    Actually, I got her in November, but she was so mangy and skinny she was hard to look at, let alone post up pictures of. She's 3/4 English bulldog and 1/4 American bulldog, her name is Eleanor. She'd been starved, abused, and bred multiple times and was only 2 years old. Here are a couple of before pics, I won't post many, since they are gross:

    Here's what she's looking like now:

    Good on you. She looks much healthier and MUCH happier. I’ve bought both of my pups, but the next will probably be a rescue.

    Great Job! You did well! Those before pictures push the need for public executions.

    That's sickening and awesome at the same time.
    I'm so glad the ending was the awesome part.
    Good on you man great ending to a tragic situation that makes me want to (let's just say) do unspeakable things to the people that would treat a dog or any animal like that.
    Man does the phrase makes my blood boil seem appropriate right now.
    Here's to you my friend....
    :cheers:

    How anyone mistreats a dog or animals in general makes me crazy angry... Good for you and thank you for helping that sweet dog.

    That's great! I'm always so glad when folks adopt hardcases and turn things around for them. I always have at least one pit or bully mix in my pack, but the fella we adopted last month is a shepherd mix.

    Believe me, it's best that I don't know who had this dog originally. But she's coming around in personality as much as physically. She'd wince when you'd reach to pet her from being hit so much. Go and cross your legs and she would duck, thinking you were gonna kick her. She still gets scared if I yell while watching football or so forth, so I'm having to learn to be quieter which isn't a bad thing according to my fiancee.

    You've got a great heart, Blue Ridge! It takes a very special person to nurse the abused back to health. Hats off to you, Brother!

    That’s great for both of you! I too have bought my dogs including 1 black lab and 2 Dobermans but I did get to rescue a Barney!

    He was in need of dental work and had been found on the side of the road, according to the shelter he had been in a kill shelter but they couldn’t do it and found him the no kill we found him at.

    I bought these two
