Rehoming your bulldog
Having to find a new home for your bulldog can be very upsetting and many people feel that they’ve failed by having to go down this route. I assure you that you haven’t, and using the rescue system is the safest way of finding a home for your bulldog
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE RECOGNISED BULLDOG AND BULLDOG RESCUE CAN ONLY REHOME THE KENNEL CLUB RECOGNISED BREED OF BULLDOG
If you need to discuss the rehoming of your bulldog please contact us on 0871 200 2450 or request a call back. We can help you sort through any problems you may be experiencing or make the arrangements to rehome your dog in a vetted pet home.
Please ensure your dog is a Bulldog before you call, unfortunately we cannot rehome any other bull breed, American Bulldogs or any crossbred bulldog (ie: Victorian, Sussex, Old Tyme, Olde English etc).
All bulldogs re-homed via bulldog rescue will subsequently become our responsibility for life. Adopters are required to sign and agree that they shall never sell, breed or show with their bulldog and rescue will take him back if at any point he cannot stay in his new home. Any microchip present will be transferred to Bulldog Rescue ensuring we can keep an eye on your dog for life.
By using our re-homing service you are not only actively supporting the rescue but also helping to ensure that we have the funds available for those Bulldogs that need that little bit of extra care and attention.
Please don't dump him at the nearest animal shelter, we can also take in dogs that owners choose to gift into rescue. We have experienced foster homes around the country willing to take in those that cannot stay at home for whatever reason.
Please don't be afraid to call us, even if things have got out of hand, our priority will always be for the bulldog.
Our 0871 number is charged at 10p per minute with a 3p donation going direct to Bulldog Rescue. The alternative number is 02393872328
Find a home that matches your dog’s exact requirements from a very large waiting list
Find a home that doesn’t require your dog to travel huge distances as we will rehome him locally (within a 2 hour radius but not on your doorstep)
Find a home without your dog having to suffer the trauma of going into kennels
Wave a magic wand and make behavioral problems go away
Find a suitable new home in only a matter of hours or days, the process will take a minimum of a few weeks as we have to be sure that the family we select is the right family for your dog
Ensure that everything that happens is what’s best for YOUR DOG, it may be easier to advertise him in the paper or dump him in the local dogs home, but the family that end up with him will almost definitely NOT be the right family
Keep you informed of every stage of the rehoming
Run background checks on the new home and ensure a home check is undertaken before the new family meet you or your dog
Make sure the microchip (where inserted) is registered to the rescue to ensure he never ends up somewhere he shouldn’t
Keep an eye on your bulldog after he has moved to ensure he’s happy and being well looked after.
Retain the right of first refusal so if for any reason the new family cannot keep him at any point throughout the rest of his lifetime we will always take him back.
Be available to the new family for the rest of your dogs lifetime offering support and advice whenever it is needed.
WE WILL NOT:
Take responsibility for anything you have lied about on the intake form
Rehome any dog that you know has bitten, shown aggression towards people or that could be a danger to his new family. If you are rehoming him because of aggression towards people then the kindest thing you can do is put him to sleep. Please do NOT make the problem someone elses, aggressive behaviour does not disappear because he’s been rehomed – in fact it could make it worse.
