Honeywell, our previous feature dog was adopted by Kevin W. of PA!
This big, smushable, handsome boy is Bert, a neutered male American Bulldog mix. I rescued Bert when his time was up at the shelter, and he is now living with a wonderful foster home, and thriving while he waits for a home of his own. Bert weighs in at 90 pounds of total love. He is an awesome soul, very gentle, and devoted to his foster parents. He doesn't realize his size, and would love to be a lap dog if possible, just to be as near to you as possible. He wants and craves human contact, with wet sloppy kisses being one of his favorite past-times. This goofy boy is very food motivated and as such has already learned the commands: stay, sit, out, come, and wait for release (hand signal command to eat) and is working on down, off, home and drop. Check out the video that I've posted that shows how well mannered he is. Bert is crate trained and housebroken. Although he lumbers around the house, given the opportunity he can be very fast and agile. :) He doesn't care for the cats in his foster home, so needs a home without them. Although he is fine with his foster canine sisters and brothers (he lives with 3 other small dogs, he is selective of other dogs, especially larger males. Submissive smaller females would be the best fit for him. Bert walks well on leash, learning manners while doing so. His foster parents would love to see him have a fenced in back yard to play in (they live in a town home, so freedom off leash is not possible in that environment.) In his foster mom's opinion, the ideal owner for Bert would be someone experienced with the breed, who is looking for companionship...someone who works from home, or would like a companion in the car etc. while running errands. Bert loves kids, but older kids would be best, simply because of his size and strength. Bert loves to play with his Kong, and fetch a tennis ball. Bert has no food or resource guarding issues, and takes treats from your hand gently (most of the time...sometimes he can get a bit enthusiastic.) If you have fallen for this big loveable lug, then please visit our website at www.WagginTrainRescue.org to fill out one of our online appilcations, making it out to my attention. Bert has been neutered, is vaccinated for rabies, distemper and bordetella. He is microcihpped and heartworm negative.
