BUNKER

Are you an experienced pet parent looking for a spunky, silly buddy? I might be your man. Two and half year-old, 24-pound Bunker here. My friends call me Bunk, and my foster parents call me Bunky Monkey the Hunky Chunky or some other ridiculous rhyme because, well, they’re silly…

I’m handsome, and I know it, but don’t go falling in love with me from looks alone because I have some special medical needs that my parents will need to monitor.

I came to SBRET via the talented staff at UTVMC where I was an owner surrender due to the extensive surgery I required. SBRET took responsibility for me and the UTVMC got to work. Due to the location of the bladder stones I had, UT had to reroute my urethra. They constructed a new opening that I’ll urinate from for the rest of my life. This surgery was successful, the recovery was long, and I require a family that will understand and follow the vet’s guidelines to keep me healthy long term. While I was with UT they also widened my nostril openings and did surgery on my soft palate all to help me breathe better!

What are the guidelines? I’ve healed up really well from my surgery, though. So just keep me on the healthy track and I’ve got brighter days ahead! If you think you’ve got the experience and ability that Funky Bunky requires, read on!

I am a young French Bulldog with maybe a bit of Boston Terrier thrown in for extra pizzazz. When I first recovered from surgery, I had no concept of personal space and was basically an unstoppable bowling ball. I hadn’t felt healthy in so long I had to celebrate! But, my foster family and foster dog siblings, combined with the lower hormones from being neutered, have helped me calm down. I love cuddles, relaxing on the couch, and chewing my nylabones. I sleep well in my bed in the sunroom each night, and I enjoy hanging out in there with my toys and bones while my foster my works from home. They call it my room now, and I happily bounce in there when I’m asked to go to my room so she can work.

I was really underweight due to my health issues, but now I’m at a healthy weight. I’m very trainable, very smart, and I’m a good listener. I listen when told “no” and I don’t like getting in trouble. So, I like to make you proud. I still have all that Frenchie liveliness when we play. We’ll have good fun if we wrestle, fetch, or play around together. I’m a good guy just looking for a family to shower me with love and attention.

A few other needs and facts for me:
I know my needs list is pretty specific, but you’re going to get a loving, sweet, fun guy if you’ve got the right home for me! I am neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on all vaccines, flea and heartworm prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
