Hey! This is Kessel, he is a 4-year-old English bulldog. He loves wiggles, and toys, especially balls! He is a pro at playing fetch.
Kessel is an incredible dog. He can be a very loyal and loving dog but only after he bonds with someone which will take time and patience. Once Kessel bonds, you will have a cuddle bug who will crowd your space, steal your French Fries, and demand ear scratches.
Unfortunately, Kessel had a run in a couple years ago with a delivery driver who kicked him in the head. Since that day Kessel has become a reactive dog, especially towards men. He seems to do better with women and only after they establish a relationship with him but will show fear aggression towards men and is happier and safer if kept away from children.
Kessel has lived with another dog and cat who he loved and had no issues however, he grew up with those other pets. We believe Kessel will react poorly to other animals that he does not know and would much prefer to be the only pet while he learns to trust humans again.
Because of his breed, Kessel will pant heavy, can get overheated quickly, will require his skin folds cleaned regularly and can be either very lazy or crazy energetic. He is good in a crate but does love to hog space on the bed with his people.
Kessel’s skin allergies are best managed with a raw food diet, particularly Lamb formulas and regular washing of his skin folds.
We would love nothing more than to find a home where he feels welcome and loved where he can live out the rest of his days. The ideal home for Kessel is with a single, strong female who could offer him an understanding home with lots of love.
