My likes: I like to relax in a sunny place, especially the deck. I like to be brushed and pet. I like meals and snacks. I will play a little with a toy and I will chew on a bone once in awhile. I like to go out in the car (I get in and out with a ramp) and I like to go visiting stores, vets, coffee shops. Mostly, I just like being wherever you are.
My dislikes: I don’t like getting my face washed or medication put in my ears or eyes. I don’t like to be left alone for too long.
My ideal home: A house where there is room for my bed, water, and toys on the first floor; I'm not good with stairs, so a single-story home would be a bonus, though I'm used to sleeping downstairs alone at night. Ideally, I will have access to a deck or yard where I can lay in the sun. I would do best as the only dog in the home.
My ideal adopter: Someone who just want to have me around and who are infinitely amused by my cuteness. I like to be in the middle of things and I take up quite a bit of space. The adopter will have to be willing to give me medication twice daily, continue on my diet so that I can get to a healthy weight, walk slowly with me as I build endurance, and play with me a little.
Additional info you might want to know about me: I like to sit near people with my back to them. I don't really like to be hugged or confined. If I get really excited, I might try to jump up and put my front paws on your knees, but I could never stay like that. I know how to sit and shake. and am 100% housebroken. I have a canine foster brother who is smaller than me, and I'm not sure how I feel about him—I haven't been aggressive, but foster mom says I am definitely the boss. As such, I'd do best as an only dog.
I'm currently on a diet, but I don't mind it! I am going to have to continue on a diet for quite awhile, so my new family will have to be dedicated to my weight-loss journey. I'm a very mellow guy, and don't care about loud noises, dogs on the other side of the fence or cats. I like to be brushed and play with toys. I go to my dog bed at night and sleep away the night snoring! I'm heat sensitive like any bulldog, but I like going places and trying new things—I use a ramp like a champ to get in and out of the car!
