Derek is a 7 year old male English Bulldog. Derek is a great lad who is now looking for his forever home. He has previously been kenneled as a stud but is now loving life in a home. As you can see he is particularly fond of the sofa and given the chance is happy to lay all day watching the world go by and having a fuss.
He is not the most energetic of dogs but he does need gentle exercise to ensure he builds up his fitness and stamina. Derek is fine with other dog. He is such an affectionate dog, he loves to be close by, he loves any form of contact and is happiest snuggled on top of you on the sofa. Derek is still learning about personal space. As with most bulldogs, Derek snores like a trooper we think it adds to his charm, it does mean that the telly often needs turning up a notch!
Derek would like new owners who are around for most of the day and preferably with experience of bulldogs. He is great with cats. He has been good with all other dogs he has met. He would be fine as an only dog provided he had company for a good part of the day. He is now fully clean in the house and enjoying his walks, he wont ever win a marathon but he does enjoy a nice walk in the woods and has even been known to break into a trot.
Derek has been neutered, vaccinated, been micro chipped and is up to date with flea and worming treatment. He has also had eye surgery to correct one entropian eyelid, he is recovering well from surgery. He is currently on foster in Aldershot Hampshire.
