Meet Bert, our 8-month old British Bulldog who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. Bert is a full of life bulldog, who is a loveable thug. He suffered a broken leg that required surgery prior to coming into rescue and has spent over 3 months recovering at the vets so is now ready to find a forever home and is enjoying the puppy hood he never had. Bert is a fun-loving dog who is always pleased to see you, loves playing with toys, stealing socks and generally being a young boisterous bull breed – he is a dog that makes you laugh everyday. Bert loves people and is always happy to see them. He can be boisterous and has no idea of his size so for this reason a home with older children would suit Bert as he will bowl into things when playing and is quite clumsy sometimes so older children would be best.
Bert is great with all dogs. He has no awareness of his size and can be bouncy around dogs smaller than him, but is just playful not aggressive in any way. Bert does not read other dogs body language and any new owner would need to be aware that even though Bert would love another dog to pieces, they may not feel the same. Bert has only recently been neutered so his over excitement will settle, but with this in mind he will be re homed as an only dog. Bert lives with a cat and two parrots and ignores the parrots totally. He does try and play with the cat and doesn’t read signals very well so would need a home with no cats, or a home with a confident cat to teach him cats are not for playing with.
Bert is housetrained and crate trained. He sleeps in the kitchen and is quite all night. The reason the foster home does this is Bert cannot distinguish between dog toys and human furniture. Bert is good with being left and may suitable for part time workers if they committed to a good walk before leaving him. Bert likes going for walks, he is just quite unfit currently so we are building up his daily walks in length so he improves his fitness. Bert travels well in the car.
Bert is very large bulldog and is a very energetic dog who needs a home that will be prepared to put in the time continuing his basic training, ideally owners that are bull breed experienced.. Bert needs a family that have researched the breed and understand the issues this type of dog could have. Bert is a typical young bull breed and needs owners that understand the breed and are not just looking for a popular breed of dog.
Bert needs a family that have people at home majority of the day and needs owners that will be patient with him while he settles in . He will trash your home jumping on sofa’s and generally making a mess, if not supervised. Bert is full of fun he is a loveable thug and will make someone a lovely loyal pet.
Bert is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Crewe, Cheshire.
