A volunteer writes: Handsome Rumble is more than just a pretty face. He comes with all the classic Bulldog traits you know and love, plus a proven kid-friendly track record and a lifetime loyalty guarantee! Stubborn, sweet, sociable and just a tad silly, he lives up to his name by ‘rumbling’ at me from his bed, but the minute we step outside, the grumpy front melts away and he leans deeeep into my legs for snuggles. I rub his barrel body and caress those irresistibly smooshy face wrinkles as he pant-smiles in appreciation, and when I duck in for a kiss he gives me a soft nose snuffle in return. It’s official–we’re in love! Rumble is a calm walker on leash and, as promised, seems house trained, but has his own ideas about which direction we should be heading. When I disagree, the brakes go on and it’s little ol’ me versus 93 pounds of Bulldoggy determination! I admire his independent spirit and I’ve played this game before, so with a combination of a harness leash, a few treats and a pleading-yet-firm tone of voice, we’re soon heading for the park. When it comes to Rumble’s favorite hobbies, almost everything is a distant second to socializing. Though he takes treats politely and poses rather well, it’s clear he’d much prefer cuddling or chilling out with his four-legged friends to modeling a bandanna for photos. A family pet since puppyhood, Rumble knows what it takes to be a good boy. We’re told he follows commands for down and give paw, is crate trained for up to 5 hours, never guards his toys or food, and while his sheer size meant he could be a bit rough in play, he was always relaxed and friendly with his little human brothers, aged 4 and 9. So don’t let his grumbling fool you, this Rumble’s a straight up mushball who likes to live and love large, and has the big heart to match. Bring home a genuine New York character today! Another volunteer writes: I have a few words to add: amazing, lively friendly, playful, fun, bouncy, sweet, loves butt scratches, loves rolling around on his back waving his legs in the air, and gives a quick woof and a bow when ready to play.
