Hi there! My name is Dozer, because I like to bulldoze my way into your arms and make all of your worries go away!

Even though I am one sweet boy, look out! I will always be there to protect and look out for you! For example, whenever I hear the mailman come in the building or hear the little old man who vacuums the common area, I go into protective mode and bark at the door! Never fear, Dozer is here! My foster mom always manages to reassure me and calm me down when everything is actually safe.

I enjoy going on walks, taking naps, treats from Three Dog Bakery, and did I mention that I have a little foster brother? Well, I absolutely love playing with him! My foster brother named Theo. He’s a six-month old American Bulldog and for the most part, we get along great! Even though we’re getting along well, it has taken a little work learning to share. With that being said, my foster mom says that when it comes to living with another dog, I will likely require a slow introduction and some time to get used to things. Sharing is caring, and Theo and I are doing a great job learning that!

Before I came to IBR, I lived on a farm. You should know that because of that, I like to start my day rather early… like 5:30 am early! My foster dad does not mind, as he is now never late for work! My foster mom enjoys that I like to take a nap shortly after I wake up, as it means she can take one too. Another thing you should know about my past is that because my previous owners were farmers and had full time jobs in addition to farming, I was forced to be in my crate for 12 to 14 hours a day. Even though I am six years old, I’m only partially potty trained since my previous owners left me in my crate for most of the day. Don’t be alarmed though. My foster parents are helping me get house trained! I am learning to ring a bell that hangs from the door when I have to go potty and my training for that is going much better than expected! I’m getting better and better each day at ringing the bell and my foster parents could not be happier with me! I am one fast learner!

I still need to go to the veterinarian just to be sure I do not have any unknown issues; however, my foster parents say that I seem rather healthy! Please check back soon for my pupdates!
