Peach is a peach of a dog. She is practically perfect in every way. Her former family had to give her up as the baby was severely allergic to her. She is the sweetest, most loving, wonderful dog and a true family pet. She loves to lay on the couch and snuggle. She loves to chase a tennis ball in the yard. She loves to play with her human and dog foster siblings. She loves her morning walk and visiting the neighbors. She knows basic commands such as sit, but she really shows how smart she is when you ask her to shake. Her tongue sticky outness is EPIC. Foster ma loves to boop her tongue to see if she will pull it back in. She does, but not for long! I could go on and on, but I think you get it, Peach is a Peach!
Peach is potty trained, BUT she does have mild urinary incontinence. This sometimes happens in older Bulldogs or as a complications from being spayed. We aren't sure what the cause of her issue is, but it is 95% managed with two medications which cost roughly $50 a month. She has a slight drip when she's awake and if she gets excited, there may be a trickle. At night though, she can be leaky and should either wear a diaper or sleep on an absorbent material. Currently, she has washable doggie diapers that she wears when she is in the house. She doesn't mind wearing them and she knows once they are on she is allowed on the couch which is her favorite place to be. Diapering is a commitment which includes more laundry than normal, wiping her vulva twice daily with baby wipes, and a new found love for mopping your floors if you choose to selectively diaper. Please consider carefully if it is something you are ready to tackle.
Peach is kennel trained, sleeps through the night, walks on a leash, has been spayed, and is up to date on her vaccinations. If some drips and dribbles don't phase you then you should apply for Peach today. She is going to make a wonderful family dog for the right family.
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.
