Here we have the lovely Dilys, a 1 year old Bulldog Cross who came in to our care just before Christmas after previously being passed around a few homes in her short life.
Dilys is the sweetest girl but the lack of a loving secure home and training during her first year, means she is still very puppy like. It’s probably best to describe her as a bull in a china shop, she’s a strong girl and if she sees something she likes or wants, she’ll go all out to get it. She’ll also mouth like a puppy would, but is in no way aggressive, and she stops when you say ‘No’.
At some point someone has obviously let her play with their feet or slippers, as she thinks it’s a game to grab at your feet. She is responding to training and if this is continued in her new home, she’ll soon settle down.
Dilys loves other dogs and would do well in a home with a calm larger breed to help teach her some manners She may be too much for a smaller dog.
We have been told that Dilys does not like cats, she seems to ignore the cats she’s met while with us, but we will not rehome her with cats just in case. As she has not lived with children before, and because of her over the top nature we will not rehome to a home with children under 14 years old.
She would like a home with someone around to keep her company, she is ok to be left for a couple of hours. Her new owner will need to be experienced with bull breeds, she is a strong girl, so someone fit and able to walk her.
Dilys has been vaccinated, spayed, chipped, she’s all ready to start her new life with her perfect family, could that be you?
