Senior Spotlight: Atticus!
From Atticus: After wandering the streets, someone was kind enough to take me to a local shelter. I'm so glad they helped me. I was having a hard time because I could barely see and hear. My ears were both swollen and infected, and my eyes were a dry mess with all kinds of green stuff in them. One eye also had a very bad ulcer.
I've run into wire fences because I don’t see them. I've missed a few doorways and ran into walls. I have also had trouble going up or down steps. Maybe that’s why I couldn’t find my way back home? Or maybe that's why someone dumped me? No one knows. With these health issues, I'm kind of glad no one found me in the shelter. Now that I'm in rescue, I can get all the vet care I need.
I also had a few bare spots on my skin and that I needed some dental work. Otherwise, I think I'm in pretty good shape. I may be about 7 years old, but I still love to play with people and can even get a little mouthy.
From Foster Parents: Atticus is such a wonderful bulldog! This big guy loves to play and be part of the family. He tends to play a little rough, so we recommend a family without small kids. He has a tough time with his eyesight, and is on a couple different eye drops. He doesn't really like getting the drops, so that can be a little tricky.
Atticus gets along well with the other dogs in the house, and he does very well in a crate. His house training it also quickly improving, however, the first couple days in our house, he was sure to mark everything as often as possible.
His perfect family will not have any kids in the home, and also have plenty of experience dealing with eye issues. Stay tuned for more updates on this wonderful bulldog that has so much love to give.
