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