Facts about Nola

  • Breed: Bulldog Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
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.
