My Ideal Home:
Hi! My name is Agnes, Aggy for short, and I am a sweet bulldog puppy! I like to play and chew on EVERYTHING. My forever home will need to “puppy proof” their house and give me plenty of toys to chew on. I like my foster brother (English Bulldog) and am interested in my foster cat siblings. I sometimes try to chase them and my foster parents are working with me on this. Once I’m done playing I love to cuddle with you on the couch or take a nap in my dog bed, depends on my mood. I do well going for walks on the leash but I love to smell and explore so I will absolutely need to be on the leash at all times if not in a fenced in yard.
I have something called multifocal neurological disease which leads to quite a few difficulties for me. I have a head tilt which can be pretty severe at times and impact my balance, decreased vision in my right eye, an abnormal curvature of my spine, and my proprioceptive and vestibular systems are not working like they should (big fancy words for I have a really hard time knowing where my body is in space so I can be very very clumsy). This may lead to more health issues down the line but for right now my BIG restriction is stairs. I really need to find a home without stairs (or very few stairs that the family would be willing to gate off and help me navigate). It’s a big safety hazard as I have poor depth perception and have a hard time knowing where my hind legs are and how to coordinate use of them. I can (and will) fall down the stairs if I have access to them so this is very important. At this point my foster family helps me down the stairs with my harness when I need to access them, but as I get bigger and older this will become more difficult.
We’re still working on my medical care and getting me spayed, stay tuned for more updates while I’m on hold!
