Hi! My Name Is Joey

We have had to come to the final and painful decision to re-home our 2.5 year old registered Olde English Bulldogge. Joey is an amazing, loving and loyal pet, but she does have some behavioural issues that are beyond the scope of what we are qualified to cope with. She does not get along well with other animals, including our other dog. We are at the point where we feel it is irresponsible to continue to home her as we are not qualified to prevent an incident. She needs a home with an experienced and firm handler (ironic as all of my research before choosing this breed mentioned it was good for first time owners). We believe she required a home where she is the only animal. To date she has been wonderful with children, but given the way she can so quickly switch to aggression, we are unsure. In the home she is very well behaved. She does not bark, loves to perform all of her basic commands, is she is good home alone, she is okay in the crate but does not love it, she does not chew, is non destructive, loves to lounge across our bodies or is content to sit by the warm fire. She likes a good run or walk but is not high energy. On walks she walks well on leash and does not pull, understands how to heel. But if she sees an animal ALL bets are off. Off leash she has ZERO recall, despite efforts since we brought her home. We cannot take her to the dog park and taking her on walks is stressful and dangerous. She is not food motivated. She is very good with people, hyper and a bit jumpy at first but calms down easily. Joey is spayed and microchipped. She is insured with Trupanion and we believe that is transferrable. She has no known health issues, but she does seem to be allergic to chicken. We believe she may have been removed from her mother too young which has caused her fear based aggression. She deserves a loving and stress free home with a bulldog lover that is an experienced dog handler.
