SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.
Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.
As for Baby Thunder:
Check out his video! https://youtu.be/ztalL-i0K3o
Baby Thunder is an approx. 2 year old, 65 lb adorable ball of mush. He is a sweet, happy, silly boy who loves going for walks, running around the yard, playing with his toys and snuggling. His foster mom describes him as a very affectionate boy who is happiest lying at your feet or resting his big adorable head in your lap as he gazes up with you with his soft, soulful eyes.
Baby Thunder came to us after he was adopting from a shelter and promptly returned. The first day he went to his new family, the children in that family completely overwhelmed him, getting in his face, taking his toys, etc. No surprise, he did not react well and off to the shelter he went.
This is why in our rescue, we do not adopt any dog to anyone with such unrealistic expectations. We ask all adopters to follow the two-week shutdown, as all dogs need time (and space) to adjust to being in a new home. Beyond that, no dog should ever have anyone (even their owner) in their face, taking their toys, food, etc. from them. This is basic common sense when it comes to all dogs.
Because of this, Baby Thunder should not go to a home with kids. He also needs a savvy adopter who will allow him to properly meet new people, especially in his home.
Baby Thunder is an amazing dog who will make some lucky adopter very happy. Baby Thunder is well behaved in the house, crate trained and housebroken. Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. Baby Thunder is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
