My cousin's brought me her 18 month old french bulldog x staffy x kelpie that she adopted from the pound and has been trying to rehome. She bit off more than she can chew, didn't realise what a handful an almost grown untrained bully could be especially for an inexperienced owner. To avoid taking him back to the pound she's been trying to find him a good home. His name is Loner and he's a very friendly boisterous stray that no one seems to want somewhat because he has no obedience training whatsoever but mostly because he's an ugly pug faced gremlin with creepy eyes, I thought this was really sad because he's just a big happy puppy that needs some help.
This is his second day here yesterday was mostly spent introducing him to the other dogs and letting him settle a bit. Today it was time for a nice long walk and oh my God I'm so sore and tired, who needs a gym when you've got a bulldog. At first it felt like he was trying to rip my arms off, he settled after a bit and I managed to keep him from hauling me around but it'll be a little while before I can get him to fully heel.
When I first told Cas to bring him down it was to try to help find a home for him but after meeting him and seeing how well he gets on with the rest of the pack I'm about 98% sure that he'll be staying here with us, the 2% doubt depends on his ability to get along with the cat and not chase her up trees, I have high hopes for him.
So once again without looking for a new dog one's just kind of turned up needing a home, I guess I have a soft spot for unwanted mutts.
If anyone has any helpful tips on how to train my gremlin I'm open to suggestions.
