Wilma and Betty
Breed: French Bulldog
Adopted by: Ellen Silverman
Wow, we had such a long road with these two lovable sisters, found as strays in rough shape with microchips and a previous owner who wanted nothing to do with them.
Wilma is completely deaf, and her sister Betty was not. They are very bonded, and we would not adopt them out separately.
We found them the perfect home in Encino, California but they were not able to come for them until the end of summer.
Foster mom Jania jumped on the scene, and took these two sisters home for many weeks, fattening them up and giving them the home setting they needed while they waited.
Ellen Silverman flew in from Los Angeles to pick up her new girls, and they greeted her with all the happiness and love they could give. Ellen was unsure if they were too big to fly them home, or if she would have to drive them, so she arranged for both. They have two first class tickets all ready to go but if they can’t make it they will drive all the way back to L.A.
These two girls will want for nothing. They will be California girls and they will be together forever. Their names will remain Wilma and Betty, and they have the new collars with ID tags already on them.
We wish you both a very happy life!
About Wilma and Betty:
We do believe that these two sweet girls are sisters, about 3 or 4 years. Wilma, the white one is completely deaf however, Betty is not. They are full of joy and love, they love each other, they play nicely with other dogs. They are very affectionate girls who would love a human family of their own. They are perfect with children and quite honestly will make two wonderful pets for someone. We will require that they are adopted together which we understand makes their plight more difficult but I’m going to remain steadfast with that and see to it that they always remain together.
Update on Wilma and Betty:
We have had Wilma and Betty examined by Dr. D yesterday. The usual problems, infection, ear infection, she does not feel like they are spayed. We have discovered that Wilma is completely deaf.
Both of them showed up as strays in Corinth, we were contacted and took them in while hoping to find their owners. Both girls are microchipped and registered to a person that we located.
This is what we know thus far about these two dogs. We do know the owners name, we paid to have a background check done on them to get any and all contact info on them.
This is what has been done so far, Laura has filed a report with Corinth animal control, they called her back and said they had no report of anyone saying they had lost a Frenchie. She has made a report with the microchip company. She has contacted the owners and left a message on her voice mail at home.
Laura has the husbands work phone number and has left a voice mail for him. Laura has followed up on multiple leads that have led nowhere. She has posted them to multiple Frenchie sites on Facebook. She has messaged them on Facebook. She has sent them an email that they have not responded to.
It seems abundantly clear that they have no interest in these dogs but we will continue to wait for a little while longer. We will take care of their medical needs and when their skin is healthy enough we will spay them and eventually put them up for adoption.
We feel like we have done much, much more than any animal control would do but if in the next week or 10 days these people respond to us we will speak with them about these girls, it just doesn’t seem likely at this point.
All inquiries should be sent to Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org
