Acrodermatitis Test (LAD)
Puppies Affected by Lethal Acrodermatits (LAD) have characteristic skin lesions and fail to thrive. These lesion consist of Erythema and adherent scales, primary on the feet, elbows, hocks and muzzle. Hyperkeratosis of the foot pads also occurs. Dogs with LAD are also immunodeficent, so frequently suffer from skin infections.

The new DNA test for Lethal Acrodermatitis is available at the Animal Health Trust – this is a very easy to do cheek swab test and is currently on offer throughout January with a discount code reducing the price from £48 to £35.50.

Well worth taking advantage of this offer, it’s a once only test that I believe works the same as the PLL test in identifying and breeding with clear, carrier and affected.

What is a Bullie Walk?

A bullie walk is a walk organised by one of our co-ordinators or supporters in their local area. Everyone and every breed is welcome to attend. Its a good way of meeting people and supporting our rescue. Walks can vary in length but are often around 2 – 3 miles of steady walking with a stop at a café half way or at the end. All dogs are welcome, even if they are not too friendly with other 4-legged pals, so don’t be put off if you have a grumpy pup.

Walks are updated here and on our Facebook page. 100% of all money raised goes back into the rescue.

One of our ‘BULLIE’ dog walks will took place in Cleethorpes on September 25 2016, to raise awareness and funds.
We are aiming to:

  • Rescue, rehabilitate and re-home less fortunate Bull terriers.
  • Raise awareness in the breeding community to show that these dogs are a wonderful family pet.
  • Raise awareness with the public on the treatment of various conditions.
  • Promote a support group to offer help and advice.

One of the organisers, James Brown of Grimsby, said: “This is our first ‘bullie’ walk in Cleethorpes and we’re really looking forward to it.”It all started really when me and my wife, Michelle, adopted a beautiful Bull Terrier called Tia from the charity.

“Run entirely on donations they also make sure the dogs are neutered and inoculated before adoption.”Tia is nearly three-years-old now and we wouldn’t be with out her

“The charity doesn’t have a base or building, or no place to keep the dogs, they are an online charitable organisation who help find initially, foster homes for unwanted terriers and eventually their forever homes,” said James.
Everyone and every breed is welcome to attend the walk.

James added: “Its a good way of meeting people and supporting our rescue.
Walks can vary in length but are often around two to three miles of steady walking with a stop at a café half way or at the end.
And all dogs are welcome, even if they are not too friendly with other four-legged pals, so don’t be put off if you have a grumpy pup,” he added.

The walk will take place on Sunday September 25 2016, meeting at DN35 OAR from noon with a 1.30pm start

James said: “As always we promote good behaviour, please don’t forget poo bags!
Along the way on the walk, the Kingsway Kiosks will be our halfway cafe.
And they are looking forward to seeing us all and have a dogs oasis where they have water for all of the dogs while we have a cuppa and a chat with everyone before we walk back to the cars.

“There will be a donation of £2 per dog but feel free to give whatever you can afford.
We are going to have a limited number of wrist bands and car stickers from Adopt a Bull Terrier rescue available to buy on the day too.
And as my wife is into craft she will be eventually making plagues to sell for the charity.

“Often these dogs get a bad reputation, but they make wonderful pets.
And of course all proceeds go to Adopt a Bull Terrier rescue,” he added.
