Ophelia (Fifi) American Bulldog Young Female
***COURTESY LISTING*** They say every rescue dog has a story well Ophelia sure does! Abandoned to die inside a broiling Georgia mobile home, Ophelia broke out a glass window to free herself and her brother Poseidon. Neighbors saw their escape and contacted the local shelter, where they were taken in, covered in lacerations, flea-infested, wormy and mangy. Sadly, they escaped 1 horrific fate only to end up on death row due to their poor physical condition and shelter overcrowding. But a rescuer stepped up at the last moment and now they are safe. Ophelia (Fifi for short) is a smart, active, comical, loving bully-boxer mixture that somehow trusts humans and loves life despite her rough past. We believe her to be about 2 yrs old. She takes correction easily, rides well in the car and is learning leash manners quickly. She likes to chase a ball and explore the yard and enjoys the company of other dogs, especially her brother to whom shes bonded. She also loves to cuddle next to you on the couch and will lay her head in your lap. Fifi was not exposed to much of the outside world but is very alert and curious about the world around her. She is quiet, house-trained (uses a doggy door), crate-trained, spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on shots, weighs 49 pounds. and has golden eyes that peer lovingly into your soul. She would be a good match for a fun, active, kind, patient family or person looking for a smart, loving companion who is also up for car rides, walks and even jogging. Shes bonded with her brother Poseidon and we would love for them to be adopted together but realize this isnt always possible. If not, Fifi would do best with another sweet, playful packmate, would love more socialization and training, and will make a adorable companion as she continues to mature and learn. She loves all people including children and although untested with cats we believe she would do fine if properly introduced. Ophelia is a resilient, loving, amazing soul who has so much love to give! Shes currently fostered in the Jacksonville, FL area (Fernandina Beach). Her adoption payment is $150.
