    to EBN...... Thanx for signing up to EBN. He doesnt look all that under weight. If he was chained up he prolly also was ignored a lot of the time. Instead a trying to add weight to him thru feeding it may be a better course of action to try to build up his muscle tone..... exercise, walks, and lots of bully play. Enjoy the website and feel free to join right in.

    Thanks all for the kind and welcoming words, I'm also sharing this account with my better half Diane as well!

    and yes Angus was named after AC/DC guitarist Angus Young.

    I wanted him to have an English name, originally I wanted Ozzy but was overruled real quick on that,lol


    Bruce that's a great idea on the weight gain the only problem with Angus is he is a picky eater and he rarely eats the same thing twice so I have about $50 worth of can food lucky for me I adopted my moms dog when she died and he will eat anything and I mean anything but he is no EB he is a beagle/mix with the devil.

    I have been gradually increasing Angus's exercise to about an hour a day of walking he doesn't play much right now but in a couple of more weeks he should be stronger and more playful (fingers crossed)

    btw who doesn't love Ozzy?

    Jason, Diane and Angus welcome to EBN. Angus looks so relaxed in the pictures that is so good to see. We had to teach Abbey how to play she was dumped by a breeder and never learned what play was as a puppy. If Angus spent his life chained up he may have to learn or relearn how to play.

    A good quality grain free food will keep him healthy. Once you have a basic food you can use what we call toppers, because changing food will make him sick all the time. Toppers can be cottage cheese, grated cheese, plain yogurt, fruits, veggies, a spoon of peanut butter, moist food. Mix it in so he doesn't cheat and eat it off of the top.

    I can't tell if you have had a bulldog before maybe I missed it. Here are two of my favorite articles to share.

    I got Maggie from someone. I'm her 3rd home. The way she flinches and cowers makes me think she was also abused at some point. The good news is she is getting more comfortable and not sleeping so much and her eating has gotten up to two times a day which is what I wanted. Sound alike angus is on the same successful road! You've found a great hub of information! This website has been a life saver for us and it will be to you too! Good luck!

    Thank you for the links this is my first EB and so sad to hear Maggie was abused.

    I have found a food he likes called Blue Buffalo premium food the cans cost $3 each but if this is all he will eat. I will have to pick up Mc'Ds .99 cent menu when I get lunch to afford this lol

    Angus has some strange habits he walks in circles when he wakes up makes me think he was tied to a tree or something and all he could do was walk in circles. I need to teach him how to play he doesn't play.

    The 1st day we had him home he rolled over and was going crazy letting me rub his belly and now he doesn't want to do that now, sucks cause that was fun and funny.

    well thanks again for all the advise and warm welcome

    Good for you Jason! Angus is an amazing looking bully I never will understand why people abuse their animals I would have already at least driven by the previous owners place and saw what was going on there. Angus looks like he already loves his new daddy and home very much! Welcome to you both!

    I love Ozzy for a bully's name but love Angus Young so I love it for your Angus, great choice!

    I adopted 4 y/o Brutus that had several owners, crated excessively for looooong periods at a time.

    He didn't know how to play or liked toys, bones, etc. In the 7 months I had him, he learned to play
    with us and loved it! Never really got attached to the toys/bones much, loved rides & being w/us.

    Once Angus REALLY trusts you and especially, trusts this is HIS forever home, you'll have a different
    ​bully...it's an awesome, life changing thing to witness and very humbling...I will always rescue/adopt.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I havent been on for awhile 2monthsor so of having Angus he started doing strange things like ram his head into the wall he quit eating etc.. I went into a depression state with him. I had to start feeding him by spoon and giving him water by syringe.

    my vet sent him to a neurologist they found a tumor in his brain stem, we started treatment.

    I was devastated but the treatment was working he was eating better he was gaining his weight back and seemed happy...

    Angus died 2 days ago it came real fast and extreme. I havent cried like this ever.

    He began demonstrating final stages of brain failure he was panting couldnt get cool and started having seizures
    I had to put him down but his vet was out of town so I waited as long as I could but had another vet do it.

    I miss my boy so much I cant stand it,he was a fighter he didnt deserve this.


    This is Angus 3 weeks ago looking good,to get his appetite back we grounded up hamburger so his final meals was appreciated.





    RIP- Angus
