Astor

Those soulful eyes! They will melt your heart to pieces. Astor is a Victorian Bulldog with a bulldog ATTITUDE! She is saucy and stubborn and so very sweet and gentle too when you need it most. 
Astor can be worried about new circumstances and environments, she is looking for a person that can be patient and kind with her fears, giving her time to warm up without pushing her too hard. When given time and lots of rewards Astor becomes her true confident and outgoing self. 
 
Astor is fabulous in her crate, nests and cuddles up quietly for a full workday with no issues. She is house trained and does not mess in the house at all. She LOVES food and it is the easiest way to her heart!
 
This girlie does well in a country home setting with minimal vehicle activity as she does lunge at cars. This can be curbed with distance and cookies but is something that will need continued efforts. She does, however, love quiet forest walks and zooming around the yard with her toys. She is playful and full of beans when romping in the yard with her foster family. She is great “helping” with chores and is chill and is able to self amuse as well. She, however, will let you know when she is done her business and ready to come in with a sharp bark.
 
Astor’s forever home will not have other dogs.  She could possibly be fine with a select very easy-going doggy in her life with slow introductions, though she does react to them on a leash and is vocal about it. She would prefer to be the only snuggle bug in your bed.
If you are looking for a loving girl with a big heart, that needs someone to be patient and just love her for the bulldog she is then this is your girl! 
Astor is also looking for a foster home as she is currently in in-home boarding.  To apply to foster Astor: http://sitwithme.ca/foster/application
