Struggling to find a new home
With so much stacked against him already, we knew it was going to be a challenge to find Shane the right home. Despite some of the prejudice Bulldog breeds receive, we also wanted to ensure his new owner would be able to confidently handle his size and ongoing training needs.
“It’s been quite difficult to rehome Shane. He has a lot going against him. People see a very large, strong bully breed. He’s also white, which people don’t tend to like for some reason. I don’t know why because he’s just lovely!” – Emma, Shane’s dog handler
Usually, dogs are rehomed within around 30 days, but Shane spent 90 days with us. We used this time to keep up his regular training and socialisation so that his confidence in himself and his surroundings would be in a good place when he eventually met his new owner.
