Bruce is a 1.5-year-old male French Bulldog that was surrendered in February. He arrived in need of the removal of two incisors and surgery to open up his nares. Bruce had his surgery on May 4th. He is currently in foster care with 2 other dogs. Bruce gets along amazingly with other dogs and is very appropriate and does get a bit scared of non-social dogs. He will be best in a home with another very social well-mannered well-trained dog that likes to play and cuddle. Bruce requires some home structure to make him feel safe and loved. He truly loves his humans and just wants to be snuggling his human on the couch or out walking and exploring. Bruce has some minor separation anxiety that we have worked very hard to minimize but he will whine a bit when left alone for the 1st couple of weeks when transiting into a new routine. However, he has been amazing in his foster home and no longer whines when his foster mama leaves for work. Bruce showed signs of resource guard high-value bones or a bully stick when he arrived but happily trades now for a treat. Otherwise, Bruce doesn’t resource guard food, toys, people or space. Bruce is crate trained but rather be free-roaming but we have used the crate to help him feel safe and give him structure when his human needs to go out as he arrived with separation anxiety. Bruce is on medication in the morning to help with separation anxiety for when his foster mom leaves for work and it has truly helped keep him happy along with some interactive toys & a safe exercise pen & kennel space to wait for her return. We have been weaning Bruce off this medication since coming into care as his separation anxiety is getting tremendously better with training, time and patience. Bruce does jump when greeting new people and this is something we are continuing to work on. Bruce loves loves loves water, he doesn’t swim yet but he loves zooming in and out of the doggie pool daily, chasing the sprinkler and he will even jump in the shower with you to play with the water. Bruce will jump right into a bathtub for a bath and loves to be towel dried. We have also had Bruce on some long car rides and he is a great car ride buddy. We have tested Bruce with cats and he doesn’t mean any harm to cats but he wants them to be his friend which not all cats appreciated being muzzle booped by a bulldog. Small animals like rabbits, chickens, and rodents Bruce will redirect from but needs to be on leash around.
