Betty came to us when we came across her being given away for free on Craigslist. Not wanting this beautiful girl to fall into the wrong hands, we quickly made arrangements to pull her into rescue. We are so glad we were in a position to help this sweet girl get off to her forever life.
Betty is a roughly 18-month old American Bulldog. She is fully grown at 50 pounds. She is an active girl who would be best suited for a family that has knowledge of the breed and is committed to proving her proper daily exercise. Many apartments and condos have restrictions on bully breeds, so it would be a good idea to check with management prior to applying.
Betty currently lives with other dogs and does well with them. She loves to play, but her activity level is not attractive to all dogs, so it would be important that any resident dog is okay with a higher energy dog. She lives with an elder Boxer as well as a little Chi Mix and is very gentle with both, but she also likes to run! She has not been tested with cats, so her ability to co-exist with a kitty friend is unknown.
Betty is a smart and loving girl who learns quickly and takes to training well. She would make an excellent running buddy with proper conditioning and a good adventuring buddy for the right family.
Betty does not currently live with kids, but given her general disposition, we think she would do great in a family who has children that know how to be respectful of animals.
Betty is house and kennel trained. While she’s done great in her foster home, she will be best suited family for a family that understands that dogs can take time to acclimate to their new homes - which could include having accidents, crying in their kennel, and chewing on things they are not supposed to.
We expect our dogs to be adopted by families who plan to keep them as indoor pets and part of the family. We do not adopt to families who plan to keep dogs outside for an extended period of time, for example the entire workday or all night. We rescue the dogs from outside lives and never want them to experience that again.
Betty is fully vetted (spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative). She has no known health or allergy issues.
