Hello, my name is Harper and I am a loving and sweet female English bulldog! I am a mix of silly and sassy and want to be your best friend! Like a typical bulldog, I have my own ideas about life and enjoy being who I am – I know you will too! For all of those bulldog fans out there, yes, I am all bulldog in personality and size.  55 pounds of love and my bully traits have impressed the super fans here. 

I enjoy being in the fenced yard, taking naps and following my people around the house. I am getting a little older so don’t play like I used to but am a happy girl that is ready to find a nice calm home with comfy beds and lots of treats! My ideal forever home will not have many stairs, this ol’ girl just can’t jump around and like I used to, so one-level living would be great. I would also like a fenced yard, it isn’t my preference to go potty when on a leash, so having a fenced yard would be wonderful!

My people in my foster home are the best, they took me to the vet and she said that I do have some vision loss in my right eye. I was born with a slightly smaller eye and simply can't see well out of it. 

I really am a delightful girl who is ready to find my forever family. I promise to do my best to be a loyal and loving bestie! All I need now is to find a patient forever family who will love me unconditionally and never give up on me! If you are looking for a big personality to add sparkle to your life, then you have just met your perfect match! Love, Harper

Bulldogs are a member of the Brachycephalic breed and therefore have a host of health issues that may arise.  Because these dogs are new into our rescue, health issues in the future may arise that we are not aware of.  Some of these issues are allergies, eye issues, yeast infections, interdigital cysts, slipped disks in their back, breathing problems, among a host of others that can occur at any time or when seasons change. While breed experience is not required, we encourage you to thoroughly research the breed and its financial, medical, and environmental needs to be sure the breed is a good fit for you and your family.  It is estimated that the average bulldog owner spends $2,000 per year on medical needs. Harper did have surgery on her nares and soft palate to improve the quality of her breathing. This is reflected within her adoption fee.

Bulldogs are one of the most expensive dogs to own, maintain, and rescue and our adoption fees reflect such expenses.  The application process for bulldogs usually moves quite quickly as they are a popular breed, so we ask that adopters do research and be prepared for adoption at the time you submit your application.  They are happy, goofy, playful characters and we are excited you are taking the first steps into rescuing one!  

This dog requires an application fee.  This fee must be paid within 24 hours or your application will be considered void.    We will not review or contact applicants that have not completed the payment portion. Bulldog Applications will be responded to within 5 business days, after receipt of the application fee.  Please understand that paying the fee does not guarantee you will be approved to adopt the bulldog. Our goal is place bulldogs in homes that are suited for their individual needs. You may be willing and able to provide a great home, but if it doesn’t meet the specific needs of the bulldog, we will not approve your application.

ADOPTION EVENTS:   

Adoption events are updated as the foster home RSVP's to attend. Check back for updates on which events they will be attending. Please understand that all of our pets are in volunteer foster homes and sometimes "life" happens and the foster family cannot make it to their scheduled adoption event. If you are traveling from a far distance to meet a specific animal, please understand we cannot guarantee event attendance. You may wish to consider applying and setting up a private appointment. Private appointments are only scheduled after an application is submitted and approved.

 

ADOPTION PROCEDURE:

The first step in our process is to complete an online adoption application on our website:
Note: In most circumstances Underdog Rescue will only adopt within 60 miles of Minneapolis, MN. 
All of our foster animals can be seen by appointment with an approved adoption application. Contact us at http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/contact-us/ if you have further questions.

 

FOSTER CARE:

All of our animals are fostered in individual homes or doggie daycare facilities. While they are in our care, they are part of our families and given lots of love. We work on training, crate-training and socialization prior to adoption. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves. If you have an interest and ability to be a foster home, please visit our website  www.underdogrescuemn.com/foster-applications  and fill out a foster application.

 

NUTRITION:

Nutrition is vital to the rehabilitation and life-long health of our pets.  All of our foster animals are fed a premium diet such as NutriSource, Canidae, Orijen, Nature's Variety, Fromm, Pure Vita, Stella and Chewy's, Primal, or balanced raw diet.  All adopters are required to continue providing premium diets for the life of the animal.
