  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Tony is an Olde English Bulldogge-mix, male, 2 years of age.

We’re pretty sure Tony’s picture is next to the words, “Big Lug” in the dictionary! (A loving and lovable lug, to be sure.) Tony is all about finding himself a family to call his own and a nice comfy bed just right for snoozing. Without a doubt, Tony will appreciate any and all TLC and pampering he receives, and he’ll seek out his much-loved family members to snuggle with at the close of each day. A true-hearted canine, this is a guy who’s going to bond deeply with family members and be exceedingly loyal to them.

Wholly sincere and entirely devoted, but neither fawning nor demanding, Tony needs a responsible, caring owner with prior dog experience and strong leadership skills; this is a dog who can at times be single-minded and is not likely to listen if he senses he’s stronger minded than his owner. A confident, naturally authoritative leader who sets the rules and boundaries Tony needs right from the start, also lays the foundation, setting him up for success as the self-possessed and well-mannered canine companion he has shown himself to be when he knows what is expected.

An animated, intelligent, and curious boy who, like all dogs, needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy, his muscular appearance can be deceiving. Tony’s exercise needs are extremely modest and his stamina not so great either. For Tony, leisurely leashed walks, interactive play sessions, and a securely, fenced yard where he can romp and explore with his adored family members and on his own will meet nearly all of this big guy’s exercise needs. We think he’d benefit from and really enjoy training and socialization classes too. This will be an excellent way to establish a bond with him, meet some of his exercise needs, and reinforce good canine manners.

Tony is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. A faithful, people-loving dog, Tony needs and craves leadership and companionship, and he will certainly thrive as a much-loved, always-included solo canine family member. He will need to be the only animal in the household though.

Come meet Tony at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a dog or cat from the shelter: We adopt on a first come, first serve basis. You must come into the shelter and fill out an adoption application and put down a $10 non-refundable application fee to secure your spot for adoption. Currently the cost for adopting a shelter animal is $35. $10 is a non-refundable application fee, $25 is collected for the spay/neuter portion of the contract. Adopters sign a contract agreeing to have the dog/cat spayed or neutered within 30 days. We are currently offering a Voucher at the time of adoption. The voucher covers the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. There are 9 area Veterinarians that are participating in this program and the surgery must be done at one of these vets.

If you rent and want to adopt, before we start the adoption process, you must come in with a letter from your Landlord, with a copy of their picture ID, stating you may have an animal in your house. If you own or rent a mobile home or live in an Apartment complex, we must have a letter on the parks letterhead from the manager stating you can have an animal in your home.
