    Default Hope I'm not intruding here

    Hello. Found this site and am hoping to get some advice or be directed to other sections of the forum that may address it. I am not at present a EB owner; had two BT's that had been with us since 2000 and died within the last year. What I'm seeking here is advice/direction for what I forsee as a EB possible eventual owner surrender. Here are the details: A friend of my daughter owns a 7-month-old EB named Snickers. The owner has been in an accident and faces a long recuperation period. My daughter tried to foster Snickers, but found she could not cope with her care. With the owner laid up, it's starting to look like Snickers may be ultimately surrendered. What I'm seeking here is suggestions for BD rescues in either Houston, TX area or the Brenham, TX (home of Blue Bell Ice Cream). I'm familiar with several general pet shelters in the Houston Area, but figured a EB rescue would be more appropriate. (I'd step in and foster Snickers myself as we are presently petless, but my wife and I are pushing 80 and a BD would just be beyond our handling capabilities.) As a side note, my daughter discovered that Snicker's owner had been confining the dog to a cage barely large enough to turn around in while he worked 18-hour days. Again my apologies for taking up time and space here, but any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated. Replies, if preferred, can also be directed to my e-mail diaz1935@yahoo.com

    You know what? here there are no such thing as intruding this is the friendliest place on earth and I'm sure you'll get great advice and directions shortly. I'm not living in America so I'm a bit clueless but there are others here that are very informed and involved.

    I wish the best for Snickers

    I am near you, in Waller. I don't have the financial capability to take on a rescue, but I do have time to spare. Please feel free to ask if I can help.

    Also, the closest EB rescue group is English Bulldog Rescue Network in Houston.. They do great things.. http://www.txbulldogrescue.com/

    Yep I was going to suggest English Bulldog Rescue Network Houston also, or Lone Star Bulldog Rescue.

    I wish I lived closer and had the adoption fee money I'd take him.

    Thanks for responses/suggestions. Just to clarify, Snickers is not yet up for adoption/rehoming. I'm just getting some advance possible placement info because at present her future does not appear too certain. (IMHO, the owner should have (1) not acquired ANY dog if he had to work 18-hour days and had no other arrangements for his dog other than lengthy crating. (2) started obedience training at the earliest possible age, as the weight and strength of an EB seems to make one difficult to handle in an untrained state.) (My opinions are probably uniformed as the largest dog I've ever owned was a BC mix weighing 40 pounds full grown.)

    Agreed 100%. I applaud you for getting involved in the welfare of a dog in need. Even if you come away with nothing more than information and advice for the owner, and do nothing more, you are to be commended.

    Never an intrusion and so glad you found us, if even for your friend. I can't help but just wanted to say I hope it all works out for your friend's EB.
