Pearl

Pretty Pearl is looking for a forever home with bully breed and cuddling experience, could it be yours? Pearl has an endearing personality and mannerisms. Sometimes she even groans in response to things! She is all about cuddling and she is a very sweet, loving girl! She makes herself comfortable anywhere but has favorite spots around her foster home. You will always be able to find her because she snores when she sleeps!

When the cicadas made their appearance, Pearl enjoyed these crunchy flying appetizers, but now that they’re gone, she is back to her regular favorite snack of apples. Her foster mom dehydrates them into chips for her to enjoy. She is such a food fanatic that sometimes she drools when waiting to be served a snack!

Pearl enjoys a good game of tug or toss. Her favorite toys are ropes, balls and fire hose material toys, but none of them last very long! She knows the commands sit, lay and come. She walks well on leash, but due to her prey drive, if she sees another animal she is reactive. She is a strong and determined girl; she will need a calm and assertive pack leader to continue her training.

Her foster mom says that one of Pearl’s best qualities is that she is so great around the house; she does not get into things and is very well behaved. Pearl is house trained and crate trained. She has a crate with an open door so she can go in and out as she wants and does well with that. She would do well as any only dog. Pearl is animal selective; meet and greets would be important if other dogs are in a prospective home. She is not recommended in home with cats. She not recommended to be in a home with small children, elderly, or unsteady people due to her strength. She has a 13 year old human foster sibling she does well with, so she could be adopted by a family that includes older, dog savvy children. Pearl’s ideal adoptive family will be active, attentive to their surroundings, have bully breed experience, be ready to cuddle lots, and have a yard with a tall and sturdy fence, which is important because of her prey drive. She tends to get hot quickly, so her adoptive family should plan to walk her early in the morning or late in the evening in hot weather.

When Pearl arrived in her foster home she had some paw pad problems which have since improved. Her foster mom gives her “spa treatments” with coconut oil overnight, which is recommended to be continued. If Pearl sounds like the right match for your family, apply to adopt her today!
