Touza is not available - he is checking out his new home
Breed: Large Male American Bulldog x Boxer
Weight: 35 kgs
Touza is our long termer. He hasn't had the breaks. The best way to explain Touza is to say a nice woman who looked after him kennels last year wrote and asked if she could visit as she still thought about him. This is the second time this has happened. He has that effect on anyone who gets to know him.
Some people are frightened initially by that bulldog face – we think it must be a the white look, as a similar dog with a brown/black face everyone automatically thinks is sweet. But it doesn't take long for people to know what a wuss he is.
Touza would probably be best at this stage to be an only dog – he has lived with other dogs before and wants to play with them when he knows them but he can still be too boisterous He has been a little slow at picking up doggy manners but we are confident that deep down he would love the right doggy friend who understands him.
He will benefit from a person with big dog experience who understands that type of dog that comes under high reactivity/selective intelligence. Yes, we all know people like that. He has learnt to react first and think later and this is why he is benefitting from regular training sessions to change that behavior.
Touza is house trained, can be left inside without being destructive, loves television, and yes he snores. And he is SO affectionate.
If you are interested in foster caring Touza but don't want to put the time into doing his training walks, that's fine. We would arrange a separate walker for him. We would be particularly interested in anyone living in the western suburbs close to his current trainer, but not a necessity.
Cross fingers – home coming soon.

Please note: we do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25.
It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. Please go to your local pound, or contact your local group. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia Pounds in the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
