Success Stories

The following are just some of our success stories. I’d like to acknowledge the help of the Bull Terrier Club of Canada for some of these rescues.

Roxy: Roxy arrived in November 2014 with her Mom, Jackie from Vermont. These two were brought to the vet to be euthanized as the owner did not want them anymore. Read more…

Athena: Athena came to us in May 2015 as an Owner Surrender at 3 years old. Apparently she didn’t like cats much and after an owner error, things didn’t work out very well for the cat so Athena found herself homeless. Read more…

Kush: Kush came in as an “Owner Surrender” on Feb. 22, 2014. He spent quite awhile in foster care waiting for the perfect home and as always it came along in 2015. Read more…

Daphne: On Aug.16, 2014 Daphne went to a great “foster home” to win over their hearts and their resident dog and she did!  Read more…

China: On June 28, 2014 I went to pick up an “elderly” lady named China. Unfortunately the owner who had China from a puppy was going through a rough time so contacted us to find her another home.  Read more…

Cookie: Cookie formerly known as Christmas was one of the 22 Bull Terriers surrendered in December 2013. This beautiful tri colour was a bouncy, happy bully that just wanted to play all the time. She needed to learn a few things first like how to go up and down stairs which she quickly did.  Read more…

Huey: Huey arrived Feb.7/2014 from Toronto Animal Services as a shy but oh so handsome young man. He wasn’t a big bull terrier but he was in very good shape. Read more…

Bella: Bella arrived in Canada in December 2013 and narrowly escaped a life doomed in a puppy mill. She was saved by a man who loved bull terriers and brought her to Canada to be his own. Read more…

Snoopy: Snoopy arrived September 20, 2014 from the Montreal SPCA after having been returned to them twice for his rambunctious behaviour (nothing out of the ordinary for people who know the breed) and was suspected deaf. Read more…

Rosie: Rosie was one of the original 22 surrendered to the OSPCA last December and was adopted from there but things weren’t going so well so she was surrendered to us on September 25, 2014. Read more…

Zoe: On October 28, 2011 I received an email from a man who had just lost his 14 year old Bull Terrier named Oliver and he was inquiring about a rescue. On November 15, 2011 I received another email from a small shelter in Quebec who had found a female Bull Terrier tied up outside their door on October 23. Read more…

Cheeka: Cheeka came from Quebec as an “owner surrender” who was stated as liking some dogs but not all, especially the small ones. One of my Facebook friends, Monique from the US, spotted this girl on Kijiji and contacted the owner to remove immediately. Monique drove from her home in Vermont to Montreal and then to Kingston where Caper (my co-pilot) and I met them to bring her to Toronto. Read more…

Agnes: Agnes, formerly known as Booty (Boo) was one of the 22 Bull Terriers surrendered to the OSPCA who was stated as being “a little aggressive”. Brandon of The Dog Squad offered his home to foster this cute little “red head” and to work with her and inside of one month was there to stay. On “Family Day” 2014 Brandon and his wife Jane announced that Agnes was there to stay.  Read more…

Popeye: Popeye came in as an owner surrender in September 2013 at the age of 11. He celebrated his 12th Birthday on November 28, 2013 with me and after a clean bill of health went to his new wonderful forever home on December 24, 2013.  He is living a very happy and comfy life with his new sister Lucy and 2 cats.   Read more…

Lily: Lily came to me as an owner surrender at less then 1 year old. This fun loving energetic girl was a joy to foster. After testing clear for PLL and having her nail fixed and enduring one “season” she finally went to her new forever home in December of 2012.  She is now living the bull terrier dream with her big brother Max and her incredibly wonderful and patient humans. Read more…

Pixie: Pixie, formerly known as Peggy, is a 3 year old who came to us from a Montreal rescue in October 2012. Pixie is a beautiful black brindle girl with a sweet temperament who reminded me of my Ricky’s mom.  She had a a very large skin tag unlike any I’ve seen before and was not spayed. Read more…

Daisy: Daisy (formerly known as Macie) came in as an owner surrender in September of 2012. She is a fun loving girl who just loves playing ball. She did have some trust issues with strangers and other dogs but after spending some time here and around my dogs learning that not all is bad she was adopted to a great family in June 2013. Read more…

Jordy and Clementine: This pair arrived in July 2012 from the Montreal SPCA.  Accompanied by Mike, we set off to Kingston to meet these two. Jordy, formerly known as George, would be coming to my house for fostering and the pretty tri-colour girl who we hadn’t named yet was already offered a foster spot by a BTCC member who had a very handsome white bull terrier.  Read more…

Betty: In August 2011, I was contacted by an owner of two bull terriers regarding an “unplanned” litter of puppies and he needed help in placing one last female.  I had a family already waiting for a young female so I set out to Niagara Falls to pick her up. Her name would be Betty and  it was the shortest “foster” ever. Not even 24 hours and she was off to live her dream life with her new wonderful parents.  Read more…

Jerry and Luna: This rescue story is bitter sweet. In September of 2011 in the Province of Quebec was one of the biggest puppy mill raids recorded in Canada. Over 520 dogs were seized and taken to a secret location of the Humane Society International.  The dogs were held until December due to the investigation at which time we were contacted about the 2 bull terriers.  Read more…

Newman: In January 2011 I was contacted by Toronto Animal Services about a severely neglected bull terrier found as a stray, soon to be called “New Man”.  I picked him up immediately and we drove straight to the vet.  This beautiful tri colour bull terrier was emaciated and had a severe skin problem and was just in terrible shape overall. We had some work to do with this guy.   Read more…
