Hi, I'm Wanda - nice to meet you! I'm a typical English Bulldog kinda gal both in personality and health.  Let's start with the health. I'm a healthy girl minus my eyes. You see, I was a commercial breeding mama for the first years of my life and didn't get the eye attention that I needed. I now take eye meds and drops for my dry eye and that will likely be lifelong. It's about $45 a month for my eye med, and  I am a good girl for my meds while sitting nicely when getting them.

As far as bulldog personality, I love to cuddle and lounge and nap and hang on the couch. I like doing that with my humans, but if other dogs crowd my space, I'll let em know I need more room. Foster mom says that's not always nice and I need to share, so I do correct nicely, but wouldn't mind a couch to myself. I am good with other dogs, but don't need one in my Forever Home. I would enjoy all the attention, pets, cuddles, and couch time to myself, in fact.  I do well with my leash walking and will potty on a leash. With that said, if the street is loud or busy, that can be a little scary for me, so if you don't have a fenced in yard, I just need a quiet, calm area to do my business in. I will go for short walks, but we don't need to do anything long or exhausting!  A calm house with low activity would be ideal for me. I keep my kennel clean, as long as your work days aren't longer than 8 hours.  I have the occasional accident inside, especially if someone else had an accident in that spot, but I'm getting better with a good routine and schedule.  I met some cats at the vet and ignored them, so I think we'd be fine if you have that. I haven't met too many kids, but I like humans of all sizes so far and as long as the kids were respectful of me and my space and not too loud, we should be good! Honestly, I just like doing whatever makes you happy. Knowing you pet and love on me is just about all I need. So, fill out that Bulldog application and let's meet! 

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.  
 

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.  

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.
