Hundreds of Bulldogs are lost, abandoned, taken to animal shelters, or surrendered to rescue every year. This is the price of popularity. (The Bulldog is among the 24 most popular breeds.) Buyers are intrigued by the Bulldog’s many charms, only later to discover the special care that may come with their wrinkles, “pushed in” faces, unusual structure, and, in some cases, genetic faults from irresponsible breeding.

Unfortunately, many folks think dogs that end up in a rescue organization are all genetically and behaviorally inferior. But, it is not uncommon for us to get $1,500 to $3,000 bulldogs that have either outlived their usefulness or their novelty with impulsive owners who considered their dog a possession rather than a friend or member of the family, or simply did not really consider the time, effort and expense needed to be a dog owner.

Not all breeders will accept returns, so choices for giving up dogs can be limited to animal welfare organizations, such as rescues, or the owners trying to place their own dogs. Good rescues will evaluate the dog before accepting him/her (medically, behaviorally, and for breed confirmation), rehabilitate if necessary, and adopt the animal only when he/she is ready and to a home that matches and is realistic about the commitment necessary to provide the dog with the best home possible.

Choosing a rescued dog over a purchased pup will not solve the pet overpopulation problem (only responsible pet owners and breeders can do that), but it does give many of them a chance they otherwise would not have. Beyond doing a good deed, adopting a rescued dog can be the best addition to the family, and the best decision you ever make.
