Foster Bullies

March 9, 2009

Ya’ll remember when DawgMom let Chico, our foster brother use the computer to tell a little about himself? Well, he found his forever home! His new hoomans think he’s awesome and sent DawgMom some pictures of him with his new sister, Maisey. He is living in NC not too far from us and having a great time in his new house. His new name is Buster and from the looks of his pictures, he doesn’t miss us at all. DawgMom says Chico aka Buster, was the best dog we could get for our first time rescuing and fostering a Bull Terrier. He was such an easy, fun dog to have around, he made the whole process easy on her and DawgDaddy. Check out how happy he looks.

The very next day after Chico aka Buster went to his forever home, DawgMom got an email from Miss Becky about a Bullie girl in the Knoxville shelter that needed to be pulled out of there by the next day or they were going to send her to the Rainbow Bridge! So, on Valentine’s Day, DawgMom and DawgDaddy head to Knoxville to pick her up. LizzyBelle is small for a Bull Terrier and has some “issues” She is a very nervous girl and when she gets stressed out, she chases her tail until she catches it! When she catches it, she bites it until it bleeds. Her tail is a mess! She has to be on medicine to help her and DawgMom has to make sure her day stays on the same schedule all the time or she gets all stressed out again.  It’s pretty strange, cause us Bullies don’t understand why she does it. DawgMom says she was not lucky enough to have hoomans that loved her right from the start and she just didn’t know how to deal with being left somewhere by herself. She has been in bunches of home and 2 shelters already! She is starting to act like a normal dog, but DawgMom said she feels like we take 2 steps forward and one step back with her. Whatever that means.
DawgMom ordered a “Bite Not” collar for her to wear when no one is around to keep an eye on her and it makes her look like Frankie-stein. We’re not supposed to make fun of her, but it is funny looking and it’s hard not to make fun.

 We’re not sure how long Miss LizzyBelle will be with us, but DawgMom says it will probably be a while. We don’t mind though, she is very sweet and likes to play with us even though she don’t really know how to play. Can you believe that? She don’t even know how to play! We’re teaching her though. Well, everybody but Darla Jean is teaching her, Darla Jean bosses her around too much, so she is not allowed to play with her yet. She loves our little brothers and sisters and even sleeps with them. We hope she will come around enough to find her own forever home, but right now, we’re not sure what will happen. Just when we think she is getting better and not going to mutilate her tail, something will happen and she will have it bleeding again. She even bit the whole end off of it last week when she thought DawgMom left her! We are trying to teach her how to be a Bullie and how to have fun and that she doesn’t need to be afraid of things, but it’s hard work! Makes us all very tired.

Anyway, thought we would give you a few updates and show you some pictures, now since that weatherbug thingie on our ‘pooter says it’s 70 degrees outside, we’re gonna go play for a while. We’ll be back to our blog later.
