I'm so sorry to hear about Sweetie Pie ... being an animal lover myself, I can empathize. Unfortunately, bulldogs' life span is only 7-8 years, largely due to respiratory issues ... and they're prone to numerous health problems, as you've discovered. You've done the right thing contacting a breed-specific rescue group. Keep in touch with them ... they usually have foster care for the dogs until they're adopted. I wish you well ... keep us posted.

i was just explaining to a friend in a private email, that i feel somewhat like a teen age mother....

should i keep her because I want to, knowing that i will never be able to provide the care she needs,

or should I try to find a family (hopefully a vet) that has the resources to provide her with the love and medical care she will require to life a happy painfree life.

yesterday the vet told me that in "vet circles" they have two sayings about english bulldogs....anyone that want to own a english bull dog had better got to vet school, and the other, noone that isnt a vet should have an english bulldog.

i was hoping to find a recuse group that would let her stay with me, until she finds the prefect home, so far the closest one to be seems to be about 7 hours away, hopefully they can meet me half way, or if not, i can take her....

thank you for your thoughts and if anyone comes up with a plan...please let me know...

What about if you used something called Care Credit? I know .. it's still spending the money but not all at once in a lump sum? I'd just hate for her to have to relocate yet again.

If you decide to keep her....Care Credit that Skwirl mentioned is good. I use it for my dogs. You can get her treated, and not have to pay hundreds in a lump sum...you can make monthly payments.

Care Credit

Talk to your vet about it to get more information.

Good luck to both you and Sweetie Pie.

I'm in complete agreement with Skwirl and Sugar. I think you are her true forever home. But I know that a sick animal can keep you in the poor house...so you will get no judgment from me...only hugs and best wishes. (((((Hugs)))))

i wish this was her forever home, but friends we are not talking about a few hundred dollars, if it was that, yes i would make payments...

but we are talking 5 to 6 thousand dollars, including 3 or 4 different surgeries, any of which she might not wake up from....

what ever crazy mother fuckers ever line bred or inbred to create this poor creatures should be drawn and quartered...

By now you'e learned that bulldogs are probably the most high-maintenance breed of all. The fact that their lifespan is so relatively short just makes matters worse. She's likely the product of a "puppy mill" breeding situation, which brings out every dominant and recessive trait ... just about all of them bad. This may sound exceeding cruel ... but my suggestion is that you keep her as comfortable as possible ... she'll let you know when she doesn't want to put up with it anymore. If finances are an issue, and no other home is available, your only other alternative is to maintain her quality of life as best you can. I wish you and Sweetie Pie well.
