    Default stray bully

    I have recently adopted a 2 yr old stray bully. When she was found she was in terrible shape. Looks like a puppy mill reject. She was unspayed, half of hair gone from here head and neck and worms. The vet has done wonders and finally got to take her home. I currently feed my other dogs diamond natural lamb and rice. I have read a lot that bullys have sensative allergies. I was looking for suggestions on a dry kibble to start her on. Only had her one day and she was playing and starting to act like a bully again. Thanks for the info.

    I started with Bull Buffalo grain free, and had good success with it. However Dukes eye had tears stains that were not doing well. I switched to Fromm's Pork and Peas and he is doing well. They have a good reputation. Good luck.

    Hi @clinton54, and welcome to EBN! Thank you for adopting your Abby. That's just wonderful that you are giving her a loving and healthy home she so deserves. You will have to find the food that works for Abby the best but just from personal experience, I've had my boys on Nature's Variety Instinct and Fromm, both very highly rated foods. Currently I homecook for them b/c one of my boys has issues with tear stains and very bad gas when he's been on kibble. Check out our dog food ratings article.

    Hi, and welcome. To EBN. Thank you so much for saving Abby and giving her a loving home. We also feed our two guys Fromm's Beef Frittata, my female has allergies to chicken, salmon, corn and grains. They both do really well with the Fromm's Beef. You can read the dog food ratings on the home page, you want to choose a 4 Star rated food or better. Good luck, sometimes it can be difficult and frustrating to find a food that they tolerate. It's sometimes just trial and error.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Great to hear on the adoption! My Ace is doing great on Fromms puppy gold (pink bag). I'm in the final week of transition from proplan to Fromms. Coat is silky smooth. I also supplement with 1/2 pump of grizzly salmon oil 1 x per day, as well as 1 wafer of Nuvet plus supplement 1 x per day. No gas, nice coat and minimal shedding and no doggy smell . I brush him daily with a slick brush. Good luck!
