Gracie has done very well whilst living with her young foster family. She is playful and enjoys a bit of rough play, but she loves playing with her toys, her ball being the best.
Gracie enjoys attention and loves fuss and cuddles. She has been described by her foster mum as outgoing and very loving and gentle around children. She happily goes for a walk and will greet other dogs without any problem, and she has a basic knowledge of general commands.
Dogs Name: Gracie
Can live with children: Yes
Can live with dogs: Untested
Can live with cats: No
Current location: Manchester
Things to be Aware of:
Gracie does not like cats and if the children in foster cry she wants to see why.
She has seasonal alopecia which is a common condition caused by hormones. Because of this she has regular baths with medicated shampoo, her foster mum can advise.
The Ideal Family:
Gracie can live with children of any age. She is used to people being around so a home where she is not left for long periods would be ideal for her. Whilst she can be lazy, like any Bulldog, she really likes her walks so daily walks is a must for her and a garden for her to lay in.
Gracie is untested with dogs in the home but is friendly with them on walks so we would be happy for her to be rehomed with a laid-back dog. But she can be possessive over tennis balls so this needs to be taken into consideration if she lives with another dog.
She will be a lovely addition to any family.
She is house trained, and she can be left for up to 4 hours un-crated as she is happy to mooch around while she is alone. Gracie travels well so we will consider a home up to 4 hours from her current location.
If you have any questions, please ask Shel Bel, Gracie’s foster mum
Gracie’s adoption fee is £300 and will need to be paid in full prior to her going home which will also be subject to a home check.
*** As of April 2019, Geordie Bullies Springboard introduced a small charge to apply to adopt a dog from our charity. *** IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY AGAIN FOR 12 MONTHS***
How will it work?
We will be charging £5.00 per year for membership to apply for a bulldog with the charity, this will also cover the cost of a home check if required.
This fee will cover you for one year from the date you apply, you do not pay per application.
For example, you apply for a dog and pay your £5.00 membership, you have a home check and are not successful for that dog, so you apply again for another dog a few months after, you will not pay another £5.00 assuming your situation is the same.
Please note, there is an exception to the above. If you pay your £5.00 and move within the year and require another home check before you have been successful, there will be a further £5.00 charge to cover volunteer expenses of carrying out a new home check.
Your responsibility as an applicant
When you are applying for a dog, you MUST make sure you meet the adoption criteria and you are 100% sure you are ready to open your heart and home to a rescue dog. Please pay attention to the requirements of the dog, in particular, consider the following.
• How far the dog can travel in relation to where you live.
• The suitability of the dog should you wish to add to your pack later. Does the dog you are applying to adopt like other dogs?
• Are there any restrictions with the age of children the dog can be rehomed with? If so, how does this match your family unit?
Prior to completing an application form, you will need to pay the £5.00 fee via PayPal.
Please put the name of the dog and your name as reference. E.g. Joe Bloggs (your name) / Bella (dogs name). Please make a note of your payment reference number. PLEASE also ensure you select friends and family to avoid fees for the charity, the fees are an extra 30p if you wish to pay goods and services so £5.30 instead of £5.00
