Macedon Ranges, VIC
British Bulldog • 10 months old • Female

You’ll want Parmy to look at you the way Parmy looks at food – intense, unwavering and with a desire reserved only for those things she perceives can be consumed.

Meet Parmy, our 8-and-a-half-month-old British Bulldog, a shining example of resilience and charm. Hailing from sunny South Australia, Parmy was surrendered because her back legs are a little …… wonky, and she had some trouble going to the toilet. Neither of these things stop her getting what she wants though – no sir! You see, Parmy has two congenital birth abnormalities. One is Spina Bifida, which is essentially a little hole in her spine that didn’t close over when she forming in the womb and effects her ability to be toilet trained. The other condition is called ‘Straight Leg Syndrome’. A rare condition with unknown origins that means her little legs are as straight as can be, moving only very slightly from the hips. Despite these strange looking legs, she runs around in her designer shoes giving everyone a big hello.

Parmy loves to lay in the sun, and if often called back inside when her love of it begins to overwhelm her. Her other loves are games of bitey-face with her foster siblings and indulging in a bit of well-intentioned chewing (both things she should, and the things she shouldn’t). She is a true ray of sunshine, and absolutely loves making new friends and having adventures.

Don’t be dismayed by this pretty girl’s incontinence. Keeping her on a balance, raw diet with a probiotic supplement will make life much easier for her and for you, and once it’s become part of the routine – you won’t notice it, and you’ll be the pround parent of the most hilarious bulldog ever. Previous adopters of our Spina Bifida babes use dog specific nappies inside, while others allow for plenty of outside time.

Parmy has been an inside dog in foster care, and we would need it to stay that way. As a bulldog who loves the sun, she’s likely to overheat if left outside. She may be content as the only dog in the household, the presence of a playful fur sibling can truly help her shine. She’s a big fan of her Whippet and French Bulldog foster brothers. Being a bulldog that can be a little subborn, Parmy would benefit from some training to help her be the best behaved bulldog on the block.

BEFORE you read Parmy’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 girl. Parmy 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 her foster family can feel assured that she is going to be set up for success in her new home.


Deal breakers:

– Parmy has Spina Bifida meaning that she is both urine and fecal incontinent. Potential families will need to demonstrate that they understand what this means and what they will need to do to keep him clean and tidy. We’ll want to see that everyone in the family is on board with having a beautiful Bifida kid in the house.

– Parmy’s foster family are experienced with dogs with Spina Bifida and insist that she continues on a raw diet to keep her digestive system healthy. Any change in diet for these kids can have catastropic consequences, so a commitment to this will be a deciding factor.

– It is not negotiable that Parmy’s new forever family stay in contact with LoP Rescue and her foster family. This little chonk is very special to her foster family and they will hope to stay in his life to support her, and her family and see what she achieves.

Non deal breakers:

– A family or human who is home more than not, especially for the first few weeks of adoption so Parmigana can settle in.

– Ideally Parmigana’s wouldn’t be the only fur child. She would benefit from a bigger sibling who can patiently help her grow into a beautiful bulldog.



– Parmy has a spinal abnormality called Spina Bifida, which is why she can’t regulate her bladder or bowel. Parmy will need a forever family that understands, and it capable of changing doggo nappies (should they choose to use them) and happy to give her a regular bottom bath to keep her fresh and clean.

– Because of her incontinence, Parmy can have problems with urinary tract infections, so keeping her backend clean is really important.

– Parmy’s straight leg syndrome means that she can’t pick her back feet up. She has sores on the bottom of her paws where they get dragged along when she walks. Despite having a very cool set of boots, you will need to keep her feet clean with a water wipe at least once a day to avoid infection.
