Current Status: HOMED
Paddy was our American Bulldog for AmBulldogRescue dog of the month for December 2018
Paddy's Story: Paddy was found with his partner, Kaylee at a horse fair in Ireland. The owner was trying to pass them on, so an Irish Rescue took them in. They had been waiting for their forever families a long time in Ireland, so Rescue Remedies offered Rescue places saving both Paddy's and Kaylee's lives. Paddy is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Paddy was in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is Ā£175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Paddy's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information:
29.07.18: Hi Lynne,
Did you get my pictures via text? The LOVELY Paddy the Ambull... he's a complete gent, he does have a friend Kaylee but we are trying to place separately as its more likely to be successful. Not sure anyone would take on both. If not let me know.
Thanks Mikey
We are taking Paddy & Kaylee they arrive 18th November

Paddy is a wonderful, friendly, very gentle giant. He was so patient while we fiddled about fitting his harness and he enjoyed a little plod around the woods to get his bearing and lots of fuss from his new best friend, Jim.

Paddy and his friend Kaylee enjoyed some free time in the paddock this afternoon. What endearing, lovely natured dogs they are. Kaylee loves a bit of play but Paddy is struggling on his legs at the moment and finds it difficult to join in. When Kaylee invited him to play he rolled around on the floor, bless him xx

we took a slightly rejuvinated paddy out today with kaylee - last week he was hobbling and on an involuntary go slow - a week later and he almost seemed a different dog walking a lot better and seemed a lot happier yes hes never going to break any ambull speed walking records but it was great to see him walking nicely before tiring a little bit at the end - he never wants too much walking - hope to walk you again soon topdog

I gave Paddy a short walk today, he ambles along slowly and happily and like his fellow bulldog Kaylee he's a really great dog and a lot of fun to be around and give attention to. He is a perfect dog for cuddling.

Here's Paddy the bulldog earlier. He has such a incredibly soft and friendly personality, he slowly plods along with you and is overjoyed to get affection and cuddles. He is only too happy to get hugged and cuddles. If you put your face near him he'll just gently kiss and lick your face. I envy whoever adopts this great dog.

Oh Paddy what a boy! I met him briefly today when Evie was bringing him back from his little amble and I have fallen in love and can`t stop thinking about him. He is seriously SOFT,CUDDLY and GORGEOUS. He does struggle with his legs bless him so he wouldn't want too much walking, he really would make a wonderful loving companion. It`s hard to think of him (and his pal Kaylee) in cold kennels, they need warm homes please :crossfingers.gif: .

Paddy was my guest of honour in the dog mobile yesterday as we sped around the M25 and headed to our vets for his 2nd vaccination. He topped the scales still 47 kilos so we are going to implement more walks for Paddy boy as he needs to shift the pounds (Kilos): Our vet wants at least 6 Kilos off so Paddy's New Year Diet came early.

Having said that his movement is much better and he seems to improve every week. Everytime I go by his kennel I stop and our eyes meet and he gets up and comes to his door for fuzz....Paddy is one big dollop of Icecream white chocolate flavour!

Here's big softie Paddy the bulldog making his endearing loving snorting sounds (turn volume up) and showing how friendly and soft he is. He is truly so easy and has a heart of gold! šŸ’› He's an older dog with some sore joints and he should be enjoying a warm home!

So I got to meet the chunky monkey Paddy today and take him on his Christmas walk. Well Iā€™m not entirely sure we can call it a walk really, more of a walk-Ette šŸ˜. Paddy was not really up for trying to reduce his waistline today and kept stopping for tickles during the walk. Really he was far more interested in my cheese and bum scratches but we made him do a bit of walking and kept the cheese to a minimum in order to help with the big DIET.

Paddy is an adorable soul but he could do with loosing quite a few pounds, especially as his elbows are really quite bad and the extra weight is definitely not helping. Despite all this he is a friendly chap and very easy to walk. He really should not be spending winter in kennels and I really hope his forever humans come soon.
