~Mae~ English Bulldog Available for Adoption in Texas
Please welcome Senior Saint Mae to the Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue family. Many thanks to our volunteer Mary who picked up Mae from a local shelter today. Mary says Mae has lost many of her teeth. Her eyes are cloudy and it appears she’s had several litters. She weighs only about 30 pounds, according to the shelter. Stay tuned for more details about Mae.
2/1/16 Update: Poor poor little Mae. I picked her up at the shelter Saturday and have never seen a more emaciated bulldog. It looked like someone had hooked her up to a vacuum sealer and took ALL the air and life out of her. I was amazed she could even walk. She couldn’t see well as her eyes were all matted with green gunk…..but that little tail was just spinning 90 to nothin! Mae went to see Dr. Randy this morning and she has a few issues we need to get cleared up and she needs to put on some weight. She’ll be spayed on the 19th. She looks like she has had a litter(s) of puppies but there is no c-section scars(?). We received meds for yeast infected ears..abraded corneas plus dry eye. AND she does have her teeth….they are just worn completely down to her gum line, but it doesn’t hold her back from eating at all. I’m feeding her 4 small meals a day to not overwhelm her body. We’ll give her time before I say she may need to be an only dog. She is very aggressive with my other bully (and Bylthe will fight back) but Mae can’t do any damage with no teeth! She does sometimes try to start with the big dogs but they just walk away. A spray from the water bottle calms her down.
Mae has the most beautiful face and eyes and will follow you every where. If you come to her she’ll cower down and flop over for you to rub her belly. So we have a little work to do, but soon Mae will be waiting for her perfect family!
2/4/16 Update: Prayers are needed for foster girl Mae! She’s currently at the vet clinic being treated for pneumonia. We believe she’ll be there for at least 3-4 days for aggressive antibiotic fluid therapy. Thankfully, her blood work looks OK and she doesn’t appear to have any kidney or liver issues. Mae is an older girl, so she needs all the well wishes and prayers you can send. Stay strong, Mae!
2/6/16 Update: Mae was released from hospitalization after 3 days intensive treatment today. She had a pneumonia with aspiration with perfuse lung involvement. She was on IV drug and hydration therapy with nebulizer and coupage tratments 3 times daily. She NEVER lost her appetite and have even gained 2# since picking her up last Friday I can continue nebulizer and coupage tratments at home while giving her crate rest for another 10 days…then she goes back for reassessment. Mae is strong and a fighter and has the most sweetest little face…..she will make any family fall in love with her and five her the BEST forever.
2/7/16 Update: Little Lady Mae is on the mend. This poor little girl could eat her way through a 30 pound bag of food in one day if she could. She’s timid, but she’s getting confidence and has had no accidents in her crate. She’s getting tired of bed rest, I think… barking at me several times today to let her out and I can’t say no. Hopefully, at her checkup next week, we’ll get a spay date and she’ll be on her way to her new life.
2/15/16 Update: Mae is starting to NOT looked like a piece of shrunken dried up leather. She eats 4 times a day and is always ready for more. Mae is smart and knows the food closet and where the treats are kept, and has no problem with trying to help herself by climbing to get something if she feels the need. With that pretty little cherub face, you can’t get mad at her. She’ll just do her wiggle dance and roll over and give you a belly rubbing wiggle too! Mae is feeling better everyday and is almost finished with all her meds. She has a recheck this Friday.
2/24/16 Update: Little Miss Mae is well on the road to recovery. She has gained 4 pounds since we pulled her from the shelter and is starting to look like a Bulldog, instead of a shrunken piece of hide. Mae knows her feeding times and waits patiently on the kitchen mat hoping to make it come sooner. Since Mae came in heat this week, it’ll be at least three weeks until we can get her spayed. Then she’ll be ready for her forever family. Mae gets more confident every day.
