She is BEAUTIFUL --- I am totally in love with herAww thanks all for the warm welcome and the advice! So appreciate it.
Joni's problem fold looks MUCH better this morning after using the medicated wipes. I think I'll keep using the EarthBath grooming wipes since she doesn't mind them, add in some Witch Hazel and the desitin and go from there.
She is SUCH a sweetheart. Super well-behaved, totally house broken (basically pees on command when you take her out—no dilly dallying! which is great since we don't really have a true yard and take her out on leash for potty breaks), crate trained, GREAT with kids, good with other dogs on the street, asks permission to jump on the furniture, knows some basic commands, and she's getting used to the cats. The rescue wasn't sure how she'd do with our kitties which is why we did a trial run—but after a slow introduction she shows no interest in them at all and everyone is adjusting perfectly.
I just can't believe anyone would rehome this sweetheart. I don't know much about her back story, but from what I've gathered the family had another, older bulldog and when they had a new baby Joni got aggressive with the other dog. But they had also recently moved cross country and I'm thinking it was just too much change for her all at once.
More pics! She loves to flatten like a pancake on the floor, and army crawls to people passing on the street to say hi.
