll have to get with Allen and get in touch with the new person and all that. I just got the text from her this morning where Allen told her that he gave Brindle up and something about they keep in touch but I told Crystial to hold off today and we would think it over, and I would ask y'all. I think I'm so upset because I recommended him. I know life happens and things change but he should have come to one of us and asked us to eat back involved if things were going like this...I'm just so dang frustrated and I feel so bad for Brindle. I know he's behaving like this because he's probably terrified, and I ,now how my baby acts when you take him out of his environment....ESPECIALLY without his mommy.

    I'll try and get in touch with him tomorrow (I think it's better to have a "middleman" because Crystial is really really frustrated. I'll keep y'all updated

    You can contact the rescue that's closes to you and they should coordinate some sort of transport to get him. Unsure where Mississipi is (sorry, I find US georgraphy gruesome! lol), but I'll see what I can find. Will let you know soon.

    Typo? Alabama or Georgia maybe? (Not Arizona)
