hello, long time reader, first time poster.

my name is jenn, and i don't own a bully (just one cat and an adorable 10 year old chow mix). i volunteer avidly (every weekend and special events) at my local animal shelter, where i've met many a wonderful bully. i love my shelter because they are non-breed specific and do not put down adoptable dogs... so i get to see every dog i fall in love with get a home. it's sad it can't be that way everywhere. come september i'll be moving off to the bay area (sf/oakland california) to continue college so i hope to do more work down there.

oh yeah forgot to add, one of my first loves down at the shelter when i started volunteering was this fella in my icon. his name is bowie, and he is a pit mix. bowie was a really special dog, not only because he had a great personality, but he was also deaf. a couple of our dedicated volunteers worked with him and shelled out money to buy him a vibrating collar. it took nearly a year, but bowie found his forever home several years ago.

You have to wait until the mods grant you access. When was your first post? I'm not sure how long it takes to get access I think around 1-2 days, just depends on when the mods can get to it. You can post pics here if you like or wait till you get access.

heheh, good idea! :)

here's a few more shots of bowie. i sure do miss him.

he has one ear that flops and one that doesn't.

he's a rather silly boy since he is affixed to relections and shadows.
Image

his adorable face

here are a few other adopted babies who caught my heart. most of my photos are shot behind bars since i usually take quick snap shot of them while they're in the holding pens (while their kennels are cleaned out in in the morning). it looks sad but i assure you the volunteers give them lots of attention and exersize and most (if not all) of the photos i have taken are of adopted dogs.

this is chloe. i fell in love with her hard. she was quite an angel.

daffy was quite a goof ball like his name suggests. he was love sick with annabell who was in the next kennel over. photos i took of him were used as inspiration for this piece of artwork i did for one of the shelter's special events. he's recently been adopted.

gigi had the looks of a beauty queen but no manners! a few dedicated folks worked hard with her and she was adopted shortly after arriving.

gracie was another one of my faaaavorites! (ssh! don't tell the others!) this would be the dog i would adopt if i were able to.
Image
Image
Image

jonny was a big fella! he had the most BEAUTIFUL black coat i've ever seen. deep and silky and dark as outer space.
Image
Image

i didn't get to know marcus that well, but he was quite an eye catcher. how can you risist that face?
Image
Image

rascal was a bully mix who was as sweet as they come.
Image
Image

and many others! this is the directory where i hold all the photos i take of our shelter dogs.

oh, and this isn't our dog (it's a pup from the caped dog services organization) but i thought it was too cute to pass up.
