Maggie is an amazing, 2.5 year old, purebred American Bulldog (with pedigree). She never has accidents, is crate trained (though she hasn’t needed to be in it for about a year), and will sleep/snuggle on the couch about 22 hours a day if you let her.
She is great with our young kids, does well with dogs she has been properly introduced to, but has aggression towards dogs she doesn’t know (especially small dogs). She can be stand-offish towards ppl she doesn’t know, but warms up quickly and will try to snuggle in their lap. She has never bitten anyone, but has bitten two small dogs (once she jumped a 4’ fence and the other she snapped her collar).
She needs to go to a home with an experienced owner that can make sure she is controlled at all times when she is outside (more than a 4 foot fence).
It breaks our hearts to have to let her go, but she needs a home where she has more space and fewer strange dogs walking around. We refuse to let her go to a shelter but we know she can’t stay here as it won’t end well for her. She deserves a place on the couch next to someone that will love her as much as we do.
She has been muzzle trained, spent weeks at trainers, just installed a 6’ fence, etc. we have young kids and the risk of them leaving a gate or door open means she could be deemed a dangerous dog. We can’t risk that with Maggie.
