Carl's Story

Carl is an English Bulldog puppy we are treating with a severe case of mange.

Carl is a beautiful English Bulldog puppy surrendered by its owner due to his current medical condition, a severe case of Mange. We have been treating him and while he is recovering, his recovery is a very slow one. We anticipate that he will be up for adoption in late February. Won't you please help us with carls expensive treatments, and make a donation today?? You CAN make a difference!!

Hi Jeff!
I just wanted to reach out to you to tell you how well Carl is doing and how beyond happy we are to have added him to our family! He fit right into our little doggy family! He and our beagle Otto are best friends already who love to snuggle together in each other’s dog beds! He and Penny, our miniature dachshund, love to play together and are so good at sharing toys with one another! Carl is one of the most loveable, well behaved dogs we have ever met! He loves to go on our daily family walk! Everywhere we go people stop to say hi to him and he absolutely loves the attention! He is definitely a social butterfly! He is such a snuggler and gives the best puppy kisses (aka slobber!). We are so happy that he joined our family and he truly is an amazing dog! We are so lucky to have him!
Thanks again!
Amanda & Pat
