My story

Name’s Gumu and I’m gonna lay it all out there….The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The Good:

I’m fully house trained
I’m crate trained. I like to sleep in my crate and like a big boy, I go in on my own when tired.
I know basic obedience skills: come, sit, down, shake, roll-over and more!
I’m super sweet and LOVE to be with people.
I love to run—on the sidewalk, on a track, or along side a bike.
I’m eager to please and very food motivated, which is fantastic for training!
I love life.
I have a huge tongue. Which makes for great doggy kisses!
I will do anything for belly rubs!
I want to be loved!!

The Not So Good:
The right loving home will be able to handle the few quirks that make me so special!

I don’t like other dogs. I need the be the only pet, plain and simple. On leash walks around other animals are fine, but no no dog parks, doggie day care, or off leash hikes.
I may look like a tough guy, but the truth is I am a bit anxious and just want to know that I’m safe and loved. My confidence is improving though!
I have a strong personality and need firm, consistent boundaries. It takes a smart boy to admit that about himself…
I love giving kisses! Some people would put this under the “good” section, don’t you think?

The Ugly:

Some people think I’m so ugly I’m cute.

So there you have it. All my little secrets, now tell me some of yours?

Why adoption is a great option

Gumu (foster), a Portland English Bulldog/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Bulldog/Boxer for sale in Portland, or seeking a English Bulldog/Boxer dog from a breeder in Portland.

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