Location: San Diego, CA
Reason given up for adoption:
Needed expensive surgery
Greater San Diego County ONLY
My name is Tuco! I am lucky to be alive and I know it! You see, I used to like
to scavenger through the trash and stumbled across a corn cob I couldn't resist.
Well I swallowed it whole and it caused a blockage. I got very sick and barely
ate or drank for 10 days! When SDBR got me, they took me to the hospital and
had the good vet perform a life saving surgery, where I lost part of my
intestines. The next day I lifted my head and was so happy to be able to eat.
It's been onward and upward from there! I am a gentle sweetheart! I was underweight
from being so sick, but with love from my Foster Family and a good diet, I am
gaining weight and am a healthy, happy boy at 60lbs. I am great with kids, and
other dogs. I am patient and enjoy playing with my 4 month old bullie foster
brother and 1 year old Boston terrier sister. I am curious about cats, there are
a few around here. One let me check it out and I don't really care anymore. But
the others that won't let me say hi, I like to run after. I just want to
introduce myself!!! I am back to a regular diet of dry food, and seemed to have
learned my lesson about eating things that are bad for me, but you will need to watch me and make sure I can't get at anything I will swallow whole again. I have chronic dry
eye (common in bulldogs) and will need prescription eye drops 2x a day for the remainder of my life. I am a very
sophisticated bulldog and a good listener. I know basic commands, sit, stay, my
name. I don't bark a lot and open up more everyday. I'm not too big of a lover,
but like to know someone is there. I think I might get lonely without another
dog. So maybe a home with kids or other dogs would be best for me. My foster
family fell in love with me very quickly and I'm sure you will too!
Please have an application submitted before inquiring about Tuco. Home checks are required before placement, so we need to limit placement to the Greater San Diego area.
Update: I've been ADOPTED!
