Belle - STILL in search of her furever home!!

Belle no longer loves other dogs! Now that she's feeling better, she wants to rule the roost, so we're changing our search and looking for a home without other dogs where Belle can be queen of her castle!










UPDATE: Belle is doing SO well that she's ready for her FURever home! Belle has made great improvement in her foster home - she can now go in and out of the dog door on her own and walk around the yard just fine! She's put on some much-needed poundage and has really come back to life with some quality food and lots of love from her foster family.


Belle would like a FURever home where she can wander in the yard. Belle's been back to the neurologist and has gotten the OK to move on to her new life! Belle is a complete joy and wants to bring her "joie de vivre" and extreme joy into your life, too!


Belle's Previous Description:


Belle, or Grizabella, has been re-named for Grizabella from the musical CATS. In the original show, Grizabella was the glamour cat "chosen to be reborn." Just like Grizabella, Belle is being given a new chance at life.


Belle was removed from a home where she was being severely abused by a disturbed teenager and her parents, too. Belle is currently 15-20 pounds under weight, too, because she wasn't being fed properly. She was also dehydrated and in serious need of medical care. She had several broken bones that were not set or treated.


DESPITE HER TROUBLED PAST, Belle is sweet as pie. She has some neurological issues which give her trouble walking, but she's seeing a neurologist and is scheduled for an MRI soon. She CAN walk, but falls down a lot. We are going to do our best for her to give her some quality of life.


Belle is ALL HEART and is looking to adopt a person who has a huge heart as well.


Will you give Belle her foster or forever home?

Mia Is New To Resce!

Mia would love to have a fenced yard where she can run and play, and sunshine- filled rooms to snooze in. She is a healthy, energetic 5-year-old bulldog who rarely barks, isnt destructive, and is perfectly house-trained. In new situations she can be apprehensive, but warms up quickly. She will sit nicely and give her paw for a treat.

In her previous home, Mia spent a lot of time alone in a basement, after her owner moved in with a relative who didnt care for dogs. That was no fun for a gal who likes people and enjoys being outside.

Mia needs a family that will be patient the first week or two as she gets to know them. She would rather not be crated. You can gate her in a room where she can see you when necessary, but she would rather be right by your side, wherever you are.

Mia's adoption will be limited to the New Jersey, Southeastern PA, Delaware and Maryland area. For information about Mia or ANY of our adoptable dogs, please visit us at the HeaventSent Bulldog Rescue Official Website. For an application, please visit our Bulldog Adoption Online Application.

The Foster Family - by Pam Scherzer

Fostering IS the greatest NEED, and greatest ASSET, contributing the most to a smooth transition and continually proves to be responsible for the greatest percentage of successful, permanent re-homing of adoptable dogs.

Fostering is NOT an opportunity to “test” yourself, your family, or your existing pets as to how well you will co-exist with another bulldog in your household. You cannot judge an interaction with a traumatized dog and use it as a basis for your decision as to whether you should or should not add another dog to your household.

Dogs entering into a rescue program are being re-homed for any number of reasons. For some of these displaced dogs, we have up-to-date health and behavior histories, and very truthful backgrounds provided by families who are reluctantly surrendering a” family member”, wanting only the very best for them. The circumstances vary and are generally heartbreaking. In general, we can confidently place these dogs quickly into approved adoptive homes.

In direct contrast, a greater percentage of dogs coming into rescue have either been strayed, surrendered to shelters with no histories, or surrendered by families who want only to “get rid of” the dog for their own selfish and loveless reasons. It is these circumstances that present the dogs who need our careful assessment before they can be appropriately re-homed. Why? Aside from the obvious lack of information (not provided by shelter and strayed dogs), many surrendering families lie to us. They will purposely NOT disclose a temperament issue, or they may lie and say the dog HAS been aggressive if they think we will be sympathetic and act more quickly in their behalf. It is for these reasons primarily that a fostering arrangement is so important. It is an opportunity to interact with this dog and to learn the truth about him or her.

The Most Common Reasons for an Owner/Family to Surrender are:
1) Behavior issues they cannot or will not learn to manage.
2) The arrival of a human child, displacing their spoiled bulldog to the role of “pet”, something they expected the dog to understand.
3) The reality that a Bulldog really IS more high-maintenance than any other breed they have known.
4) Health issues, especially skin and allergy problems and sadly, those related to age.

The Foster Family's Responsibilities.
Your assessment of this dog is the most critical responsibility. You will be expected to carefully introduce him to normal daily life experiences ( i.e. leash walking , playing with toys, interacting with new people, manners, housebreaking habits, fears, aggression, food issues, reactions to unexpected noises and new things). You will not be responsible for housebreaking or training, but anything you can do to help will be appreciated. If the dog is on a normal dog food diet, you will be asked to provide that if we don’t have abundance. If the dog needs a vet visit (to OUR vet) you may be asked to go for that appointment if it is possible. Vet appointments, medication, and special foods are paid for by Heavensent Rescue. They are NOT your financial responsibility. If you chose to lavish your foster with new toys or beds or treats, that is your choice.

Your Opinion Matters
Whenever possible, we encourage the foster family to meet the approved adoptive family so that information about the dog and his or her habits can be passed along. You are the ones who have gotten to know him, and you will know the many little things that will make his transition easy. You are not required to participate if this meeting would be too emotional for you. We find, however, that is most cases it provides a sense of satisfaction for the foster family, or at least for the primary care giver. You have been an important part of somebody’s life and you deserve to see and to know that everything will be ok.

The Commitment to Foster:
1.Will you get attached?
Yes.

2. Will you feel like you want to keep the dog?
Probably.

3. For how long is a dog fostered?
Days, weeks, even months. It all depends on the needs of the dog and our ability to find the appropriate permanent home.

4. CAN you keep the dog?
Not if it has been matched to an approved family.

5. Will this dog feel like I am another person abandoning him or her?
No way!! While this dog has been living with you, whether it has been days, weeks or months, it has learned many things. He or she has heard his name used with kindness, and he has learned to be a part of a family. He has learned confidence and has come to expect each day of his life to be better than the day before. Dogs live “in the moment”.

6. So then what happens?
The day your foster goes to his or her forever home, YOU will be the one crying, and a new family will be the ones who are happy and excited. Your foster dog won’t be thinking of you or missing you, but will be thinking. “WOW ….how much better does it GET?” That night you will swear that you will never foster another dog. Within a day or two, you’ll want to know how your foster is doing, and you’ll let us know that you’d consider fostering again. And suddenly, you’ll be anxious to do it again. Although it’s hard to believe, those separations become easier with time. Your heart will swell with pride and satisfaction for the lives you’ve saved and the families you’ve helped to complete.
