Cadillac was surrendered to SNAFU Rescue via a breeder release. Her breeder wanted her to be placed in a loving pet home and to live the rest of her life as a loved and cherished pet.
Cadillac or Caddy (as she is affectionately referred to) is a laid back, happy, sweet, silly, playful English bulldog who loves nothing more than to be surrounded by her people! Caddy is a big fan of all the finer things life has to offer. She is especially fond of warm comfy beds, humans to snuggle with and unlimited pets. Caddy has a very loving and gentle disposition. When she is romping around with the resident pups, you can find her begging her beloved humans for a snuggle on the couch and some extra pets. Caddy is the perfect balance of playful and chill. She often finds herself longing for evenings on the couch tuning into her favorite Netflix show and cuddling extra with favorite human. Even though she is in her retirement years, Caddy can hang with the wildest of them! She truly is young at heart! Her foster family reports she loves other dogs and is particularly fond of her foster puppy sibling. Cadillac is reported to have zero issues with her furry siblings and welcomes them all with open paws. Sharing is caring should be her tagline as Caddy is happy to share food, treats, attention and pets! Caddy isn’t too sure about toys yet as she really would rather partake in a gentle game of wrestling with her furry friends. She is also a unicorn dog who LOVES bath time! She is thrilled to spend some time in the tub getting washed and dried. Did we mention Caddy loves being pampered?! She truly is a dog who loves life’s little luxuries! We feel Caddy would do best in a home with other balanced dogs. She would thrive in a home where there are other pets to help show her the ropes on how to be a pampered pet and get used to the ways of pet life! Caddy loves all humans (big and small)! Her gentle, loving disposition allows humans of all ages to love on her and we think she would do very well in a home with dog savvy, gentle children of any age who could dote on her every request. It is important to remember that Caddy is going through a big transition and will need a patient, understanding family that will give her the proper time to adjust and acclimate to her new surroundings. Her foster family feels children would help continue to bring her out of her shell!
Cadillac is doing well with potty training and her foster family reports she is 95% housebroken! Caddy will have the occasional accident if left unattended or alone for too long. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with her offering her a consistent schedule. Cadillac is 100% crate trained and seeks her crate out when she is ready to take a snooze or is feeling bashful or needs some alone time (this is her safe place). Her foster family reports that she does well in the crate overnight and when they leave for work. Given that Caddy loves her people, we think she’d be a dog who might enjoy snuggling in the human bed. But if not, she is completely content snoozing away in her kennel as long as she has a comfy bed to sleep in.
Medically, Caddy seems to be in great health. Caddy has been spayed, updated on vaccinations/deworming, is microchipped and has been given a clean bill of health for adoption by our veterinarian.
Cadillac would do best in a home with few stairs and a fenced back yard (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style) due to her need to still work on potty training and her desire to run if off leash. She would do just fine on a first floor apartment with an attached fenced in yard. Her foster family reports that she is able to go up and down a few steps in their home without issue however she is a typical stubborn bulldog, so she might need some encouragement or assistance in the future especially as she ages. Caddy is reported to run if let off leash, so it will be important that Caddy is leashed or fenced in at all times. Caddy loves spending time outside and enjoys running around the backyard! She is still getting the hang of walking on a leash but shows daily improvements. Cadillac is reported to be a little stubborn and unsure of walking on the leash, but with a little time and patience, we are sure she will get the hang of it! When Caddy has exerted all her energy, she is looking for a family to snuggle with and one that has the time to spend with her offering all of her favorite activities. We think she’d love to go to work with her new family as Caddy is a quiet bulldog that enjoys all the time and attention her humans can offer her. If not, that is okay! She will happily nap the day away as long as her family can arrange a midday potty break for her. Cadillac desperately wants a life of pampering and being the center of her family’s world as she enters her retirement years. She is an affectionate, loving bulldog looking for someone to spoil her with all the attention she deserves and to show her true love and companionship. She will return all the love she is offered!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Cadillac, please submit an adoption application for her today!!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
