At the age of 6 months, Shiner is everything a young Bulldog should be: beautiful, sweet and he loves everyone he meets. Shiner is also funny, charming and has a lot of energy all rolled up in his 40 lbs.
Things were great for Shiner until the family had some life changes and moved into an apartment. Shiner made a race track around the sofa and into the kitchen and back again. All day long.
Until the move, Shiner had always had a backyard, where he could chase squirrels and catch balls. But there wasn’t much ball throwing once they moved to the apartment, especially with his dad working nights.
Yesterday was emotional for the family, to say the least. Packing up Shiner’s things was tough. And driving him to the surrender location was hard. The tears flowed like rain. But Shiner’s mom and dad knew he deserved a yard, to chase squirrels and to play ball. After all, Shiner is still a puppy and puppies only want to play. This surrender to rescue was definitely made out of love and the desire to make sure a Bulldog puppy named Shiner ends up in the home of his dreams.
Shiner sat for some Valentine’s Day photos, but he was a lot more interested in chasing the birds he could see out the back door. Stay tuned to learn more about this little nugget.
2/9/20 Update: Yes, I’m a PUPPY! I love everything and everybody. When I was with my parents, we had to move into an apartment and I got really BORED! I liked going out into the yard and there was no yard there. So, I started trying to find things to do all day in a small space. You know what that means: TROUBLE! Again, I’m a puppy. I run, jump, dance and bounce, and then take a 15-minute nap. Then I start snooping into things to find something to play with, take another 15-minute nap and start all over again. So, I came to rescue to find a family that has a yard and time to play with me.
I like other dogs and would love to have a playmate. I have energy because of my age and a friend would be fun. I am the right age to start learning my manners and I do well at doing my business outside. That leash thing kind of confuses me, but I’ll get the hang of it. I’m a smart boy.
I had my picture taken the other day and got to wear a bow tie. I jumped right up on the couch and sat right down. The clicking noise of the camera really interested me. I kept trying to look out the window to see what my friends were doing, but then they broke out the treats. After the pictures, the lady sat on the floor with me and we ate more treats. She said I was a beautiful boy and thanked me for being such a good boy. I licked her arm to say, “You’re welcome,” then it was out to the yard to play with my friends.
I’m young, happy, smart, healthy and looking for a backyard and of course, a family to go with it. If you have kids, that would be great too! We could snoop through things and take 15-minute naps together. I will be happy with any kind of family that will love and play with me.
I’ll be waiting to hear from you. Oh, and send pictures of your backyard…. just kidding!
2/18/20 Update: I just moved into my new foster home, so I am still learning the ropes. I heard my foster dad saying I have LOTS OF ENERGY… LOL. I’m not sure what that means, but I am so excited to be able to run around and smell all the new smells.
I met another foster brother and one of the other resident dogs. I chased one and was scolded because she is a bit smaller than me. Don’t worry, though. I wasn’t going to hurt her. I wouldn’t hurt anyone. I just like to play.
Foster Dad took me for a walk and I did pretty good. Although, I am scared of the cars and loud noises. I’m sure the more I go out and explore the world, the better I will be. I’m still learning.
Foster Mom and Dad are already working on my manners to get me ready for my forever home. Here’s what I will tell you… get your applications in now because a little stud muffin like me won’t be single for long.
