    Meet the regal Sir Vergilius 'Virgil' Bocelli. Virgil was brought into a shelter at 8-10 months old as an abused and neglected malnourished boy. He had been locked in a kennel 24/7 and only brought out to be hit. When he came to the shelter he was so scared of everything including his own shadow that he would defecate himself every night and urinate upon seeing people. He had a chance encounter with an animal control officers own dog and Virgil came out of his shell. The aco knew he wouldn't last in the shelter and agreed to help him get to his next step and help him through his fears. He had never been on grass before!! He was scared of ... (Read More)the sensation but quickly realized how wonderful life could be. He has come so far in a short amount of time. Virgil gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and even cats. He loves to play in the yard and lounge on the couch. He is completely house broken and is now comfortable being kenneled for short periods of time. Virgil can be extremely shy around new people and needs a family that can be patient with him and show him how to trust and how to be more social. Virgil is a submissive playful soul who just needs someone who can help show him the way. He would do well with another big dog to play with and interact with. Virgil is neutered, vaccinated and kept on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. Virgil is in urgent need for placement as the aco can not keep him much longer and knows that going back to the shelter may not only be a set back but could be a death sentence for him. It is very important for this boy to be able to stay out of a shelter setting and go on to a loving family home. If interested in adoption it will be necessary for the person to fill out an adoption application by sending a request for more information to the contact information listed and be able to provide vet reference contact information. Adequate fencing is a must and the understanding that Virgil will never be made to he an 'outdoor only' dog. Virgil is a big dog at 84 pounds and approximately 11-13 months old. (Less)

lnteresting American Bulldog Trivia Low-Cost Kansas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The American Bulldog thrived in the colonial American South due to settlers' problems with feral pigs. American Bulldogs were their best means of controlling the pigs. Some American Bulldogs can jump six feet in the air. American Bulldogs have fought wild dogs, bulls, and even fire while defending their masters. The American Bulldog is a much closer relative of the Old English Bulldog than the modern English Bulldog is.
