Posted Breed: American Bulldog. Hello, my name is Kinsley. I LOVE food! I was very underweight when I first got here, but the nice people of Animal Ark have spoiled me with lots of food and treats since then. I have a super cute snort when I get excited about things like food or walks or plush toys! I get along great with humans, I am a dog, but if I were human I'd definitely be a people person. I am a super calm and gentle girl. I need a loving and calm home to spoil me rotten with food, treats, and plush toys. I went on a doggy-date and my human friend says: " She is a strong girl, but gets better with leash walking on a harness after a bit. She enjoys relaxing, peace, and quiet. She seems to enjoy car rides and water. Kinsley was calm and definitely loves being petted. This dog is so chill she should come with a sweater! She is nice and chill, beautiful, and sensible." Does she sound like the one for you?Please contact us at animalakrescue@ymail.com, or call 706 569 6040, 11 am - 5pm Mon-Fri and 10am-5pm Saturday.

American Bulldog

Overview: Originally used in the 17th century for bull baiting—a wagering sport in which dogs fought bulls in a ring—Bulldogs had taller, more athletic frames (much like the Olde English Bulldogge). When bull baiting was outlawed in 1835, Bulldogs were bred to be kinder, heavier and more relaxed. However, American Bulldogs—which were brought to the U.S. before this breeding pattern—retained the size and strength of the original Bulldogs. Great family dogs, American Bulldogs are sweet to children. They love family-oriented occasions and want to be involved. With proper training and socialization, you’ll find them outgoing and exceedingly loyal. Some American Bulldogs will go to great lengths to protect their masters. Tough and determined, American Bulldogs have an impressive stamina and strength. They are always game for playtime in the back yard or working in the field.
Breed Group: Non-Sporting
Weight (lbs): male-70-120 female-60-100
Height (in): 19-27
Colors: white, brindle, brown, red or tan
Coat: Short, coarse coat. For such a short haired dog, American Bulldogs shed more than you might think. Their short coarse hairs come off on your hands when you pet them, and stick tenaciously to your clothing, upholstery, and carpeting.
Character: American Bulldogs are friendly, happy lovable dogs with an assertiveness and confidence that never gets out of control. Though initially stubborn in training, they soon respond to their masters’ commands and prove to be endlessly faithful companions.
Temperament: American Bulldogs are loyal and loving animals that prefer to be with people. They do well with children, when socialized from a young age. May not do well with other dogs.
Care: The short coat requires infrequent bathing and brushing.
Training: This breed needs firm, consistent, but not harsh training. They are highly trainable and can be used as agility or search and rescue dogs.
Activity: American Bulldogs MUST have regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things. Otherwise they will become rambunctious and bored -- which they usually express by barking and destructive chewing. Bored American Bulldogs can make a shambles of your house and yard.
Country of Origin: USA
Health Issue: American Bulldogs generally live from 10 to 16 years, and tend to be strong, physically active, and often healthy. Some health problems in American bulldogs are often found within certain genetic lines, and are not common to the entire breed, while others, such as neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL),[1] Ichthyosis, disorders of the kidney and thyroid, ACL tears, hip dysplasia, cherry eye, elbow dysplasia, entropion, ectropion, and bone cancer are more common to the general population of American Bulldogs. There are DNA tests available to help breeders screen breeding animals for NCL (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis)[1] and Ichthyosis. It is highly recommended to spend time to research your breeder information, including your American Bulldog's family history. A Penn Hip (Pennsylvania Hip Improvement project) or OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) screening is recommended for all potential breeding animals. Some breeds of American Bulldog are prone to allergies. Symptoms like a runny nose or a rash are examples of signs of allergies. Some vets recommend dog owners to give 25 mg of Benadryl per day; in most cases it helps.
Life Expectancy: 14-16

More About American Bulldog Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier. Toby: The Dog, The Myth, The Legend. We don't know too much about Toby's past. Rumor has it that he was an extra in "A Dog's Purpose" as a pup. Like most child actors, Toby got caught up in the Hollywood scene. He developed a rawhide addiction and began spending every day at the dog park. That's when Toby decided to head east before tinsel town chewed him up and spit him out. He went down to the train tracks and met a friendly group of hobos that let him share a train car cross-country to Georgia. Toby is tired of the fast life and ready to settle down with a family of his own. Ok, all of that history is a joke...but Toby is seriously a super laid back and nice guy. A perfect day for Toby would be a good walk, followed by lots of pets and cuddles from his humans, and afterward a long nap on a comfy bed. Does Toby sounds like the one for you? Toby recently went on a doggy-date. His human companions for the day say, "Toby has a huge heart and is a very calm car rider. Toby is excited to meet new people. He is a very sweet and loving dog. He also enjoys playing in the water."Please contact us at animalakrescue@ymail.com, or call 706 569 6040, 11 am - 5pm Mon-Fri and 10am-5pm Saturday.
