Eddie – Now Adopted!

Eddie is home!

We are absolutely over the moon to announce that our gorgeous Eddie is home, and he hasn’t moved!!

After much discussion,

we made the decision to ask Eddie’s foster mummy, Lyndsey, if she would like to adopt her gorgeous boy.

This isn’t normal protocol, but taking into account how stressed he was when he first came into foster, it wouldn’t have been in his best interest if we were to move him again. So we popped the question and Lyndsey said. YESSSSS!!

So, with no further ado, will you please join us in wishing Lynsey huge congratulations on her beautiful boy Eddie.

Happy new beginnings, Eddie! We wish you many years of joy, love, and happiness with your furever mummy!

Adoption statement below,

Dogs name:



4 years old.

Current location:

Thornaby, Teesside.



Yes, dog savvy children.




Yes, calm and laid-back dogs.



Eddie is quite the character, he is cheeky, playful and entertaining.

Eddie loves to play whether that be with you, toys or his food bowls.

He has such an affectionate nature, always ready for a cuddle and loves to make you smile.


Eddie is a typical Bulldog; he is very outgoing and stubborn at times.

He loves to throw his toys around and will actively seek attention whether for play or affection.

Eddie is a nosey boy and will run to the door to greet people, so it is best that there are gates in place to prevent him dashing out the door.


Eddie needs an active but calm family home, with a family who will keep him involved in all that is daily family life.

Eddie is every bit a companion so will need someone home with him for the majority of the day.

A garden is a must for Eddie to play in and enjoy the sunshine when it is warm.

Eddie will benefit from another dog in the home, to teach him the routine and keep him company when his humans are away.


Eddie loves his walks; he enjoys meeting people and other dogs and will initiate play.

Eddie is currently on reduced exercise due to recent BOAS surgery so his walks must be calm and controlled as he heals.

Toilet trained:

Yes, Eddie is a good boy, but may have the odd accident initially as he learns a new routine.

Can be left:

Eddie is a pretty laid-back boy and will settle himself down, he can be left for up to 4hours.


Eddie loves to travel; he settles very well on the backseat using a seatbelt restraint.

Because of this we will accept applications of up to 4 hours away from his current location. We recommend using seatbelt restraint or travel crate whenever travelling with your dog.

Things to be aware of:

Eddie has recently had BOAS surgery; he is healing beautifully. We will guide his new family in how to care for him and manage his exercise.

Sometimes Eddie is excited to play but doesn’t realise his size, any young children in the home must be supervised, as he has the potential to jump and knock children over.

Children must understand that bulldogs need time to settle in and have space to rest peacefully and uninterrupted.

Additional information:

Eddie has the most incredible personality; he is so full of life that his antics will keep you entertained for many years to come. He has kept us all laughing from the moment he came into foster, and it has been a privilege to be apart of his journey and watch him thrive. He will be the most amazing addition to a very lucky family.

A little of Eddie’s story below,

Please welcome the lovely Eddie to our GBSR family!!

Eddie is a 4-year-old entire male that the saddest of surrenders.

Eddies owner has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour and while the family have tried to care for Eddie and manage their mum’s illness something had to give.

We had been in contact with them for some time and finally able to help.

Eddie didn’t have the best start to life. But his family took him from that and have shown him the life he deserves.

We have promised his family that we will make sure he only ever knows love, and we will do everything possible to make him happy.

Unfortunately, Eddie got very stressed when leaving his family and didn’t settle great in his first foster home, around the resident female. So, we made the decision to move him.

A huge thank you to Sharon & Amanda in the North East for coming to Eddies aid and transporting Eddie to his new foster mum Lyndsey. Especially as you are both still poorly.

Eddie has joined Lyndsey in the North East and has settled very well. Thank you for coming forward for this beautiful boy.

Eddie is already showing he is going to be quite the character, so we look forward to all his updates.
