Potter is a special needs pup with hydrocephalus; he needs a family that will keep his head safe and be ok with his developmental delays.
What is your name?
My name is Potter, Hydrocephalus Super Hero
Are you a girl or a boy?
I’m a little boy.
How old are you?
5 months old.
What breed are you?
I’m a French Bulldog.
How much do you weigh?
Right now, 12lbs and growing!
What do you look like?
I am a cute little guy! I’m white and brindle piebald, whatever piebald means. I have a little arrow marking on my forehead and white frosting on my ears.
What do you like to eat?
I eat my puppy kibble and a few dog-friendly treats here and there. I’m still developing my palate for snacks!
What kind of personality do you have?
Well, I’m not sure if you know, but I’m kinda a big deal and a bit of a drama King! And all the things that make me different are the same things that make me special. I’m sweet and spunky cause I am full of puppy-power! Playing and living in the moment are my style. I am playful and love to wrestle and chew on my foster brother Tater. I’ve been told I can be kinda demanding; sometimes, I am vocal to let you know I want attention, food, or need to go potty. Sometimes, I howl when I’m in my carrier or crate because I want out! But I settle down easily.
Describe your perfect day:
My perfect day starts with a “good morning, Potter” and scratchies from my foster mother. Then I do a big stretch, go potty, and get ready for breakfast. Sometimes, I go back to sleep for a bit afterward. Then, I like to come out to play, explore, and find something to chew on like my Benebone. I eat lunch and nap. Afterward, I spend time wrestling with my foster brother, playing tug-o-war, maybe another nap, and some more exploring. I like to lounge on the big dog bed and bark orders for my foster mom and foster brother. I eat dinner about 6-7pm, take my medication, and start my bedtime routine of tugowar, chewing, and then snuggles and sleep.
What is your favorite toy?
Anything to tugowar and my Benebones. I’m still teething so anything to chew on, even fingers and toes, if you let me. My foster mom says I am a baby shark. Sounds cool to me!
Do you know any tricks?
I hear “no” a lot (I kinda know what that means), I know my name and come when being called. I’m not sure about learning more.
What scares you?
Sometimes loud noises and sudden overhead movement. I’m little so people standing over me make me cower or try to get away. Occasionally, I get scared in the middle of the night and scream, but usually I am okay after I potty and get some reassurance.
Have you been around children? Do you like them?
Yes, but because I can’t play rough and need to be safe guarded, it’s best if I am around older kids that understand.
Do you like cats?
I don’t think I’ve met a cat, so I am not sure.
How do you feel about other dogs?
I LOVE other dogs. They are fun, but being around gentle dogs that are not too big, who won’t knock me over, or squish me, is safer.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hanging out with my person or forever-family doing whatever they’re doing. I’m easy going.
How is your health?
I was born with Hydrocephalous. I have no idea what that is, but like I said, I’m a superhero with puppy power and I’m gonna live every day to the fullest. Hydro makes me wobble around, unsteady on my feet, and fall over, but it doesn’t slow me down or stop me from having fun! Humans must be careful with me and ensure my head is protected as much as possible. Other than that, I’m great! Did I mention I am kinda a big deal?
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion?
I live with my foster mom and my foster brother. I love them both! I really like my foster brother because he lets me chew on him.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone?
I stay in my crate. It is safe and cozy in there. If it is going to be a short stay alone, sometimes, I get to stay in my pen and lounge on my bed.
Where do you sleep?
I sleep in my crate or on my comfy bed in my very own penned area – you know, superhero style. Sometimes, I fall asleep with my foster mom and magically wake up in my bed. I think it must be one of my superpowers.
Do you like walking on a leash?
I don’t know what that is, but I won’t be going on any walks on the hard pavement. I’ll probably be more of an explore and stumble around on the soft grass kind of guy…. In case I fall over.
Do you have any "not-so-great" habits that we should know about? For instance, do you bark or dig in the yard?
Um, I like to bark demands and do mischievous puppy stuff, like tear up my potty pads when bored… I don’t think that is soo bad.
Are you house trained? (Meaning do you go potty outside)
No, I go potty on potty pads and sometimes I just go wherever I happen to be. I might be able to be potty-trained, but you’ll have to be very patient with me.
Do you like water?
Only to drink and for bathing.
What do you love about your foster family?
I love that they protect me, are patient and kind with me, play with me, and love me. I’m living the dream.
What was your life like before being brought into NorCal Bully Breed Rescue?
I was born different, so some nice ladies rescued me and brought me from far away to NorCal. Now, I live in a wonderful foster home and my future is wide open… Did I mention I am kinda a big deal?
