We have some fabulous news!
Reggie is home!
Reggie was collected by Emma and Colin at the weekend, and he has settled in so well already, he is such a beautiful chilled out boy.
We cannot congratulate Reggie and his new family without extending our heartfelt thank you’s to Debra Wilson who has fostered Reggie for a mammoth 7 months and nursed him through his surgeries and treatments.
You have been amazing, and we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for him.
Reggie is being the bestest boy (we knew he would be) for Emma and Colin who love having him.
He waited a long time for his new family, but it was worth the wait, we know he is home for good so welcome to the rest of your life Reggie.
Be a good boy, have fun and we look forward to following the next part of your journey.
A little of Reggie’s story below,
Reggie came into GBSR with his brother Hector.
Hector & Reggie came into us due to their owner being at work for long hours and they are craving attention. Unfortunately, after a death in the family the boys were not getting the care and attention they needed. Doing what was best for the boys their owner contacted us to see if we could help. Being such young boys, their needs weren’t being met like they needed.
The boys soon became our double trouble brothers, they are young, fun-loving, typical English bulldogs.
They definitely have that butter that wouldn’t melt faces, we all know and love. They are both cheeky young boys with bundles of charisma and in typical bulldog fashion they did like rough play but could get carried away.
The brothers were quickly adopted, but unfortunately, not every GBSR Adoption is a happily ever after.
Our wonderful Hector and Reggie just didn’t find their right fit, so they came back into foster with their very own Fairy Foster Mamma Debra and her family.
The boys started to get on each other’s nerves and having little spats, so we made the decision to separate them.
We thought now the boys had been put up for adoption separately they would soon have lots of applications, and Hector did receive some, but our poor Reggie was passed over.
The feedback was always the same, his eyes and chronic skin infection issues were putting people off.
Reggie has suffered terribly with chronic infections in his eyes, nose rope and paws.
We tried every treatment possible to help him and no amount of treatment made a difference.
After so many discussions with Reggie’s vet, and the reality that he would almost certainly become resistant to antibiotics the decision was made for Reggie to undergo surgery to remove his nose rope, and some of the webbing in his paws.
Reggie is healing beautifully and is a much happier boy. Now we could focus on finding his home.
Reggie can be shy and it take him a little time to show you just how charismatic he is, but with lots of love and attention he will be your ultimate bestie.
Once you earn his trust you will see what a fun loving, cheeky boy he is.
And in typical bulldog fashion Reggie can be stubborn, if he doesn’t want to do something he won’t, but would we have our beloved bullies any other way?

2 years old.
Can live with children:
Yes, dog savvy.
Can live with dogs:
Yes, calm laid-back dogs no entire.
Can live with cats:
Things to be aware of:
Reggie loves meeting people and dogs out on his walks and is always inquisitive but if a dog reacts aggressively towards him, he will react in defence. This is managed with verbal commands and removing him from the other dog’s space.
Reggie can on occasion toy guard.
Reggie will need ongoing eye drops and lubrication, to prevent dry eye.
With Reggie being on the larger side of life and a little stubborn all young children must be supervised as he may have the potential to knock them over. Any training put in place by his foster family must continue in his new home.
The ideal home:
Reggie would suit a home with older dog savvy children who will understand he will need his own space and plenty of naps as well as lots of love, snuggles and strokes.
We would love to see him in an active family home, where he is included in all daily activities of a family. Reggie can be left for 3-4 hours.
Reggie would be able to live with a calm doggy companion no entire dogs, one who he can learn from and would keep him in line.
Reggie will thrive in a family that can continue his training to ensure he reaches his full potential.
To help Reggie find the best possible home we have chosen to separate him from his brother. It was a hard decision but in this current climate we believe it is what is best for the boys.
Reggie it will absolutely melt your heart the moment you meet him. No surprise really that like his brother, it took him no time at all to steal ours, and he shares quite the fan club here at GBSR with his brother.
To take Reggie home to your family will insure that your home will forever be filled with so much love and the most wonderful entertainment.
