    Default Vegas has a new brother! Long read....



    After a situation presented itself, I felt we just had to "rescue" a 5 year old male bully. I knew the grandfather of the girl that had him. She is young and goes to school full time and works full time. Her grandfather has been stuck with Mr Wrinkles for about 2 months because the granddaughter's apartment would not allow dogs and she moved to another part of Florida.

    Grandfather was begging me to come and get him as grandfather is wheel chair bound and almost 80. Ive been going back and fourth for a couple of weeks due to A LOT on my plate right now. But as a dear friend @JeannieCO told me, all those problems will eventually go away.

    I went this weekend to "meet" Mr Wrinkles. He is fed a diet of Purina dog chow. He stinks to high heaven has cyst between his toes, hot spot on his neck, bumps on top of his head. Both ears fire engine red. I could not leave the house without him.

    I took Vegas for a meet and greet. He is so tiny compared to Vegas! He weighs about 50 and very short, actually reminds me of Baby O @Libra926 I left the bag of Purina and already have him on Vegas's food, got him on Coconut oil, shaved the hot spot and treating it. Soaking his feet in Epson salt. He is a total sweet heart. He has bright blue eyes, which is weird, but neither blind or deaf..... So most of you all know I suck at taking pictures but I have a few to share.

    This is Vegas wondering what in the world I got him in to! lol



    Mr Wrinkles (I hate his name, but I think he's to old to change it)



    After trying about 50x I finally got a decent picture, and it's bad. lol

    I saw your posts on FB. It makes me happy that you have opened your home and hearts to this handsome fella.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    What a blessing you are to Mr. Wrinkles! So happy that he has such a loving home now. How are they getting along so far? I'm sure he's gonna be feeling so much better in a few days with the new food, and care he's getting now.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Had to laugh, After I went to meet him I came home and told Joe. Wellll.......... he has a hot spot, cyst, double ear infections, filthy dirty, stinks, bumps all over the top of his head. Runny poop due to poor food, big sore on his hind leg, some bald spots...............I'M GOING TO GO GET HIM!!!! ONLY a bully lover would even understand this. I have dealt with all the above with my own Vegas. Mr Wrinkles is on the road to recovery AND he came with his own "Stinky" Lion and I mean STINKY..... He is a nose sucker, just like Vegas. Love it!!

    He's not too old to change his name. You should rename him Orion! Rescues do it all the time!

    You'll have him fixed up in no time! From the photo.. I see Vegas has one tooth out and MW has the other. Just like my two.

    Wow...I'm in tears (I know, I know...WHAT doesn't make me cry? Y'all may be surprised to know
    that I never cried in my early years, never!!! I think 28 yrs with my Beloved's kindness, gentleness,
    & absolute adoration of me healed all those open wounds. I learned to trust & believe in goodness.)

    God bless you, Kelly! You & Joe have just changed Mr Wrinkles life, he will blossom every day! It
    will be great for Vegas (I think of Hershey & Chumley).

    I cry too, thinking about (and missing so much) my rescue of my 1st bully, Brutus, who I found in
    similar shape and also had so much on my plate but couldn't leave him there either. He was referred
    to me unexpectedly too, found out he had never really had a long term home but passed on & on.
    The Nurse had bought him off Craigslist...and don't know WHY as Brutus was such a wonderful & good
    boy! So ready to give love & be loved, no time had been spent on his care or his needs, he didn't know
    how to be a dog, play, chew bones or toys but he loved rides (had been excessively crated) so we took
    him everywhere and gave away his crate. Mother & I were always home (both disabled) and we all were
    together 24/7. Even young, his teeth were rotted & pained him, ultimately that neglect caused his death
    just 7 months together, he came thru dental surgery but back in recovery, he died. It haunted me and the
    Vet with Wife Tech, cried with me and didn't charge me, such a kind gesture!

    God puts these things together so yes, it will all work out for all.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
