Hank is one of many bulldogs who are rescued and rehomed every year by English Bulldog Rescues.

Once I was a lonely dog,
Just looking for a home.
I had no place to go,
No one to call my own.
I wandered up and down the streets,
in rain in heat and snow.
I ate what ever I could find,
I was always on the go.
My skin would itch, my feet were sore,
My body ached with pain.
And no one stopped to give a pat
Or a gently say my name.
Ten Commandments of a responsible pet owner
1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be very painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me – it is crucial for my well-being
4. Don’t be angry with me for long, and don’t lock me up for my punishment. You have your work, your friends, and your entertainment. I have only you!
5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice when it’s...
ROOM IN YOUR HEART
Sorrow fills a barren space;
you close your eyes and see my face
and think of times I made you laugh,
the love we shared, the bond we had,
the special way I needed you -
the friendship shared by just we two.
The day's too quiet, the world seems older,
the wind blows now a little colder.
You gaze into the empty air
and look for me, but I'm not there -
I'm in heaven and I watch you,
and I see the world around you too.
I see little souls wearing fur,
How the Bulldog Got It's Face
When the good Lord gave out faces to the dogs long, long ago...
He found when he had issued them there was still one dog to go.
"Where's this dogs face?" he called aloud, "I know I must have made it."
There must be someone hereabouts who's clumsily mislaid it
A shy young Angel then stepped up, "Forgive me Lord," he said,
He stuttered and he stammered and turned a little red,
"I never thought it was a face, it fell out of your bag,
I thought you had discarded...
I have always wanted a bulldog, being divorced 14 years and raising two boys I knew I could not afford one much less the expense of vet care. My boys are grown and on their own, and I remarried a year and a half ago, when my husband Joe ask me what I wanted for a wedding present..you got it...AN ENGLISH BULLDOG!! We got married in Sept. and I immediately started looking at breeders in our area, we rented so I knew adoption was out of the question since we also did not have a fenced in back...
Buster's story or saga began May 27, 2007. Five year old Buster and his owner were riding a motorcycle west on Highway 7 towards Sumpter, Oregon. As they rounded a curve about 21 miles from Baker City, Oregon the rear tire blew out. The cycle skidded onto its side. Buster's owner was thrown onto the pavement and knocked unconscious. Somehow Buster managed to wriggle out of his harness and when his owner came to, Buster was gone.
Buster's owner spent the next 5 days searching the Sumpter...
We got Bella the end of October 2010 at "8 weeks". She seemed small then, but we loved her. (health cert birth date 9/12) From day one she had diarrhea. The breeder said from food changes, it will end soon, the vet treated her for worms. Still no response, 2 weeks later, still constant diarrhea, from runny to soft serve. The breeder came over to give me the AKC papers (birthdate 8/23) and she was active, just diarrhea, he again gave me some dewormer and said she would be fine. Go forward a...
One of my hobbies is playing ice hockey. I'm not very good but I enjoy it and play a couple times a week if I can, but at least once a weekend with my hockey team the Hot Shots.
My second season playing, in my first game, some goon came out of no where and knocked me down. I broke my ankle and tore three ligaments and holy cow, did it hurt!
I hated being hurt and I hated being on crutches but I was SO surprised at how attentive Linus was when I came home. This was a couple years ago so he...
Meet Sarah, our puppy mill English Bulldog from Hungary we purchased from an online broker.
Many wonder why we decided to start this forum. Are we a big corporation? A web developer?
The answer is no. We started English Bulldog News because we had a passion for English Bulldogs. Once the internet became a foundation for finding answers to things, we wanted to start a forum where we could share this passion, and one where we could hold events and make things fun, to be more than just a...
