Gary's Story...
Hello world, my name is Gary. I am 8 years young and a big guy of 73 pounds. My foster mom says I need to lose at least 13 lbs and since I love to sit in your lap, it’s probably best. I think she said it was for my health, but I think it’s so I fit on your lap better. I am currently on a very mild exercise plan and I am doing well. I go up and down the stairs and walk around my yard, oh and I am on this thing called the green bean diet. I am UTD on all veterinary care and my former owners were very good about my regular shots and vaccinations. I love my people and I don't bark or whine when I am in my crate. I am good with kids, but because I am a big guy, I would do best with kids over the age of 10. I love other dogs if they are smaller than me but sometimes I get aggressive with bigger dogs, you see I was turned over to Rescue because my former sister used to bully and attack me so my owner thought it would be best for me to be in a home where I wasn’t subject to being attacked. I would probably do better with smaller dogs or a more submissive dog.

My foster mom says I am incredibly mellow and that I sleep a lot but I do have my bully spurts. Did I say I LOVE my people?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gary, a Decatur English Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Bulldog for sale in Decatur, or seeking a English Bulldog dog from a breeder in Decatur.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Decatur already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Decatur breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Bulldog breeders who help with English Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Decatur paves the way for another one to be saved.
