Adopt a Bulldog


One day Akina had a family, the next day she did not!  After deciding the family did not have time for her they gave her away.  Akina either got out or her new family let her go and she was picked by a shelter roaming around town.  Akina is microchipped so her original owner was called, but they did not want her back.  So, after her stray hold was up we swooped her up.  I keep seeing in my mind the facebook post “Please don’t get tired of me just because I got old.” Poor Akina, 10 years old, and no home to go to. Much thanks to Darren who drove south in the rain to make sure Akina was rescued today so we did not have to stay at the shelter another day.

5/20/18 Update:  Hey everybody, I have been in my new foster home for about a week.  This place is a hybrid of an all-inclusive resort and a senior center.  I have two fur sisters, a resident queen, and a visiting princess.  The queen is no trouble but the princess and I needed a few days to become simpatico.  Foster dad learned that a puff of compressed air in the face of dueling pups calms the dust ups. Now, everything is copacetic.

I am a cross of Bulldog with a bit of something else (Terrier maybe) because I have a real tail.  Maybe I am one of those so-called “Boutique Bullies.”  No matter, at ten years old, I am spryer than dogs half my age.  I can jump into the car and onto the seat in a single bound.  How many of your senior Bullies can claim such vigor? Maybe I am so energetic because of my hybrid nature.  My face is not as squashed and my joints are supple.  I also have an unusual dining pattern.  I must eat alone in my dining nook because I graze rather than bolt my food at breakfast and the others would try to horn in otherwise.  At dinner though, I finish my entire meal at one sitting.

Foster dad is big on languages so he researched my name.  Akina has many meanings in African and Asian languages.  My personal favorite is Swahili meaning of bond, family bond.  Kinda cool, huh?

Why you should adopt me?  Glad you asked…

·         I am house broken

·         I get along with other dogs

·         I only chew on my food

·         I am a loyal pet who will follow you around

·         I am not trouble except I do not like taking my eye drops.

So what are you waiting for?
