Looking for an English Bull Dog in Pa. to rescue or adopt.

Comment from SSG Kim Ison
Time June 1, 2009 at 1:44 pm

To whom it may concern,

My name is SSG Kimberly Ison and I am currently at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio Texas. I was Medevaced from a combat zone after 15 months due to acute and severe PTSD, depression, a crushed right wrist, and a TBI. (Traumatic Brain Injury).
Prior to my last deployment my entire life was devoted to my four dogs. They were my reason for living as I have no family. Two of them had to be put to sleep due to cancer while I was deployed. To say my heart was broken is an understatement.
Upon arriving at BAMC I had two mini strokes and a seizure. They have yet to determine why, or if it will happen again. During my stay here God richly blessed me with an angel herself named Patsy Swendson. She founded Penny’s from Heaven which is an organization devoted to bringing PTSD therapy dogs to the Soldier’s here at BAMC. Patsy and she and her therapy dogs have enabled many a wounded warrior to just get through another day. A hug from her, and one of the dogs by your side is better therapy than ANY pill that could ever be prescribed. No matter how bad my depression, anxiety, PTSD, or head injury effect me, just simply having one of the pups near allows me to get through the moment. The impact their presence has had, and continue to have on my life are beyond words.
I am writing to ask your assistance. I have been approved for a service dog and am allowed to have him here with me until my medical discharge. However I am having quite a hard time finding an organization to assist me with this. My needs are not extensive by any means. I am currently unable to leave my room as a simple trip to wal-mart can easily turn into a nightmare. I also have severe PTSD and sleepwalk bad enough that my bed has had to be alarmed. Unfortunately this doesn’t always work and I wake up in the closet, on the side walk, etc. All I really need is a furry angel to be there with me and look out for me while I sleep. The simple touch of a dog can easily bring me back from the depths of hell.
As I said I have been approved for a service dog while I am here and can provide many recommendations from those who know me and the quality of care that I would continue to provide for a service dog for the entirety of his life.

Any help you could give me would be much appreciated.

Comment from Blair Sorrel
Time December 17, 2010 at 4:54 pm

John, protect yourself, your dog walkers, and dogs from more outdoor shocks or electrocution. Happy safe holidays to you!


Blair Sorrel, Founder

Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed, self-protect.

Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie., plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness. And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to it.

Hello there…i just want to say that it’s so nice to read stories with more happy endings than sad ones. I have two dogs now…I had three until 4 weeks ago. The police came to my house on a search warrant and shot one of my pit bull terriers twice. She was not being agressive, she was running from the officer who followed her and shot her in our spare room. I have had a necropsy performed on her at the U of M and I also filed a complaint against the officer that shot my baby. All of my dogs were running to find a place to hide…none of my dogs barked or displayed any threatening behaviors. I feel that this was just plain murder. We now have our 3 year old female pit-who we rescued and we have a 4 year old bassett hound that we’ve had since he was 8 weeks old. If there is something more I can do, please let me know..thank you and God Bless….Liana

My friend rescued a dog from craigslist, only to find out a week later, the dog tested positive for Heart Worm Disease…we are trying to get Lilly’s story out to other pet owners/lovers to help fund the expensive medical protocol to combat Heart Worm Disease…We are NOT accepting money directly but rather asking you to donate to LILLY GOETZ through her charity account at Banfield Pet Hospital where she’s is being treated during this illness.


As of March 19, 2012 the BCF has $259.00 towards the $1000.00 needed to covered Heart Worm Disease Medical Protocol.

Five days after LILLY and I adopted each other, she was diagnosed by Dr Koos at Ft Myers Banfield Pet Hospital with Heartworm Disease. I am living on my own on Disability income and can not afford all of the extra care LILLY will need. My FB Friends are working to spread the word that Banfield Pet Hospital is helping through the BCF. Please join us so, TOGETHER WE CAN BRING GOOD HEALTH BACK TO LILLY!

Lilly had her EKG and heart Xrays Thursday, March 15th, Dr Koos said everything looks good for Lilly to begin her major battle against HEART WORM DISEASE.

The next phase begins April 11 & consists of 2 major injections which are very painful, leaving Lilly very sore and possibly sick for a time. Then more injections will follow over a 6 month period of time.

The on going Banfield Charitable Fund for Lilly will continue to accept Donations to help cover the cost…$1,000 not including costs that are already covered under my Pet Plan that I pay monthly for…EKG & xrays were $303 but were covered under the Plan.

If you would care to give Lilly and Jean, HOPE for the future, call Ft Myers Banfield 239.938.9980 and be SURE to tell them its for Lilly Goetz.

Please keep us both in your Prayers as we work thru this together. (-:

Can anyone advise me PLEASE My dog (Blue Heller little boy Jake six yr old) and I were attacked six hours ago. walking through neighborhood, stopped two black dogs loose, went up to owners door and all the sudden I heard little Jake screaming injured scream. I ran over to where Jake was and to my horror Jake was being attacked by her big black dog. I tried to get the dog off Jake, but couldn’t, during which time I was thrown to the ground by the dog and it continued to attack Jake. I had witnesses, got her info. She said she didnt see any wounds on Jake, and told me her dog had gotten the short end of the stick and had injuries. But when I asked her that I needed to see her dog who was inside by then, she refused to let me see him and offered to drive us home. 30 minutes after I got home, I saw red on jakes neck, as he is black and white, the fur was red. I looked and found he had a puncture wound. Not very long, it didn’t bleed any more. But I did text her about seeing if that big black dog had his shots, she said yes and that she was taking the dog to the vets in the morning. I don’t know what to do, I am bruised up but will be fine. Got Jake five months ago, tags not on him, he skin lotion owner gave me, shows a VET in San Antonio Tx. The lady who owned the dog asked me then, does jake need to go to the Vet? I looked up all kinds of sites on this after it happened, and seems they say that on the neck area, could be worse inside, just cant see the injuries, need a Vet. It was a tooth puncture, it has stopped bleeding and only bleed short time then started to scab over. He’s of course, my love and my heart. MY CONCERN IS: I don’t have any dog tags for him or shot records with me. I am concerned if Jake could be hurt inside, I wouldn’t know by looking at him, I if Jake was hurt then if I don’t file a police report, then maybe I would not get him treated or if GOD FORBID anything worse was to happen and I needed to take suit, then I would be not able to, because i let too much time pass or something.

My dog Gracie (40 lb Australian Shephard-Lab mix) and she is becoming more and more aggressive with strangers and visitors.
She has bitten many many people everyone is pushing me to have her put down. I find it morally wrong to kill a otherwise healthy dog but she is a liability. I would gladly pay to hae her live in a sanctuary. She is a sweet loving gal when not in fear from strangers. I have over the years tried Best Friends, ads, returning to the shelter, etc
I rent a room in my home and its becoming more and more impossible to find forgiving tenants.

Before I resort to that is there any holistic approach doctor or anyone ? Is there any pharmacological solution? It is fear-protection and food aggression. Is there anyone who could neurologically assess her to see if its a non-trainable mental disorder you would recommend? She was a runt of the litter when we got her 8 years ago, so it may be brain damage. It co,es on so suddenly without warning- She was spayed, and has insufficient pancreas. Her early training efforts were twarted by her starving from that disease until a vet diagnosed her problem. She failed at training efforts because I often leave for work. Work has been slim lately so $$ for this is also tight. She is unadoptable because of the cost of the enzymes in her protein only food, and her biting. Help save her- anyone?

Here’s the link, the comments by local eyewitnesses are very telling: I live near this town and let me tell you – the police forces in the towns of Springfield and Eugene, Oregon are very poorly trained and are extremely ultra-violent toward animals and people both – including profiling incidents (racial) and deliberately abusing homeless, elderly, mentally ill, as well as completely uncaring about animals. Abuse reports generally go uninvestigated much less prosecuted. What’s even worse is that the local Emergency Animal Hospital refused to treat the injured dog. I believe the dog died this afternoon 8-13-2014.

We are a young newlywed couple, and are hoping to raise some money towards his surgery, so we can afford to pay the rest ourselves. Any donation, as small as $1 would be more than appreciated.

and Kindle for e-book, I recommend it for dog
lovers of all ages; but especially those who have
shared golden moments with their canine friends
across the years. You might even find yourself
between the pages.

All the Best,

Thomas Scott

This is inhumane what you all are doing to these people and animals who have bonded. You need to stop! You were paid for the training and their dogs that were placed with them. Therefore you should break the tie’s as soon as that is done and leave these poor people and animals ALONE!!! I’m surprised no one has started a LAWSUIT against you!! This is just so wrong on so many levels. I will continue to repost the story’s of your asking for their animals back after their owner deceases. Because it is wrong…………loving family members adopt them loving animals after the owner has passed. Let it BE!!!!

I helped care for Bruce Hicks and his service dog Livy during the last years of Bruce’s life. As Livy was nine years old when Bruce died, it was his dying wish that I care for Livy during the last years of her life.

Over the last two years, Canine Partners for Life (CPL), the organization that trained Livy, has tried to take her away from our family through law suits and court actions.

Bruce’s family has spent thousands of dollars defending this case trying to save Livy, but the family can no longer afford to fight to do what is right for Livy and to honor Bruce’s dying wish. That is why we need your help.

Livy joined our family in 2013 after Bruce died. As Bruce was a paraplegic, Livy served as Bruce’s companion and service dog for seven years. Bruce stated in his will that upon his death, Livy was to live with my family, who had grown to love both Bruce and Livy.

Livy is so very happy with our family. She and Keribo, my own standard poodle, are like brother and sister. We care for Livy and let her live out her retirement in peace. She is a pampered princess and is rewarded for her years of service.

When I promised Bruce that I would care for Livy, I had no reason to believe I would not be not the rightful owner of Livy. Yet, CPL is suing Bruce’s family to take her away from what she thought was going to be her FUREVER HOME.

Two years ago, Megan Esherick from CPL asked Bruce just before his death, “If there is someone you would like [Livy] to be placed with, please provide us with their name and contact information.” Bruce sent my name as the person he wanted to care for Livy, his companion who had been by his side for seven year.

After his death, CPL demanded Livy’s return and filed suit against Bruce’s estate and me. They demand Livy be returned to Pennsylvania.

Livy is very fragile. She suffers from severe thunderstorm phobia and has diagnosed arthritis and pain in her legs. The average life of a standard poodle is 12 to 15 years. Livy is 11.

CPL sued the family, the estate, and me for the return of Livy. I am still confused as to why a would a not-for-profit service dog organization spend thousands of donors money to try to get take an old dog with health problems from her family.

On May 29, 2015 I was dismissed by the judge in the lawsuit. CPL continued to sue Bruce’s family. In Chester County, Pennsylvania, in a trial on November 19, 2015, the family’s attorney said CPL was demanding they be at the trial. Bruce’s family lives in Annapolis, Maryland.

Because of the financial burden, the family could no longer fight CPL. The family agreed to return Livy within 30 days.

We have not given up hope. We have started a PETition on and a Go Fund Me page to help us raise money to cover legal fees.

Please consider signing and sharing our PETition.
