Thanks for the info on finding English Bulldog breeders and rescues. I checked out the rescue in NS. Dolly is gorgeous. I have filled out an adoption app. I have also emailed the other people that I got info on. I really appreciate all the good stuff.

Little update on Dolly (pulled from Petfinder today .... this can definately go into the "why I hate people" category. Hopefully all will work out well with Dolly:
Due to the NUMEROUS amount of long distance phone calls, emails and applications Celtic Pets Received on DOLLY, it is very difficult to get back to everyone individually therefore, I will explain the UNUSUAL events that unfolded with Dolly. Her previous owners urgently requested me to rehome her, I started the process, recieved NUMEROUS interested parties ONLY to find out that the owners did place her with a very elderly couple (not a suitable match)...the elderly couple NEEDED to rehome her immediately but decided they were going to euthanize her. The vet clinic's they approached REFUSED to do this (thankfully). Hence they went to a local dog show, parked outside the facility with Dolly and were saying they "had to get rid of her"...PLEASE KEEP IN MIND OUR RESCUE KNEW NONE OF THIS AT THE TIME AND WERE LEAVING MESSAGES FOR THE PREVIOUS OWNER TO SEE HOW THE MEETING WITH DOLLY WENT - WE FOUND THIS OUT AFTER ALL WAS SAID AND DONE!!! There happen to be a lady there that does rescue and she took Dolly home with her and she privately started looking for a home for her...again, I was NOW trying to find out who the rescue person was to FORWARD ALL interested parties to her. WHEN I did find out where DOLLY was, the rescue person had already had a couple coming in to meet DOLLY and unfortunately and UNFAIRLY to the interested parties, she was unavailable. I have spent the time trying to locate Dolly as well as hopefully get all the emails, etc. forwarded.

Ugh. This is the kind of thing that happens all the time if you deal with people's pets, unless you have them sign a surrender form and give the animal to you.
I hope Dolly finally gets a responsible home.

It was nice to hear that the vet's refused to kill her. Would be nicer if all vets refused to kill otherwise healthy animals.

What a disappointment re: Dolly. We were disappointed as I am sure a number of other people were who were interested. In the meantime, we had also contacted a Canadian Hound Rescue. We adoped a gorgeous 3yr old Redbone Coonhound, his name is Redley. He is a sweetheart, fixed already, walks like a dream on a leash. His only quark is that he doesnt care of hardwood floors or linoleum at first he would splay out his legs like bambi on ice and shiver and shake, now he quivers slightly and will eventually make it across the floor, usually backward. Noone seems to know why, the family who gave him up had him for a year and a bit. They didnt try to get him over his fears. Redley was found on the side of the road with his brother. Assuming they were used by a hunter and either tracked an animal(s) too far or were abandoned.
Anyhow, he is cute, we want to help him over his fear, if anyone has suggestions, we are trying the coaxing with treats.. We find ourselves hopelessly in love with the beautiful creature. His eyes are the color of cinnamon.
