Children’s Book Stars a Lovable Bulldog, Advocates for Dog Rescue

Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog by Lita Eitner-England - 60 sec: Lita Eitner-England's first children's novel about Bulldogs takes place in England during the 1830's. Taken away from an ideal life on the Duke of Chathamworthshire's estate, Bullmina is forced to breed champions for the greedy Fortie Billingsley. When Fortie's head trainer, Andrew Cameron is ordered to kill the Bulldog, he makes a heart-wrenching decision and sets her free. Abandoned in London, Bullmina learns to live by her instincts. Bloody and near death, she is rescued by eleven-year old Lisette St. Germaine. Lisette falls in love with Bullmina only to have her heart broken when Bullmina is stolen by greedy thieves and forced to fight in the dogfight pits. Bullmina's triumph becomes the triumph of dogs everywhere because they will never be forced to fight in the dogfight pits again.  With rich, complex characters, Eitner-England paints a realistic picture of the miserable conditions dogs had to endure. The book is also about the decisions people make and the consequences of those decisions. Realizing that owning a dog can be expensive and time-consuming, Eitner-England has included a section at the end of the book with thoughtful questions about ownership and rescue should any of her readers decide to rescue a dog themselves.Order Now Link: — by IndiePubAuthorHouse on November 20, 2012 to People & Blogs (61 seconds)

Union City, California (EastBayDaily) — When she couldn’t find a good story about bulldogs for her daughter, Lita Eitner-England decided to write one, “Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog” (published by AuthorHouse). The story, featuring illustrations by Leslie Hoops-Wallace, gives young readers an uplifting story about a special dog rescue.

When Bullmina, the Duke’s red brindle bulldog, is taken away from Chathamworthshire Estate, her life changes forever. Abandoned and forced to live by her instincts, Bullmina is rescued, only to be stolen again and forced to fight in the dogfight pits of 1830’s London. Bullmina’s final rescue becomes the triumph of dogs all over England because the Duke and Duchess make sure that no dog will ever have to fight in the dogfight pits again.

“Our pets, some call them our four-legged children, change our lives in so many ways,” says Eitner-England, a passionate advocate for the rescue of dogs. “Rescuing an animal facing hard times is one of the greatest things you can do – for yourself and for the animal.”

In addition to the heartwarming story of Bullmina, Eitner-England has also included real-life dog rescue stories at the end of “Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog.” She also provides readers with a brief section about caring for bulldogs and information for people who would like to rescue a dog.

About the Author Lita Eitner-England, founder of The Bullmina Foundation, holds degrees in sociology, television and film from San Jose State University, which she uses to help her research, pace and substantiate her writing. Eitner-England is an advocate for dog rescue organizations, especially those rescuing bulldogs like her own, Tiffy, who served as the inspiration for “Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog.”

Eitner-England will donate proceeds from the sale of “Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog” to dog rescue organizations throughout the country.
