Wallace got his wings, suddenly at 2:45 on January 22, 2012. We knew he was an angel on earth and his owners did everything medically possible to keep him with us. Wallace cheated death from the moment he arrived to GEBR. He was within hours of death from starvation, could have died at any moment from a bowel perforation and survived. A short 3 months after adoption…, he was diagnosed with lymphoma. During treatment, he cheated death 3 times when he was hospitalized in very serious condition. He developed gall bladder disease in December, with little hope of improvement he rallied and beat that disease too. He had just started a new chemotherapy protocol and showed tremendous improvement with regression of the disease. He felt well enough to attend our meet up last weekend and Sonja said he even jogged across the yard a few days ago. The twinkle was back in his eye and it was obvious he was feeling much better. Please pray for Wallace and his family. Ron and Sonja have lost 3 bulldogs in less than 18 months: Jackson in November, 2010; Lucille in November, 2011 and now Wallace.

Prissy was the cherished pet of Gary, Kelley and Ava Hollowell, adopted 2 years ago from Adopt-a-Bull Rescue in FL. Prissy was the first personal rescue by GEBR director, Ruthann Phillips, well before GEBR was a reality.
Under Kelley’s care, Prissy blossomed into a beautiful girl. She had a wonderful life filled with love and security, something she hadn’t known for much of her life. Prissy was instrumental in bringing Kelley, Ruthann and Jenn with Florida English Bulldog Rescue together, leading to the creation of Georgia English Bulldog Rescue and The Bully Ball. Prissy had no idea how important she was, she only cared that she had love, a warm place to lay her head, and a full belly. She has helped hundreds of other bulldogs reach safety and enabled us to provide much needed medical care.
Prissy succumbed to a malignancy that hid well and progressed quickly. She was with her loved ones, holding her in their arms as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Even though Prissy is gone, her legacy will live on through GEBR and The Bully Ball. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of bulldogs will benefit from her very existence well after all of us have crossed the bridge. Prissy, we miss you every day, there is a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.
