Pablo – Now Adopted!

We have some truly lovely news to share with you – Pablo is home!

Mary and Tony Leavy collected their boy from Glossop yesterday and took him back to his new home in the South East.

Pablo was such a good boy on his journey, and he has taken being in his new home in his stride.

He had a great 1st night and how better to celebrate your 1st day in your new home than with a birthday, yes Pablo turned 3 today so it’s a double celebration.

Mary, Tony, and their daughter Toni, had a birthday cake already for Pablo to celebrate the arrival of their new ‘birthday boy’ and he has been showered with gifts.

We would like to extend our huge gratitude to Scott and Claire Wilmott who have been a fabulous foster home to Pablo for the 2nd time – thank you!!!

So please join us in congratulating Mary, Tony and Toni on their new arrival, we hope you will love him as much as we do. And to Pablo, have a great life sweetheart and we look forward to reading about your adventures in your new home!!

Previous adoption statement below,

Dogs name:



2 years old.

Current location:

Glossop, Derbyshire.



Older dog savvy children 8+.







Pablo is quite the character and loves to be centre of attention.

He has the heart of a lion and is full of love for his humans.

He can be anxious at times but with reassurance and guidance he will soon feel confident and secure.

This playful and cheeky chap will keep you entertained with how he likes to talk back, and play.


Pablo has typical bulldog behaviours i.e., being vocal and mouthing.

He can be reactive towards unfamiliar dogs; this is anxious behaviour from not being socialised properly. This will need to be managed, with the correct support and guidance.


Pablo needs a calm family home with a garden.

With an active family that will include him in all their adventures.

Pablo needs a Bulldog experienced family that are committed to training him, teaching him boundaries helping him reach his full potential.


Pablo loves his walks; he enjoys exploring his environment.

Pablo is reactive towards dogs outside the home, he needs structured walks with continued training to teach him to focus on his humans rather than what is around him.

Toilet trained:

Pablo is very clean and will indicate when he wants to go out.

Can be left:

Pablo can be left for up to 4hours, he is happy to lay in his bed.


Pablo travels well, he will need a seatbelt restraint, or he will try and get into the front of the car. Because of this we will consider applications up to 4 hours away from his current location.

Things to be aware of:

Pablo has allergies so must stay on his current diet of Burns lamb and rice.

Any children in the home must be supervised, as Pablo can be boisterous and has the potential to knock smaller children over.

Children must understand that bulldogs need time to settle in and have space to rest peacefully and uninterrupted.

Pablo needs a bulldog confident owner, who understands his needs and can put in the time and effort this boy needs to reach his incredible potential.

Additional information:

Pablo is an incredible character, a real diamond in the rough. With just a little patience and training he will make the most amazing family pet and keep you entertained daily. He is the biggest sweetheart who adores his humans and will shower them with love and affection.

Pablo’s story below,

Pablo is a 1-year-old male who is chemically castrated.

We were alerted to a Facebook post where Pablo was being rehomed.  

His owner was in poor health needing multiple operations,  so for this reason  she felt it was in his best interests to re-home him.

She didn’t want him to fall into the wrong hands so asked us to take him. He’s a strong boy and she felt we would be best to find him his forever family.

Pablo has some dry skin patches, and his folds are a little red. He will have a full check-up at our vets.

A massive thank you to Claire for meeting Pablo’s owner and keeping her in foster in the North West.

When he is ready for his forever home her adoption Poster will be shared, so please keep your eyes peeled for more Pablo updates on our rescue group.

Welcome to your GBSR Family Pablo! We cannot wait to share the next chapter of your life with you
