English Bulldog "Stolen"

January 12th, 2004, 03:35 PM
My name is Adam I am 19 years old and I have Duchenes Muscular Dystrophy I have lost my dog Isabelle, while I was in hospital September and October last year, my family became homeless and my mom boarded Isabelle with Mary Coles who runs the bulldog rescue of central canada, we are members of the club and have been for the 4 years we have had Isabelle, it was through them that we found the breeder.
When we called to pick Isabelle up on October 18 2003 Mary Coles told my mom that she had to place Isabelle into a home as she thought that we were not coming back for her. Mary Coles knows how much Isabelle means to me, she is my life and I desperatly need her back, I am so sad with out her,
If anyone can help me find her, please help me find Isabelle.
p.s. I will post pictures of Isabelle within the week

OH so very sorry to hear that

What were the arrangements you had with the kennel when the dog was boarded?

Did you not visit her when she was in there?

Did you have a written contract and were you paying them to board her?

It was a verbal agreement that I had with the owner as my situation was somewhat special being between homes she was very reasonable with what would be the final cost to care for Isabelle until I found a place, and I did keep in contact with Mary with several phone calls within the 2 months, as well as she had 2 emergency phone numbers and the knowledge of Adam being at Southlake Regional health center.
With Adam being in a wheelchair I had to find both an accesable home as well as dogs allowed, this was not an easy task and it took a couple of months before I found a place.
I was also told by Mary that it would stress Isabelle to much if we came to visit her as Adam was allowed a visit while in hospital and I was going to pick her up for the day to see him.
