This is Midge, who also goes by Midge-let, Midge-ness, sMidgen, and a host of other names, because that's what you do when you love a dog for a long time. Midge came to South of the Bully from a (way) less than reputable breeder who instructed our patient vollie to smack her upside the head when she was bad, because pit bulls are stubborn. Wow. People really think like that. Needless to say, our little Midgey monkey was one messed up puppy who trusted no one, and can you blame her? Midge had a great time in her foster home, but we decided she needed a bit more guidance through her teenager months to get over her past abuse, so she moved in with our trainer and wow has she flourished! This once scared, reactive puppy has turned into an amazing asset for SOTB dogs and has been instrumental in turning so many lost souls around during her time with us. Midge and Poppa lead our training pack, and we can almost sit back and watch them work new dogs into a balanced, happy, confident state.

As much as we adore this dog, the time has come to put the effort into finding her the forever home she so truly deserves. Midge is 1.5 years old, she has not only gotten along with, she has guided dozens of dogs from a shell-shocked to happy with little effort on her part. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe this dog, she's truly all that. She's housebroken, crate trained, sticks to chewing on her own toys, excellent with dogs of every size and shape, and she can even be called off of chasing chickens without much effort. She has not lived with cats, and she'll probably indulge a chase at first, but she's pretty easy to direct, so we think she could do ok in a cat-owned home. She's a bit of a bull in a china shop when she plays, so older kids are the best bet for this gal. Her play style is typical rowdy bulldog, and while she will be careful with puppies, she may be overwhelming with little dogs. Midge thrives with a structured home life, she lives under the Nothing in Life is Free system and she does wonderfully with it. She's not a beginner's dog, but she'll be a delight for anyone who's looking for an intelligent, comical, naughty, funny, ridiculous bulldog. Midge comes with a lifetime of training support, she can also bunk with her trainer when you need to take a vacation. If you're looking for your next heart dog, she's right here waiting for you. Be awesome, this one's going to leave a mark when she moves on to her next adventure. Is this your dog? Email sotb.adoptions@gmail.com to get your Midge Party started!



Our adoption fee is $195. This covers spay/neuter, microchip, microchip registration, all age appropriate vaccines, and any needed vet care.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Approval Process for South of the Bully

• An Adoption Application must be completed and approved. We call and check vet references to make sure any current pets are up to date with vaccinations and check length of time under vet care. We review all their current pets and ask questions about their temperament to make sure the dog they want to adopt would be a good fit.

• If a dog has been chosen, a meet and greet is arranged if requested AFTER the application is approved. If they have other pets, we also like them to meet at this time, if possible.

• The final step is a home visit. If the home visit is approved the potential adopters can begin their 14 day trial adoption period. Our adoption fee is $195 which includes spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations and microchip. If for some reason the dog isn’t a fit in their home we refund $95 of the adoption fee within the 14 day trial period. This is all listed in our Adoption Contract.

• We offer training support and resources for the lifetime of the dog once adopted. Our contract states that if for any reason they cannot continue to provide care for one of our dogs that it be returned to our rescue.
