Three-legged French Bulldog Bethanee Hamilton is a cancer survivor and rescue dog with over 230,000 Instagram followers. It is named after the American surfer who survived a shark attack. The goal of the pupfluencer is to encourage the adoption of older, disabled puppies between episodes of TLC drag and red wine mishaps.
According to Van Bramer, Beth’s meteoric rise to stardom began during a windstorm in Portland. Van Bramer adopted Beth and posted updates on her recovery from leg surgery on Instagram. When the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation uploaded a slow-motion video of Beth donning a lion’s mane in the high winds of September 2017, followers flocked.
About six years ago, Beth was discovered abandoned on the side of the road. However, Pacific Northwest Bulldog Rescue took quick action to treat and rehabilitate Beth. Following the removal of her rear limb due to a malignant mast cell tumor, she found accommodation with Portland designer Lindsay Van Bramer a month later. Since then, the two have been practically hooked up.
Beth has now achieved international fame. Visitors to his Instagram account (@pardonthyfrench) can see a selection of images and videos of the barrel Frenchie playing in fields of daisies, sporting trendy hats, wigs and gold chains, and spending time with his younger brother Doc Holiday, a French bulldog who was saved from having a cleft palate. But Beth is best known for her outspokenness. Van Bramer says she “has always been pretty outspoken.” She has a lot to say about dating in particular, so singles beware.
To support music, mentorship and nature activities for her patients, Portland Children’s Cancer Association donors can purchase a plush replica of Beth during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. The stuffed animals were the activity that we thought would be enjoyable because, as Van Bramer explains, “Animals bring such joy into people’s lives”. “We thought it would serve as a sign of optimism for the kids,”
When Beth is not currently curled up sleeping, she and Van Bramer travel the country on fundraising tours to raise money for animal welfare organizations and pet shelters. Along with other Portland dog influencers like @freyandherdane (a boxer-bulldog and Great Dane combination) and @scoutgoldenretriever, Beth also makes frequent appearances (who died last year). The group used to meet for the occasional breakfast before the outbreak, according to Van Bramer.
Beth, along with other pet influencers, has demonstrated the human health benefits of pets, which have been backed up by numerous studies. According to Van Bramer, this explains why pet sites on social media are so common. We want people to be happy, laugh and escape the chaos of the world by visiting our page.
