Breed: Australian Bulldog mix Size: Medium Age: 5 and half years
Thank you for considering an ARF dog. Most dogs receive several enquiries, and we aim to match the right dog to the right home so that they can enjoy a happy life together. If your enquiry is unsuccessful, rest assured that the foster carer has carefully based their decision on a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dog’s needs.
Betty is assessed as being in the Bronze category in our Perfect Match system and is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST)
Betty is quite the Diva! A bulldog mix at about 26 kilos who behaves like a “Duracell-bunny-3-year-old toddler” and full of life (and for those who have been around kids, you will know what I mean).
Betty comes in well-trained and loves going to doggie school. She lights up knowing it’s training time and willing to work for food in a heartbeat. She is toilet trained, knows how to sit, drop, wait, stay, and many more tricks.
Betty walks okay on the leash, love to chase the ball or her mommy on the oval. She is comfortable meeting new dogs and or children but sometime she forgets that not everyone plays that same way she does.
Betty has a shorter snout (thanks to her breed) compared to other dogs, which means she is better off with frequent short exercise sessions than a 2-hour hike – definitely not a fan of the hot weather. She also snores, grunts, sneezes, makes funny noises that are hilarious. We were at a friend’s wedding next to the lake not long ago. As the bride and the groom exchanged their vows, Betty made sure that everyone knew her existence.
Betty is a wonderful dog, she does have a couple of naughty habits from her previous life. She loves her food a bit too much and likes to play tug-of-war with almost anything in her mouth. These naughty habits have been corrected during her time in care but the corrections will need to be continued in her new home. Because of this, Betty better suited in a single-dog home without children.
If you want a fur baby instead of a human baby, and is committed to take on continuous doggie training, Betty is your girl! Please contact Vicky to learn more about Betty as the short profile does not sufficiently reflect who she truly is.
