Meet Bea

Bea came to ABR from a horrible hoarding situation in Georgia. She had a few months in a foster in Georgia while she was spayed and going through heartworm treatment. Once she was cleared, she came to Maryland to join American Bulldog Rescue.

Bea LOVES her routine, and by routine, she wants to be walking no later than 15 minutes after breakfast. Bea loves to be with you, ‘helping’ with whatever you are doing. She loves car rides and just sits back and doesn’t ‘back seat drive’ She has a beanbag here and is obsessed with it.

Bea loves her walks and we do at least a mile each morning. She loves to flip on her back and scratch on our walks and is always looking for a new human to meet. We are sure she would get into any car with a stranger. =) She is 130 pounds, and strong, so if she sees a squirrel or rabbit, she will pull. Other than that, we have worked hard on leash training and she’s doing great.

Bea will need a fenced yard. She loves her walks, but also likes to relax in the yard while we are outside. She does chew through harnesses and leashes if she’s left alone, and she will run off if she has the opportunity. She loves to explore and sniff around, so she will follow her nose!

Bea does have a stubborn streak, but with structure and routines, she’s been less stubborn and goes with the flow and is just a happy mastiff.

*Bea does have a history of food (human food and her food) with other animals (cats and dogs), but does not have an issue with humans and food. Since coming to us in Maryland, we have not tested this.

*Bea’s best situation would be the only dog so she can have run of the house, and be your best friend.
