Our big boy Peaty is ready to find his forever home! Peaty has been with Redwood Pals Rescue for a long time as his foster mom had hoped that he would stay with her forever. Unfortunately, recent health issues (hers, not his) have left her feeling that he really belongs in a home where he can engage in more activities than she can provide. Peaty is about four years old, an American Bulldog mix weighing in at about 80 pounds. Peaty loves to play with other dogs and has done well with both males and females in the medium to large size range (35 pounds and up). Peaty is not a candidate for a home with cats or small dogs due to some working prey drive. Peaty has some good training on board; he walks well on the leash, rides well in the car and can wait patiently there during errands, and has used good manners in stores and banks. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle with his favorite people. The vet is not his favorite place to visit, but has done well when treated gently and patiently.
If we could pick the perfect home for him, it would include a canine companion, adults who are confident with dogs and can convey their expectations, older children that would enjoy playing with him and teaching him new tricks and regular activity. Redwood Pals would include a consult with our local trainer to get everyone off on the right paw.
