    Default Meeting Gary

    When I brought the Kong Toys to the So Cal Bulldog Rescue facility yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy,

    -img_5720-jpg Yes folks, this is Gary, the bully who we just held a fundraiser for. And boy, is he one handsome dude!

    Gary is so vivacious, sweet, loving, spunky, and has so much energy. I am amazed at how well he's doing from his recent major surgery. He will be undergoing his leg surgery this coming Friday and SCBR is so thankful to EBN for helping to pay for that, as a result of our fundraiser.

    This is a little clip of Gary in action:




    -img_5722-jpgGary is an incredibly social bully and here he is greeting Annie, another SCBR bully.

    -img_5729-jpgGary was so excited when he received his Kong. He was playing with that like crazy!

    -img_5736-jpgHere he is with his Christmas Wreath around his neck

    -img_5766-jpgI love this little boy!

    -img_5775-jpg-img_5779-jpgThis is Keith (on the left), and Chris…they are Gary's foster parents. They wanted me to tell everyone on EBN how thankful they are for the money raised to help Gary and his future surgery.

    It was definitely a pleasure and an honor for me to meet Gary yesterday, and to meet the foster parents who are so giving and generous in opening their hearts and homes to bullies like Gary.

    Gary sends a BIG KISS to English Bulldog News!!

    Now this is the icing on the cake. How incredible special for you, and us, to see Gary in this setting. And for you to be able to meet him and hug him, WOW!!! What an absolute incredible day you had Henny! I have to admit I'm jealous but in a good way that you got to meet Gary. Great job again!!!

    @JeannieCO and @desertskybulldogs, I cannot believe that this awesome boy was almost put down. He is one incredible bulldog…i'm not just saying that, he truly IS. I believe it was God's hands that intervened on the day that Gary was at the shelter and the rescue volunteer happened to also be there. Yesterday was a rewarding day for me too.

    What a wonderful thing! He has been on my mind, since I saw the photo of him before his surgery. I saw it once-and never could look again. I can not believe how someone could just leave him.... He looks so wonderful, and all who help in fosters and rescues are wonderful people. You have to exceptionally STRONG, LOVING, and UNSELFISH enough to do this work. I want to keep them all-but just can't DO it..................I guess my heart is just not big enough.
    Fosters and rescues are certainly the silent heroes Thanks to ALL of them.

    This is so great. Gary stole my heart - he reminded me a little of Dudley. I can't bear that they were going to put him down...now look at him! He's fabulous and will be a terrific addition to someone's home. After such a bad week last week...this is such a joy! Thanks Henny!

    Reading Gary's story was very emotional for me - I called my wife in to read it also - we decided we had to help, so we made a donation to his cause .Then we went on to check out the Southern California Bulldog Rescue site - it is so heartwarming to see all of the the places across the USA that give so much time and effort to save the unwanted and abused BULLYS (the people who had them must be nuts ) We love our April and the change she has made on us since we were blessed to include her in our pack ...So we picked out shirts to help out SCBR too they made great Christmas gifts for each of us . We are going to make this a more than annual thing !!!
