Australians might not know what a PayDay is – a nutty, caramel bar – and our little bulldog boy is exactly like his name sake. A little bit nutty. Very, very sweet.
A little bit nutty? Our boy PayDay is absolutely the class clown. As a puppy he’s still trying to grow into his goofy paws and he has the delicate step of a baby elephant. He is very easily sidetracked by his foster sisters running past with something that looks fun, or by which toy he was playing with.
When getting a bath, PayDay goes for the full body sploot as if trying to blend into the bath and staying very still will ensure the bath will stop happening.
Very, very sweet? If PayDay wants something – he will let you know. He loves to be cuddled and as soon as he’s in his foster Mum’s arms, he turns into another dog entirely. He is very submissive to his older foster sister and he followers her everywhere she goes.
PayDay was born with a spinal abnormality. He is unable to control his bowels or bladder and he has a bit of a head tilt. He has no idea that he has this limitation and – if allowed – he will run and play for as long as he’s allowed. He will need regular baths and nappies to keep him clean and comfortable thoughtout his life.
BEFORE you read PayDay’s adoption criteria it is extremely important that potential adopters give great thought and communicate in their adoption application as to what their home set up and routine plan is for the first few weeks/months if they are the successful adopter of this most precious pupper. PayDay cannot be settled in over just a weekend and then left on a Monday home alone while you return to work… There needs to be a plan outlined so that his foster family can feel assured he is going to be set up for success in his new home.
– PayDay has grown up with many foster siblings and is used to their constant companionship so a home with a friend or 2 is preferred.
– PayDay’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure he grows to be the best doggo he can be.
– Caring for PayDay’s incontinence will be a lifelong task for his new family (think nappies and baths).
– Daily walks and outings are a must, a boyo must keep up with the neighbourhood gossip.
– A specific balanced, healthy diet is very important for PayDay to ensure his digestive health.
– PayDay must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as he pleases.
Non deal breakers:
– A home in Victoria is preferred however interstate applicants will be considered, potential forever families would need to come to HQ for a meet and greet
– PayDay has a spinal abnormality called Spina Bifida which is why he can’t regulate his bladder and bowels on his own, this will mean that his new forever family will need to be on top of nappy changes and a daily bath to keep the little guy happy and clean.

**Located in foster care in Victoria, PayDay is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful, PayDay’s new family will need to come to HQ to complete adoption paperwork and travel home with him. Interstate candidates please see above in deal breakers/non-deal breakers. Video footage of yard & home will also need to be provided along with the agreement to a possible home check by a local Life of Pikelet rescue volunteer.
