Patches is a 10 year old female American Bulldog who weighs approximately 95 lbs. Her owner recently passed away and we are unable to care for her because she is not suitable for young children. She has had two recent instances where she nipped at children. In both cases the kids were invading her space and there were no real injuries, but because of this Patches cannot be in a home with small children. She has been an only child her entire life so we aren't really sure if she can live with other dogs. When she sees other animals at the vet, she is mostly excited to meet them, but Patches has trouble controlling her excitement at times! She has a very sweet heart and has been a great companion for my Dad over the past five years since my mom passed away. She will bark if someone rings the doorbell, but again within minutes she has generally made a new friend who she is trying to convince to pet her. She mostly enjoys hanging out inside with her owners and will nuzzle up to you to get you pet her. She is house trained, crate trained, and sleeps in her crate at night. Her home had a fenced in yard, but we have taken her on walks since my dad passed. She pulls hard on the leash when she is excited, but she is walkable and probably would enjoy going on more walks. Patches is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. In terms of medical issues, she possibly has arthritis due to her age. She occasionally gets hot spots or rashes on her legs and chest. She had a couple of visible tumors that the vet has looked at and determined to be nothing that needs to be treated at this time. My parents have been Patches owners since she was a puppy. Patches would make a great friend and companion. She would love nothing more than to snuggle up next to you (or possibly on her own chair) and hang out by your side all day long.
