What is this sweet thing doing without a family of her own?? Meadow is buttery soft, wrinkly, snuggly goodness with the wiggliest nub tail around!
Meadow has been with us since last summer when she was spotted as a stray in a suburb of Austin. Our volunteers spent several weeks trying to track and catch-up with her while she fended for herself and avoided capture. But as is the case with any bulldog, food is the way to the heart . . . and a good piece of brisket ended her time on the run. Starving, neglected, trauma filled . . . this girl finally made her way into rescue life.
It’s hard to know what Meadow’s life was like before she arrived at ABR, but these days she’s perfecting her cuddle skills - stealing hearts and laps along the way. This girl loves a good snack and is quick to show off her sit game accompanied by her perfectly gentle demand paw. Meadow sometimes can be a bit shy with new people and situations. That said, once she realizes you are her friend, she is the most loving, affectionate lap dog!
She exudes character and charm, and Meadow is a fabulous leash walker and totally house/crate trained! She sometimes barks when she sees other dogs, but has made huge strides in trusting her handler and understanding there's nothing for her to be afraid of. Meadow would do best in a home with no kids and no other pets. But she is eligible to be adopted outside of Texas, so share her with all your friends!
It’s hard to believe Meadow is still on the lookout for her forever home. One thing’s for sure, she is a shining beacon for lives changed by compassionate people, a little bit of luck, and a single piece of brisket.
Meadow is available for adoption to qualified adopters in the contiguous 48 states. ABR would prefer approved applicants to come to TX to meet their match, with their family and dog(s), but we recognized this isn’t always possible. In such cases, approved adopters should be willing to participate in video interviews with the entire family to meet their match virtually. Adopters must also provide a transportation plan for their new family member that will require approval from the ABR Board. This needs to be paid for by the adopter, in addition to the dog’s adoption fee. Adopters need to also be prepared arrange safe transport back to the Austin area, should adoption not work out. Please be prepared to provide vet and personal references in your application for us to contact when considering your family.
