13 Jul Lulu
Hello, my name is Lulu! I’m a 6-year-old female English Bulldog and said to be 78 lbs of sweet love. My foster mom calls me Big Lu while scratching my belly or one of my many chins.
My sad story started back when my original family decided I could no longer live in the house with them. I was forced to live outside and my care was poor. A nice lady removed me in an effort to give me a better home, but it turns out that I was aggressive with her dogs. This led me to the IBR which has committed to find a family that would love me forever.
So, here I am at my foster mom’s, where I’m getting my medical issues all fixed up, and I will be spayed after I’m feeling better. The doctor believes there will be no long term issues, despite my rough past.
Foster mom says I’m lazy, but really I’m saving all my energy for when I get to play ball with her. She throws the ball for me outside, but I have to pace myself because I overheat pretty easily. If it’s too hot outside, I get to play ball inside. She says I’m a princess because I prefer to play in a 68-degree temperature controlled house!
I’ve got really good manners, if I do say so myself. I prefer to sleep on my soft dog bed, as I currently have pressure sores from sleeping outside for so long. I never try to get on the furniture or beds. I don’t know how I would feel about being put in a crate. I have free roam of the house at all times and I’ve never had a single accident. My foster mom says I’m completely potty trained and can hold it all day long, because I’m the bestest girl in all the land. I have a kitty foster sibling that I live with and I really like her. She really likes me too, except when I try to eat her food.
After I get to feeling better, mom says I’m going to meet my extended dog family. She says we will take our time, make proper introductions, and see how I feel about them. I have neighbor dogs that live in the yards next to mine and I don’t even pay any attention to them. They bark, run the fence line, and are totally obnoxious. Nobody’s got time for that!
As I spend more time with IBR, I will update everyone on my progress and let you know when I’m be ready to find my forever home!
