    Hi Everyone,
    Bella is doing so good with potty...just two accidents and it was my fault. I didn't move fast enough. She whined and went to the door..it's 32 degrees here, so by the time I got my coat on..whoops. I just told her my fault...then we went out and she tinkled. I praised her and she turns into wiggle worm.. lol

    Here's a pic of my beautiful girl...-gedc1675-jpg

    Hi Wendy, Welcome to EBN, and Congratulations on your new baby, you are awesome for adopting her and giving her a second chance at a loving home. I can't add anything, as everyone has got you covered and given you awesome advice as always. I'm glad you had some positive results with her going potty outside. Good job Mommy. With time and patience and lots of love and praise she will learn quickly, and she will forget her old life and learn to love and trust you. I agree also that we need to see lots of pictures of Bella.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Wendy! Congratulations on adopting your Bella. She is so cute! Everyone has been giving you great advice here. My bulldog Farley is my first EB and I also adopted him. He came from a breeder situation, he didn't know what grass was for.. I had to learn how to gain his trust, move slowly with new things and really give him lots of praise and rewards when he does the right things.
    I have had him a little over a year and he has really come a long way. He know runs to the bathtub and jumps right in when I grab bath towels.( He used to freeze and flatten out like a pancake on the floor when it was time for a bath.) He was such a fearful boy and very unsure of new things. Now he is a happy and thriving boy that is all about following his people and eating!! We are still learning more about him as he grows more into his personality. No kidding, It seems like it took 6 months to really notice he was learning to be a pampered pooch.

    Best of luck to you both! Can't wait to see more photos.

    I am so happy Bella is catching on so fast. This is a great thread because I love to see so many rescued Bulldogs living the life they deserve and also to have so many people who are going to experience the true pure love of a Bulldog. Wendy, I want you to post when you experience the moment Bella looks at you with such gratitude in her eyes and she knows she is home and safe. It is something you will never forget.
    My smooshy face boy!

    Oh my gosh, Rosalie, you just made me tear up but happy tears
    It is a moment you never forget and my 1st rehome, Brutus & 1st
    bulldog & I, had it as I scolded him for peeing inside, I didn't know
    yet, how super sensitive bulldogs are, I'd had really alpha, tough
    dog breeds that you had to really lay down the law, hadn't joined
    EBN (did immediately after this incident) so was very unprepared
    for what happened. I'd never had any problems with housetraining
    and he just wasn't getting it, I cared for my Mother with Alzheimer's,
    I have Lupus & Fibro, Hubby was gone a lot with new job so was
    very tired & overwhelmed. I was scolding him and a little too loud
    and bent over him, not thinking, he COWERED and threw a grimace
    over his back at me. OMG, I'll never forget the terror & fear in his eyes!
    I just dropped beside him, gathered him to me (he could've bit me but
    didn't) and cried my eyes out. I told him he'd never fear me ever again,
    apologized for my and former owners behavior & promised him a forever
    home filled with kindness, caring and love and only those things. Brutus
    seemed to understand and accepted my heartbroken words, our bond
    was so deep it was impossible to describe, it's changed me forever. I'm a
    naturally forceful & fierce person, always kind but unaware how that can
    come across, I didn't know yet, Brutus had been abused, how many homes
    he'd had in his short life, he was so loving and had taken right up with me.
    It's really hard to tell just how much impact Brutus had on me or how much
    we loved each other, what a blessed GIFT he was to my life. When I lost him,
    I brought him home, buried him in his favorite, soft blanket, under my window
    that a huge tree shades, on a hill that he can overlook his forever home here
    although I know his released spirit runs with delight and plays with my beloved
    husband, Stuart, in Heaven. The next year I lost my dear little cat, CoCo that
    loved her brother, Brutus (they are shown in my sig. line as they usually were)
    and they are happy together in GOD's magnificent Heaven as they wait for me.
    Please, do not be sad for me as I have another precious bully, Cami, who fills my
    heart & home with the same loyalty, unconditional love and silly bully ways that
    keep me laughing every day! Who can be anything but joyous that lives w/a bully?

    Again, GOD will (He has) bless you for saving Bella, I promise you, Wendy, she has
    saved you even more, you'll see


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
