Welcome to this website. I started this website on January 18th, 2011 and am hoping to create a place where people with Spina Bifida Bulldogs can come together and support each other.
I got involved with spina bifida bulldogs when I started volunteering with SoCal Bulldog rescue. My first foster was a 6 month old SB puppy who was surrendered because her parents thought she was a perfect little bulldog. Unfortunately, after paying full price for a purebred dog, they realized that she was incontinent and did not know how to deal with the situation. My volunteer mentor, Lisa M., has been very supportive and provided a lot of information I wouldn’t have otherwise known to help care for Khloe.
While not all Spina Bifida dogs are created equally, some are able to living long lasting, rewarding and fulfilling lifestyles with the help of a diaper. This makes them a bit more prone to UTI’s (urinary tract infections) but does not prevent them from being the spirited and bullheaded dogs they are.
I have only been fostering for 2 months, but have learnt a wealth of information. I hope you can support me and all the Spina Bifida English Bulldogs out there!
