A rescue story

I'm winding down after a whirlwind travel schedule, so its time for a proper (interesting) post. This is the story of a weekend trip by dedicated rescuers for two English Bulldogs in need. The ladies live in Phoenix, the dogs were in Southern California. The Troupe: Terri and her daughter Jenna, plus two of their dogs, Ollie the Bulldog and Kujo the MinPin. Their Mission: pick up Dou Dou and Buba, bring them back to Phoenix and foster the little ones until they can find their fur-ever home.

Terri with Ollie, Jenna with Dou Dou

Dou Dou (pronounced Do-Do, apparently it means something special in Chinese) came from Taiwan. She is a very sweet girl. Second hand dogs rarely get adopted in Taiwan. Euthanasia rates are 90%+. A generous group sponsored Dou Dou's trip to the U.S.

Buba has been handed around a few times since his elderly family had to give him up.

Both dogs are listed on the Phoenix area Love a Bull site:

> Dou Dou's name will be changed. Lily is the leading candidate.

Terri's son Jay is a Marine, currently stationed at Camp Pendleton. He joined them for a well deserved break at the Del Mar dog beach. Below are a couple of pictures from there beach trip.

Terri and her husband Keith own and operate Kimbur pet wash in Surprise, AZ. Their link has been listed on my blog's side panel from the beginning. Jenna fosters dogs too and in her spare time cracks the whip at a local pest control company!

The whole gang: Terri & Jenna - from L to R: Ollie, Buba & Dou Dou
