Well, this is a new one for us, an English Bulldog! And boy is Sassy a sweetie pie. If you aren’t familiar with the breed, please do some research before applying. Applicants with EB experience will be given preference. This is not an ‘easy’ breed to own, but we know it is very rewarding & EB owners are passionate about this breed.
Sassy appears to have all the typical traits of an EB, we are told. She can hear perfectly but chooses not to listen. She is the boss. She doesn’t leash walk in the traditional sense. We can put a harness on her & attach a leash, but she isn’t going anywhere or doing anything unless she wants to. And she definitely won’t do her potty duties on a leash. She will need a fence so she can safely take care of business when she arrives home.
She does okay with the calmer dogs who are closer to her size. She doesn’t like the little dogs & she is not a fan of the cat! We were told during her last litter, Sassy was ‘picked on’ & teased by children. She hasn’t been around small children in our care, but we think it would be safer to say “no small children, no cats, no small dogs” just to make sure we keep everyone, including Sassy, safe.
Sassy has a ton of those adorable English Bulldog rolls. Her family will have to keep an eye on her rolls, they need to be dried out sometimes. She does great just hanging in the house. She is pretty independent; she lumbers around just passing the day away. She won’t signal to go outside, so her family will need to establish a routine & get her set on it. She needs practice & patience to continue her potty-training plan.
We are hoping the perfect family is watching & will apply to take her home. She will be a fabulous best friend to binge with on the couch!
