American Bulldog - Rock - Large - Adult - Male - Dog
Rock was adopted in March but was returned in September 2013- His owner really loved Rock but couldn't keep him :( Now Rock is back in the shelter searching for his forever home once again. The good news is we know Rock did SO well in a home environment and should transition very easily back to a home life style. Rock would prefer to live without kids as he is a BIG guy. He seems more comfortable with women but can warm up quickly to men as well. Please come down to meet Rock, no one deserves to live in the shelter once, let alone twice! Rock is a 4-year-old mix who arrived at the Shelter on 12/29/11 due to landlord issues. We've had Rock DNA tested and his results have come back: American bulldog & dachshund mix (with a bit of Afghan & bull terrier).
The best way to describe Rock would be to say, "He thinks he is a small pup (when he really weighs 84 pounds and is 22 inches in shoulder height), and he also thinks you are a small pup as well." He is clueless about his size and strength, but harmless in his play. He will jump on you and give you that look of "Let's play," and doesn't quite understand why you're not romping around with him.
Due to his over-playfulness and strength, we would like to see Rock with a family that can handle him and with no small children (although the family he came from had children as young as 4). He has been attending our training classes on Wednesday nights and has been doing absolutely fabulous!
The Shelter is open 7 days a week from 8 am to 4 pm, and late on Wednesday evenings (due to OPIN's free dog training at 6:30 pm) - no appointment necessary!
OPIN is fundraising for a better-than-ever new City Shelter, matching the City funds. Donations can be made online and marked for the "new shelter". Visit us at www.opinpets.org, or email us at: [email removed].
