Frank is need of a new home through no fault of his own. He is a typical young bullie boy, full of energy and excited to meet people. When the assessor's arrived he was excited to see them - he jumped up a bit until told to stop by the owner.  Frank sat well for treats and responded to a stern voice and a playful voice.

Frank was taken for a walk and he pulled at the beginning then settled down and walked with a slack lead.We met a dog out when walking (a staff/whippet off the lead)  - she came bounding over - all over his face sniffing. Frank showed interest and wanted to play – there was no growling or heckles up. His lead was loose and he was watching other dogs play. We walked passed various people he was fine and maintained a waggy tail. He didn’t want to go back home but wanted to go exploring.

Frank lives with 4 children (aged 3, 10, 14 & 18) and usually doesn't take much notice of them as used to their presence.

Frank is crate trained and happy to sit in there with door open or closed. He does chew things if not supervised. He is rarely left by himself as there is always someone at home.

He is unresponsive to the noises such as washing machine and cars moving on the road. 

Frank did bark when was in his own back garden but did stop when asked to. Frank was happy to be touched on his ears, neck, back - he loves a good scratch and is happy to give out kisses for the attention.


Frank is lovely gorgeous boy.  With love, stability, firm direction and routine he will be a great dog. He's also very handsome and will make a very lovely addition to any family.

He likes all dogs, but sometimes just doesn't understand when the other dog has had enough. He has lived with a little boy approx 2 years old who frank has shown no aggression towards just a bit too boisterous at times. 




He hasn't had much training but walks nicely on lead. His toys do not last long as he rips most of them up. He likes men and women. He loves riding in the car /van . He has a loud bark which he knows how to use.

Poppy needs a new home that is able to provide her with some training and also good food/raw that will not aggravate her sensitive skin. She lived with 2 other bullies and also a cat. She is great with children although she is stocky and powerful so might knock toddlers over.

She hasn't had much training and so she pulls really hard on the lead. She loves affection and cuddles. On a walk she met a few other dogs on a short walk and there were no problems at all, she had a quick sniff but was more interested in other people for strokes.

Poppy has had a number of litters and is known to escape through small gaps.

Ronnie
Age : 8 years & 5 months
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes/separate feeding
Good with cats : No
Good with children : Yes 5+
Medical Issues: None
Area : Hertford


Ronnie is need of a new home through no fault of his own. His current owner doesn't have time for him any longer. Ronnie lives indoors with access to the garden.

Ronnie has lived with a staffie and German shepherd as a pup and the only issue was some food aggression and so he will need to be fed separate from any other dogs. He does not like
cats.

Ronnie lives with a 3 year old. He loves children & is always pleased to see them. 

Ronnie can be left for 5 hours at a time, he has chewed the odd trainer, but not damaged any furniture. He is non reactive to noises such as thunder, washing machine etc.  Ronnie does sleep in a crate although the door is never closed - the crate will go with him to any new home.

Ronnie is slightly overweight, he has a couple of balding areas around his tail & back legs, owner reports no skin issues. He is fed on a dry complete food.

Ronnie was very calm when the assessor entered the house and didn't bark. He went to them for affection but in a very calm manner, his current owner did seem very fond of Ronnie who he has had from 8 weeks old

The assessor walked Ronnie for about 25 minutes on the lead - he pulls very strongly and is walked on a harness. Ronnie is incredibly strong and would benefit from a lot of training - his current owner lets him off the lead.  We met one other dog (smaller than Ronnie) that he mounted straight away, he was quite dominant with this dog who showed no aggression towards him. He greeted several children that we met on the walk in a very friendly manner.

If you think Ronnie would make the right addition to your home, then please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form. (*adoption fee of £50.00 for Ronnie will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Hope & Buster 

Hope  (Brindle & white) 
Age : 5 years old
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : No (neither dog)
Vaccinated : No (neither dog)
Good with dogs : Yes (both)
Good with cats : No (both)
Good with children : Not lived with (both)
Medical Issues: None known

Buster (Red & white)
Age : 4 years old
Neutered: No 
Medical Issues: None known


 

Hope & Buster are looking for a new home as their owner is now sadly deceased.

Hope is very friendly and excitable, Buster very friendly, chilled & laid back
There are no children in the current household, although they are very good with the family children  that visit the home on a regular basis.



Neither of the dogs have issues around food, or separation anxiety. They are not left by themselves very often but have been fine on the odd occasion they have been.  Both are playful around the hoover, neither like fireworks. Hope was happy to have a toy taken from her & wagged her tail constantly.

Hope gets excitable when preparing/going for a walk, both very well behaved & walk well on their leads. They both travel well in the car, no harness or crate.

Hope is a happy affectionate dog. When the assessor 1st arrived she was excited, wanted attention and loved being fussed over.  She got very excited when she knew she was going for a walk, spinning & jumping up, once she had her collar & lead on she calmed right down. She walked well, pulling only slightly at the start.  She did not react to busy traffic, walking past people in close proximity, she showed a slight interest in passing dogs with a slight lunge and a single bark, this did not seem aggressive more just a show of excitement and when asked to walk on, she did.  Hope looks for Buster at every opportunity when she is out.

Buster is a happy laid back gentle dog. He didn't show any interest when the assessor arrived and preferred to stay laying in the sun. When he was called over he was gentle,  calm and very relaxed. He enjoyed being fussed and was happy to be touched and stroked. He walks brilliantly on the lead and ambles along. He showed no interest in passing people, did not react to noise , traffic or passing dogs. He keeps his nose to the ground and will eat anything edible he finds, he was happy for me to remove anything from him that he picked up. 

Due to their history we will only re-home them as a pair. 

If you think you have space in your home and heart for this gorgeous ready made bullie family then please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Hope & Buster will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Jess
Age : 4 years old
Spayed: Not at the moment
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats : No /chases
Good with children : Yes 5+
Medical Issues: None/has 3 legs
Area : Liverpool











The lovely Jess is in need of a forever home through no fault of her own. Her current owners work commitments have grown and she needs someone who is around to give the human attention that bullies love to have. 

Jess was beaten by her 1st owner as a puppy and that is when her front leg was damaged and then not treated. Her current owners were the ones who took her on when the 1st owner died and they sough the medical attention she needed, but unfortunately it was not in time to save her leg. Jess copes with 3 legs as well as dog with 4 does - it doesn't bother her in the slightest and she enjoys life just as much.

Jess was well behaved when meeting the assessor for the first time and was happy to sit until all humans had come inside the property. She was very friendly, not overly bouncy and took attention and treats very nicely. She was witnessed playing and having fun in the garden with the neighbours dogs. She loves her toys buy is happy to give them up when asked. Jess is a typical bullie in that she adores human interaction and loves, snuggles and kisses - she will make a fantastic addition to any family. Jess lives with a child of 2.5 years old and is very gentle.

Jess can be left for up to 4 hours, and she likes to 'play' with the hoover. She walks very well on the lead but does try and chase/pays a lot of attention to bikes. She travels well in a car and is happy to sit in the back/settle down.

If you think Jess is the girl for you please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Jess will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page) 




 
Katie-Lou
Age : 16 months old
Spayed: Not yet/in season now
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes
Good with cats : Not known
Good with children : Yes 7+ 
Medical Issues : Occasional Dry Ear 
Area : Lancashire


Katie-Lou is being re homed because of her current owners work commitments meaning she is not getting the attention and exercise she needs.

Katie Lou lives with an English Bull Dog and there are other visiting dogs. When meeting them she just wants to play.Katie Lou is friendly with chicken although not test with cats or any other small furries.

Katie Lou currently lived with a child aged 3 - she quietens her behaviour when around children inside and outside and she is used to visiting children aged 3 upwards. Katie Lou does chew plants in pots and her bedding in her crate. She isn't food possessive.  She can be left for up to 3-4 hours in her crate and will happily settle without any bedding. 

Katie Lou used to try and argue with the hoover, but no longer tries this.


Katie-Lou walks well on the lead once she gets to know you. Current owner usually walks her without a lead and she stays by his side. When the assessor tried to take her for a walk on a collar/lead Katie Lou would not go further than the front gate and tried to back out of her collar. Once the current owner walked with me, she walked well on the lead without pulling. We would suggest that any adopter use a harness so she cannot back out of collar until she is used to her new home and family.

 She travels well in a car - usually sits in the back of Land Rover and sits looking out of the back window. She hasn't been crated or strapped to harness when in the car.

Katie-Lou is very excitable and barks with excitement. She barks at visitors and raises heckles, but it's all noise.   Her coat is in good condition with no sign of any skin problems. She is a good weight and does not appear to have any current health issues apart from getting dirty ears quite quickly and has had drops.from the vets to counter possible infections. 
Katie-Lou is a lovely dog and once settled will make a loyal addition to her new family.
If you think you can offer this lovely young lady her forever home please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form (*adoption fee of £200.00 for Katie Lou will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)
 







Tristan
Age : 6 years old
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes/not socialised very much
Good with cats : Not tested
Good with children : No
Medical Issues : None 
Area : Glasgow










Tristan is a very handsome big boy weighing in over 35kg. He is in need of a new home due to him not adjusting very well to the arrival of a baby.  The assessor was advised that he gets a bit jealous and when the assessor spoke to the baby Tristan did start to show off so that he would get the assessors attention. He will also steal the baby's toys as he regards them as his own. The owners partner is terrified of the dog and Tristan takes full advantage of this and acts up, so he doesn’t actually get near baby, but no malice was shown at all whilst the assessor was present.

Tristan owner said he appeared friendly enough with other dogs, although he is always wary of Tristan getting into trouble and being blamed so he hasn't ever really let him interact with other dogs very much. The current owner thinks that as Tristan is very dominant he would not get on with male dogs but would be fine with a female (this was not tested at the time).  

Tristan has never lived with any other animal and will chase cats if they run.

Tristan is very rarely left alone, and if he is it's for short amounts of time. The owner advised that he has been left for up to 8 hours before with no problem.

Tristan did mouth the assessor whilst there and it took a telling off before he stopped, but he has a very short attention span so it wasn't long before he started again.
 
Tristan does guard his food and is usually left alone to eat his food. Tristan likes the hoover and tries to play with it and gets very excited.

Tristan was observed on a walk and although he pulls if he gets excited he did generally walk with a loose lead beside the owner. A harness and/or a lead and collar are sometimes used. He travels well in the car - is usually allowed to settle in the back without any harness.

The following is the assessors own statement about Tristan:

In all I found Tristan to be a very nice dog and was almost tempted to keep him myself.

The owner is very strict with some things, the entire time I was there he kept telling dog off, to get down, settle etc, I told him to just leave him as he was fine, but you could see he was worried. I personally feel the dog is not overly dominant as the owner advised, but is very intelligent and will take full advantage of someone he considers weak. 

Tristan is also a very large bullie, easily one of the largest I have ever came across. He is also overweight. He is fed dry kibble and canned dog meat, several times a day, and I strongly suspect that contributes to the hyper problem. 

I asked about allergies and skin problems, was told he had them as a youngster but nothing since 2, however I noted a red patch on his stomach, I would say probably a grass allergy, as local parks in the surround areas had all been cut recently.  He also had a small amount of discharge from one eye, nothing bad just needed cleaning off and he had a bald patch near where his tail joins his body.   I pushed and pulled at him quite a bit to see how he reacts, was a bit tender in left ear, and he didn’t want me to poke about in it, but he just pulled away and tried to turn it to play. His teeth are quite yellow, probably due to diet. He let me in his mouth and rub his other ear no problem. 

He was actually just a very exuberant dog (in the usual bullie way), who I would say was overweight, not getting enough exercise. The owner obviously loves Tristan but he was nervous the whole time I was there, even though I told him I would push a few of the dogs boundaries and not to panic or worry if he reacted badly. I have done numerous assessments so am well used to different levels of aggression, and the owners nervousness again seemed to me to clarify that they tiptoed around dog some of the time and were super strict the rest of the time. They have converted a large cupboard to a kennel, and the only dog toys and bed I seen were in the cupboard, so I suspect he spends some time in there, just a baby gate on front, no door or anything. 

Tristan just kept trying to get me to play, and excited very easily. When I was ignoring him he tried reversing on to my knee a few times to sit, but when pushed off was just a jolly excitable chap. His nails are in good short condition so I think he gets exercised on short leash walks, and he needs to be able to let off some steam.

Whilst out walking he walked past other dogs with a cursory glance, but owner crossed road, dog didn’t seem bothered actually, so his socialisation will need a little work I think.

There was no aggression at all. I didn't see any of the usual bully traits while I was there, and the owner said he hasn’t tranced or done bullie runs for a few years, which is quite sad. I feel there is a very nice personality in there just waiting to pop out.  Tristan does food guard, but the owners have contributed to it also by leaving the room. He didn’t growl or anything while I was there, just stiffened a small amount, but I didn’t go whole hog and remove his food bowl as the owner was getting quite stressed, so that will maybe need some work.

In the hands of an experienced bullie owner this dog will thrive. It will for sure, take time and effort to get him used to the rules and he will definitely need a firm hand but with lots of positive reassurance, good food and exercise he will be a thoroughly wonderful companion.

If you have a child free home and experience of handling a bullie boy and would like to show your interest please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form  (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Tristan will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)





**Adoption Pending**

Floyd
Age : 2 years old
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : Yes, next due August
Good with dogs : Yes, careful introduction
Good with cats : Not tested
Good with children : Not lived with/Yes
Medical Issues : None known
Area : Lancashire










Floyd is in need of a new home through no fault of his own. His owners works hours have increased to the point the Floyd is being crated for up to 8 hours a day. 

When meeting other dogs Floyd is very lively and rather over the top, but there is no malice at all its just a case of much over excitement. With regular exercise and stimulation this should calm down. Due to this however any introduction to other dogs should be supervised as they may not appreciate being bounced upon. 

Floyd does get a grass rash, but his owners use Sudocream when it appears and it then gone by the next day.

Floyd hasnt lived with any other animals and he does chase cats.

Children do not live with Floyd permanently but they do visit at weekends (aged 12, 8 & 2) , so he is used to them being around and will sit on command to take a treat from them. We do think however, that he would tend to be cheeky and take food from their hands if he thought he could get away with it. He is bouncy, boisterous and so we would would recommend that he is re-homed with children aged 7 years plus. 

The assessor said that Floyd was happy to be touched on the mouth and ears with no problems, he doesn't appear to have any issues with food or separation and doesn't seem overly talkative.


Floyd is crate trained for his own safety as the current owner feels he would chew anything he could find. Floyd doesn't like Hoover's - he will bark and attack it and he also doesn't like fireworks.

Floyd bounces like Tigger when first out on his harness, he will pull to chase the children or any other dogs but if you have a treat in your hand you can get his attention. He took no notice of walking horses although we have a feeling that if they were to pass running he would consider this a game of chase. Floyd does not have any recall so cant be allowed off the lead, he also can become quite stubborn and will just lay in the grass and won't move until he is ready.

Floyd is a great character, very lively, bouncy, boisterous, will happily work for treats. He does know some commands but this could be worked on althought he seems very quick to learn. Floyd needs space to run to burn off that bullie energy and some attention spent on him - he could potentially make a fantastic family pet if boundaries are given and manners taught.

If you think you can offer Floyd what he needs then please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form  (*adoption fee of £200.00 for Floyd will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)






Bella
Age : 8 months old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No 
Good with children : Yes 10+
Medical Issues : None known
Area : Gillingham






Bella is a sweet little girl. She is small in size due to her mum being a mini bull terrier and her dad being a staffordshire bull terrier. 

Bella hasn't had the best start as her mum (the female bullie) hasn't really accepted her as she has gotten older. 

Bella will try to run away from confrontation. She has previously jumped over a 5ft fence previously (which had some bricks in front it, allowing her to go up and over). 

We have dog tested Bella and she didn't react to the dog introduced to her at first, but after a short amount of time she did then react to him without giving any warning.  This could just be her fear/expectation of another dog being aggressive towards her but we believe this can be worked on however, for now she will need to be re-homed as an only dog.

Bella lives with children, the youngest being 8 years old. She will snatch food from hands so we have recommended that she can live with children who are 10+ years old. 
Bella needs someone who is willing to give her the time and love she deserves, she does like to cuddle up with you and being small she can easily be scooped her up in your arms and plonked on your lap. She also loves playing with her own toys.
 
Bella has not yet had her 1st season and so spaying her will be become part of the agreement with anyone who takes her on. We will check up on this and require confirmation from a vet that it's been done.

If you think you can offer this young lady a home where she will be loved, given guidance for good manners and peace to grow her confidence then please get in touch with Absolute by completing an application form  (*adoption fee of £100.00 for Bella will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Neo
Age : 3 (Dec 2010)
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : See below
Good with cats : No 
Good with children : Yes 10+
Medical Issues : Skin issue
Area : Cambridgeshire





Neo is a beautiful light fawn colour and is 3 years of age. He was well socialised with dogs and older children until an incident occurred with another animal that was off the lead which lead to his owners loosing their confidence in a social situation and they have not walked him since. For those of you who have experience with this breed will understand that Neo getting no exercise is simply causing him to get frustrated and being boisterous through boredom. 

Neo has a friendly nature and didn't showing any signs of worry when the assessor was in the house. 

 
Neo is crate trained and can be left for a couple of hours at a time. He does not chew anything apart from his own toys, he does not appear to react to loud noises or cars but does shows interest in chasing bicycles. He really doesn't like the hoover or going to the vets (past injections have had to be done in the waiting room). 

Neo does pull strongly on the lead when walking. He travels well in the car without a crate (he is happy to settle and snooze). 

Neo is a bright boy and has learnt to open door handles and so his previous owner changed handles to door knobs. 

The following information is from Neo's foster family:

Neo is a smashing bullie boy but he does some things to learn. Neo was not toilet trained when he arrived, but since being with us he has learnt to ask to go outside and on most occasions he gets it right.

Neo has been taken to the vets for a well being check and was found to have a skin condition
and treatment has been started for this. Neo we think had been crated for very long periods, possibly most of his life. His teeth are ground down and some are missing. He has has some scars on his face and legs, and some hair loss due to wearing an electronic collar with (probes) digging into his neck to stop him from barking. The collar has been removed and destroyed and since then he has stopped barking.

Neo is frightened to go very far on walks, it’s as if he has a fear of the outside world. I have tried to introduce Neo to other dogs, but he became so upset at the time that we have left it for now.   I have tried to settle Neo with Tess my bullie but it has not gone very well and so Neo needs to be homed as an only dog.

Neo has been good with children when they have visited. 

Neo does require a lot of time and attention but he is relatively young dog so some of his ways can be worked on if you have the experience.  If I didn't have Tess I would keep Neo.

Absolute are looking for a pet free family with bullie experience. Neo is a bright boy and we are confident that in the right home he could settle down and let his past bad experiences fade into the background with good experiences taking their place. 



If you think you can provide Neo with his forever home please get in touch and complete an application form  (*adoption fee of £175.00 for Neo will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Eric

Age : 6 years old
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : No only dog
Good with cats : Unknown in house /shows interest if they move
Good with children : Yes older
Medical Issues :  Dry Eye
Area : Nottingham









Through no fault of his own Eric is looking for an experienced bullie lover to become his forever human.

Eric is a big softy and very human friendly and loves meeting new people for slobbery kisses and cuddles. He is brilliant in the house and knows the main commands (sit, down, wait etc.) although he is much more obedient when treats are involved! He has never messed in the house and is well behaved in the garden – he loves to sunbathe whenever possible! Eric is super with food and treats and doesn't guard his food. He loves playing with his toys (only Kong Extreme will survive more than 2 seconds!) Tennis balls are also a favourite to play with and then destroy!

He is very clever and so needs a firm hand and constant boundaries; give him an inch and he’ll take a mile!! He can get into swing-top bins and will eat anything that smells remotely like a treat and has had to have surgery to remove a large object from his stomach earlier this year but has recovered very well. Good job he loves the vets!

Eric can happily be left on his own for 6 – 8 hours as he loves nothing more than snoozing!  However he is always happy for you to return home and give him lots of fuss.

Eric loves walking and is currently walked at least twice a day. He can pull initially but responds well to correction and settles down quickly, walking to heel on a loose lead. Eric is good with smaller/non-alpha dogs but can occasionally be a bit confrontational with larger/alpha dogs, however he walks happily with a muzzle if he’s on a walk where there may be a lot of unknown dogs off their lead. Eric has a longer lead too and loves playing, however his recall isn’t great and so he should always stay on a lead for walking.

Eric sleeps in his crate at night and is used to all the usual household and car noises, not being bothered by the hoover, thunder or fireworks. He travels well and loves being in the car. He will bark at a knock at the door but quickly calms on command and once he has been ‘thanked’ for being a good guard dog!

He is a typical bullie and does tail spin sometimes and loves being the centre of attention and generally being a clown! His owners are devastated to have to re-home him as he is such a loveable and well behaved bullie. His previous fosterer's had issues with him with another dog in the house and so Eric must be the only pet at home.

If you think you have space in your pet free home for this gorgeous bullie boy, then  please get in touch by completing an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Eric will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)








 
Jack

Age : 10 years old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No
Good with children : Yes
Medical Issues :  Cyst on ear/Tablets
Area : Preston






Jack is in need of re-homing through no fault of his own - his owner is ill and cannot take care of him any longer. He is at present well loved and cared for and the decision to re-home his has been hard to make.

Jack is good natured, he is a loving and relaxed boy who is probably just not getting quite as much exercise as he should at the moment, but certainly likes cuddles/affection in the way bullies do.

Jack can be left for 4-5 hours with no issues. He is not crate trained but doesn't/hasn't chewed anything indoors -  but does like to find branches/stones to play with/chew when out and about walking. Jack walks well on a lead (never used a harness). He also travels well in the car, although he is used to sitting on front seat as used to go out with owners son for the day in a van

Jack doesn't like fireworks and in the past has been given calming tablets for the week or so around that time of year. 

Unfortunately Jack is not good with any other dogs or cats, however has been fine around children. Grandchilden of the owner and a neighbours 6 year old have visited (never lived with) and all has been fine.

Jack loves finding pebbles and bricks so you would need to be aware of this and make sure he is not left unsupervised in a garden area. You can take items and food away from him with no issues. Jack does not suffer from any separation anxiety and there is no tail spinning issues.




If you think you could give the very gorgeous Jack a pet free, relaxed home then please get in touch by completing an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £50.00 for Jack will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

George

Age : 2 years old (as of Nov 13')
Neutered: Yes
Chipped : No
Vaccinated : Not up to date 
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : Not tested
Good with children : Not tested
Medical Issues : None 
Area : Surrey

We would like to introduce gorgeous George to you. This young man needs a bullie experienced home. George has been assessed in his home environment and out on a walk by a qualified behaviourist. At present George appears to be nervous of strangers and anxious around other dogs.

When the assessor arrived George was unsure and started barking however, this was not addressed by the owner and they instead gave him affection.  The assessor believes his anxiety is being nurtured rather than being stopped but that they could be improved/reversed with time.

George appears to live happily with another bull terrier, but at present its likely we will look for a new home for him as the only dog. However, if the right home, with right experience came up, but they already had a dog we would still consider this providing a very slow introduction can be provided.

George can be destructive when left alone but we feel this is due to being bored and also a dominance issue from him believing that he hasn't given the family permission to leave him.

When out walking George was a bit anxious of the other dogs who accompanied, but he didn't show any aggression (although this was possibly due him also being very wary of the assessor at the other end of the lead). His current owners advised he would usually growl or bark back at other dogs and so we believe his aggression is fear/anxiety based. 

George is not crate trained.  George loves playing fetch and playing tug. He is extremely affectionate and cuddly in the special bullie way and he does know basic commands of sit, wait, paw, down & bed.

If you think you have the experience, time and patience to give this young man the confidence and schooling he needs then please get in touch by completing an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £175.00 for George will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)






Chilli

Age : 4 years
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : No
Good with cats : No/Chases
Good with children: Yes 14+
Medical Issues : None 
Area : Bedfordshire











The lovely Chilli is looking for a bullie experienced family to give her a permanent home.

She does have some issues that will need working on :

Chilli doesn't tend to like larger dogs/females of her own size. She tends to ignore smaller dogs but will pull to get to larger dogs. She has lived with a bullie male with no issues. 

Chilli will bark if left outside, her spinning can be excessive (her tail was partially removed to help reduce this) and she also guards her toys, she gets very excited and will jump all over any visitors. 

She currently sleeps downstairs at night and can be left for a maximum of 4 hours. She doesn't like loud noises; the hoover, strimmer and lawn mower, however is not to reactive to fireworks.

Chilli walks well on harness unless sees a cat or another dog and she is used to being crated when travelling in the car.

She is currently fed on Wainwrights fry food with liquidised vegetables and also fish/sardines once/twice a week. She currently has and hour and half walk a day (is not allowed off the lead).

Chilli will need a home as an only dog, with someone/family who either has experience of working with difficult bullies or someone who can work with a behaviourist to improve on the spinning and possessiveness with food/toys.

If you think you can provide Chilli with all that she needs then please get in touch by completing an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Chilli will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)


    



Orange

Age : 17 months old
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes
Good with dogs : Yes (calm)
Good with cats : No
Good with children : No
Medical Issues : None known
Area : East Sussex

We are pleased to introduce Orange, a beautiful, cuddly bullie girl who is a year and 5 months old and based in Brighton at present.

She's loved other doggies (apart from hyperactive puppies), gets on with any other canines from Chihuahuas to Great Danes.


Nothing can stand between her and her walks, she happily braves the rain, unlike many bullies. She is wonderfully well behaved on and off the lead equally.

She loves her humans passionately and sometimes gets a bit over-excited, and loves nothing more than cuddle up after every walk on the bed. Her other favourite activity is training and she has plenty of party tricks to entertain us and guests alike. She probably gives the most perfect paw for a bull terrier, but can also wave, high five, go around, crawl etc.

Apart from a misbehaving dew claw, she never had any medical problems, but she does eat one of the best dry dog food on the market (Lily's Kitchen) supplemented with her favourites: honey, peanut butter and smoked cheese.


She fetches some balls (selectively sometimes), loves tug-of-war (plays really politely) and loves to chew on antlers. She never had problems with separation anxiety, she can spend up to 6 hours alone crated in the kitchen without making a sound, she just sleeps like a baby.


She's quite cautious and shy with strangers and terrified of children, but these issues can be worked on. Her fear of men has already improved in the last couple of months. Little Orange also has a guarding problem which resulted in her biting both her current owners and due to the their subconscious anxiety around her she needs to find a new home that has experience of being able to deal with this issue and help her improve.


She needs a loving but firm new owner who can make her the happy puppy she is on her best days, but can deal with and put a stop to her rare, occasional aggression as well.



If you feel you have the confidence, experience, patience & knowledge to be able to offer Orange a forever home, please contact a member of the team at Absolute Bull Terriers or complete an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £200.00 for Orange will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)







Rosie

Age : 5 years old
Spayed: Yes
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : Yes (no boosters)
Good with dogs : Some, will be homed as only dog
Good with cats : No
Good with children: Yes 10+
Medical Issues : None known
Area : Oxford



Rosie was picked up as a stray outside Coventry hospital in 2013, and was released to Absolute by the Coventry dog warden. At the time she had recently had pups, had burns on her feet and was very underweight.

Upon further assessment Rosie was found to have a number of blisters on the pads of her feet. She was assessed with other dogs and was found to be fine with both male and females. There were no food aggression issues. She travelled well in a car (although only small journeys were made) - she did guard the car from unknown passing people but was fine with people and other dogs in the car.

Rosie is a small standard and was being fed 4 small meals a day to due to be being underweight. She had some sore spots on her rears legs - nothing to serious as the wounds were closed and healing.

We thought she would prefer a relatively quiet home perhaps with other calmer dogs and older children.

Rosie was then re-homed in 2013/2014 but unfortunately due to a marriage breakdown she has come back into rescue with Absolute as per the adoption agreement.


Rosie is now in foster and we have gained this up to date assessment:

Rosie is lively, and loves to play ball. She can be a bit demanding and vocal when playing or thinks that she should be playing!. She is a very clever girl - she is quite good with obedience, she will sit, wait etc. however the the 'wait quietly' is a work in progress again. Rosie is crate trained.
 
Rosie does get worried if left in the garden alone sometimes - she prefers to be with others and then she is happy to play or just investigate/snuffle about.  Rosie tries to goad the foster parents into playing with her, if they don't play she will take a shoe and use it to knock her ball around. She doesn't chew the shoe but bats the ball around with it.  Rosie seems a little nervous in the car and also at the vets, no aggression just overexcited and stressed but then was fine when she realised she was coming home. 

Rosie needs an active owner to bring out the real Rosie and she does deserve to be an only dog so that she can soak up all the love & attention. She is a little boisterous with the baby (18 months old), nothing nasty just full on with excitement.  She does try to play rough with men - this behaviour is new since coming back to the foster home but as long as she has firm rules and enough stimulation this will be sufficient guidance for her. There is no malice in her but lack of exercise makes her appear full on all the time. 
Due to Rosie going into foster, being adopted, then coming back to foster we will be very careful to ensure she is placed into her forever home...this lady deserves to settle down and be adored by her humans.

If you think you can offer Rosie her last forever home then please get in touch by completing an Absolute application form. (*adoption fee of £150.00 for Rosie will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Cleo

Age : 8 years old
Neutered: No
Chipped : Yes
Vaccinated : No
Good with dogs : Re-home as only dog 
Good with cats : Tends to ignore 
Good with children : No
Medical Issues : None known 
Area : Ipswitch

Cleo is a lovely girl who has a pedigree background - the current owners have all the documents (currently stored in the loft) for her including the microchip details.  Cleo is a healthy girl who has had only one bout of kennel cough approximately 4 years ago with no other health issues since. 

Cleo walks on a half check lead: She pulls excitedly to start with but then usually calms down and walks steadily depending on who and what she meets along the way. She tends to pull away from other dogs and likes to be left alone. If a loose dog approaches threateningly she will pin them down but has never drawn blood. Cleo does get on well with the other family dogs but often walks away preferring her own space. Although Cleo’s recall is generally good she can only be allowed off her leash when there's no one else (including dogs) around- for fear of her reaction without control of a lead. She does require more freedom but this is rarely possible in her current home.


Cleo's current family used to have a cat which Cleo was scared of.  As with dogs she tends to ignore them when out on walks if they are just sitting still but we are not sure of her reaction if a cat came too close or ran by. Cleo's only experience of meeting other small pets was a rabbit owned by a family member – Cleo showed no aggression but licked it!

Cleo does growl every time the children in the home (aged 5 and 2) approach. She is slightly better with the quieter older child, but is very wary of the 2 year old who of course demands attention and can be noisy. We have been assured that Cleo has never nipped either of the children. She acts like a ‘grumpy old lady’ who just wants to be left alone. She was with the family before the children were born and appears to resent their presence and the attention given to them. The assessor diverted the children’s attention for a short while by giving them some paper to draw a picture of Cleo and during this time Cleo enjoyed a neck & ear rub. She allowed the assessor to playfully pull her tail, pick her feet up, nuzzle up to her face and there wasn’t a murmur let alone a growl – she just came back for more until the children returned to which she responded by leaving the room again.

Cleo barked when the assessor arrived and she was obviously wary of a stranger entering the house.  She was restrained at first but soon became friendly once she was spoken to. Upon offering hands for her to sniff she did growl but this was accompanied by a wagging tail. Cleo was then quite happy to stay for a cuddle until the children came in.
 
 
Cleo is not a chewer but does tend to drag her bedding around so she has a single duvet with a duvet cover over it.  Cleo is currently left alone for approximately 6-8 hours and appears to enjoy being on her own but she does seem to miss the family when they go on holiday. Cleo travels well in the car.

Cleo allows adults to take food/a bone away from her but does growl at the children. She does occasionally tail spin and can become obsessed by her ball. She is frightened of fireworks and dislikes the hoover. 

The assessor feels that Cleo is a lovely dog that needs a home with no little children or other dogs. She is not aggressive, however does need some assistance with socialising with other dogs so that her walks/exercise/play time can be enjoyed more without being fearful. She would be very happy to be the sole recipient of love & attention.
 
The current owners are a lovely family and the decision to re-home Cleo has been very difficult, however they want the best for her. If you feel you can offer this lovely lady a home of her own where she can bask in peaceful love and attention then please let us know by completing an application form.  (*adoption fee of £50.00 for Cleo will be payable on completion of the adoption, please see the bottom of the page)

Homed as an only dog 

Good with cats : No

None

Lola is 5 and a half years old and has a truly loving nature, Although she does require a firm hand. Lola we feel would be better suited to children of 10+ years due to her being like a bullie in a china shop at times. She would be best as an only dog as she is very lively. Her previous owner advised that she has never had any health issues.


 
Lola can be left with no problems, she is good on short car journeys. She loves nothing more than to sit and have a cuddle.
