Vermont English Bulldog Rescue [SIV433]

2/14/16: This week is the Seven Days' Animal Issue and we are meeting some squishy-faced, wrinkly, drooling balls of love whose stories will melt your heart. Back in 1998, Dawna Pederzani founded the Vermont English Bulldog Rescue which became a non-profit in 2015. After teaming up with Karen Sturtevant, the doggie crusaders rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed 49 bulldogs last year.

The bulldog has experienced a huge surge in popularity, both in popular culture and among celebrities. In 2015 the American Kennel Club ranked the bulldog its 4th most popular breed. With success comes a high demand for the dog, which leads to overbreeding, a proliferation of puppy mills and an excess of unwanted dogs with expensive health problems.

Eva spends a Sunday with a bevy of bulldogs and their adoptive families to see what makes this dog so special.

    That is NOT how you carry a bulldog!
    You’re going to injure the dog’s shoulders like that!!!
    How do you NOT know that?!?!?!

  • Wife just brought me my first English bull . She’s 3 lots of yeast issues that’s OK because wife rescued her frome a drug house . Wife owns a grooming salon in murrells inlet sc. Huge help . She is the best dog . I am proud to add her to our family .

  • would love to have a Bulldog, but with my busy lifestyle I would probably be the least likely candidate just from the maintenance aspect, let alone forking out thousands for a dog on routine health. that being said they are beyond adorable. some thing about a plump bulldog passed out on your bed, couch, hallway, etc seems so comforting. quite the sacrifice of these ladies.

  • These dogs are stronger than most people that go through this

  • Thank you for what u do! Bulldogs are great creatures, thank u for giving them a second chance! I have a bulldog…its my profile pic

  • Bulldogs rock, I just adore them to pieces!

  • Things that some people can do for money are just… uhh!
    Realy. I couldn’t dare to hurt anny animal (especialy such loving and inteligent as dog). I wouldn’t be able to look in mirror

  • if I was not in school and had a job I will give anything for these dogs to be happy
