Full of Thanks!

Posted: November 17th, 2012

As I sit here on Thanksgiving morning snuggled up with my dog on the sofa trying to keep warm on this crisp fall morning, it occurs to me that we are   blessed. My rescued dog and I have found each other and we are both feeling pretty lucky! I’m also feeling thankful that my foster dog of four months has been happily placed in her new forever home right before the holidays. Life is amazing! We at ABR would like to extend a great big thanks to all of the wonderful people who cared enough to adopt a rescue dog. You are special people who have found a very special gift to enjoy. We also want to thank anyone who has contributed financially to help care for our furry angels, we are so grateful for your help. Thank you to all of our volunteers who help spread the word, donate their time selflessly, and open their homes to a foster dog so that another dog can be saved! We want to continue to encourage many more people to consider supporting the rescued dogs. We are always so grateful for any help offered, and the dogs are thankful too!  These dogs are saved from terrible situations and yet they still want to trust that we humans will care for them. They are often visibly fearful and reluctant to trust, but you can see in their eyes the desire to be loved. This holiday season we ask that you please consider supporting ABR, the dogs depend on our help.  Please spread the word during this time of puppies being purchased for gifts, DON’T SHOP….ADOPT!  Thank you.

Settle down, it’ll all be clear. Don’t pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear. The trouble it might drag you down if you get lost, you can always be found. Just know your not alone cause I’m going to make this place your home. Lyrics from “Home” by Phillip Phillips

We Need Foster Homes:

Fostering a dog for a rescue group requires commitment. Foster families must be willing to invest time, attention, TLC and offer a safe environment for a dog who is in need. Aside from the day-to-day schedule of feeding, exercise and grooming, some additional responsibilities may be required. Placing a dog in a foster home allows us to assess the dog’s personality and determine the type of permanent home we should be looking at for that particular dog. The foster parent provides love, attention, some basic training (which we help with), and a regular report on how the dog is doing. We are always in need of foster homes because the bottom line is the more foster homes we have available, the more dogs we can help.” American Bulldog Rescue provides food (if needed), supplies and take care of all the medical needs and veterinary costs. You just need to give it a try and you will be hooked! It’s the most rewarding experience to know that you helped a homeless dog find a fantastic family!

Florida: Mama is the wonderful mother of Nemo, Chopper, Polar B, Aggie and Pippa. Mama was actually given a name but everyone just calls her Mama and she seems to know that as her name…lol She is approximately 2 years old and American Bull Dog/Mix. Shes spayed, heartworm negative, and up to date on all of her shots. Mama weighs 101 lbs and is housebroken. She needs some exercise to get her girlish figure back. Mama gets along great with other dogs and loves kids (not sure about cats). She loves to go outside and run, play tag with other dogs, and chase a ball. She is very loyal and loves to be with her humans. Mama is a very affectionate girl, and just a real sweetheart!
Florida: Princess Ruby is such a girly girl and loves attention. She loves to give you her right paw, just because. Ruby loves to get her babies and toys and bring them to your lap to play. She will trot daintily to get them and then bounce, got it and very daintily will bring it back t you. Ruby is especially fond of fluffy stuffed animals. She will baby and nuzzle, but sadly this will lead too the demise of the toy as she continues to destroy it, so supervise please. She loves her daily walks and long car rides where she will sit in the seat like a little human just looking out the window. This is very, very important:
Florida: PeeWee loves other dogs and needs a foster home!
Florida: Mack is a stunning Dogue de Bordeaux at 3 years old and weighing in at 190lbs. He is searching for the right family that can give him the time and attention that he deserves and longs for. He will require a family that has experience and is familiar with Molosser breeds to work with him on his socialization needs; with time, patience and training he will be an amazing boy. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and house trained.
Mack loves to have his ears scratched, belly rubbed, daily brushing and his bath time. His favorite toy is a ball that he loves you to throw but doesn’t like to drop it so he can continue playing. Because of his size he tires out very easily and would benefit with small daily walks.  Due to his big boy size he will not be re-homed with small children or small animals.

Florida: Bo and Sadie are approximately 2 years old and have lived together their entire lives until be dropped off at a kill shelter by their owner that could not care for them. They were scared to death at the shelter and Bo was losing weight. Thank God they had a group of people pulling for them to help get them out before they were euthanized via heart stick. They are spayed/neutered and vaccinated and ready for their forever home. We would prefer to keep them together because they’re so in love with each other. We will separate if two wonderful homes come for them. Please consider adopting these two so they can have a forever family.


Florida: Gabi was an owner surrender in North Carolina- Gabi flew  ti FL with the help of very generous pilot! Gabi is a very healthy, playful dogue who loves people and gets along well with the 3 other dogs here, but now we believe she loves all the attention, so she may be best as an only dog. She is not fond of felines- at all!. She is 3 years old, spayed, up to date on her shots, HW-, on HW preventative, micro-chipped and crate and house trained. She is a beautiful girl with a HUGE personality, she is such a character and will make one lucky family very happy they adopted her. She is a lot of fun to have around and is such an easy going girl. Please fill out an adoption application if you’re interested in adopting Gabi.
Maryland: Beautiful 4 month old Lattie came to ABR when her previous owners dropped her off at a Maryland shelter – with a broken elbow – to be euthanized.  Just 3 months old. ABR just couldn’t let that happen!  We scooped her up and rushed her off for some much needed medical attention (surgery that required two pins and a screw), and a lot’s and lot’s of TLC.   Lattie’s a happy go lucky tomboy that keeps up with the best of ‘em (no girly-girl here)!  She’s a fearless explorer that loves belly rubs, chewing on Nylabones, chasing after her ball, running and loves to play, play, play! Lattie loves people and loves attention and affection.
PA: Miss Cindy Lou Who Cindy is waiting for a Dog savvy family that wont leave her home alone too much. People that are familiar with how this breed’s health is maintained with high quality diet, supplements, grooming and light exersize. Cindy would do best in a home with a comparable size male dog that is calm, submissive in nature. She enjoys the company of dogs and actually opens up faster with other dogs around. It looks like she watches how another dog interacts with new people to show her if everything is okay with them. Trust worthy humans are still new to her. She can be bossy and jealous (with other dogs) at times and would not be a match with a dog that challenges her. She lives happily with two male dogs in her foster home, who let her be the queen. Also a home with no kids is standard practice with adult dogs with no known history. Cindy can get rough during play and mouthy when very excited. This means no plans for kids in her lifetime.
FL: Betty is a big, beautiful, speckled puppy who is evolving into a well-rounded young lady. She is approximately 7 mos. old and like many people who are interesting and captivating, Betty had a rocky start. She was abandoned outside of an asphalt company in Miami and was found covered in oil with two other older dogs – a male and female – who seemed to be friends. Some wonderful, dog-loving people in Miami took them in and bathed them, and Betty found a home in foster. In her foster home she is a sweet, innocent girl who takes gulps from the cup of life. She loves other dogs and enjoys playing with the 5-year-old male Am. pit bull and 5-year-old female AB in her foster home. She’s learning some basic commands and house manners and is waiting patiently for her dream home. She’s housebroken and walks well on a leash. She’s got big paws and a wonderful spirit. She would probably be happiest to go to a home with another dog. She’d be happy to teach your old dog some new tricks.
FL: Linda is approximately 2 years old and is spayed, vaccinated and ready for her forever family.  If you want a best friend for life, you’ll get it with Linda or Linnie as I call her. She just loves to be loved and rest her head on your chest. She is very affectionate. Linnie is beautifully house trained!
She will play like a puppy if you have a toy to play with her and loves to go outside with you and waits for her cue to go back in .
