Toad's Story...
Name: Toad
Breed: Bulldog/Pit Bull cross
Age: Adult
Gender: Male

Remember where you were 4 years ago? Toad does...he had just come into rescue, a complete mess of allergies, infections, and neglect. We didn't know if he'd make it through another day let alone 4 years. Yes, Toad has been waiting for a forever home for FOUR long years. Why has a dog this great been sitting waiting? Because his allergies scare people off. Its true, his medical needs are higher than the average dog due to the allergies but they are extremely well controlled with weekly allergy injections, ear cleanings and ointment, and a limited ingredient food. Occasionally he will have flare ups of his skin itches and need a trip to the vet for a round of antibiotics and Benadryl but this happens very seldom now that his allergies are controlled with proper diet and shots. He is somewhat deaf from the surgeries he had years ago to remove the scar tissue and infections from his ears but he does hear whistles, high pitched noises, and can miraculously hear the sound of a bag of treats being opened a mile away it seems so some of that deafness might just be his bulldog stubbornness shining through. So, that's the "worst" part of Toad and what scares so many people away. His foster mom and/or our vet is happy to talk through the allergies more in depth with anyone interested. If he hasn't lost you yet, now onto the best parts of Toad. Toad loves people. LOVES them so much he would patiently sit for hours being petted, smooches on the kids, tolerates wearing halloween costumes (and he is so much fun to dress up!), being picked up and held like a baby, snuggled in bed, anything...Toad loves any and all attention. He is housetrained reliably (though as with any dog expect transition accidents), crates for the workday well, minds his manners in the house, knows a few basic commands, and is happy to spend his days following his people around, napping wherever they are. Jogging partner he will never be, but he sure loves walks. Toad is excellent with other pets and has never met a dog he didn't get along with. He is goofy, funny, hours of entertainment and cuddles, happy, and truly never has a bad day despite the hellish start life has handed him. Toad is safe in rescue, yes, but a foster home is nothing compared to a forever home. Toad is one of he longest residents of HHK9 and though his adoption will probably bring us some tears, we cannot wait to say goodbye and send him onto the forever home he so deserves.

Requirements: Medical special needs. Fenced yard or home committed to leash/tie-out when outside due to his hearing loss.

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with English Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
