1 year old, 28 lb French Bulldog
Mugsy loves to play with people, other dogs and his toys.

He is a goofy, medium to high energy guy who loves to be around his people, other dogs, and go for walks.

He is housetrained, as long as he is let out often enough. He also rides well in the car.
Mugsy loves to sunbathe, so someone with a backyard or patio would be great.

Loves other dogs. Would do best in a home with another playful dog, but its not necessary if his adopter spends a lot of time with him

*He does have behavior issues, so needs someone not only experienced with Bulldogs, but also with behaviorally challenged dogs. He is in training, and will require continued training and work on the adopter’s end.
Mugsy is VERY in tune with the vibes of a person.

Needs to be in a calm, easy going home. (If people are anxious and highly stressed around him, his behavior reflects that and gets worse. When the household is calm, so is he)

He needs a quieter home, with not too many people coming in and out, and no kids.

Mugsy will bond strongly to one person in the household, and become possessive of that person towards anyone else in the home. We will give you tips to prevent this from happening, and what to do when it does happen, and they should be strictly followed.

Has possession of furniture, so he is not allowed on furniture.

Has leash aggression towards people and other dogs who walk by while hes on leash (good with them off leash)

Mugsy loves sleeping in his crate, but can sometimes have barrier aggression, and lunge when closing his crate door or when you walk by it (again, this really depends on the energy of the person at the time).

He gets very attached to his person and has some separation anxiety

Mugsy also has skin allergies (typical of the breed) which need to be managed.

He is a fun, happy guy 95% of the time. He needs someone who is willing to put in the work with his training, and be patient when his behavior episodes occur.

Loves to cuddle

Because he needs an experienced adopter, we want to be sure whoever applies for him has read this entire bio. Please write “read full bio” in the subject of your email or next to his name in the adoption application. His adoption fee will be higher than our usual adoption fee.
We will be accepting applications and choosing the best suited applicant for him.
