So, we've had Tubby going on about five years now and I always knew that he would need a companion. Even though he has us and we love and adore him until the end of time we just figured it was time for him to find a friend in a fellow canine. I went on the search as soon as Donovan and I had finished having the conversation or maybe while we were having the conversation, I don’t remember all I remember is yay we’re going to get another fur baby!
We had already tried with one of Donovan’s friends female dogs but she was way too aggressive and mean to my Tubby Wubby so the bitch had to go. We kept her for about a month, month in a half and then she began to knawl at Tubby’s ears and became too aggressive towards him. So, we decided to give her back to Donovan’s friend we figured maybe she was not happy with us and it be better if she goes back to her original owner.
So, for a few years we looked high and low for another fur baby for my Wubs. We looked on craigslist and we found some pups that seemed promising but then they ended up either being way too pricy or the timing was off, and the breeder would say they weren’t willing to hold the pup and blah blah blah. By now we all know that Facebook have millions upon millions of groups you can join. One day while Donovan and I was chilling the subject of a second dog came up again, so I said to myself, self, find a local pet adoption group/page in the local area. Of course, several popped up and I joined them all.
Continuing on to maybe last week Thursday, the whole family was in the garage and we had been talking to Merah about what kind of dog she wants because she was due to get one once she turned ten of course she was looking into the bully family by looking at the French Bulldog. Unfortunately, we were unable to successfully find a French Bulldog full breed. The funny thing though was that I just so happen to go and look on all the pet adoption pages and groups I joined on Facebook. While scrolling I came across this little beauty in the photo. I was like oh my gosh she is too adorable. The first thing I looked at on the post was the number of likes and comments, she had a lot! I was so devastated but not discouraged. I private messaged the user who created the post and asked was she still available for rehoming, with fingers crossed I waited for her to write back and lo and behold she was still available! I can’t begin to tell you guys how happy I was. The first thing I did of course was write her back and negotiate a price, the second thing I did was talk to Donovan about it and show him the picture of her. I then had to spread the good news to the girls...
because let’s face it this is major news; we’re talking about adding another family member to the Keaton gang!
She is an Olde English Buldogge she was born on January 26,2020. I went to Facebook for suggested names but to be honest I didn’t think any were unique. So, I decided that I would name her Ladee. She’s my Ladee my lovie lovie lumpkins she’s my sweetie poo. I’m excited for the girls and I but I’m even more excited for my Wubby because he needs another fur buddy to go and rip and run the yard with. I know that in the near future there will be some puppies in the mix, and we plan to keep every single one and then get the babies fixed so things won’t get out of control. I told the girls at the most I’ll allow us to have six dogs that’s my cut off. Below I will put some information on Tubby’s breed (American Bulldog) as well as Ladee’s breed (Olde English Buldogge).
Tubby, An American Bulldog is an energetic, active working dog, the American Bulldog exudes a dominant, powerful and athletic appearance, with strong muscles and substantial boning. He is recognized for his strength, courage and working abilities, whether guarding property or driving livestock.
The history of Tubby and Ladee’s breed originates in England, the general bulldog type began as a working dog that drove cattle and guarded his master’s property. Known for his strength, courage and ease around livestock, the breed began being used for bull baiting before it was outlawed in England. Consequently, following the ban, the breed was replaced with the less athletic, shorter and stockier English Bulldog. Meanwhile, the original bulldog type was preserved by working class immigrants, who brought them on their journey to America to use as all-around working dogs on farms and ranches in the South. The breed nearly became extinct after World War II, but a returning war veteran named John D. Johnson worked to revive the breed alongside Alan Scott and other breeders. From here came the Johnson and Scott types the former being the “standard” (a sleek, athletic dog built for performance) and the latter being referred to as the “bully” (a bulkier, heavier dog with more muscle mass). Despite these differences, Johnson and Scott maintained the breed’s overall health and working abilities. Today, the modern American Bulldog as we know it remains a well-rounded working dog, courageous guard dog and faithful family companion. The United Kennel Club recognized the American Bulldog in 1999.
Ladee, an Olde English Bulldogge is a muscular, medium sized dog of great strength, stability and athleticism. He is well balanced and proportioned, with no features exaggerated or standing out. He has the appearance of a dog capable of doing his original job, bull baitingThe Olde English Bulldogge is a loyal and courageous dog breed with a stable temperament. They get on very well with children and are naturally very protective of them. Their normal disposition is happy, out-going, eager to please and trustworthy.
You guys can see how excited I am about this because I'm posting about her. In the Keaton family we love us some cute animals and she is one adorable pup. Watch my social media platforms because I will be posting a video when the two of them meet.
After all is said and done, more is said than done....
