The Vermont English Bulldog Rescue was founded by Dawna Pederzani in 1998. The organization was privately funded until it became a non-profit in 2015, and managed to rehome 49 bulldogs last year.
According to Seven Days, “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.”
The rescue says most of their bulldogs come from puppy mills or abusive situations and as heartbreaking as it is to see some of the situations these sweet pups have found themselves in, it’s so wonderful to see there are so many people who care about bullies so much.
A lot of people get bulldogs because they are cute, but they don’t realize the care they require – from wiping their wrinkles to potentially pricey surgeries. Bulldogs are amazing dogs, but it’s important adopters understand what they really need before bringing one of these bully beauties home.
You’re about to see a bevy of bulldogs and their adoptive families to understand what makes this dog so special!
