Hello, my name is Lefty! Why is my name Lefty you ask? I wish I had an amazing, dramatic story as to why, but the truth is we just don’t know why I am missing an ear. The day I joined the rescue, I came out of my crate, and there I was, the One Eared Wonder!
I truly am a wonder you know. Having never known the pet life prior to joining Lucky Bulldogs Rescue, I have settled in quite well. I can’t believe I never had the pleasure of snoozing on leather couches before. And looking out the window to check on the neighbors? I can’t get enough! Have you ever snuggled your hooman on the couch after spending the day surveying your domain from the back of the couch? DEVINE! I never knew it could be this good. With that said, there are some things that I don’t particularly love yet but give me time and I’ll be ok. I don’t LOVE doors. They seem so big and ‘door-y’ so I scoot through as fast as I can in case they are going to get me. Sudden noises can be a bit scary, but once I realize I’m okay I settle down. My future family can continue teaching me all about pet life and provide love and patience as I learn about the little things.
I love kids, but I can be a “bull in a china shop” with littles so older elementary-age kids and up would be best. I have met a kitty once and didn’t really pay much attention to it so a home with cats is probably just fine. I like other dogs and get along with almost everyone. Once, my foster sister snapped at me so I snapped back, but Foster Ma yelled and I realized that was a big no-no and quit. I do want to add that Foster Sister started it and my Wonder Boy status is still intact. HA!
I am kennel-trained and do well overnight. During the day, I’d appreciate a mid-day potty break or even better someone who is home all day to let me out since sometimes it can be hard to “hold it” for more than 6 hours. I walk well on a leash for never having done it before. Sometimes I can pull a bit so my future family should be willing to practice basic leash skills with me. I am potty trained and love to spend time in the backyard exploring. A fenced yard would be a huge bonus!
Lefty has been neutered, is up to date on vaccinations, had his teeth cleaned, and is microchipped.
While in foster care, all our dogs are thoroughly vetted. Any discovered medical issues will be disclosed above. Our Lucky Bulldogs (and their smushie-faced buddies) are cleared by their vet for adoption prior to us accepting applications. All our dogs will be up to date on Rabies & DHPP vaccinations, up to date on Heartworm preventative after a negative Heartworm test, and spayed or neutered prior to being adopted out to their forever homes. Often times, our dogs are given dentals and sometimes nare-widening surgery if needed while under anesthesia. All surgical and medical history we have will be shared with adopters. Further details can be discussed with the foster volunteer during the phone interview for the applications that are chosen to proceed to the phone interview part of the adoption process.
All our dogs are crate trained unless otherwise noted on their "All About" pages.
We typically will accept applications for our available dogs for 1-2 weeks except in cases of overwhelming popularity where we may stop accepting new applicants sooner. Once we have stopped accepting applications, we will review them and proceed with a phone call with our top applications to chat about the dog being applied for, go over the adoption process, and answer any questions the potential adopter has. After phone calls take place, we will decide on our top applicant choice and proceed to contact them to schedule a home visit (in person or via video chat), and check vet and personal references before the adoption is ready to be completed. This process can take up to 6 weeks, but we do notify all applicants of the outcome.
