Weight: 77 lbs

Good with other dogs: No
Good with cats: Probably not.
Good with kids: BBR Policy states no children under the age of 8+. Onyx likes to play bite at your hands / arms and doesn't know his own strength, so could hurt small children if not carefully monitored.
Object aggression: Onyx doesn't seem to be interested in any toys presented to him, so most likely would not be object aggressive.
Special Needs: Onyx has a history of skin problems, most likely due to food allergies and will require a high quality dog food. He also has a grade 3 heart murmur which will need monitoring throughout his life.
Medications: Onyx suffers from dry eye and will need medicated eye drops and eye lube the rest of his life, these medications cost apx $55/ month. Additionally will need heart worm and flea prevention, like all dogs.
Crate Trained: Yes
House Trained: Yes. Onyx had a couple accidents in house in first couple days of being in foster home, but now that he has a routine of going out, there have been no other problems
Physical Fence Required: No. Onyx goes outside to do his business and comes right back inside.
Adoption donation: TBD
My Ideal Home:
The perfect home for Onyx would be someone that is ok will allowing pets on their furniture. Like most bulldogs, Onyx likes to nap many times throughout the day and his favorite spot is on the sofa, whether alone or with his foster dad.
Intake info: Onyx was surrendered to BBR due to being aggressive towards the resident male bulldog in the home. However the aggression didn't present itself until about a week after arrival. BBR believes he may just be dog selective and may very well get along with another
