Description: 
Rocky is a 4-5 year old purebred English Bulldog. He weighs about 55 pounds but needs to gain some weight, maybe as much as 10 pounds. He is low to the ground, but he is a SOLID dog. He is very affectionate and loves to be around all people. He is a fairly low key dog, with a low energy level but he LOVES going on walks. He is very smart and will learn quickly. He was very neglected previously and came to us with a large testicular tumor. The tumor has been removed and the biopsy results are negative. He has one entropian eyelid which may need surgery in the future, but he is doing great with it right now and he just has eyedrops to clear up the infection. He needs a home that will be able to research and handle his potential future medical problems, as the breed is known for many. Since he was just recently neutered, he does mark and we are working on housebreaking. As with many 'wrinkled' breeds, he does get infections in his wrinkles and currently has one infection under his neck. It is being treated and he is doing well. As far as other animals, Rocky currently lives with other animals but he HAS previously fought with some of the other dogs over food and attention, therefore his ideal home would be one with no other dogs. Most of the time he does very well with the other dogs and puppies and he does great with meetings on a leash and in public areas. Please do research about the breed and their common health problems before applying for Rocky. Homes that have dog experience or Bulldog experience will be favored. Adoption fee is $400 and includes neuter, vaccinations, de-worming and flea treatment.
