Meet Wonka - Go Getter

Wonka is a young male American Bulldog who is described as a 'Go-Getter'. Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. My “Let’s GO!” lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. I’ve got tons of energy; and just like the sun, I’m burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I’ll run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day. (Externally motivated)

If you cannot currently adopt, donations are ALWAYS welcome! Visit our paypal account on our home page at www.pawsandmore.petfinder.com or mail to PAWS and More, 1004 1/2 West Madison, Washington, IA 52353.

We recommend crate training until you’re confident that your dog is used to his/her new home: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtual-pet-behaviorist/dog-behavior/weekend-crate-training

All our dogs have been spayed or neutered or arrangements will be made if currently too young. They will be treated for fleas, bathed, vaccinated against distemper/parvo, treated against general parasites, and if of age, tested for heart worms and vaccinated against rabies. If underage for these things at the time of adoption, they are to be done at the adopter’s cost when the dog becomes of age. They will be microchipped at the time of adoption.

Each dog adopted from PAWS and More also comes with a free consult session with Carmen, our Professional Dog Trainer.
For more information, please contact the shelter at 319-653-6713.
