    Default Adoption Posting?

    I have an 8 year old female english bulldog who I unfortunately can no longer keep. Ive had her since she was 8 weeks, it breaks my heart but I am moving and with school/work and my new location I cant keep her. I very badly want to find a loving home for her as she is such a wonderful dog.

    I was going to post in the adoption section for the state I am in however there is now button that allows me to create a new post. Is this allowed here?

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Thanks for being responsible about trying to find her a good home and not taking hr to a shelter. I think your best bet would be to contact your local bulldog rescue group and surrender her to them. That way the new owners will be screened. Just be as honest as possible with any health issues she may have so as not to delay a possible adoption. Good luck!

    I am sorry about your situation @Dmichaud...that's very sad that you won't be able to take Bella with you. Can u tell us a little more about her...does she get along with other pets, children, and what her personality is like? Just in case someone here on EBN would be interested in contacting you further about her.

    Thank you. Bella is great with people, very friendly. Ive never had any other dogs with her, however the times shes been around other dogs she seemed fine. She is not the most active dog in the world She loves her sleep! Very low maintenance....doesnt chew, dig....etc. Bella is brown and white, has not been spayed, and is house broken.

    I posted some of this in the adoption forum, but will gladly repost.

    At approx 1 year old she was diagnosed with pemphigus foliaceus. Its been a battle over the years but with regular baths and medication its generally controlled minus the occasional flair up.

    I am very hesitant to bring her to a shelter or rescue because of these reasons and would much rather find a loving home with someone who understands bulldogs and will give her a happy life. I dont want her to go to somebody who means well but then cant handle her care. It would break my heart even more to know she bounced from home to home.

    Ive done my best with her over the years and I hope to find someone who can do even better by her. Shes a great dog and deserves that.

    I hope to hear from anyone who can help.

    @Dmichaud, I'm sure you've already thought deeply about this, but is there not a close friend or family member who can take Bella while you're away? I realize that this isn't always possible. I know if I were in the same situation, I would not be able to turn to a family member myself for such help.

    What is your time frame like? We can see if anyone on EBN knows of someone who would be interested. I'm going to move this thread to the General Bulldog section.

    I have 1-2 months tops, unfortunately no. And the few who can....while their heart is in the right place, I don't trust to keep her long term.

    Trust me it absolutely breaks my heart, ive had Bella since she was 8 weeks old. She's a great dog, and she's made me a bulldog owner for life. Unfortunately for this time period in my life I just cant give her the care/attention ANY dog would require.

    I can see how much you love her and how heart breaking this is for you. I know you mentioned you'd like to find her a home vs. a rescue but, and u probably know this already, there's a bulldog rescue in New Orleans and the folks at the rescues have the knowledge and training and experience in caring for EB's. I believe Bella would get the best care there and of course, they'd do everything they could to find the best home for her. Something to consider if you do not find a home/family thru other routes.
