PUFTALOON – adopted

Macedon Ranges, VIC
Aussie Bulldog • 11 months • Female

Puftaloon! Since the day this little chonky girl arrived into care at Life of Pikelet rescue people from around the world have admired her model good looks and baby blue eyes.

But looks are not everything, Puftaloon’s personality is the real winner when it comes to this babelious breadroll of sweetness.
Independent yet very very doggo and people friendly, SUPER social, sweet natured and loves her cuddles, sofa snuggles, loves to roll and play bitey face with the best of them. Loves her food, crate trained and is extremely agile and quite the parkour expert for a Aussie Bulldog or any bulldog for that matter.
Puffy P doesn’t really bark but she can hold the most hilarious conversations and throw the best vocal tantrums you’ve ever heard. Pure entertainment and sure to be a social media viral hit!
So why is she in rescue you ask? Well, Puftaloon has spina bifida. This means that she is perfectly imperfect and completely unable to control when she toilets. With her current premium high quality balanced raw, her poops and wees are regular and a non-issue to a savvy adopter who has no problem helping the process along.
Even though this baby has the most delicious name “Puftaloon” sadly she really only knows her affectionately given nick name of “puppy Poop-Pants” or “Poopy”. But don’t get it twisted, she was bestowed these names out of pure love and the fact that she comes with the most fassshunable “poop pants” any girl could hope for (thanks to the wonderful Dundies).
Puftaloon requires a quick morning bath for her rear end, of which she is hella patient for and quite enjoys. Even though you would think a fancy girl like this would be a high maintenance doggo, she just really isn’t. She’s chill and relaxed and just wants to be loved and give love back in return.


BEFORE  you read Puftaloon’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. Puftaloon 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 she is going to be set up for success in her new home.



Deal breakers:

– Puftaloon’s new family must be committed to ongoing training to ensure she grows to be the best doggo she can be.

– Caring for Puftaloon’s incontinence will be a lifelong task for her new family, washable nappies and daily baths.

– Daily walks and outings are a must, a girl must keep up with the neighbourhood news.

– A specific balanced, healthy diet is very important for Puftaloon to ensure her digestive health.

– Puftaloon must be truly part of the family and that means access inside as she pleases.

– The lucky adoptive family of Puftaloon will need to be ready to keep in regular touch with her foster mama at Life of Pikelet throughout the duration of her life.

Non deal breakers:

– Puftaloon has grown up with many foster siblings and is used to their constant companionship so a home with a friend or 2 is preferred.




– Puftaloon has a spinal abnormality called Spina Bifida which is why she can’t regulate her bladder and bowel on her own. Puftaloon will need a forever family that understands and is capable of changing doggo nappies and happy to give her a regular daily bath. Like many bulldogs, skin issues and allergies have been a minor issue for Puftaloon. However she is now on a great balanced diet that keeps this at bay. After an adoption trial and the change over from her balanced raw diet mixed with a high quality kibble was changed to just kibble, Puftaloon had quite the runny bottom. When this happens with spina bifida pups it can usually cause the anus to prolapse. This is exactly what has happened now with Puftaloon. It’s very possible that she may need surgery for her prolapsed anus, as soon as she comes back into our care we will have her assessed with our vets for possible surgery.

**Located in foster care in NSW, Puftaloon is available for interstate adoption however this comes with the firm understanding that if an interstate candidate is successful, her new family will need to accomodate interstate transportation for Puftaloon at their own expense. 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.
