October 29 Update: If you are looking for a lovable and loyal companion who is low key and low maintenance, look no further than this darling older gent!
George is what we like to call an ‘easy keeper’, completely house trained, with a good appetite and a sweet disposition. He is a bit hard of hearing due to his chronic ear infections, and a bit slow due to a touch of soreness in his hips, but he manages to get around just fine. All this boy really wants is a soft bed in which to spend his days, and a seat beside his humans on the couch in the evenings so he can snuggle up and snooze.
George has had chronic ear infections in the past, so his ears absolutely need to be cleaned daily; he also needs two daily meds for dry eye, but don't worry- he has no problem being given his medications. George does well on a leash, although he is a typical bulldog in that he is a bit stubborn when he isn’t in a walking mood.
George gets up and down the stairs at his foster home so he can sleep with the humans in the upstairs bedroom, but as he ages he might be better off in a home without too many stairs. He is great with other dogs, and fine with the cat and he has not been put in a crate in his foster home, he has done fine being left ‘free range’.
No one who has met George, from the kennel techs at VCA, to the neighborhood folks he meets on his walks has failed to fall in love with this cutie, and it breaks her heart a bit, but his foster Mom knows that it is time for Georgie boy to go his loving, lucky forever home.
Intake info: George came to us last year from a shelter. He finds himself back to us after his owners found themselves unable to care for his ears that they were told needed total ear canal ablation. As of now, we are treating the bacterial infections he has in hopes to provide him with some comfort. When he was to be adopted out last year, he attempted to bite his potential adopter (we aren't sure why but suspect he may have reminded him of someone from his past?) and at that time his fosters chose to adopt him. He has done well at the vet clinic where he is staying for now, though, minus an incident where he got rather upset when his ears were being messed with. We hope that with some aggressive medications, we can get his ears under control but whoever adopts him will need to continue with eye and ear meds, diligently!.
