Hi there, my name is Shelly and I am looking for a new family that will give me a chance at happiness.

My life before the rescue was very rough and there hasn't been a whole lot of happiness in my life so far.

I came into the rescue through the shelter so not much is known about me, but my foster mommy thinks I was used as a puppy mill and had my teeth filed so I couldn't protect myself.

Being in the rescue has been wonderful, and they've helped me to feel much better and begin to know how a bulldog should be loved and cared for.

I've been in the kennel for the last 7 months, but luckily I have now been fostered. I'm still looking for my forever home where I can be an only dog, because I am a territorial girl. I would probably be best with older kids since I am still working on my manners and can easily knock over a little one. I don't know if I like cats, I don't know if I've ever even seen one.

I'm a super sweet girl that loves people! I think I should be a lap dog and follow my foster parents all over the house. I'm a quiet girl, but will paw at you when I think I need attention and rollover to let you pet my tummy.

I love going for walks, car rides, and just hanging out. I always have my tongue hanging out which adds to my cuteness, and my foster mommy just discovered that I like baths!

Oh, and don't worry about me missing my teeth, I can still eat kibble and my foster mommy gives me kongs with peanut butter to keep me entertained.

I'm a good girl when it comes to getting my eye drops, I sit very patiently for them; and you can just slip my pills in with my food, I don't mind.

I really hope you'll consider making me part of your family and can't wait to meet you!

There is an adoption fee for Shelly. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and is microchipped.

For a complete description of how our adoption process works, go here: http://tinyurl.com/qym6jpn

So Cal Bulldog Rescue obtains homeless Bulldogs from owners who give them up to us, from individuals who find them as strays, from veterinarians when the dogs are given to them by the owners, and sometimes from animal shelters. Reasons for dogs being given up or abandoned are numerous but are often along the lines of "we have no time for the dog" or "we cannot afford the needed medical care".

Our volunteers provide foster care for homeless Bulldogs, place Bulldogs in new homes, maintain waiting lists of people who are willing to adopt, and provide education and counseling for Bulldog owners and adopters. Bulldogs taken into foster care are given necessary veterinary care, including vaccinations and heartworm preventatives. Temperaments are evaluated, and Rescue Network members do not knowingly place aggressive dogs in foster care or new homes. Training and socialization are also provided when needed.

Applicants for adoption are carefully screened via telephone interviews, home visits, and contacts with veterinarians and landlords, when applicable. Most rescue groups require the applicant to meet the Bulldog before a placement is arranged. The objective is to match rescued Bulldogs with the most suitable adopter.

Submit an adoption application through the Southern California Bulldog Rescue website.

In order to facilitate home checks and post-adoption follow-up/questions, our dogs must be placed in Southern California only. If you reside in Northern California, please contact the rescue in your area.
