    Most dogs learn how to play with toys when they are young. If Tyson never had the opportunity to play..it just may not interest him. You interest him. You are his toy that he loves to interact with.

    PS....Don't let his looks fool you. Bulldogs are known for using their wrinkles to get what they want.

    I'm looking at it a different way. It might be a good thing that Tyson is low key as soon you will have your hands full with a new baby. My Mr. Wilson is very low key and has been since he was a pup. I too wish I could find ways to entertain him but he's just not built that way. His deer antler and his daily walks seem to be enough for him. I have to add smoochies, huggies and rubbies. Now just because he doesn't show enthusiasm on the surface I definitely KNOW he's taking it all in. Every morning when I come downstairs he does a little pony hop and kick that tells me he is happy to see me, and then not much else for the rest of the day. Good enough for me!!!

    Mr. Droopy-face Love him!

    Sounds like you are doing everything right. He's probably not used to having 2/3 walks per day, in his previous life, together with age this is probably why he sleeps more. Plus you'll notice it more with having younger dogs in the past.I've had a rescue dog for 4 months now, it's only been this last month or so that he's really come out of his shell.He didn't know how to play with toys either, I encouraged him with tug of war toys with my other dog. He's still not as playful with toys, like my other dog, it's just the way they are brought up.

    Good Golly Ms Molly.. I saw 2 pages of replies and asked myself how did I miss this thread and i just realized you wrote it only last nite...

    Sure goes to show you there are many here that care for everyone's concern so I would like to give Kudos to that..!

    @dozersmama Someone else mentioned the Sad expression our bullies give us and it does play with our hearts. It may make us feel that we are not being good doggy parents and so are inadequate.
    My Jack is 10 months old now and his wrinkles are growing and now he looks sadder than ever.!
    I just tell him, "Stop looking at me like that!"......

    Now, Im surprised others haven't commented on this but aside from our bully's sad faces,
    you ARE going thru hormonal changes and mood swings (you're expecting right ?)
    so all these feelings are expected...

    Now again, Stop your Whining and go fix Tyson's supper.!









    PS: what the hell are KUDOS ?

    My babies are 14months and 5 montghs old and they are LAZY sleep most of the day They do have several times a day of hard playing though too and they absolutely love playing especially outside if my kids are out, Zoey(14months) BEGS to go out when her "boys" are outside. But by far my fav times with them are right away in the morning after the kids go to school and I have 85 pounds of bully love snoring away on the couch by me and whenever I come back home even if iy has been 10 mins they are so happy to see me jumpong up at me and giving kisses!!
    Just give Tyson time to open up it took Zoey awhile to get used to us brining Louie home and she was very mad at me for a few weeks until she finally opened up to him and would be nice to me again...

    Nitschke was 7 and for the most part he was the same, very, very happy to just be with you and get some lovin'. He played when he wanted to, but did not have to.

    We adopted our OEB at 6.5 years old and she was so chill...which was perfect because we had a 14 month old daughter at the time.She was the master at looking miserable but she was so loved and cared for. She was cozy, well-fd, cuddled, and loved. If you are having a new baby you will cherish having such a wonderful sweet dog. It makes life easier and allows you to give more love to both human baby and dog.
