Biography

Hi. My name is kawasaki. I am a 7 year old English bulldog / bull terrier mix. I am spayed. I had a hard life for the first 7 years of my life until I was dumped at the shelter. I wad taught some things in my previous home that have been really hard for me to unlearn in my new home.
I am my happiest when I'm around other dogs and people, I haven't met a dog I do not like, I love to play with tennis balls and I also just love to sleep next to you in bed or on a soft bed or blanket. The one thing that is preventing me from staying in my new home is that I have a thing for cats. Anytime I see one, I lock my eyes onto it and I won't leave it alone, I will take any chance I can to chase the cat, and try and put the cat into its place. My mom has tried everything to get me to just lay down and leave the cat alone but anytime it crosses my path, there is something about it that my brain just will not leave it alone and my new mom is scared that I will end up hurting the cat if the cat tries to defend itself and hurt me first. My previous owners taught me to go after cats, squirrels and any small animal and it's been so difficult for me to stop that behavior. But anything else besides cats.
I am bulletproof, I love every human of any age, my new mom has a little girl who I really do love, and kids makes me really happy. As well as other dogs of any size. Whether it be male or female. I just love to play with other dogs. It's not my fault that I was taught to go after cats. That's what I've known for 7 years of my life. And my new mom is absolutely heart broken that she even has to write this out and try and find me a home where there are no cats. I would love to be in a home with kids, other dogs, any type of home that doesn't have cats. I really am the sweetest, gentlest dog when it comes to anything but cats. I'm a sweetheart who loves to cuddle and just be loved. My new mom does have me on wet food because i sometimes have a hard time breaking down big pieces of hard food for some reason. So she has me on something that's easier to chew but I could be on small bite hard food that isn't such big pieces.
Now coming from me, her new mom, my heart has grown so attached to kawasaki, but it is unfair to both kawasaki and to the cat that I have to take her everywhere I go because I can't trust her to be alone at home with the cat and she is not a fan of a kennel. She is fully potty trained, has ll her shots and is fixed. She really would do best in a home who can give her love, attention and possibly has another dog already and is looking for a friend for that dog. She weighs approximately 55 lbs, is very short stature, and I just want what's best for her and the cat and I do not want to take her back to the shelter! Yes she is 7 years old but when she is around people, kids and other dogs you would swear she acts like she a year old. She is full of tail wags and smiles and is just happy with life. But me constantly having to yell her name and keep her leash on in the house cause if she sees the cat she will go after it and I've tried kenneling, I've tried a muzzle, I've tried everything I can but she still chases the cat every second she can get away with it. It's not necessarily in an aggressive manner either. It's her running up to the cat, pushing the cat around, and when the cat hisses and tries to defend himself, the cat will bat at her with his claws and one of these times when the cat does claw her, I'm scared Kawasaki is gonna get defensive and get aggressive back and it just will all end badly. This is to no fault of her own! I think this was a taught behavior by her previous owners and since she is 7 years old. It's been a taught behavior for a while and it's just been really really stressful trying to break that behavior. So I just am doing what I think is best for her and the cat. I love Kawasaki and want to see her go into the best home. Like I said, she is bombproof when it comes to kids of all ages, adults of all ages, and especially dogs of all sizes, genders and ages. Please please if you have it in your heart to give her a loving home without cats. Please reach out. Thank you for reading this and if you have any other questions please reach out! Thank you.
