Shorty is a very friendly little girl with lots of energy.  She enjoys people and will follow you everywhere. 

Likes - hard and soft toys, going on walks and being outdoors. She loves having her back and ears scratched, belly rubs and cuddling. 

 

Dislikes - none noted

 

Personality - happy and friendly. Not shy.

 

Temperament - very quiet, no barking. She is content to keep herself busy with toys. She does not demand attention. 

 

Energy level - initiates play with toys or a mop or broom. She is eager to go for walks on a leash. 

 

Good / Not good with cats, kids, men, strangers?  Don't know

 

House trained. She's catching on. As he has lived in a barn/ shed or kennel for her first 9 months of life, she is not going to be house trained in 3-4 weeks.  She is showing interest by going to the door to go out. She potties soon after she's outside. 

 

Crate trained - she happily goes into her crate on her own. Her door is always open. 

 

Requires a fenced yard - not necessarily.  She will need time to adjust to her new family and home.  If given adequate time for her to learn her boundaries and respond to recall,  she may not need a fence.

 

Walks well on a leash - YES 

 

Challenges - none noted

 

Any medical issues? Not an issue as much as awareness.  She was born with Short Spine syndrome. She is energetic and fast. She can go up stairs if they aren't too high or too many. Of course being a Bulldog, her family needs to be aware of warmer weather and breathing difficulties in humidity too. Then shorter walks would be preferred. 

 

What is the best kind of home?

 

Older children over 10 who will understand her physical limitations.  She is very short and can lose her balance on slippery floors. Children must be aware of bulldog's breathing during playtime and walks.  Not to let Shorty become over heated.
