Denver is bouncy bulldog puppy with Spina Bifida, which means she was born with a deformity to her spine that has caused her to be incontinent. However, Denver still has full mobility of her legs, so much so that she can pounce and wrestle and annoy all of her fur foster siblings to her heart's content! She's even been able to gallop on the beach and play in the ocean! Denver is currently around 30lbs and seems to have longer legs than a typical stumpy bulldog. She was dumped at 3mo at a big city shelter with no information about her past, so we do not know for sure how big she will get. Denver is also living with kids and is lovely with them, catching on quickly to learning a routine and manners. Because she is incontinent, she will require an adopter who is capable of providing for her medical needs longterm. She will need to be in diapers (which luckily are ridiculously adorable) and require cleaning and grooming to ensure she does not get an infection. Denver adores her humans and has the funniest personality, so diaper time is always full of laughs.
Denver is available for adoption to qualified adopters in the contiguous 48 states. ABR would prefer approved applicants to come to TX to meet their match, with their family and dog(s), but we recognized this isn’t always possible. In such cases, approved adopters should be willing to participate in video interviews with the entire family to meet their match virtually. Adopters must also provide a transportation plan for their new family member that will require approval from the ABR Board. This needs to be paid for by the adopter, in addition to the dog’s adoption fee. Adopters need to also be prepared arrange safe transport back to the Austin area, should adoption not work out. Please be prepared to provide vet and personal references in your application for us to contact when considering your family.
