Make This Puppy Lucky: Doodle Hopper the Bully

Let’s make this goofball of a puppy lucky!

Why rush through life when you can take your time to roll in the grass and smell the flowers? That’s Doodle Hopper’s philosophy! Slightly shy but super sweet, this easy-going, laidback chunk of a fellow is looking for a forever home that will accommodate his passion for snuggling. After all, humans make excellent pillows!

Name: Doodle Hopper.

Age and sex: 4-year-old male.

Breed: Bully mix.

Size and weight: Large and 55 pounds.

Coat: Short and brown and white.

Location: Stray Rescue of St. Louis in Missouri.

Activity level: Medium-low.

Likes: Most dogs, snuggling, belly rubs, treats, lounging around, and rolling in the grass.

Dislikes: Hyperactive dogs.

Yard requirements: Although a fenced-in yard isn’t a necessity, Doodle Hopper would love his own outdoor space where he could lie in the grass and sunbathe.

Kids: Best with older kids (youngsters might overwhelm him).

Dogs and cats: Great with most dogs, but hasn’t been tested with cats.

Health issues: Doodle Hopper is heartworm positive and is scheduled to begin his treatment on May 16, followed by two injections a month later. He can be adopted at any time throughout his treatment, which is covered by the rescue until his retest comes back negative.

His story: He was found as a stray on March 2. Although his past is unknown, the scars on his body point to a hard life. Despite his difficult beginnings, Doodle Hopper adores people and has so much love to give!

His ideal forever home: Doodle Hopper would thrive with a responsible, low-key person, couple, or family who will give him lots of time and affection. He would also benefit from having a laidback dog sibling who could help build his confidence.
