23 Jun Clementine
Clementine is a 4-year-old, female, AKC registered English Bulldog. She was surrendered to IBR from a local breeder. She’s a smaller bully at only 38 lbs, but makes up for it with her very short legs and the cutest tongue that is always hanging out!
At her initial vet visit it was discovered that she has double ear infections, an eye infection, mild skin infection, and a UTI. She is currently on a course of antibiotics and medications for her ears and eyes. She takes her meds like a perfect little lady and sits like an angel for ear and eye drops. The vet said she is suffering from chronic dry eyes and will require drops for the remainder of her life. She is getting spayed soon and should be ready for adoption shortly.
In her foster home, Clementine resides with a cat, and for the most part, she just completely ignores her. Clementine has claimed her foster mom as her own and will occasionally growl at the cat, and sometimes will chase her away.
This past weekend Clementine spent the weekend at the lake sharing her foster mom with family, friends, and all their fur babies. She happily let everyone pet her and didn’t mind the other dogs or the one-year-old in attendance. She would sometimes growl at the other dogs if they came too close to her foster mom, but a small correction or redirection would stop her. She doesn’t mind sharing her foster mom with people or kids though!
Clementine is a low energy dog who prefers sleeping on the couch and getting all the belly rubs. She also prefers sleeping in bed with her foster mom, but she will also sleep in her crate without issue. She is crate trained, house trained, and I believe she is potty-pad trained as well. She is currently crated while her foster mom is away at work.
She’s truly an amazing dog considering her first four years of life as a breeding machine. She loves rolling in the grass, following her foster mom everywhere, car rides, boat rides, cuddling on the couch, and getting her belly rubbed. She walks great on a leash and she stays close by when she’s off her leash. She also comes when she’s called. She doesn’t play ball or play with any toys, as they seem to be unfamiliar to her. She’s a great eater and is not picky about her food or treats.
