Dog of the Week: This American Bulldog Mix is a Social Butterfly


By Agrippina Fadel

They say dog years are longer, but this seven-year-old American Bulldog mix is still young at heart – and loves children.

Deandra weighs 58 pounds and has been at the Broward County Animal Care since last September. According to staff, she’s quite the social butterfly and likes meeting everyone, especially kids.

During a recent lunch date with a volunteer, Deandra was a definition of wonderful. She is extremely friendly, follows commands well, and stays calm in public. This pup is eager to meet her forever family and deserves a loving home, hopefully with a little buddy to play with.
