As a rescue volunteer from Lone Star Bulldog Rescue in Dallas, Texas I wanted to send you an update on a stray English bulldog you picked up and were kind enough to contact us about. "Meatball" rode here with a "pug caravan" and found himself at my house. I kept "Meatball" for two months. As he went through heartworm treatments, I renamed him "Bear", since many bulldogs named "Meatball", "Meatloaf', or "Meat" come into the rescue program. Bear brought me many laughs due to his constant chewing on toys, shaking his head, moving the furniture around, and trying to locate lost items. Hundreds of people wanted to adopt him due to his unusual black coat. After careful screening, Bear was adopted by a wonderful family with three kids, another bulldog, and lots of love to give Bear. He has moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Bear's life will be wonderful now that he is getting the love, toys, and attention he deserves. I have enclosed Bear's pictures along with a big Texas thank you! Thank you for all your help and for all you do. Each of you has a very hard, thankless job; but it is a job that must be done. Bear sends you bulldog hugs and kisses!
