Vermont English Bulldog Rescue [SIV433] 

2/14/16: This week is the Seven Days' Animal Issue and we are meeting some squishy-faced, wrinkly, drooling balls of love whose stories will melt your heart. Back in 1998, Dawna Pederzani founded the Vermont English Bulldog Rescue which became a non-profit in 2015. After teaming up with Karen Sturtevant, the doggie crusaders rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed 49 bulldogs last year.

The bulldog has experienced a huge surge in popularity, both in popular culture and among celebrities. In 2015 the American Kennel Club ranked the bulldog its 4th most popular breed. With success comes a high demand for the dog, which leads to overbreeding, a proliferation of puppy mills and an excess of unwanted dogs with expensive health problems.

Eva spends a Sunday with a bevy of bulldogs and their adoptive families to see what makes this dog so special.
