Nola's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Nola's Story...
Nola is a 5 ½-year-old, 90 lb. female American Bulldog. She is spayed, vaccinated and heartworm negative. She is a sweet, well-mannered, obedient girl and is eager to please her owner. She is house-trained but is kenneled when left alone. She is good at walking on a leash and knows many commands including: sit, lay down, stay, come, wait, okay, shake, high-five, speak, leave it, etc.

Nola is a typical female bulldog with an alpha personality. She likes to be the boss of other dogs so she is looking for a home where she will be the only dog and doesn’t have to share her owner’s attention. She is not a dog that is socialized enough at this time for dog parks or daycare and a fenced yard is recommended. She has never been around cats but would most likely do best without them. She LOVES people but may “huff” at someone if she doesn’t know them at first. She will do great in a home without other animals and without small children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Des Moines 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 Des Moines 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 Bulldog breeders who help with Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Des Moines paves the way for another one to be saved.
