In shelter Dog

Austin, TX, 78702
Pet name:
American Bulldog
From a volunteer: King is one of my favorite dogs to walk. Hes a cute little guy in an old-timey kind of way. He would look right at home with The Little Rascals. Hes a fun, happy, gentle dog that loves people, playing and pets. And hes easy to handle. In my opinion, King is true royalty. In the kennel, he is easy to leash up. Hes pretty easy to get to the play yard and is not dog or barrier reactive. Although he has been getting more energetic as his stay in the shelter lengthens. He urinates as soon as he finds some grass or dirt, so he seems house trained. Once in the play yard, he is happy and playful. Fetch is his favorite. Hes still learning how to drop the ball though, but he is getting better each time we play. Still, sometimes its easier to use a second ball if hes having trouble dropping the first. His mouth is very gentle and it never hurts if he puts his mouth on your hand. During breaks from playing, he likes to be near you. And he takes direction very easily if I want him to cool down in the pool, go up on a platform or leave the yard. He seems smart, perceptive and eager to please. After the play-yard we go for a walk. Its important to walk him because sometimes hes having too much fun playing and wont defecate in the yard. He is mostly a loose leash walker who looks to you for direction. But occasionally hell pull on the leash if he sees a running squirrel. If we take breaks away from the play-yard, he likes to stay close and is very happy to get pets or just chill. Ive heard that he has had some good experiences playing with other dogs in the play yard too. So he might do well in a home with other dogs. But it would probably be a good idea to do a meet and greet to be sure. Overall, hed make a great fit for someone that wanted an easy to handle, gentle, loving and playful dog. I think hed be happiest in a household with some interaction with someone that would like to play some fetch sometimes and maybe even be willing to do some ongoing training with him.
