Hi there! My name is St. Michael (Mikey for short). I am a sweet guy who really prefers the ladies. I’m happy to lay on the couch and watch TV with you, but boy do I love my tennis ball! I will fetch for as long as you’re willing to throw and you should see me jump when it bounces! I’m really good at bringing it back to you so you can throw it again. That really is the best! I know my manners and I’ve already mastered “sit”, “down”, “heel”, "back", “leave it”, “on your bed”, and “kennel”. I’m still working on “place”. I bet I could learn even more if you helped me. I don’t mind being in my kennel. It is comfy and safe in there. I’d be OK to stay in there when you have to go out without me, but I can also behave on my own in the house once I’m settled in. Sometimes I do like to take a few things out of the bathroom trash to let you know I missed you, but I don’t chew anything around the house. I like riding in the car and jump right in when you tell me "up". I really don’t mind walking on a leash and I’m really good at it. If I start to pull just remind me and I’ll stop or heel. I’m OK wearing my sweater when it is really cold outside, but I would rather go without it.
My foster mom says I’m completely housebroken and great at holding it until we can get outside. I have yet to have an accident in the house. I’m a great napper, but I do snore some. I guess that’s pretty normal for a bulldog like me.
Did I say I prefer the ladies? I’m pretty uncomfortable around men. I would really love to find a home with just women and older children. I like to have my humans all to myself, so I need a home without any other animals. I do not like to fight for attention and I am a better lover than a fighter so it would be best if I was the one and only pet!
In the meantime if you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
