HI

Postby Bubba Gump » Tue Dec 16, 2008 9:15 am

Hi everyone, I'm a new "bully breed" owner and just wanted to say hello to everyone. We adopted Scrappy (he came with that name) from the shelter about 2 weeks ago. I had seen his picture on the internet from our local shelter and instantly fell in love. I wasnt even looking for another dog (we have a female wheaten who is 3) but I could not resist this guy. I sent a picture of him to my husband who promptly said NO...we dont need another dog! However I talked him into coming with me just to "see" him and he too fell in love! So 2 weeks later, after a bout with kennel cough and a visit to the vets office to get fixed we got to bring him home. I will admit I have always been afraid of "bullys" especially since I have 3 kids. My daughters are 16 and 14 but my son is only 4 and I was very concerned with bringing in another dog. Especially since he is an "unknown". I did get to speak to his previous owner who assured me he was raised with 4 kids and was a very good dog. He was right, so far this dog has found his way into all our hearts in just 2 weeks, I cant imagine life without him now! He follows us everywhere, is very calm and mellow in the house and loves my children! Thanks to Spammie for telling me about this site, and Im sorry to talk to so much!

:welcome:
Thx for rescuing! Scrappy isn't such a bad name, its better then Killer or Jaws, or some names that these poor pitties go into shelters with. Scrappy just reminds me of Scooby Doo's little cousin :)

I guess its an ok name, it just really does NOT fit him lol...I call him Bubba Gump because he is so mellow and calm. He smiles too! its the funniest thing..at first I thought he was showing his teeth at me and I got a little nervous, but he is just a happy dog and when you make a fuss over him and talk to him he smiles. :)

its because your pictures are too big. You'll need to resize them (if we're talking about your avatar anyway) if you want to post pictures in the thread, I usually use photobucket. You just copy paste the IMG link and you're good to go. To resize your pictures though you can find sites that will do it for you online, I think you have to resize to 150 or less.

no, his eyes are really droopy. I asked the vet about it and she said it was some condition that they could do surgery to fix but that it would be more cosmetic than anything.
