Bulldog Spotlight:
Meet Washington 

Washington is 2 years old and a big boy, weighing in at 72 pounds. He also had those nasty stains in his face wrinkles. He had some skin issues and his ears were infected, but Dr. Larsen helped get all those fixed.

You should know: Washington was a momma’s boy. He came into rescue with his mother. He never liked for her to get out of his sight. Unfortunately, soon after joining rescue his mother passed suddenly following complications during surgery. He had a very restless night and had to be sedated.

The next few days he started out a little slow and grumpy, but got better throughout the week. Staff spent a lot of extra time with him and let him play outside.

From Foster Mom: Washington is incredibly docile and calm. He is house trained and well behaved. He gets along well with our children and walks well on the leash. He does, however, have some significant separation anxiety. For those of you who remember Washington’s back story, this comes as no surprise. He is a delightful pup, but he does not like to be in a crate or left alone. This poor guy has never really been alone before, so it’s certainly an adjustment for him. With the help of Heather, Dr. Larsen and Janell, we have made some changes to try and help this poor guy out. He now stays in a small room in our house instead of the crate while we’re at work. He also has some meds to help calm him down so his anxiety is not so bad while we are away. We are slowly seeing some improvements. He enjoys sleeping on his big comfy bed in front of the warm fireplace! How can anyone not love that sweet face?!?
