Adoption Fee: $250
Petra is an extremely sweet and funny 41 pound, 1 1/2 year old bulldog mix. She is very loving and affectionate and enjoys being close to her people. Petra is dog and children friendly!
She loves riding in the car and going through the McDonalds drive thru for a treat. She’s very playful and spunky, but will also curl up next to you on the couch. She has a beautiful brindle coat that is SO soft....you’ll want to rub her all the time...and she will sure let you. 😃
She loves everyone she meets and she does well with kids and other dogs at doggie daycare. She plays well with other dogs outside of her home, but would prefer to be an only dog at home...because she wants ALL the attention. She may learn to get along with a fur sibling, but you would need to be prepared to work with her and be patient during this process.
She’s done well with potty training and we’re working on other commands as well as walking on the leash. She’s a young dog and she’s very smart. We think she’ll learn very quickly.
If you have a fenced back yard, you’ll want to keep a close eye on her as she will jump the fence, but with close observation in the beginning, a little training and lots of love, she will probably forget about trying to jump the fence...she’ll just want to be with her family.
She’s not crazy about the kennel and does get upset if kenneling her. However, she really doesn’t need to be kenneled because she does well by herself while you’re gone. This is probably another thing she could learn to be okay with if you’re willing to help her understand that it’s not a bad thing.
As part of Petra's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heart worm medications.
