    Default Jacksonville shelter has kept and is adopting out some of the bullies found abused.

    Here is the link to the adoptees. I have heard through the grapevine that they are adopting to experianced bully breed owners. I have my hopes I opened their eyes a little on the letter I sent them.

    If anyone in the area is interested, seriously, please contact them.

    I have had a varitey of dogs in my life and English Bulldogs are the best! It just breaks my heart that so many fall into the hands of people who abuse and neglect them.

    As of 30 minutes before posting this, I have submitted an application and a letter to adopt 2 of these bullies. I could not think of a better way to honor my beloved Winston. Wish me luck :-)

    Sounds like they are going about it the right way, but I still wish they wouldve gone to rescue. Thanks for the update

    I've only had 6 weeks or so of Bulldog experience. But I have decades of general dog experience. Is that enough to qualify me?

    But then, I'm having such an amazingly awesome time with Bullie that I might be getting ahead of myself and thinking another adoption is going to be as awesome... I might not be ready for 2 bulldozers... I don't know. My husband is really wanting to try out for one... so confusing...

    My husband is really wanting to apply but our bank account can't take a $3,000 hit right now... and, from the way these dogs were treated, it might come up to more than that. We might not be able to do "right" by these dogs.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    OMG! That is great. I hope you get TWO of them! They may want to keep them together...I hope so anyway.

    If we were still in FL, I could probably talk my hubby into putting an app in for one but we don't.....My mom has left FL too or she would be on it as well.
