Bless you Carol.I completely understand how you feel and have these feelings too.
My son dated a girl for 3 years and that was our first introduction to bullies.
You couldn't help but love Bruzer, he was incredibly handsome but it was his
personality that got you!
I begin researching bullies but was quickly turned off by so much suffering by
this wonderful breed and when I first kept Bruzer for a couple of weeks while
Krista visited Chicago, I became worried over his breathing and then about 5
days into keeping him, started crying over him. Bruzer was healthy until he was
almost 4 y/o then developed severe allergies, crystals in his urine, etc. It was
a constant round of vet visits, medicines & special foods. I gave up my dream of
a bully puppy, too heartbreaking I thought. Then I got a call about a male bully
needing a home. I drove 6 hrs to see him and my heart was his...Brutus got in my
truck and went home like he'd always lived there, with me He was around 4 and
been thru several homes, no fault of his just stupid people, no time for his needs.
I had become a member of EBN to help me understand his needs and when I lost
Brutus, I posted here and 2 months later got a call from @Davidh about a 5 y/o
female needing a home. My son drove 5 hrs to pick Cami up and she's been with us
6 months now and we are all so happy!
For me, rescuing or adopting a bully needing a home feels right and will always be
