Good News Part 1

11 Dec

Good news, everyone! Dug is…

Dug Adopted

In just one week, and only three days in his foster home (much to his foster mom’s delight and dismay), Dug now has a family to call his very own for the holiday season! While we were at this past Saturday’s adoption event, hosted by Adopt NY and John Bartlett, we met Lora & Mike. Lora volunteers at Manhattan’s Animal Care & Control and she, with her husband Mike, has opened her home several times to dogs who need a foster home. But when Mike saw Dug, he knew that this one was their keeper.

And now, despite having a new dog of their very own, they’re going to continue to foster dogs in need of a temporary home! So congratulations Lora, Mike & Dug, and thank you!

We also want to thank Adopt NY and John Bartlett, of course, for including us in this adoption event – this adoption wouldn’t have been possible without you! And a very special thanks to the Deja Foundation, who covered the cost of Dug’s veterinary boarding while he recovered from kennel cough.

New Adopt Me Jackets!

7 Dec

Just before Thanksgiving, I got this hankering for new “Adopt Me” vests for Bully Project‘s adoptable dogs. The ones from Houndgear.net are great, look nice, but are just sort of standard and don’t always fit our dogs very well. I really wanted to find something with a more customized look. Fortunately, one of our blogger friends, Cabana’s mom Mimi, who writes Ours for a Year, and her human daughter make unique “Adopt Me” jackets for foster dogs and rescue organizations.

In talking with Mimi about what I was looking for, I told her I would love something that would be reminiscent of the Bully Project logo.

And here is the AMAZING result:

Pretty awesome, huh? Mimi captured our logo perfectly and we are so thrilled! We ordered five of these jackets, one in each size available. Here’s to hoping we don’t have two dogs who simultaneously need the same size! But if we do, we’ll just order more, they’re that great!

Here are a couple of pictures of current adoptable, Dug, modeling the grey side:

Thank you so much, Mimi, for our beautiful new Adopt Me Jackets. If you want to order one (or more!) for your fosters or rescues, you can find them in Mimi’s Etsy Store.

Our dogs will be wearing their fancy, schmancy new Adopt Me Jackets tomorrow at the Adopt NY adoption event at John Bartlett‘s new pop-up shop in the TriBeCa neighborhood of Manhattan. Come say hi! For more information, go to Adopt NY’s website.

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Dug

3 Dec

“My name is Dug. I have just met you, and I love you.”

Disney/Pixar’s Up

That is exactly what this dog would say if he could speak, so Bully Project named him after the adorable canine character from Disney/Pixar’s hit film. Rescued from Manhattan Animal Care & Control, Dug is the happiest of little fellows around. And all he wants to do is lick your face.

At only 35 lbs, this pocket pittie is the perfect size for apartment living, but that doesn’t mean he also wouldn’t be great in a larger home. He’s friendly with all people and dogs, and seems to be amenable to cats, too! He is happily crate trained, house broken and hasn’t made a peep since we met him. He is a little skittish when first going outside, but recovers quickly with the help of some delicious american cheese or sliced turkey breast.

Dug is already neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. He’s definitely ready to move into a new home and live a happy life full of love, cuddles, licks and kisses. So, if you or anyone you know if looking for that perfect little pittie, please email us at bullyprojectnyc@gmail.com and apply to adopt Dug!
