At the Miami-Dade Animal Services, an overweight English bulldog was brought to the shelter on Christmas Eve by her owners who asked their dog be euthanized. Poor Juliet is overweight and has breathing problems; thankfully the shelter veterinarian examining the sweet dog denied the owners’ request.
Juliet is in need of rescue help.
“This sweet ENGLISH BULLDOG named Juliet is overweight. So what’s the big deal, she can be helped. She needs a foster that will give her the correct portion of nutritious food (either home recipe or very good dog food mixed with some meat if wished) to get her both to lose weight and exercise. Walks around the block and increased slowly and then to play in a play yard with a ball or some agility or in a pool where it will be easier for her to lose the weight and not a lot of stress of her joints. Have a feeling that she was fed poor nutrition and fed more than she should but lack of exercise is the culprit here. Needs active person/couple that will walk with her, play with her and give her attention. Go see her as she needs committed foster and this can be done easily.”
