Meet Dora (Potato)

Dora (also affectionately known as Potato*) is an 11 year old French Bulldog. She is on the curvy side, and is currently on a diet to lose an extra pound or two. She's learning how to live a healthier lifestyle and loves green beans as snacks, and she's eating one well-rounded meal a day. She has sensitive skin, so we recommend feeding wild caught salmon kibble and fresh vegetables.

(*While "Potato" is a newer name to her, she answers to it and doesn't seem to answer to Dora.)

She's lived her whole life as an only pet and while she's been in foster care she's been around several smaller dogs. Because she is very interested in food and snacks, she is fed separately from other pets. Her preference though, would be to have a home that is all hers - no other pets.

She has some balance issues (and a front paw that sometimes drags), so single-level living would be ideal for her. She will climb steps, but because of her balance issues, there is a risk she'll fall, so we recommend supervision. She needs to be carried down stairs if there are more than a few steps.

She is very housetrained and has not had an accident while in foster care. (Her typical bathroom schedule: 730am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm, 11pm) She does not like or require long walks. She will go outside, use the bathroom, then want to return home unless she can find a nice sunny spot to lay out.

She enjoys going places as long as she doesn't have to walk too much, so if you have a pet stroller, she'd love to go with you!

Potato has such a spunky personality and she is vocal when excited! When she's not excited, she's in full-lounge mode and you'll find her nearby on a pet bed or wherever she can find some sun. She loves attention, so if you are looking to cuddle, she's your girl. While in foster, she's met dog-savvy children and people of all ages and she's done very well with them. Prior to coming to the Sanctuary, she lived with a child (age: infant to ten years old).

Her ideal home would offer plenty of sunny spots for her to sunbathe, it would have limited steps, lots of human companionship, and no other pets.
