All of you have been so supportive of me; from when Winston passed away in his sleep on the day of my Dad's birthday in July, to all of you rallying behind me on adopting at least one of the 13 rescue bullies. It does sting that I was not selected...and I will not know why. But, maybe the guy in charge of the "big dog park in the sky," who is taking care of Winston, has other plans for me into the future?
    Dang it mike! I'm sorry for you..but I'm much more sorry for the bully that missed the chance of having you him or her....you have the right idea...some things are out of our control...and some things are REALLY out of our control!..but look at it this way..you now know for sure you are ready for another bully..and I just know..Winston will help guide the right one to you...

    Well thank you, Betty and Becky. I am going to keep on eye out for a Florida rescue bully after I regroup from the emotions of trying to adopt. I realized I had put all of my eggs in one basket and was not expecting to lose this adoption process. Although it was upsetting, I have learned a lot about adopting and how to go about it. At some point now-or later, I know I will have a 4-legged kid(s) again in the future :-)

    Oh man, that sucks Mike........ I suppose they had so many qualified applicants that it did come down to a lottery. I sure hope you are able to find a bully soon.

    Sorry to see this Mike, but nice to see you rebounding and looking for other options to find the bully (bullies) who need you most!

    I agree with Becky . If I were you, I would put an app in to the FL rescues and get all set. You can do the home inspection and everything. That way, when you see a bully you fall in love with, you are already *in* to adopt!

    @airmike1 I'm so sorry you didn't get one of those bullies, but I honestly believe in fate and somewhere out there is the bully for you and they are just waiting for you to find each other. Those 13 bullies were meant for other things that's all. Your bully is still waiting for you to find them.

    There is a huge problem with english bulldogs in florida .. just look at the bulldog rescue groups and see how full they are!!! One of them could be meant for you. I encourage you to apply to them so that they already have your application on file. Also, you might want to consider being a foster home to one of the rescue groups. With so many bulldog rescues they are always looking for foster homes. Just a thought .......

    I do work closely with 3 rescues, English Bulldog Rescue of Georgia (they do adopt outside of the state) Buddies thru Bullies in S. FL and the French Bulldog Rescue Network. There are tons of dogs in need of new homes. Some of the rescues here in Fl are having to turn away surrenders for right now because they are overwhelmed.

    Sorry to hear that one of the Jax Bullies didn't find you as their new pawrent, but you will find the right one soon.

    Always with me

    Darn, too bad you had to go through all of that. But I also believe in fate and know that you'll be getting the bully that's perfect for you and the special guy/gal.

    My bulldog is slated to stay at Pet Paradise for 4 days... maybe you should be a Pet Paradise, I'll send my dogs to you. It's a lot shorter term than fostering, but - at the same time, it's not a big commitment while you wait for your furever companion.

    I got Bullied and loving it!
