Steve is a bundle of energy. He definitely has a lot of puppy in him. He enjoys playing with toys but has not shown a lot of interest in playing with other dogs. This boy loves to cuddle and likes to snuggle up with you on the couch or the bed. He does need some work on his feedings because he acts like every meal is going to be his last (typical bulldog - perhaps a slow feed bowl would help).
Overall, Steve is a good boy and would do best in home that would help him exert the high amount of energy that he has. Once he fills out, he is going to be a big one so a home with older children would be best due to him not knowing his own strength.
Steve is beginning to understand his place in the pack and is learning what he can and cannot do with the other dogs. For those who adopt him, they need to understand that Steve is NOT your typical bulldog. He has a TON of energy and loves to play. Primarily, he enjoys to play with toys and humans and doesn't really play with the other dogs. This boy appears to gravitate towards one human and makes them his own. He really wants to be part of a family and all the joys that come it. He loves to cuddle on the couch and sleep in the bed. This boy is just a big baby and wants to be loved.
It is recommended that he goes to a home with previous bulldog experience since he is stubborn and needs to be redirected appropriately when he begins to play rough. He is young, so part of this is due to age but he does need someone that knows how to handle the pup and the stubbornness in him. Overall, Steve is a great boy and he will make a great addition to any family.
