My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Bullfrog is a special kind of dog. Think of him as a cat in the form of a dog...a big dog. He is going to need a special kind of person who is going to give him space and allow Bullfrog to just be...well, Bullfrog. If you have ever known a cat, you will understand what we mean by this.

Bullfrog was picked up as a stray on the southside and taken in by a humane organization that tried their best to find him a home. He had been there a while (eight months) and so they reached out to us, thinking that a change in scenery may do him some good.

In the time that he has been with us we discovered that his teeth were a mess (he had to have 8 of them pulled). He has a degenerative condition in his neck. He does not like having his neck touched. Bullfrog does well in playgroup with the other dogs and is excellent about letting us know when he is in the mood for human company - or he if would rather just hang out on his bed.

If you are looking for a hiking buddy, snuggle bug, or a dog that you can wrestle with - that is not Bullfrog. If you are looking for a dog that would make a great companion for another laid back dog, we hope that you might consider Bullfrog. If you looking for a very intelligent dog that needs his space, we encourage you to come meet Bullfrog.
Interested? Come for a visit any day of the week - 365 days a year between 9am - 12pm. Hope to see you soon!

Additional adoption info

If all goes well and you decide to pursue adoption, you will be asked to complete a pre-adopt. Once your family, including any dogs, have also met with the dog you wish to adopt, your application will be submitted to the Adoption Committee for review. We estimate the pre-adoption process can take up to 14 days or longer.

Please note: AAS is committed to finding the best fit for each of our dogs. For this reason, we will accept multiple applications for a dog. In the case of multiple applications, we will select the applicant that is the best fit based on the needs of the dog.

Adoption fee for puppy/adult dogs is $280.00.
Adoption fee for senior dogs is $140.00.

Dogs qualify as a senior based on their stature/weight and age. The scale below shows the age at which a dog attains “senior” designation:

0-20 lbs: 11 years
21-50: 10 years
51-90: 8 years
91+: 7 years
