I am housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Meet Lola-Paisley! Lola is about 5 1/2 years old, and originally came into rescue early in 2012, was adopted out but due to a change in the family situation had to come back to rescue this summer. As you can see, Lola is very unique! She is most likely an English Bulldog - Shar Pei mix, a very interesting combination indeed! She is compact - much smaller than the average female bulldog, and has very long jowls and an overbite, and short legs. She also has some health issues that don't quite make her a "special needs" dog, but she will need some extra care. Her heart is slightly enlarged and her trachea (breathing tube) is small, so we have opted to avoid any surgical procedures that would involve anesthesia because of the high risk. Therefore, she has not been spayed or had soft-palate surgery, and needs to avoid excessive excitement, stress or exercise. She also tends to gulp large amounts of air when eating and drinking, so she occasionally regurgitates after a meal, and frequently after drinking her water. Lola also has dry eye, and will need daily eye drops.
Lola is sociable with other dogs, however she is dominant and will challenge other dogs in the home, so any other dogs must be submissive. She would also be fine as an only-dog. She's great with children, but should be placed in a home with older children who can understand that she can't be over-stimulated.
If you're looking for a funny-looking little dog who snorts like a pig, has a "tough girl" attitude, and you don't mind cleaning up puddles of "spit-slime", than this is the girl for you!

So Cal Bulldog Rescue obtain 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.
