    Welcome Christie and Heelz!

    Great advice so far... I would just like to add that as Heelz is probably on a confusing stage right now and just trying to get a handle on changes, it's not a good idea to change anything else (including his food) until he's settled. Did his previous owner leave you all his stuff and food? If you let us know how much he weighs, his activity level, any health observations, and what food, snacks, activities he's currently on, we can guide you from there.

    Another thing to note is that because of their snub noses, it's a bit of a challenge for them to thermoregulate by panting. So we try to keep the bullys under 75 degrees and above 55 degrees (especially while traveling in the back of the van). Also they need close observation during walks so that they don't overheat. And speaking of walks, a lot of bullys have sensitive foot pads so they can't walk too far on concrete or asphalt.

    I have 2 bullys, a 5 year old 65-pound female and a 2 year old 55-pound male. The 5 year old is super lazy and stays put 22 hours of the day while the 2 year old is a Tasmanian Devil that would catch frisbees all day long if somebody will throw it. They're both on a Prey-Model Raw diet (they eat raw meat with some raw bones and organs including their treats).

    Hope to see pictures soon!

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    good advice!! don't change any food yet,...bullies are creatures of habit. the sooner you get a daily routine with heels the sooner you two will become comfortable and lovey snuggly. do you know the keywords that heels knows for doing his business? things like that will make him feel at home. please make sure to wipe his wrinkles and inside the folds and make sure they are dry afterwards or else they could become yeasty and infected. clean everyday or as needed (usually everyday). bullies can't reach their bum or wee after doing their business so you have to wipe bum and inside tail pocket. bullies will give you all the love back for all your hard work. welcome
