Welcome Bert to Lucky Dog Rescue!! Bert is an approx 1yr American Bully weighing 42lbs. Bert and his brother Ernie came to Lucky Dog as transfers from Animal Control. They were dumped in the country by their previous owner and picked up by animal control for safety. Bert is a sweet and goofy boy. American Bullies are often called “land hippos” because of their short and wide little bodies. Bert is very muscular and strong. When first arriving at animal control we quickly learned that Bert is not a fan of horses or cats. He did run after both animals and was aggressive with both the horse and the cat. Sadly, the barn cat didn’t make it. In his foster home he does have high prey drive for cats and can quickly overpower small dogs. He no longer has access to any cats and he is watched very carefully when he is around smaller dogs. We suggest that he is placed in a home with larger dogs or no other animals only and will give preference to those homes. Bert is housetrained and kennel trained. He is not a barker. He does have a hard time breathing when it’s very hot and will need an area with a fan if he is kenneled. He and Bert do well in a 5x5 kennel at their foster home. Bert is the boss over Ernie and while they get along well I do suggest they be placed in separate homes so they can both have the attention they deserve. American Bullies can require extra medical care and health care as they go through life and age. Skin and breathing issues are always concerns for bully breeds. We will give preference to those witch experience with the breed. Bert’s $625 adoption fee includes all vaccinations (rabies, 4dx, bordetella), 4dx test for heartworm and the 3 tick borne illnesses, flea/tick prevention, neuter, microchip with lifetime registration to the rescue, full health exam (soft palate and nares included), health certificate, collar, harness, leash, 6 months of heartworm prevention, and premium dog food. All adoptions include a two week trial in which the dog can be returned for a full refund. To apply for Bert, Ernie or one of our other animals please visit www.luckydoggyrescue.org.
