Seriously? Betty isn’t adopted yet?

I can’t believe that we are in the middle of February already, that we’ve had Betty since Christmas, and she is not yet adopted!

And, I recently read that bulldogs are currently the most popular dogs in Los Angeles–why isn’t our phone ringing off the hook??

An Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, we rescued Betty from one of the LA shelters, where she was an owner turn because they were no longer able to afford to keep her (something we have seen way too much of over the past couple of years). Betty was one of the shelter staffs’ favorites, not only because of her great look. but for her gentle, motherly personality. You should see how daintily she takes a treat from your hand and how patient she is with puppies!


Although I love spending my time at adoptions with Betty, I want her to have her forever home, so I thought maybe I’d do some research to pass on and educate people about Alapahas and to let everyone know what a fabulous dog we have!

Alapaha Blue Blood Bull Dogs are a rare breed that are believed to have been developed in the Alapaha River region of Southern Georgia. They are recognized for their intelligence, athleticism, and protective nature. They are fast learners and respond well to positive reinforcement. Alapahas may do well in an apartment if they are sufficiently exercised. They are very inactive indoors, and will do best with at least an average-sized yard. Historically, they were used for working cattle and catching hogs, and therefore their muscles are long and powerful, and must be exercised regularly. These athletic dogs demand exercise, enjoy long walks, running around and playing.

Well, now you know just about everything you need to know about Alapahas. Isn’t it time to come and meet Betty? She’ll be waiting for you!
