Big boy, big head, big heart! Handsome Sarge is big in all ways! Sarge is a 5 1/2 year old bully breed mix with a heart of gold! Sarge originally came to CCR from a rural animal control facility in southern Illinois where he had been found stray. He was adopted but sadly returned several months later when his adopter found that the highrise-apartment-lifestyle was not what was best for Sarge. It's clear from Sarge's behavior that he is used to be an outside dog - he's independent, smart, confident, and friendly. He acts just like a dog who was used to making his own decisions about how he'd spend his days. Moving into the confines and structure of a super urban downtown lifestyle caused Sarge too much stress - he needs a home with some space to stretch his legs, smell the flowers, and enjoy his time outdoors before coming inside for a good snooze and snuggle sesh! Sarge would do well with a home that has a fenced yard and a family that lives a more suburban or rural lifestyle - Sarge is a country boy at heart! He'll do best as an only dog, but he'll bring so much joy that you won't miss having a second pet! Because Sarge does have a strong personality, he's best suited for homes that have previous dog experience. He's a bit too much dog for first-time pet owners.
