    Default Hello from Mattie and me

    Hi. I've been wanting a dog for years now, and a bulldog has always been on top of my list. After lots of searching around, I found Sadie Lou (now named Mattie) after a lucky search on petfinder. It looks like she's been adopted a few times (by the same shelter), but has been returned at least twice for being too rough.

    I've had her for about 3 weeks and we're doing great. Her shot records show that she is 3 1/2 years old. She's happy, playful, and has adjusted to the new home almost instantly. She does have some bad habits (barking/chasing other dogs, soft biting, etc.) but nothing that can't be corrected over time. She walks great on a leash (until she sees another dog or God forbid a cat), she's crate trained, potty trained, and knows a few basic commands. She loves to lick and will saturate you if you let her.

    She has a few medical issues (which I'll probably post in the health thread a bit later), but the vet and I are working to clear those up. All in all, we couldn't be happier with each other.

    Here are a few pics:

    GOD bless you for adopting her and overlooking her (few) flaws and fixing
    the health issues. I also adopted a 3-5 y/o bully for my 1st bully and he was
    bully perfection. He had several owners before me but as there was nothing
    wrong w/Brutus, it had to be them! So many people get bullies that have no
    idea WHAT time, care & money it takes to keep them healthy & happy.

    Mattie's eyes have that same mischievous look that Brutus had-she's beautiful!

    Welcome to EBN and keep sharing those pics w/us. GOD bless y'all!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
