    Sumo looks like a bruiser...great name! Read as much as you can about the breed. They require some special attention. Get yourself some baby wipes (without alcohol!!!) because you are going to need them. Bullies have sensitive skin underneath their ropes (the wrinkle above the nose) and you need to get in there every day, otherwise skin problems can easily develop. Wipe all wrinkles and then dry them. I just use a paper towel to dry.

    There is much more you will learn, but that is one important one that doesn't apply to other dogs.

    Oh, and try not to leave him alone too much...they are born to hang with their peeps!

    He is so cute!! Anything in particular that you wanted to know? My advice is to not take their unconditional love for granted and always give a butt rub before bed haha.

    @ollieivy... thanks alot. i will def love him to death. he is a very funny dog and i am gonna try to spend as much time with him as i can.

    @Poppy.... Well i know people say there are like a 3yr old kid but my concern is him being able to adapt to his new home. He is 4 yrs old and very active.

    I just adopted my Gio 2months ago, he will be 2 in April and mine is very active too! He adapted very quickly to us and our lifestyle and it's hard to remember life without him already! A little bit of advise though is food! They are known for allergies and finding a food that works is frusterating, we just found the food that is working for Gio after 2 months! But congrats on adopting, he sure is cute!!

    He is a handsome boy, and he will adjust, just give him time. Main thing just keep his nose rope, tail pocket and ears clean and dry. Plus finding the right food that works for him will be a challenge.

    @Fontanafox gave you some great advice in your other thread. Basically, it's food and cleaning!! If you can do those things you will have a happy bully!!

    Where did you adopt him from???

    You've already had lots of advise all I can add is give him plenty of snuggles, be prepared to share your couch with him and enjoy the loving he will give you.

    @kazzy220.... I found him on a post. A family was moving and their new place would not allow dogs.

    it's weird to say but it looks like this bully shares the same attitude as me. So far we are getting along really great.
