    Im so sorry!! Sounds like he would have had a great home, I just don't understand the adoption rules these days. I know they are looking out for what they feel is the in the best interest of the dog but it just doesn't make sense to me!

    Yes that utterly sucks these agencies do not take into account the love factor at all, believe me i would rather have someone who loves and cares rather than someone who can provide the best home. Hoss is a beautiful dog there are several dogs that you could fall in love with. But being a bit frank Bullies are a breed unlike any other and it takes a certain kind of person to handle one that being said I am stubborn and do not easily give up and have a stink eye like no other. Sorry it did not work, it can with a different bully who needs loving and care if you don't give up. I am hoping the Bully comes out in you cause I love my bully for him and his goofy breed.

    I urge you to not give up. You love him so keep trying. I agree some rescues forget their true purpose. I mean how many people are lining up to rescue a 7yr old bully that is blind?..that's not to say give him to anyone but it's obvious you're willing to give him a loving home and care for him...You love him..fight for him and you just might be surprised!
    i hope it works out..it takes a special person to do this and it sounds like you are!

    I'm so sorry to hear they turned down. Several years ago my kids and I went to a shelter to adopt a dog. We just wanted to give someone a home. We went thru tons of paperwork and crap and then were turned down. It really hurt my feelings. I took it personal. I haven't tried since. I look but I don't dare put in an application. It's a shame. Keep your heart open. Your baby will find you.

    Too many steps?! Ha! A blind person can learn how many steps there are-and so can a dog.I always talked to mine and told her that there was another step-"step up".
    I think some of these rescues go a little overboard. They should at least send someone to meet you and check things out before they make a decision. When I adopted, the dog was in N. Carolina and they located someone here in Tn. and sent them to check me and my home out. Sorry, I know how disappointed you are. He is a handsome dog!
    I agree with @Chumley(OMG!) keep trying, bug them!

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    That is a great suggestion!! I never thought about that. When I call them tomorrow I am going to ask if they have an affiliation with someone here in Nashville that will come out and look for them. Thank You!!

    I just posted a rescue rant myself the other day because my friend got rejected for saying he was able to bring the dog to work with him. They never even talked to him on the phone, just an email rejection. They didn't want the dog going to work with him and they also didn't want the dog staying alone at home. Who can manage that and still pay the bills? He took it personally as well and said he was done with rescues and would just buy a dog. Its hard to keep telling people to adopt when they make it so difficult. I'm really sorry.

    Hi Allison, so sorry to hear it did not go through. Did they offer a potential future bulldog that they think would be a great fit for your home?
