Zeke*adoption pending*'s Story...
Woop Woop! Hi guys! My name is Zeke, and I am in search for my ‘forever home.’
I have a very sad story, like most rescue dogs. I was a stray and picked up by the animal shelter. I sat there and waited for my owner to come pick me up, and no one came. I was in horrible shape. I was 90% bald, my ears were swollen shut from infection, you name it, I had it. I was picked up by Love A Bull Rescue, and they promised me that I would get all better and a wonderful family would love me SO much!
I was treated for demodex mange for months. My hair is about 85% back, but the rest of it will be a slow process, if ever. I was left untreated for so long that it could be possible that I am going to have ‘male pattern baldness’ my whole life. It sure doesn’t take away from ADORABLE looks and personality!
My ears were treated, but will still need to be maintained for life.
My foster mom told me that no dog should ever have to have the life I have had. I am only TWO years old! I went through a seperation anxiety phase for awhile. I thought every time someone left the room that they were gone forever. My vet recommended prozac for me, which is about $15 a month to help calm my nerves. I have transformed into this wonderful dog! I LOVE other dogs, cats and kids over 5 years old. I MUST go live with other dogs. I love to romp and play and be a big ol clown! I am so funny, you could watch me for hours. I know someone out there is going to appreciate my ‘bull in a china shop’ personality. I am a big dopey bully! (In a good way!)
I also take benadryl daily for my skin, as well as a fish oil pill and a melatonin pill. These 3 pills are all ‘human pills’ and my foster mom gets them at Walgreens for next to nothing. They are going to help with my hair growth.
The foster gals will be screening homes very carefully for me. You must have a sense of humor to have me as your dog. Will I walk by a plant in the yard and try to take a big bite out of it?? Yep. Will I jump up and down with joy when I see you? Yep. Will I cry in a crate if I can’t see you?? Yep. So I am going to need a very special home who will keep up with my pills and give me tons of love! I am otherwise very healthy. I am neutered, vaccinated and ready to start my new life!

Not ready to adopt or foster?! Would you consider making a donation towards the rescue dog’s care?? Your donation will go towards their food, treats, toys and vet care. They will re-pay you with a personalized e-mail and big wet kiss!*WHY ARE SOME DOG’S ADOPTION FEES HIGHER THAN OTHERS?
The adoption donation fees are based on age, health and needed vet care of the dogs we have taken in. The younger, healthier dogs help to pay for their cousins that need a little more TLC. You adoption donation fee also covers the cost of the spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip of your new dog.
*CAN WE COME SEE YOUR DOGS?
All of our dogs are in foster homes around the Phoenix area. We require an application to be filled out, a home check to be done, and vet reference check to be complete before having you come meet the dog of your dreams! We will ONLY contact you when we have a potential match.
*I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL DOGS WHO I THINK WOULD FIT MY HOME, BUT THEY ARE NOW ADOPTED. WHY?
We take a lot of time to get to know our dogs in rescue. Some are barkers, which cannot go into condos or apartments, some require companionship of other dogs, and some are not good with children. Each dog is unique!
*IS THERE A WAITING LIST OF APPROVED APPLICANTS?
YES! That is why even if you are not ready to adopt, get your application into us if you want to be considered for a future adoption.
*I AM LOOKING FOR A PUPPY OR VERY YOUNG BULLDOG.
Well, you have come to the wrong place. Rescue dogs on average are between 3 and 7 years old, we do not get puppies into rescue. We would, however, be able to refer you to a reputable breeder.
*BULLDOGS ARE SO EXPENSIVE! WHY?
If you are looking for a cheap bulldog by choosing rescue, need not apply! Rescue dogs are dogs that are going to need ongoing vet care, and a lot of love and training from their new humans. We only adopt to homes that truly want to RESCUE a homeless bulldog. This is not the place to find a “cheaper” bulldog.
*I HAVE AN APPLICATION ON FILE, AND HAVE CALLED A FEW TIMES, WITH NO RESPONSE.
We will contact you when we believe we have a dog that is a match.
Please remember: Not only are bulldogs adorable and cute, they are also high-maintenance and expensive! ☺
