Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories
Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories, Felicity Holiday Rescue Matching Pledge is a touching, heartbreaking, pet neglect rescue story, a fundraising plea you will want to join.
“Felicity” is a beautiful, sweet, loving 3-year-old French Bulldog abuse case that was recently rescued. She came to see me for a medical evaluation and urgent treatment.
Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories FELICITY EAR
The most noticeable finding was a large aural tumor that invaded her ear canals leading to severe painful otitis, the worse one was on the right ear but the left ear had similar pathology, a stenotic (closed down), calcified, painful, the diseased end-stage ear canal.
Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories FELICITY ITCH & TAIL
She also suffered from intensely itchy allergic dermatitis and a severe painful ulcerative tail fold moist dermatitis.
Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories TREATMENT
We immediately attended to her discomfort and itching by starting
- ANALGESICS: pain relief medication
- ITCH RELIEF: itch control RX
- TOPICAL: and topical treatment.
Heartbreaking Bulldog Rescue Stories DIAGNOSIS
I also took a biopsy from the tumor and started a preliminary diagnosis including a blood test and urine.
BULLDOG RESCUE FUNDING & TECA w BO EAR SURGERY
With the help and generosity of the bulldog-loving community, SCBR was able to raise enough funds to remove the first tumor the one on her right ear, we also surgically removed the infected calcified right ear canal (TECA w BO), a complex and expensive surgery.
Felicity’s surgery went well, we sent her home to her fostering family to heal and recover. She is coming along nicely and is now ready for her second total ear canal resection and bulla osteotomy (TECA w BO). At the same time, I am also planning a third operation to remove her abscessed painful infected corkscrew tail.
THANK YOU, A HAPPY HOLIDAY and A GREAT NEW YEAR

ABUSED FRENCH BULLDOG POST OP UPDATED
Felicity has had her stitches removed and she is over the first step in her recovery! This is fantastic news and I am very grateful to all of you who have donated and supported Felicity in this process! Thank you!
But with good news, there is often bad news and I have bad news about Felicity…. not only does she need surgery on her remaining ear, but come to find out she is in need of a tail amputation. I was hoping this was not the case, but a tail amputation was confirmed at her last appointment.
If you haven’t donated to Felicity’s cause, please consider doing so. A little goes a long way if everyone joins in!! Thank you from both of me and Felicity.

FELICITY FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUED SCBR UPDATE…
Felicity’s surgery was a success and here she is with her bandages off! Nicole is Felicity’s nurse at Pet4HealthyPet and Felicity just loves Nicole! It is stressful dropping Felicity off for such a complicated surgery and having a great nurse like Nicole makes it a little bit easier.
The next step for Felicity is to recover from her first surgery and address the horrible allergies she lives with while waiting for her second surgery. Although her right ear did have to be removed, her left ear will remain.
Currently, Felicity is still short donations for her second surgery by $2250!!
Without this amount of money, Felicity cannot have her second surgery.
I am begging you to take some of your Holiday spirits and make another, or a first, donation to Felicity’s well-being. Cuddly.com is taking donations and you can go to https://cuddly.com/donate/3106333/feliicty
to make a donation. Cuddly.com does not take a fee for hosting Felicity’s campaign.
And I understand many folks are skeptical of funding platforms, so Pet4HealthyPet is still taking donations for Felicity, and you can donate right over the phone to the veterinary clinic doing Felicity’s surgery…………
A gigantic THANK YOU to Skip, Director of SoCal Bulldog Rescue, and Dr, Kraemer and to Dr. Cechner for providing the surgery to help Felicity!!
And for all of you who have donated to Felicity, you are my angels for helping such a sick little dog!! Thank you from the depths of my soul.

FELICITY FRENCH BULLDOG RESCUED SCBR SECOND UPDATE
1st Procedure Completed & resting at home!
Dr. Cechner said Felicity’s surgery went very well. There is some minor eyelid paralysis in her right eye and he believes this is due to some tugging that the nerve experienced during the calcification extraction running from her inner ear all the way THROUGH the growth on the outside of her ear. This calcification is bone, it’s hard and doesn’t bend. Could you imagine having a pencil size bone running from your inner ear all the way OUT of your ear?!!! What happens when you try to turn your head? Or do you sneeze? Lay your head on your pillow? The pain had to be excruciating with every move of her head. And this calcification was due to neglect.
I didn’t realize how evil this ear neglect calcification can be until Nicole, Felicity’s wonderful nurse showed me the removed ear, which is shown in this post. The white pencil size glob in the middle of the ear is the broken-off calcification! It’s hard as a rock.
I hope the person who did this to Felicity, and the person who didn’t bother to help Felicity, but instead wanted to kill her, experience the same pain Felicity felt in her right ear and continues to feel in her left ear.
I’ll curb my devious side.
Felicity has lots of medications and I need to be very aware of any sign of her going into shock and/or organ failure. Should this happen it must be caught quickly or Felicity could die.
Ok, step 1 completed, first TECA-BO finished, next…
– wait 8 weeks and then TECA-BO on Felicity’s left ear,
– Work on her skin & allergy issues,
– get her on the correct food, medications & shampoo to bring her lifelong relief from allergens,
– finally, after her 2nd ear surgery recovery, Felicity will be spayed.
Then, Felicity will go to her forever home, which has patiently been waiting for her.
