12 Oct Dozer
Dozer’s prior owner fell ill and passed away unexpectedly. As a result, Dozer was surrendered to a shelter in Kentucky and was sprung free by the IBR with little information provided.
Dozer is a white and grey, 9-year-old, Olde English Bulldog, but acts much younger based on his energy level. He is currently on medical hold while being treated for a skin infection and ear infections, but is otherwise in great health.
Dozer is truly a fantastic fella. He’s very friendly, loves people, and loves to give kisses with his tail wagging at all times. Dozer recently went to work with his foster father and his tail was wagging so hard and for so long, he was shocked that it did not break off!
He is certainly a morning dog, wakes up ready to play, and after breakfast and if you’re not careful, he will spill your coffee while attempting to get in your lap. He will try to own your lap or somewhere close by and watch TV with you. He will follow you around the house everywhere you go, and you will likely be watched while doing your business in the bathroom, as well!
He loves mealtimes and treats! He really enjoys his snacks, taking long walks, car rides, spending time in the yard (only when he’s not alone), and chasing squirrels (don’t let his age fool you, he’s very fast!). He loves bones, but is not very interested in toys.
Dozer is completely house trained and has never experienced an accident or demonstrated any marking within the house. He has no issue when staying in a room with the door closed, but he does not like crates! However, he has also proven that he does not need one. He is very smart, and even discovered where his food and treats are stored within an hour on the first day of his foster home.
Dozer is a great watch dog. He will sit by the window or patio doors to watch for any activity outside and he will let you know if something is not normal. He knows and listens to basic commands well like sit, come, stop, hold on, and also questions such as “want to go for a walk?”
I do not have any cats, so I do not know if Dozer gets along with cats, but he does chase squirrels and rodents around the yard when the opportunity arises. When walking Dozer (he prefers longer walks) around the block, he barks at other dogs, so we are unsure if he gets along with other dogs at this time. However, he is believed to be fine with children.
He’s got a great personality and doesn’t appear to miss much. Dozer is adoption ready and needs a home full of love and is ready to receive it! Could you be the one?
