    -imag1759-jpg-imag1719-jpg-imag1758-jpgHello All, I am new to this board. I just adopted a 6 year old neutered male, fawn colored, named Maxwell with some minor health problems. The poor fellow just hasn't had a very good life up to this point and it's time that he lives his senior years happy and getting healthier and just a little bit, okay COMPLETELY, spoiled. He has stage 4 periodontal disease, gingivitis, has had several teeth removed, had intestinal parasites fall of 2011, and when I picked him up his poor ears were so dirty they were started into infection. I've cared for a younger bulldog before for a friend that travelled for work for nearly a year non-stop, so I'm not totally clueless, but the health problems will be new for me to deal with. Maxwell has a 7 year old Golden Retriever sister and 3 human siblings ages 10/11/12 years. I hope to get some insight on dealing with an aging bully and how I can give him the best possible life.

    I'm crazy about taking pictures, but they are all on my cell phone, guess it's a good thing that I have unlimited data plan so I can share! We literally just brought him home this morning. I made a 4 hour round trip drive starting at 5am this morning to go and pick him up. I already have about 20 pictures, lol. Gotta love the furkids.

    I have a friend that is picture crazy as well. She is forever asking me for new pics. Unfortunately, I suck at keeping up with pics, ask my skin kids. LOL.. Anyhow, looking forward to seeing them when you upload them.

    Hi and welcome! So glad you found us and thanks so much for adopting the sweet little guy! From this forum, one of the things you might learn first is how important good food is for a bully. His health really does depend on it. There's several brands members use, and Fromm, NVI, Avoderm and others are very popular.

    He sounds spoiled already, so he's definitely in the right home!
