Summer

adopted 7/14

My family and I had the pleasure to find Summer last summer! We had been searching for that special dog who not only looked sweet and cuddly but also would give us the love and affection we always wanted from a dog.

We luckily came upon her webpage on petfinder.com! We were able to contact Brave Bully Rescue and were so amazed to have not only found an amazing companion but a trusting Rescue organization.

Talking to Monica and Catherine gave me so much confidence that Summer got the care she needed. Summer was one of the few, very fortunate dogs to be treated for distemper by Dr. Huddleston at Westheimer Animal Clinic-Bellaire. This was all thanks to the care of Brave Bully Rescue and their amazing connections. She also was provided amazing foster care by Catherine and her family and later on by Rhonda McCann.

Everyone was so helpful and getting Summer was no trouble. She was up to date on her vaccines and already spayed. Summer is now the life of our family and we cannot imagine our lives without her!

Thank you Brave Bully Rescue for everything and putting a smile not only on our faces but everyone who is lucky enough to meet her!

atticus

adopted 10/14

 

September 12, 2014 I lost my “partner in crime”, Boy, to cancer at the young age of six. In his short life, Boy had always been a game changer, he opened so many peoples minds as to what the bully breed is really all about. He was a 97 lb lap dog, wanting nothing more out of life than to be close to his human. My heart was broken. I cried everyday when I came home and that sweet familiar face was no longer sitting at the door waiting for me. I had a huge hole in my heart that I wasn’t sure could be filled again. However, I knew that in Boy’s death, he had given me his best gift…the chance to save another dog like him, allowing his legacy of love and tolerance to live on.

I started googling bully rescues in Houston, with a ridiculous urgency. I came across Brave Bully Rescue. They had so many dogs to choose from. I originally went to meet Blackjack, I thought he may be the dog I was meant to save. He was wonderful! A big ol’ sweet guy, that met all my expectations… but then I met Atticus. I’m a hopeless romantic when it comes to picking a dog, I feel like when it’s right, you just know…and that’s what happened with Atticus!  He had the most wonderful foster mom, Jill, who told me he snuck into the bathroom while she was showering to check on her. Tears immediately ran down my face, that’s what my Boy did. I knew right then and there, despite Atticus being smaller than I  wanted, or the color I never would’ve chosen, that he was undeniably the dog for me! You see, I went in thinking I was ready to rescue a dog. The truth is, Atticus was there to rescue me. The bond was instant for me. Right then I was ready to start the adoption process. It felt like forever. I probably drove Monica nuts, constantly bugging her to see what I needed to do next. In reality, looking back on the timeline, it didn’t take that long at all, I was just sooooo anxious.

October 10 was our official adoption day, and I could not have been any happier. Fast forward to today, nearly 3 months later, we are quite the dynamic duo. We have continued our training with Total Control K9 College, and I’m not sure who has more fun, Atticus or myself. We are hoping to join the Dean’s List and have some really cool things coming up in the future. When we’re not training you can usually find us napping together on the couch, this guy is a snuggle monster and I just can’t help but to be lazy with him! He is the King of the house! Except when the 2 tiny dogs knock him off his pedestal 🙂 and he never even bats an eye at them. Plus he’s got a big sister to play in the yard with! My home if full of laughter and smiles again, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. And my favorite thing of all…his face, at the front door, waiting for me to come home.

Tucker

adopted 10/14

Brave Bully Rescue made it an easy process to pick Tucker for our family.   They let us have a meet and greet before hand,  and explained the whole adoption process for me making it an easy decision!  I let them know the type of dog I was looking for and definitely needed to be kid friendly.   They recommended the perfect addition to our family!

 We had the privilege to adopt Tucker thru Brave Bully Rescue a few month now and we already know he is the perfect fit for our family!  He’s a sweetheart that loves to be loved by us!

 I fell in love with him the first time I saw him and I think the feeling is mutual.   He’s just so handsome and full of life! Tucker loves to go for walks and chew on bones. He loves taking rides just the two of us,  chasing the kids,  play football with them,  go to the dog park and play with other dogs.

He came already well trained and well behaved and I wouldn’t trade him for the world!!  He’s our lil boy!  We are so happy he chose our house to be his forever home!

 

Nyla Marie

Adopted  11/14

I was in a tragic car accident earlier this year and I was given another chance to live. After all my rehab and able to walk again, I knew I was ready for a companion.  Nyla was picked up as a stray by ACO and landed at a high-kill shelter. Her owners never came back for her even though she was microchipped. She was set for euthanasia, but just like me, Nyla got a second chance in life. She is an awesome, affectionate and protective female dog. Nyla has become part of my little family now and we all love her very much! She is the biggest snuggle bear ever! She knows my schedule already and if I stay up later than usual, I always find her curled up in a ball on my bed just waiting for me to come cuddle with her. Nyla is very obedient! All she wants to do is give love and play with her toys all day. I gave Nyla the middle name “Marie” and will have a last name once I get married!
