"Two years ago our family attended the Bulldog Beauty Pageant in Long Beach where we met the SCBR team and learned about this great breed. We had thought about getting a bulldog for a long time. A year ago we finally submitted an application and met with SCBR volunteer Vicki. Within weeks she had found the perfect dog for us! When we met Butters it was love at first sight. We have never had a dog before and couldn't have made it through the first year of bulldog ownership without the help of SCBR and Vicki who always answered my emails and phone calls about dry noses, cleaning folds and tail pockets, putting in eye drops and more! Our newest family member never leaves our side and brings joy every day. We can't say enough about the great work SCBR does and are so thankful for the volunteers.."
