    So Jax came to us last night and he just made himself right at home! much to my surprise, Brutus loves him and wants to play, frankie on the other hand is not too happy. I swear i would have thought the exact opposite would happen. anyhoo, I have Jax in the kitchen and bru and frankie in the rest of the house, they are separated by a gate for now until they get used to each other. Frankie will bark and go for the gate if Jax barks or jumps on the gate. it was intense last night but this morning, frankie weemed a little more calm. although I was told Jax is not crate trained, I set up a large crate in the kitchen and put the little guy to bed with his bone around 9:30 and I did not hear a peep out of him! I woke him this morning at 7 to feed and let him out before I went to work, he is completely potty trained and while he will sit and do basic commands, we have to work on a few things like jumping. Tonight I think I will leash everyone and try to have a common area meeting. I am nervous because when I did this with bru and frankie it was easier to handle just two dogs. I am nervous to try it with three of them. Any advice is always welcome. Any thoughts on how to do a smooth common area intro???

    Jax is a great looking dog and I hope everything works out for you all and him.

    I don't have any experience with having multiple dogs and Chunky usually ignores other dogs or tries to act submissive and then gets too excited when they get close and he jumps up scaring them off. All little dogs except his Big Chocolate GF "chocolate lab" up the street that he plays with. She is faster than him and also a young dogs so she wears him out.

    I wouldn't mind having another dog but don't feel I have the time to put into one with me just starting back to work and already working 7 days and have no idea when that will end. I think it would be good for him to have a buddy other than me though.

    Holy Moly, he's super handsome, Rosalie, I'd be a foster fail for sure!

    And young...does he have health issues? Thank you for fostering him.

    Praying that all get along well...xoxo to all <3


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Just saw this on facebook, how awesome, and great that you can open your house and foster a beautiful bullie in need, hope all goes well, can't wait to hear about the adventures !!!
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    He does not have any health issues. He was given up by his original family because they live in an attached three family housing unit and each family was told they could have one dog. Two units were occupied and when the third family moved in they complained to the landlord about the dogs, and I guess it wasn't an offical clause in the leash because all dogs had to go. Jax went to LIBR and into foster where he was for 2 days, but the foster family had a 9yr old cranky female bulldog and she wasn't putting up with Jax being a normal puppy so out he had to go and into my house he came!! He is a doll, listens to everything I say, completely potty trained, crate trained, I put him to bed around 9pm and wake him at 7am to potty and eat. He's not really a barker unless he sees frankie and brutus and then he tries to talk to them, which is really cute! He is really a one in a million rescue story, i mean how many times do you get a healthy puppy??

    Aww congratulations on the new addition. I think once Bella is a little older I will look at adopting again. Bullies are the best and it's so hard to not want a houseful of them.

    He sounds wonderful
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    @brutus77 Just "got back" and I know what a wonderful job you did introducing Brutus and Frankie. I,too was surprised to hear that Frankie was the jealous one. Have you tried taking turns,putting one at a time with Jax? I am guessing that you have. I am also thinking that you should keep that boy! He sure sounds like a Keeper!! Just do it! Foster Fail! ha!ha!

    We have decided to keep him. His new name is Jack Daniels OToole! Lol anyway, Frankie and him are fast friends and are completely fine being together. Brutus is giving me a hard time. He is ok with him but once jack starts his puppy antics, Brutus growls and gets mad. I have had them both on leashes so I can correct his growling and the puppies jumping but I think it's going to be very slow. It will happen, I just can't rush it. gary says to just let them be together and let them figure it out but I'm not sure that's a great idea.
