PORKPIE – adopted

Life of Pikelet HQ. Sydney, Australia
English Bull Terrier • 8 weeks old • Male

The apple of your eye is sure to be this sweet bully baby Porkpie!
Born on Valentines Day 2018 (14.02.2018). ❤️
A Cupid’s gift of adorabull fur ball love is going to make a wonderful addition to a very lucky family.


Porkpie is a purebred English Bull Terrier puppy. His mama was a miniature bull terrier and papa a standard sized bull terrier. As a result of poor backyard breeding, Porkpie was born with a deformed left ear and not quite a full roman nose. These are purely cosmetic aspects to Porkpies unique aesthetic. Neither comes with health consequences and even though Porkpie is pure white (with exception to his freckled belly and a small tan spot on the back of his neck) he has extremely good hearing… just selective at times.

As far as personally goes, Porkpie is 100% all bull terrier 100% of the time!

Loyal, cuddly, energetic, cheeky, sweet, mischievous, stubborn and at times a bit of a clown but always a #landshark!

Porkpie is crate trained and sleeps soundly in his crate through the night. He is working on toilet training and is about 70% there. His diet consists of high quality premium puppy kibble (Meals for Mutts puppy), chicken necks & feet, Rosehip and premium treats of sardines and chicken jerky (The Doggie Bakery).

Currently little Porkpie is the youngest kid in his foster family. He lives with 6 other dogs of all ages, sizes & breeds and he also has a baby deer foster sister (yes, a fawn). Porkpie has not yet met young children and has not been cat tested.

Before you read Porkpie’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 very sweet, very rare little bully pup. Porkpie 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 during this crucial developmental puppy stage of life.

Life of Pikelet is working closely with NSW Bull Terrier Rescue Inc  with guidance on the adoption and rehoming of Porkpie.

Deal breakers:
– An experienced bully owner or an owner who can demonstrate knowledge, history and background with an advance level of dog training and behavioural understanding and practice. Porkpie is not the appropriate puppy for a first time pup owner (sorry to disappoint).
– A home that is willing to train and encourage Porkpie to live as a mostly indoor dog. He is white with very little pigment, sun damage and cancer is a very real concern for a dog like him. Porkpie will not be rehomed as an outside dog. He will need a home with a fully fenced and secure yard with lots of shade and a doggy door to give him access to the couch.
– Porkpie will need to attend puppy school and continue on with further training into his adult life. He will also need to lead an active life with daily activities such as walks, playdates, beach visits etc.
– The adoptive family will need to stay in regular contact with Life of Pikelet.
Non deal breakers:
– Porkpie would be suited to either live with another (well socialized and mannered) dog or two or he can go to a home as an only dog (as long as he has a busy and active daily lifestyle).
– We always give preference to homes where humans are home more than not, however Porkpie will suit a family who work normal hours (but not long hours) providing that he is walked and exercised so that he doesn’t develop separation anxiety.

– It would be wonderful if Porkpie’s new owners enrolled him in some sort of learning activity like agility, dock diving etc.

Please contact for an adoption application.
Porkpie’s adoption fee is $600.
Adoption fee includes:
– 3 x puppy vaccinations. The remaining 2 at Balmain Vet Hospital
– Desex at 6 months of age also at Balmain Vet Hospital

– A desex contract is part of Porkpie’s adoption binding agreement. This will mean that change of ownership with council will not be complete until proof of desex at 6 months of age is provided.


Porkpie is currently 8 weeks old and has been vet checked regularly.
He is microchipped, wormed, flea & tick treated and had his first puppy vaccination.

Located in foster care in the Inner West of Sydney, Porkpie is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful Porkpie’s new owners will need to come to Sydney to complete adoption paperwork and travel home with him. 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.
