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. Benebones are my favorite. I am still working on my manners. I know sit, come, and sometimes stay. I am very treat motivated. However, I do get VERY excited and tend to jump on people. I like my foster brother (English Bulldog) and am interested in my foster cat siblings. Once I’m done playing I love to cuddle on the couch. I like to be as close to my humans as possible. 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 also get easily spooked by loud noises (the vacuum is not my friend) so a quiet environment would be best.
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 and my forever family should be prepared for that possibility. I used to not be able to do stairs but this has improved a lot (I still need supervised to make sure I don’t fall but don’t need help going up or down). I have a home therapy program with exercises to help my head tilt and core strength that needs done daily to help me continue to progress.
I am looking for a home that can give me all the love and attention I deserve. While I come with my set of special needs I am the sweetest girl and will make the best addition to a special family.
