WELCOME POSIE Please join us in welcoming beautiful Posie to the HBR foster family. Posie is a 6 year old Bulldog who was surrendered to our care when her owner could no longer care for her. THANK YOU Brittany for opening your home to Posie and taking such good care of her! THANK YOU Mark for transporting Posie safely to her foster home. Posie will ONLY be available to those families who are already on our Bulldog wait list.
WELCOME STAN LEE Please join us in welcoming handsome Stan Lee to the HBR foster program this week! Stan Lee is a 18 month old Mastiff mix who is settling in VERY well to his foster home. He has some manners to learn but he is quite eager to please. THANK YOU Miranda and family for opening your home to HBRs big baby. We can already see him thriving with your consistency and patience! THANK YOU Cindy for safely getting Stan Lee into care.
HI There! It’s JOVIE!!!! My name is Jovie and I am a 4 1/2 year old green-eyed American Bulldog/Mastiff mix.My favourite things are walk time, dinner time, and cuddle time. I am a total sweetheart and very affectionate with my foster humans. I love to get silly rolling around on the carpet and stretching out real long.I am super strong and athletic (my foster mom thinks I’d be great at agility), but content with a couple walks per day and a run in the yard. My ears do this adorable thing where they get stuck back when I run, because they are so floppy. I still have some work to do on my leash walking as I can get a little over stimulated when there is lots going on and forget to walk nicely. But my foster mom says I have made good progress and keep getting better as I get more acclimated to the sniffs, sights and sounds around me. I am a quick learner and love training time because I am very food motivated and enjoy any time spent with my humans.While at home I’m pretty easy going, quiet and happy to chill out and nap while my foster parents are working and doing other boring things. I follow my humans around the house and don’t like being left alone, but if you hang out with me for a bit while I chill in my crate I should be ok when you leave the house (though the pandemic has meant that my foster parents are usually around). I am house broken and sleep through the night in my crate without a peep, and though I prefer if the crate is near my humans I can probably learn to sleep on my own with a little patience. I enjoy meeting new people and am good with strangers, but it’s best to take it slow because I can be a little nervous. Spend a few minutes cuddling me or giving me treats and I’ll be your best gal. I do not have very good doggie social skills. I have had success making friends with slow introductions and distanced walks, but I am hyper stimulated when meeting dogs for the first time and don’t know how to play safe. I would do best in an environment without other dogs, or with an owner who is experienced in managing new relationships. I am apparently good with kids, but haven’t met too many.Did I mention how pretty I am? Oh yeah, I get complimented on my looks all the time, no big deal. Just one look into these green eyes and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
