Honeywell, our previous feature dog was adopted by Kevin W. of PA!
This big handsome boy is Bert, a neutered male American Bulldog mix. I rescued Bert from the shelter when I was there to pick up another dog. I was toast the first time I saw him, sitting calmly and quietly at the front of his cage. I asked him to Sit, and he did...staring at me the whole time. I felt he was looking at me so intently, in the hopes that I would explain to him why he was there. I left without him that day, my heart in a knot over doing so. Later when chatting with one of my previous adopters Sarah, she offered to foster Bert. I jumped at the chance to save him, and get him down to her. He has thrived since settling into her home, but is still patiently waiting for a home of his own. Bert weighs in at 80 pounds of total love. He is 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. Bert is crate trained and housebroken. Although he lumbers around the house, given the opportunity he can be very fast and agile. :) His foster mom wonders how well he hears...but if he is hard of hearing, he compensates with his eyes and focus on you. He doesn't care for the cats in his foster home, so a home without them would be best. Bert loves his foster canine sister, but he can be selective of other dogs. Submissive females would be the best fit for him. He walks well on leash, and is learning manners while doing so. He would love a fenced in back yard to play in. 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 (Nanette.) Bert has been neutered, is vaccinated for rabies, distemper and bordetella. He is microcihpped and heartworm negative.
