    Sugar is looking for her forever home!

    Hi Guys,

    The missus has asked me whether the the hunting fraternity may be able to help with a re-home of a year old Female English Bull Terrier called Sugar.

    The Missus works for a animal behaviorist and Sugar came through their doors for assessment and training advice. Sugar's current Auckland living environment has 3 cats. Which unfortunately is not going to work as she has a extremely high predatory drive that would mean she couldn't be left with cats or other small furry animals (unmanaged).

    Hence the need for her re-home and realign her life where she is not in a environment where she is not set up to fail.

    In Sugars assessment she was found to be great with people and other dogs - just not so flash on furry animals and has a very strong drive to seek out prey which made us think that she may have a more aligned life out in the hunting fraternity where she can remain very active and engaged while having a loving family to support her change of lifestyle.

    I do have more information about her so if you are interested want to know more PM me and I'll answer as best I can or connect you directly with the owner.

    Hoping someone out there is looking for a bit of "Sugar" in their lives !!!

    How urgent is the move? My parents will be moving out here at the end of the year and could be interested in a mate for Jesse their 3 year old bullie. They have had bull terriers all their lives and have a 10 hectare block here.

    Sorry, I know it's not an immediate solution but if you don't find one....

    Thanks @Spudattack for the interest, I believe they are looking to re home soonest to give Sugar the best chance of the right environment and family but will pass along your interest also.

    Yes you might have picked up on the painted nalls that she arrived to her assesment with LOL...
    She wanted to put on her best for her photo for you all - you know!

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Shit @Rushy I thought you'd get it that the both of us are as rough as guts, while white sugar is always just a bit more refined...

    Tempting.
    But I think she will be too much energy for my ten year old bully to handle.
    I hope you find a good home for her.
    Great dogs for the right person, the clown of the dog world, or the toddler in a dog suit.
