    I just want to say Thank You for rescuing him,,,and to EBN.. Glad you came here looking for help. This is the most thorough bully site on the internet and is packed with helpful info as well as experienced bully people.
    Two things I noticed: 1. He doesn't look as old as the kennel told you he was and 2. HE HAS SPOTTE EARS!!! I LOVE spotted ears!!! Thanx for joining.

    @Sooner .. all the advice you have been given is great!!! All I can add is to find out exactly what the humane society has covered in their vet check.

    As a stray there is a good chance that he had fleas, which gives him a stronger chance of tapeworm. So I would definitely get him tested for parasites. Also, as a stray and then been put in a kennel it increases the chances of him having giardia. Please make sure he is tested for that too. And heartworm of course!!!

    Sorry if this comes across as a downer, but being involved in rescue this is the first thing we do when we get a new bully in.

    Sooooo .... here's the best part. Somehow it is as if a rescue knows that you have given them their second choice and they return that love over and over and over again.

    Thank you for being one of the wonderful people who rescue, and I am almost as excited as you are about his arrival. Is there a date, and time yet????

    @(kazzy220) thanks for advice about the vet. Hopefully my local humane society will have some idea as to what they did for him as the vetting took place in either Alabama or Georgia not sure. My wife and I realize we are in for an adventure but are looking forward to the challenge and are committed for the long haul. We want him healthy, happy and safe. Horrible that he could have been put down because no one wanted him. Have talked to some other pet owners doing research on local vets and will get him an appt as soon as he gets here. The only bad part now is the wait, been a week since we said yes to him and still waiting for a definite date and hopefully a name he has been responding to. Feels like I check my email ever minute.

    Well he's made it. His name is Mack and he arrived yesterday afternoon around 3. So far he's adjusting ok he did good with a bath and gobbled up his first serving of the bland diet. Hard to believe he was a stray his temperament is unbelievable very loving. Put him in his crate last night around 12 without a struggle he went right in no whine no bark. Snored and farted his way through till this morning my wife and I slept in our living room with him. Walks well on a leash. He's had an accident a pee in the house I figure I'm in for a few. He hasn't pooped yet. Here's a question how long can I walk him or keep him outside without exhausting him. I walked him for about 30 mins this am didn't go and when got back in house went pee. Will get a few more pics

    Oh yay! Love that he is already styling in so well. As far s how long to be out, depends on the heat and him. If it is early and nice and cool he should be fine out for a while. Now by out do you mean backyard or walking? If walking him you just have to go by his actions. When he is tired, he is tired. Mine potty in the backyard and to get them understanding i always give a cookie as they know it when they are done. Taught them well since they love snacks. Usually their cookie is some carrots, nothing to crazy. Lol

    Have a small yard for him and took him round a few blocks in our village. Tried another go at being outside for a bit but he fought and when I got him out he sat in front of the door. He came back in hit the floor and passed out. Second day in a new place with food water and a place to lay your head I'd probably nap and take it all in myself. Time for easy street for him for a change.

    Oh, I am soooo excited for you! How wonderful for both of you. Ge is just gorgeous. I love his expressive eyes and cute spotty ears. Seems you are doing all the right things with him. About the heat, follow his lead for the most part but most bullies love sunbathing and don't know that too much can hurt. I limit mine to 5 to 10 minutes at a time in the heat of the summer and longer in the cool morning or in cooler weather.

    Again, congratulations to both of you! What a wonderful adventure!
