RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie
Update: The sitter informed me yesterday that Rosie had bit her bulldog (granted, there are 5-6 kids running around her house plus a Boston Terrier and Daisy the EBD). When I talked to a prospective rescue I was honest as Rosie had broken skin on Daisy's neck, drew blood, and left quite the laceration (sitter showed me a pic on her phone). That rescue doesn't take dogs with a bite history but they can put us in contact with a couple who will. I found 3 other possibilities, but now the sitter is not answering my calls or texts. I'm hoping she is just busy. The sitter also told me last night that another friend is now taking care of Rosie because she doesn't want Rosie around her kids and dogs. I wish I had better news to share and will keep you updated when I found out anything.
I'm about an hour west of KC if I can be of any help. I've been seeing ads locally for breeder shutdowns like crazy for the last few months. Makes me so sad to see them just thrown away after they loose their ability to make money for someone.
The sitter is a neighbor, as is the owner. I'll find out one way or another
Final Update! I finally found out what happened with Rosie. The woman who owned her has not come home yet! Anyway, there is a Kansas multi breed rescue that took her; however, when the director and his wife showed up to evaluate Rosie they said the wife's Mom had a 10 year old bully who'd passed away a few months ago. Apparently they hit it off with Rosie. This group is highly visible in the community (fund raisers and adoption events) so I'll update if I find out anything else.
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Thanks for the update - hopefully Rosie will end up in a good home. I can't believe that her owner hasn't even come home yet and just left her. That is horrible.
Go check out the auction we are having to benefit two wonderful English Bulldog Rescues! The auction runs until 8pm October 9th, so get those bids in on some of the awesome items!
Aww this story is so sad, I hope this lady is a good fit and keeps Rosie, she deserves a good permanent home.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
