BRONSON

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Bronson is a gorgeous American Bull Dog who came to Southridge in desperate need of a new start. This poor boy had been abused by his previous owner and has really struggled to come to terms with trusting people again.
When Bronson first arrived with us, he was very stressed and even going for a walk was too much for him to cope with. He would jump and grab his harness and lead so that even getting him out of the kennel was virtually impossible. This wasn't him being naughty, this was him taking his frustration out on what we believe, was possibly what was used to hurt him in the past.
We have given Bronson time to settle and given him the space he needed to learn to trust again. We have put training plans into place and slowly but surely Bronson has made good progress. He loves attention! In the mornings, he even wants cuddles before he goes outside, if he doesn't get his tummy tickled, he doesn't get off of his bed! Bronson loves being around people he knows, he is very affectionate and loves to run and play. We are still working really hard with Bronson to help him learn that the lead is not a threat to him anymore. He walks really well around the compound on the lead whilst we hand feed him which he loves! But are still taking it slowly to walk around the centre as he still finds this a lot to cope with.
Bronson new owner must be a really dedicated person who promises to continue working with Bronson, proving to him that he deserves the best possible life. Bronsonwent for a lovely walk with someone away from the centre so we do believe that part of his frustration is being at the centre surrounded by lots of smells and other animals. We are looking for an adult only home for him where he can settle into the home slowly without any pressures and stresses as he doesn't cope with change very well. He likes his own comforts and we want him to be as relaxed as possible when he goes home. His new owner must be very patient and caring and although we want Bronsonto find a new home very soon, we also want it to be the right home for him. He doesn't need any more upset and disruption to his life.
Bronson is a very good boy around other dogs and loves to play! He gets very excited and does sometimes play rough but that is just his breed and size! He can't help having huge feet and being a bit clumsy!
Bronson isn't available for public viewing purely because he finds this quite stressful. This doesn┬┐t mean that he is not one of our most desperate dogs. Please consider offering Bronson a new home. Staff will be more than happy to give you some more information about him and if everything matches with what he needs, we will be more than happy to introduce you to this big lovable boy!
