Hi Christie, and welcome to you and Heels. So sad that his owner passed away, and bless you for taking him in. You will get so much in return, unconditional love and loyalty, cuddling, and stubborness, they have so much personality, and he will make you laugh or smile everyday. You will love this site, there is so much information, and many great people to ask questions of. The first thing you want to make sure of is that he's eating a good quality, nutritious food. Which brand of food is he currently eating? You can read the dog food ratings on the Home page, you want to feed a 4 star or better brand of food. A lot of bullies are allergic or sensitive to chicken and also salmon. Many members on here feed their bullies Fromm's Beef Frittata. We feed both our guys the Fromm's Beef, as my female Blossom is allergic to chicken, salmon grains and corn. Fromm's Beef is grain free. Both my guys do really well on this brand, and we feed them 1 cup of kibble in the am, and 1 cup of kibble in the pm. We also give them natural extras such as we add 1 Tbsp of plain unsweetened yogurt on their morning kibble, this is really good for the probiotics, and digestion and boosts the immune system. We also give them salmon oil, which we put in their evening meal, this is good for the Omegas, it's good for their skin, and fur. We also put 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar in their drinking water everyday, there are all of health benefits to ACV, such as its a natural anti inflammatory, it kills the bad bacteria in the body, so boosts the immune system, and it balances the Ph levels of the blood.
