Blossom – Old Tyme British Bull Dog – 4 years old.
Update – Blossom is a little dream boat who is doing really well. Blossom’s skin is looking very good and she absolutely loves her daily skin rubs and her baths. These are designed to protect her skin while we wait for her hair to grow back. We tentatively think that there may be a tiny bit more fur and there appears to be some definition in the colours and we are starting to see tan patches. While we are spending so much time with Blossom we have took the opportunity to put in some training and she’s doing really well considering that she had none. Blossom now sits for us and her little bum hits the floor the minute she sees us with a treat, she’s starting to even give us her paw. One think is for sure and that is Blossom is always up for lots of love and affection.
Original write up – No you’re not seeing things, Blossom is virtually bald! Blossom was handed to the dog Warden by a couple who said she was stray. She is very special.
Blossom has been to our vets and she’s had tests done and our vet feels that her hair loss is due to an extreme hormonal reaction to having puppies. (It looks like lots of them as well !) It’s a bit like us really, women often notice that their hair thins after having a baby then after several months it returns. Well, that’s the hope for our Blossom. We hope it returns once her body sorts it’s self out. We have no crystal ball though.
Blossom is probably a stray because she has served her purpose.
Blossom is just your typical British Bull Dog who is exuberant and loves everyone. People who know the breed will know exactly what we mean.
She is rambunctious and initially full of energy and then she runs out of steam after about 15 minutes.
Blossom’s sunny, upbeat personality is infectious and puts and smile on all of our faces.
Blossom loves her cuddles and her tummy tickles and if she has half a chance she will give you kisses.
Blossom likes cuddly toys and she will sometimes play with a squashed football.
Blossom will let you know when anyone comes to the door and she will bark and growl and then when the door is opened she will proceed to welcome them like long lost old friends who have come to see her!
Blossom will sit for you sometimes if you ask her to, but this does need a lot more work.
Blossom will need a robust family, preferably a family who know the breed and understand them.
At this point Blossom may need a little coat and sun cream in the sun.
Blossom will be neutered soon once we feel her body has recovered enough and we will cover that even if she is re-homed before.
Blossom could be left for up to 3 hours and not on a regular basis. She will require a garden with 5 foot security. We re-home in a 50 mile drive of Bourne Lincs. Appointment only.
